In Montana, Anton Cheval suffers a nightmare that he fears is a premonition; he worries for his wife Keisha and their infant Lily as well as other Chanku. Keisha and her friend Xandi run together while Anton and Xandi’s mate Stefan watch their babies. Kiesha and Xandi mentally tell their mates about two men tracking them who attack them; three more humans assault the house; all are killed though one breeched the home.

In San Francisco the female Chanku of Pack Dynamics are in Golden Gate Park when humans attack them. They mentally tell their men who come rushing to their aid. The attackers fire shots before fleeing hitting Tinker, but Adam who fixes things heals his wounded shoulder.

In Maine, while two Chanku are away, Adam’s sister Manda and her mate Baylor are attacked. Manda recognizes one of the men is a scientist who experimented on her for twenty-five torturous years when she was half human and half wolf. Baylor kills the trio.

Anton invites the two coastal groups and Ulrich and Millie living in Colorado to meet in Montana to discuss the attacks. Soon twenty one adults and two babies meet in a giant natural cavern that runs next to the Montana home to discuss the concerted attacks and the counter assault; that is in between sexual activity

This is a terrific entry on the Wolf Tales saga as the ensemble comes together from two coastal locations and Colorado to gather in the fourth pack’s enclave in Montana yet the adults contain differing personalities. That is the marvel of Kate Douglas’ erotic fantasy as each adult Chanku remains unique. The threat to their safety in three locations makes for a tense story line; however, the humans seem to have no problems breeching the complexes in spite of the super extraordinary senses of the three packs. Still fans will relish this exciting Chanku tale as the packs assemble to deal with a dangerous threat tot their lifestyle.
