In the Outlands, a family struggles to survive against the harsh winter of Vithalia and wolf-shifters that rise with each full moon. Only now, the monsters appear without moonlight, as prophecy foretold. One wolf attacks a young Viking named Arud, forcing him to leave home with his sister, Lykke, and find safekeeping with an uncle whom they’ve never met. Who they never knew existed. A beautiful girl sweeps Arud off his feet. His sister may hold the key to their people’s survival. Family secrets unravel as they race across the realm before the Wolf Moon fills the night sky.
