Imagine: dark forests in Transylvania. What comes to mind? Only you're not a vampire, you're a wolf. That's what this book is about: an epic tale of good and evil, all told from the viewpoint of the wolves.  
Morgra, a she-wolf with mysterious and frightening abilities, was once cast out of her pack for an unnatural crime and forced to wander the hostile lands of Transylvania alone. She makes herself leader of a strange pack of male warrior wolves. She demands the subservience of all free wolf packs and a tithe of their pups. One among these young has an extraordinary power that the old she-wolf covets: an ability to see into the minds of other animals, including humans. Morgra is prepared to do anything to control this power, and her dark arts can summon demons and the walking dead. But Larka, the young wolf Morgra seeks, was born into a pack with the strength and heart to defy their new leader, and their rebellion will set in motion a great struggle for the minds and souls of all wolves.  Colorado Blue Spruce Young Adult Book Award, 2006-2007
