"They hide in the shadows. Behind the world of men, their own world exists, with its own rules, its own goals, its own fierce battles and veiled enemies. They are shape shifters, town between a human form and an animal one, Panthers and lions, dragons and saber tooth tigers, they've existed in every generation and strived to keep their existence hidden, to keep themselves away from those they call normals. Along the way they've evolved their own organizations, which keep them safe. And the number one rule of all these organizations is that only shape shifter's lives count. Humans are like insects, ephemeral and inconsequential, and can be slaughtered at will." "Kyrie Smith was raised as a foundling. Now for the first time in her life, she has a home and a place. With her boyfriend Tom Ormson, she is part owner of a diner. And Tom doesn't mind if she's a panther shifter because he's a dragon shifter. But suddenly her life is thrown in turmoil. A series of unexplained deaths at the aquarium could expose the existence of shape shifters; an ancient organization of dragon shifters takes a personal interest in Tom; and worst of all, an ancient dire-wolf shifter has come to town. Dante Dire is the enforcer for the most powerful and oldest of shifter organizations. He has been sent to solve a crime - not the crimes at the aquarium, but a crime the human world cannot be allowed to discover." "Someone - or something - has been killing shifters in large numbers, and Dante Dire has been ordered to punish the killers. Anyone, human or shifter, who gets in his way will be eliminated without mercy."--BOOK JACKET.
