The daughter of Polish immigrants growing up in the 1830s on the Missouri frontier, Nadya knew she was not like other girls. But when she became a woman and the Change came, she discovered just how different she was. For Nadya was a shape changer, a werewolf like her Polish immigrant mother and father before her.

After coming through a great personal tragedy brought about by her trusting nature and burgeoning sexuality, Nadya heads west to California, seeking a place to be wild and free. Nadya befriends the more cultured Elizabeth and the prepubescent Jenny, and together, the three young women fight their way across the vast American frontier. En route, they encounter rattlesnakes, Indians, the remains of the cannibalistic Donner party, and Elizabeth’s repressed sexuality, which leads to an affair between her and Nadya.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Thoughtful and entertaining.”

    San Francisco Chronicle

  • “With its strong heroines and passionate storyline filled with romance, adventure and dangers both physical and moral, this novel will appeal to a wide array of readers, not just those who shiver with delight when the moon is full and the wolf’s bane blooms.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Based on thorough research, featuring convincing characterizations, and sparked by a page-turning pace (despite the fact it is so richly detailed that you want to slow down now and then), this is a comprehensively excellent yarn.”


  • “This historical fantasy, sympathetic to wolves, is highly recommended.”

    Library Journal

  • “Rousing historical fantasy…Intense and gripping, with lots of authentic background detail.”

    Kirkus Reviews

    " I'm always on the lookout for werewolf books. While this one was entertaining, there were a lot of issues in it that bugged me. I thought Nadya's personality kept changing throughout the book. Her relationship with Elizabeth was the most disappointing part. There was like.... no emotion. "

    " It was Ok - an unusual take on the werewolf story but a bit repetative. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Machelle | 6/13/2010

    " This was a book that had such great potential and could have been expounded upon greatly. Some parts were long and drawn out and others left you wanting for more to fill in the characters. "
