The burly, furry members of the International Bear Brotherhood can't resist a pitcher of beer or a knock-down-drag-out bar brawl. But the fun's over when one of their own disappears without a trace, causing his lover, Angus, to set out on a quest to find him at any cost. Hairy as a real bear because of a medical condition, Angus roams the urban wilderness like a grizzly on the trail...until the trail finally leads him into a nightmare world where everything he knows and loves is on the line. Transformed in ways he never imagined, Angus faces a savage end unless he can rise up to claim the heritage that only a Bear like him could ever hope to master. Don't miss this surprising story by award-winning writer Robert T. Jeschonek, a master of unique and unexpected fantasy that really packs a punch.
