How do you disappear when you come from a family of predators?
A wereleopard, Kess is forced to flee her home and family in Miami once her brother's obsession with her turns violent. She runs from city to city, trying to stay one step ahead of the investigators her family has dispatched to bring her home. Kess ends up in the mountains of North Carolina and attracts the attention of Cormac, a young man with a secret of his own. As she attempts to live as normal a life as her were-nature allows, her brother Sek continues to hunt for her. He believes she is the key to revitalizing their weakened clan and is driven to extreme measures to ensure their continued existence. As Kess' relationship with Cormac deepens, Sek closes in, threatening Cormac's life and Kess' freedom.
Whenthe moon rises, the hunt is on….

The general idea: I'm running from my family because my brother is crazy.
Thoughts upon seeing the cover art: I love the outfit
It made me feel: Being a were-creature might be fun. If only they were real...
Highlight: I enjoyed Kess's transformation from a scared young woman to a strong one that was willing to protect those she loved no matter the cost. I also liked that she didn't just hate her brother, that she missed how he used to be when they were younger.
