Nine-year-old Cindy Ann Biggs knew things no one else knew; saw things no one
else saw. Ever since she had nearly died of typhoid fever, the gift of second
sight had been hers. Only it didn't seem like such a gift when the kids at
school or the citizens of Coleman, Tennessee treated her like an outcast... or

flesh crawl. Until Old Man Brice died. Now the people of Tucker's Mill,
Tennessee, would be forced to believe.
Their kind once ruled the Emerald Isle - with black terror. They spilled hot
gore under the full moon and cracked human bones to feast on the living marrow.

was forced to move their hunting ground to the new world...
Now the werewolves roam in Old Hickory, Tennessee, preserving their eternal
youth on a gruesome diet of human flesh. Once a lunar month, when the moon
swells bright, the Howler's eerie cry shatters the night!
