The attack on Winter Harbour has been warded off – at a high price: Nathan has been captured. Only fragmentary visions give Quinn hope that he is still alive. Even though the Council of Shifters doesn’t trust her, they form a search party. But suddenly Quinn herself is in danger and is forced to realise that her fate and that of her biggest enemy are closely connected.

About the Series

They are powerful. Majestic. And only partly human. Almost no one knows of the existence of the different groups of Shifters who have always lived in Winter Harbour on Vancouver Island, Canada, in secret. The largest tribe, the Mountain Lions, are facing off with their archenemies, the Black Panthers. And just as nature needs day and night, each Shifter needs a Singer – a permanent contact who is capable of communicating with the Shifter in animal form.
