Asher Lake, a wolf in his ani-shift form and Keeper to his people and the protégé’s left in his care, knows what he wants. He wants to reform the Union, become a better man, and test fate. Determined that Elle Ison has a place in his life, he sets out to discover just what that place is—while pursuing the one thing that might open doors to provide answers, to the curse hanging over his life, namely his stolen medallion.
Elle Ison, along with Asher’s brothers, Ari and Nixon, share two specific things in common—a love for Asher—and a desire to keep him alive anyway they can. Even if that means setting off on a fool’s quest or making certain sacrifices to keep him that way.
This isn’t some fairytale where the hero wins….This is the absolute truth about this series! Time is not on Asher’s side. And this is proving difficult for the entire Lake family. I have to be honest. At the beginning of the series I wasn’t sure if I was going to like Asher or not. Due to him being so closed off trying to protect himself he is a bit socially inept. But in this book we really see him evolving and now I don’t know what we would do without the one and only Asher Lake (and his mints). Actually all the characters are evolving. Asher wants to be a better man, wants to do good things for the Ani-shift community but there are others that are going to stand in his way. You can tell he wants to love too. Oooh how he wants to let it all go! At least this is what I read into it anyway, haha! As he starts to trust and opens up to be trusted all hell starts to break loose. All of the Lakes share a love for Asher and they will do anything to keep him alive. There are secrets that are being discovered. But with answers always come more questions. The new questions and the decisions that are being made will continue to keep you on the edge of your seat and trying to figure out the next move. Look out too because this one will throw you for a loop!

When it seemed like I was only an F away from flunking out of the sixth grade, a retired schoolteacher took me under her wing. After some tutoring and testing, she informed my parents that the reason I was having trouble in school wasn’t that I was dumb but instead dyslexic. When my stepfather heard this, he decided to take me to a used bookstore with the belief that the best way to improve my reading skills was to read. Some of the books were hard to get through at first, but with his encouragement, I refused to give up. We made many trips to that bookstore, and I especially loved the science fiction and fantasy sections. Then one day, after complaining about the ending of a particular book, my stepfather told me that if I didn’t like the books that I had been reading, then to write one myself—so I did.
My first attempt resulted in a horribly written western when I was fourteen, staring a cocky gun-slinging cowboy by the name Curt Calhoun. Curt along with his seven brothers, who all shared C names in common, may never have seen the pages of a book, but that was the day I started writing, and never stopped.
