Back cover copy

Shapeshifters, vampires, and all manner of monstrosities are raining hell down on a small western town--which is why Skinner Paige Strobel is headed there with a band of Old World Skinners who have been battling monsters for centuries using antiquated, yet oddly effective weaponry. Meanwhile, Paige's sometime-partner/sometime-lover Cole Warnecki is being held prisoner by persons--or things--unknown: framed, tortured, and beaten for the slaughter of cops at a vampire warehouse in Denver.

For Paige and Cole, a search for answers has become a battle for survival. The future of unsuspecting humankind is balanced on a knife blade. And the Apocalypse is a certainty unless they can uncover the truth behind a terrible force powering monsters and hunters alike . . . and find out why--after horrific werewolf attacks in KC and bloody carnage in Philly--Skinners are suddenly, inexplicably, turning against Skinners . . .
