Twenty-third century Cascade. A city divided. A city traumatised by its past. The wealthy elite live in luxury, safe in their high towers. In the city below, the streets are ruled by the “Wolfpack”: the ruthless street gang that rose to dominance in the wake of the Red Night Riot. Cybernetic surgeon Blair Sandburg could have been one of the elite but, pulled into the Wolfpack through some bad choices, he now sees no way out of the criminal underworld. Jim Ellison is a man with a mission and a secret he must keep at all costs. His quest leads him to risk a journey through the depths of the Wolfpack’s territory to Sandburg’s door, beginning an adventure that will change the lives of both men. (Adult themes, explicit)

Crossover: Supernatural. Four stories. In Cry Wolf, ten years after the series, Jim and Blair are living in a small town in the Cascade Mountains, and people are dying, their bodies found mauled by some kind of beast. The Winchesters think it’s a werewolf and plan to hunt it. Ex-cop Jim Ellison and his partner Blair are also hunting the creature. The four are uneasy allies, but Jim’s suspicions of the brothers lead him to uncover their family secret. This is followed by three (non-crossover) stories set earlier in the timeline: Shadows is about Jim and Blair renovating their new home . Home for Christmas is a short story set at, you guessed it, Christmas. Lastly, Wild at Heart tells of a full moon night in the forest near Panther Creek.
