The Blurb On The Back:
Our land is sinking. It’s disappearing into the water. And no one knows how to save it

But there’s one problem: the loup-garou has never been seen before. And with a tropical storm approaching and the sisters deep, deep in the swampland, soon it’s not just their home at risk, but their lives as well …
