Matthew Kershaw, a professor and crypto zoologist, is intrigued when he gets a call from an old college friend upset about an attack on a forest ranger in an Idaho valley. A pack of exceptionally large wolves with strange features mauled the ranger, but someone like Kershaw needs to get to the bottom of it. Canceling his plans for the summer, he heads to the scene. The idea of discovering a new species of wolf excites Kershaw, who's convinced that tales of animal totems, animal spirits, skin-walkers, and their brethren that he's heard about since he was a little boy must be rooted in truth. While Kershaw believes that a species of wolf could remain undiscovered deep in the wilderness, he thinks the assignment at hand will most likely end up being a simple wolf population survey. He has no idea that life is about to turn treacherous, and he'll soon be in the middle of a conflict between real-life transgenic wolves, Therianthropes, and human-animal hybrids.
