- William is a professional werewolf hunter. Hinted at, but already confirmed in Chapter 3.
- William is a werewolf.
- His son does not know about the latter.
- Sarah can handle herself against an eight foot werewolf just fine.
- Werewolves are inherently nice to dogs. (I won’t spoil why, I’m not that crazy.)
- The Feral is something William has never seen before.
Am I spoiling anything by revealing this early?
Initially I thought I was. It was supposed to be a huge event in the story. However, as I continue to write the story- Michael’s arc is personal. William’s impromptu transformation is a huge event in his son’s life. Everything he sees, every conversation he has, every event he is personally part of, will be impacted by his father. With this reveal out of the way, I can keep the major events a secret. William’s condition is part of the official synopsis now.
After the traumatic ending to a serial killer’s case, Lieutenant Sarah Bryson is put on administrative leave. Seeking solace, she heads to Ruby Caves, New Hampshire with her family. There, the past refuses to let go of its bite. Her son Michael learns that his father is a werewolf, and after a horrifying night must come to terms with his new life. Quickly after their arrival, the family learns about the discovery of a new breed of werewolves. These larger, faster creatures are disturbing the natural balance of the forest around them. With little resources, the Bryson family must survive a situation spiraling out of their control with proactive measures and uneasy alliances.
