Mackenzie and Amy were best friends.

Until Amy was brutally murdered.

Since then, Mac’s life has been turned upside down. Not only is she being haunted by Amy in her dreams, but an extremist group called the Trackers has come to Mac’s hometown of Hemlock to hunt down Amy’s suspected killer:

A lone, white werewolf.

Lupine syndrome—also known as the werewolf virus—is on the rise across the country. Many of the infected try to hide their symptoms, but bloodlust is not easy to control.

Wanting desperately to put an end to her nightmares, Mac decides to investigate Amy’s murder herself and discovers that there are lots of secrets lurking in the shadows of Hemlock, most of them involving the people she cares about—Amy’s boyfriend Jason, her good pal Kyle, and especially her late best friend. However, in her pursuit of the truth, Mac is also thrown into a maelstrom of violence and betrayal that puts her life at risk.

This thrilling novel is the first in the Hemlock Trilogy, a spellbinding supernatural mystery series filled with provocative questions about prejudice, trust, lies, and love.
