Jason Donavon walked in darkness, seeking release from his curse. It had the power to destroy everything—to take his humanity. In a world where he no longer belonged, he felt eyes watching him. Someone or something even more sinister than himself stalked the night. But there was beauty in the night as well. The woman who materialized to save him from the forces of darkness seemed from another age, another world—but her mysterious eyes held answers to all the questions he'd been too afraid to ask. She took him to her world, to the wilds of the North, to the forests. Yet in a place of such primitive ancestral customs, where nature ruled supreme, Jason knew greater dangers awaited. He would be forced to battle the beast within, fight his love for a woman forbidden, and discover whether salvation would come from resisting the seductive light of the moon—or in surrendering to it.
