Description

Being only half-vampyre in a high school like Danny Gray's makes you a whole loser. But Danny manages to escape the worst of the bullying thanks to genetic treatments that make it look like Danny's other half is human, not wulf. Which is a good thing.

Ever since the development of synthetic blood SynHeme vamps have become society's elite, while wulves like his father work menial jobs and live in bad neighborhoods. Wulves are less than second class citizens; once a month they become inmates, forced to undergo their Change in dangerous government compounds.

Most of the time Danny pretends his wulf half doesn't even exist, but lately he's been having some weird symptoms-fantastic night vision; a keener-than-usual sense of smell; and headaches, right around the full moon. Even though it's easy to be in denial, it's hard to ignore the evidence. With a new girl digging into his past and watching his every move, there's only a month until the next few moon, and time is running out. How long can Danny hide what he is?



About the Author

Peter Moore has been writing fiction since he was eleven years old, and became an amateur lycanthropologist even earlier. Because he studied hard in high school and ate all his vegetables, he was able to attend Vassar College and Columbia University. Though he briefly considered a career in the FBI, America can rest easy: it didn't work out. Instead, he has worked as a screenwriter, college professor, English teacher, and guidance counselor. He lives with his wife and two kids in Westchester, New York. This is his third book for young adults. He strongly denies all rumors that he is a werewolf. Still, he won't say where he goes every month during the full moon.
