In the vein of Kelley Armstrong and Patricia Briggs, Amanda Carlson's debut is a new urban fantasy that rewrites the werewolf myth. . . It's not easy being a girl. It's even harder when you're the only girl in a family of werewolves. But it's next to impossible when your very existence spells out the doom of your race. . . Meet Jessica McClain -- she just became part of the pack.

Our customer reviews
Not only was Jessica McClain born the only female of the werewolves but the first Lycan seen in thousands of years. Shortly after her birth, the Cain Prophecy surfaced. Stating: "As a female in Wolf Skin rises, the unborn Daughter of Cain is born; In her the beast shall lie, well hidden in True Form; And from this day forth, the Wolves of the Night shall pay; Blood and flesh of their bones, her mighty hand shall slay; The end of the race will close at hand; When the Daughter of Evil rules the land." Adolescence went by without Jessica shifting so the wolves became less wary of her. However, still being feared she decides to leave the compound where her father is Alpha and assume the identity of investigator Molly Hannon. Unexpectedly ten years later, at the age of twenty-six, Jessica shifts for the first time. Now not just the wolves but all supernaturals are interested in Jessica. I loved this book. I was happily reading along, suddenly I looked at my clock to see it was 4 a.m. I just couldn't put the book down, and it was worth being tired the next day. It is fast paced with never a dull moment. Amanda Carlson does a wonderful job with book one in the series.
