“I like you. You’re nice, and you’re funny and you don’t smoke, and okay, werewolf, but that’s not all the time. I mean, three days out of the month I’m not much fun to he around, either.”—Willow
When Buffy the Vampire Slayer arrived in Sunnydale, she befriended a bookish, insecure girl named Willow. As a Slayerette, Will uses her computer prowess for good, hacking into electronic government files and researching obscure rituals on the Web. But Willow’s love life is severely lacking, consisting of an unfulfilled crush on her friend Xander and a short-lived fling with a deadly demon she met over the Internet.
Through her often life-threatening experiences with the Slayer, Willow gains the confidence to just be herself in the peer pressure-filled world of high school. And when her first real boyfriend, Oz, turns out to be a bit…unusual…in his own right, Willow is just the girl to prove that love really is blind…and a little scary.
Long have the packs lacked a great leader. Scattered far and wide, they have hunted as best they could in the hard lands, in places where their predations could be passed off as the work of true wolves. Instead of PROWLERS.
When nineteen-year-old Jack Dwyer’s best friend Artie is murdered, he is devastated. But his world is truly turned upside down when Artie emerges from the Ghostlands to bring him a warning.
With his dead friend’s guidance and the help of the one person who doesn’t think he’s insane, Jack learns of the existence of the Prowlers. Under bold new leader Owen Tanzer, the Prowlers, already eight packs strong, have united. They move from city to city, preying on humans until they are close to being exposed, then they move on. And unlike werewolves of legend, they aren’t human beings whom the moon transforms into wolves…they are savage beasts masquerading as humans.
Jack wants revenge. But even as he hunts the Prowlers, he marks himself—and all of his loved ones—as prey.
