Gwen Williams has been hiding a strange and fantastic secret: she's a shapeshifter. Although society may tolerate vampires, centaurs, and "Others" like Gwen, there are plenty of folks in her small Washington town who don't care for her kind.

When a new werewolf pack moves into the area, tensions rise--and Others start showing up dead, including someone close to Gwen. Despite the methodical murders, the police are ignoring evidence that suggests a serial killer. In the midst of terrible loss and danger, Gwen--along with a mysterious and sexy guy who happens to be a Japanese fox spirit--risks her life to find the murderer. But Gwen is already the killer's next target . . .

PRAISE: "This who-done-it is an unusual blend of mystery and fantasy, starring original characters not often featured in modern urban fantasy for teens. I really enjoyed it."--Annette Curtis Klause, author of Blood and Chocolate

"Other has it all: love, shifters, pookas, and nail-biting action. What's even better, Kincy's characters are vibrant, real, and lovable. This is a debut that leaves you aching for more."--Carrie Jones, New York Times bestselling author of Need and Captivate
