Running wild in the Siberian wilderness, an ancient tribe of guardians stand against incursion by their corrupted cousins: the twisted and malevolent skinwalkers.
Elaina discovers a new world of myth and mysticism when two beautiful shapeshifters save her from freezing to death in the Siberian snow. But in a time of fear and doubt, her rescuers face exile from their own kind. In order to protect them, Elaina must become the first human in thousands of years to learn their wild magic.
She has twenty-one days. All she has to do... is the impossible.
Elaina Jacob traveled to Siberia to escape a life of suffocation and toxic relationships back home. She never imagined her escape attempt would lead her into deep into the Stolby wilderness, and the tribe of ancient shapeshifters living within its sacred woods.
Finding herself falling for a trio of otherworldly outcasts, Elaina dares to believe in love—and herself—again. But in order to remain with her new mates, she must become like them: a shapeshifter, blessed by their goddess... something no human has managed in thousands of years.
With a zealous alpha watching her every move, and the tribe's mortal enemies lurking in every shadow, Elaina only has until the summer solstice to prove, to herself and all the tribe, that she belongs with them.
The enemy has raised the stakes, and now Elaina could lose her mates, her magic... even her life.
On the night of the summer solstice, the shapeshifters of the Stolby tribe suffered a tragedy no one could have expected. Athanos, an ancient enemy, has returned, leading a pack of twisted followers to war and spreading a malevolent insanity to their victims. They've already claimed one of Elaina's mates; if she can't find a way to heal the madness, she'll lose Gavri—and countless others—forever.
But no one has ever recovered from the curse of the skinwalker. While Elaina prepares to defy impossible odds once again, Athanos issues a simple demand: she can give up the blessing of shapeshifter's magic and leave Siberia, and her mates, forever, or his skinwalkers will rampage on until every last member of her tribe is dead.
