Marissa lands in a cornfield and watches in horror as the car explodes with Brody, Evie and Tyler trapped inside. From out of nowhere the wolf- like creature pounces on her chest pinning her to the ground. Marissa struggles with the beast holding it at arm’s length as it goes for her throat!
As the sound of sirens fill the air the wolf turns and pricks his ears. Instead of going for her throat-- it instead takes a huge bite out of her rib area and bounds off into the night.
Weeks later Marissa does recover from her injuries, but when she tries to tell others about her encounter with the wolf no on believes her, not her family, not her friends and not Cutter's Landing sheriff, Michael Morris. She returns to Cutters Bend looking for answers as to how the wolf like creature came to be. A creature left to roam, torn between this world and that of the outer world wreaking havoc where ever he goes.
Like a man who had gone too long without food or water, he devoured her lips. She met him kiss-for-kiss, loving the feel of his lips on hers.
The two hadn't made it to her bed, but had made love on her living room carpet. After making love, they had snuggled together on her sofa. The words Brody had whispered in her ear that night, "Now that I've found you, I'll never let you go," still thrilled her. She smiled at the memory and her cheeks flushed in the darkness…
She turned back around and leaned over the seat and removed the lid from the cooler, her fingers skimmed over a cold can of soda.
"What the hell!"
At Brody's shout, Marissa jerked and turned her head. A creature, a dark, obscenely–shaped wolf, sat on the car hood. Wild, red-rimmed, yellow eyes glared through the windshield like a predator stalking its prey.
Its long, black snout opened. Jagged fangs dripped dark blood, and it snarled like a rabid dog.
Brody gripped the wheel and swerved. The headlights danced crazily in the night sky, then held steady on Mile Marker 59.
