The dull, boring life of Leila Ulric stretches into the horizon. Little does she know that a new moon rises in the dark skies and brings with it a world of terrible and fantastic creatures known as werewolves. An insatiable curiosity drives her to learn more about these monsters, and so she travels on a journey that will redefine who she is and what she knows.
Brockton is a typical American small town—or so it would seem. But to the citizens of this rural Mid-Atlantic community, it anything but normal. It is the type of town where jaywalking, an unfavorable appearance, or an absent-minded slip of the tongue could criminalize you…for life!
Mort and Emily Avery find out just how difficult life in Brockton can be when they stop in for dinner at the local diner. Before their first day in town is over, they find themselves looking at life in prison—for cancelling their order. Then, as if spurred by the newcomers’ arrival, the townsfolk find themselves caught up in a deadly game of cat and mouse. Who can bring order to a town caught in the throes of iniquity?
