Ferals are Shifters who've reverted to the wild stage, forgetting all about the joys of pizza and satellite TV. Not to mention, Mason is sick of waking up to the feral's rampages, one of which nearly killed him. The feral has been given sanctuary, so Mason can't throw him out--the only thing to do is to find a way to cure him.

She's been a loner most of her life, better able to relate to computers and coding than to people, until she's drawn into the world of the Shifters.
