The death of the old and familiar brings the new path of a life-altering revelation. When his wife is murdered, Ihon Iraes is forced to find his destiny in the world of men. His revelation is a new form he takes on accident the night he finds her body. What is this monstrous creature that he has become?
Hunting down the killer, he discovers he is not alone. He's part of an ancient Race of creatures that walk like men with the heads and pelts of enormous wolves.
The Wolf-Born Race, divinely-touched children of the seventh son of Japheth, the son of Noah, are a Race unknown to human kind. Their claimed duties, under their supreme Law, the Ancient Creed, are to protect mankind against the powers of evil.
They also have a City hidden in the shadows of the Scottish Highlands--Sanguiatro, City of the Dark Bloods. For thousands of years it has held the secret of the Wolf-Borns' existence within the Black Keep.
Ihon is initiated into the official administration under the Supreme Council, swearing his allegiance to the Ancient Creed, and after many years is finally sent on his first mission: to execute a Rogue Wolf-Born masquerading as an opponent in the Third Crusade.
Finding his true identity, Ihon finds a new family and a new purpose.
