Samantha Benton was only twelve years old when her family was attacked and killed by a monster, a myth, a beast of legend. She survived the attack, but not without deep scars—on the outside, and on the inside as well. Now twenty-two, the killings have begun again. The beast is back. Samantha plans on killing the beast, or die trying. This time, Samantha has no choice. She is the beast’s next target. On the very night Thorne McCabe returns home, he is told that the beast that killed his mother and Samantha’s family is back. Now he must protect his brothers and grandparents, and Samantha as well. Yet, not only has the beast returned, but so has the legendary white wolf, The Ghost. Together, with his family and The Ghost, Thorne prays he can keep Samantha safe and rid the world of the beast that could destroy them all. But for Thorne, time is running out. Like Samantha, he too has become the target of the beast.
