With a grandmother who is unnatural, an anxious mother, and a missing father, Arud’s family tree is rooted in secrets.
Leif Erikson abandoned the settlement in Labrador, Canada, when the ferine attacked and murdered his small crew. A band of families stayed behind to rebuild. Now, the Wolf Moon approaches, a single night when the ferine’s binds to the Dreadlands are broken, freeing them to hunt. But when one appears beneath Arud’s window, his mother rushes him off, urging him to take care of his sister whose sickness grows worse. His world is shaken and family deceptions unravel, when Arud learns his sister may be the key in a century old prophecy. The stakes are raised, and getting safely to the city in the sea becomes more than a quest. It becomes survival.
“…the world Engle has created in this novel is an intriguing one, equal parts familiar and fantastic.” Kirkus Reviews
