Sara, a Human employee, is thrown together with the Lakes in a struggle for their mutual survival. When the trio is joined by Sara’s step-brother Ryan, a Were-wolf, the group develops into an unusual family whose love for each other must see them through attacks by marauding Hunters, the schemes of Vampire elders and the age old prejudices of Wolf Clans and Human factions. They have no idea that fate isn’t finished with them yet and, along with the rest of the new world, they will witness the dawn of a new age in evolution. That is, if they can survive it.

The world has become dark and dangerous, especially for the children born after the Solar Storm. The Vamphyrs, the human Changelings, and even the Were clans’ children are all exhibiting the effects of an evolutionary leap as they mature to adulthood. Destiny is no exception. She must learn to deal with her evolved gifts as well as her awakening Vampire desires without the guidance of her mother, Aurora, who remains a prisoner of the witch, Mother Zhukov. The father of her heart, Ryan, and the father of her body, Alex, may sometimes clash, but the safety and security of their extended and very non-traditional family is paramount and they make the difficult decision to continue West. Ryan will make the children into warriors and Alex will ensure that their minds are just as deadly sharp. Destiny and the rest of her generation find that they are not so different from their ancestors when their needs and desires awaken with force in their maturing bodies. Destiny must learn to face love and rejection, lust and regret and still survive some of the most dangerous times in her young life. In the end she may find what she seeks, but she may also make a discovery that will forever alter the lives of them all.
18+ This book contains adult themes of erotic intimacy and graphic violence.
