They are then released into the U.S. by the Department, allowing them to maul every innocent soul they find. At the 25th of that month, the end of the event, the werewolves are taken away, by the Megacorporation's enforcers, back to the Department, where they will be executed.

Peter, his brother, sister, love interest, a bully and his friend find themselves trapped in their gated neighborhood packed with werewolves and in a deadly fight to seek shelter. Should they seek shelter? Or let themselves perish? This is book 1 in a series.
