Caleb Joelson is a young man on the brink of adolescence who discovers a world he never knew existed: that of the werewolf. As he struggles to come to terms with his new abilities, he grows and matures into the Pack leader position he never asked for. He finds himself disillusioned with the expectations of his Pack and his two on-and-off girlfriends, when one day he meets the most beautiful and interesting person he's ever seen before—an eight-hundred-year-old vampire by the name of Gabriel. Sparks fly, and Caleb's sexuality begins to bloom, pushing him head over heels in love with the world-wise Gabriel. Can he keep his new love secret from his Pack, or will they force him to choose between the life he's always known and the life he could have with Gabriel?
