Drew is a shepherd’s son living on the Cold Coast of Lyssia. Drew isn’t anything like his twin brother Trent, they are so different.
Trent wants to join the Lionguard and see new places. Drew wants to stay and work the farm. Drew’s always had a way with animals and an uncanny ability to avoid danger.  The feeling of danger that he has right now. Something’s out there watching, waiting. When Drew’s father and brother leave to go to market to sell their grain, Drew and his mother are attacked in their home. A hideous creature with a foul stench threathens the two. Drew tries to protect his mother but he is injured and thrown down. He feels very
strange and ill. He cannot get up to help his mother, what is happening to him? His body is transforming, the pain is unbearable. Drew has become a beast, but how? Why?
Drew doesn’t know that he is the last of the werewolves. It may be the only thing that keeps him alive.  (Booktalk written by Susan MacDonald- GSF Committee/Weeks Public Library)
