Book 1 in the Wyrdwolf series

Werewolf Isolde is trying to escape from a soured mating when she and her collegues stumble into a major threat to the Were community.

Decent werewolves don't get involved with magic. But decent werewolves do try to help friends in trouble. Even if the friend is a middle ranking magician accused of contaminating a major piece of magic designed to help develop a world-class new drug. Against all her instincts, Isolde sets foot in the murky world of illegal magic - a place where a Were judge is likely to end up dead or part of someone's dangerous game.

When the reckless elf she works with breaks into a scientific establishment to find some answers, things heat up. Suddenly Isolde and her colleagues are trying to crack a conspiracy to genocide and a stomach-churning murder. Add in a pack leader who seems intent on making her the target for any Were to kill, and getting out of this alive looks increasinly unlikely.

The book draws on folklore and mythology from a number of cultures. There are new takes on the nature of being Were and how Weres and the fay might integrate into mainstream human society. On the way, it takes in industrial magic, a touch of science and a dash of current technology. All set in a beautiful part of England.
