You really do feel for Mason, you start to know him from the beginning of the book, and you can feel his frustration and also in some ways a sense of not belonging, wanting something more from his life. Wow, does he get the something more from his life, when he is attacked as he walks home one night, by a black werewolf. As he lay dying, someone else approaches him who he thinks will save him, but this time it is a vampire, who does save him, but turns him too.
The vampire, who is called Valerian, more or less keeps Mason a prisoner in his room, and also manages to make Mason think that they are lovers and have been for quite a while. Mason doesn’t know what to think, he can’t remember much, but he believes what Valerian tells him. As Mason settles into life with Valerian, he learns about the Dire werewolves, and how the vampires and Werewolves are still at war.
When the vampires are attacked by the Dire Werewolves one day, Mason is taken by the werewolves, and there he meets the werewolf who bit him first – Finn. At the beginning, Mason seems to really hate Finn, but there is also a pull towards him, which he seems unable to resist. Finn then makes Mason his mate, but Mason still has feelings for Valerian, so he is confused by everything.
However, even though Vampire and the Dire Werewolves have been at war a long time, and he should hate Valerian, Finn finds that he is strangely drawn to him, and he really doesn’t know how to process these feelings. Added to this, things are happening to Mason, which he is not admitting to anyone else.
During one attack, Finn and the other Werewolves manage to catch Valerian, but Mason is not happy with this, and then takes matters into his own hands. But who will he chose now? Will Mason choose Valerian or Finn? Who is his true love??
