Melody Hastings has gone missing.
Sick and suffering from a teenage mishap, Melody is a child in a woman’s body. The town of Woodland Creek turns out to help her father find her—but with Running Deer State Forest in their backyard, the search is going to be hard.
Ava Tsukino knows where she is.
No one will believe her if she tells them, because Ava harbors a secret like so many in Woodland Creek. She is a kami, a Japanese spirit who takes on the shape of a red fox. Ava knows there is very little time to find Melody, because someone is after the woman’s blood at the full moon.
Blaze Riordan can find her.
But he and his father are under the thumb of his grandmother. Forced to follow a path she’s picked for him, he feels trapped and afraid to break out her safe, predictable, planned world. He wants to get away, but doesn’t know what he can do to prove he’s his own man.
Until a little red fox leads him deep into the woods, begging his help to find the missing woman...
Blaze followed the vixen—his Ava in her kitsune form—through the underbrush, hacking away at it to make a clear path for himself.
They could easily see now where the branches were broken from the passage of more than one person. More than that, there was clearly someone struggling as they broke the branches.
“What do they want with her?” Blaze hacked the branches back.
Innocent blood. She trotted through the forest on deadly, silent feet. There are things they use it for, but if they know what they are doing, they will take it under the light of the full moon.
Blaze hesitated. “I don’t think that, given her history, Melody is a virgin.”
Ava glanced back at him. Where did I say virgin? I said innocent, and Melody is about as innocent as they come.
“So the virgin thing...”
