Wolf is a Four-letter Word
(Book Two of the Eternal Spring, Invisible Forest series)
What do you do when the nightmare is real? That’s the question facing Kellan Faolanni in Wolf is a Four-letter Word, the second book of the Eternal Spring, Invisible Forest series.
Following the betrayal of her sister at the end of the previous book, Kellan Faolanni must set aside her own emotions and thwart an enemy who seems to have the upper hand at every turn.
Kellan, a member of a secret society called the Sankhain, is a shapeshifter, half-wolf, half-human. Kellan’s superiors have discovered a man killed by what appears to be a wolf pack, a rare sight in modern-day Madison. The Sankhain task Kellan to investigate and discover who seems to be leaving this message for her. Meanwhile, Kellan’s friend, Darcy Jameson, a human with no ties to the Sankhain who was also victimized by Kellan’s sister, reveals to her that he’s being stalked. Kellan learns that the killer and Darcy's stalker are one and the same: a faery named Aza. But Aza is a high-ranking member of the Shadow Court, and to kill him would start a war with the fey, a war that Kellan's superiors want to avoid at all costs. Kellan must find a way to eliminate the threat and save her friend. Her solution could cost her everything, including a new relationship with another Sankha, Tony, as well as her sanity.
