Clovermead Wickward dreams of adventure.  But it is not too likely that adventure will find the 12-year-old daughter of a country innkeeper.  But things are about to change for Clovermead.  A traveling stranger comes to the inn and teaches her how to use a sword.  And then she finds a pendant that her father insists she hide.  It seems that her father stole the gem from Lady Cindertallow, the ruler of Chandlefort, many years ago.  Yes, things are about to change drastically.  When Clovermead picks up a bear tooth, the transformation begins.  She sprouts fur, grows claws and is out for blood.  Clovermead knows she must suppress the bloodlust but it becomes increasingly difficult for her.  And as she learns more about her father's past, it becomes impossible for Clovermead to control her new powers.
