Three weeks after her mother’s death, Rebecca (Reba) Price cannot stand the oppressiveness filling her Texas home. Her sister and aunt, maybe even her father, blame her. She cannot disagree. Hacking into her father’s accounts she takes what she sees as her rightful inheritance and escapes to Montana State University in Bozeman, Montana. She tries hard to convince herself that it’s not to be near where her mother died nor near the sabre-toothed cats, who, for reasons she does not understand, have chosen her as their leader, their goddess, but because she wants to study paleontology. However, as her freshman year ends, the big cats come looking for her. One of their own is dying and they need her. And so she is drawn back into the Montana wilderness only to discover that the plot, which drove her mother to sacrifice herself for her family, is alive and well. As the body count rises–human and sabre-toothed feline–Reba must call upon all her inner power to find a way to bring it to a final end.
