The long-awaited sequel to award-winning River (2006) continues werewolf River Wolfe's struggles through the human world as well as her journey towards her destiny. River, former alpha female of a wolf pack, has been human for nearly four years and is finally comfortable with her life. She has a new pack-consisting of humans, a couple of fellow werewolves, and a weredeer-and a mate she loves more than anything. She's dealt with a year of high school, made more than her fair share of enemies, and has at last accepted that she'll never again turn back into a wolf. Her world and newfound peace is shattered, however, when a woman shows up claiming River is her long-long niece. With no proof to the contrary-as no one believed her werewolf story anyway-River is forced to go with the stranger, far from her family. Once again ripped a life she knew and those she loves, now River must not only struggle with the separation from her pack, but with more and more questions that arise. How will she get home? Who is responsible for this case of mistaken identity? And, most importantly, what could they possibly gain from it all?
