Summary:  Nova Huang knows more about magic than your average teenage witch.  She works at her grandmothers' bookshop, where she helps them loan out spell books and investigate any supernatural occurences in their New England town.

One fateful night, she follows reports of a white wolf in the woods, and she comes across the unexpected:  her childhood crush, Tam Lang, battling a horse demon in the woods.  As  a werewolf, Tam has been wandering from place to place for years, unable to call any town home. 

Pursued by dark forces eager to claim the magic of wolves and out of options, Tam turns to Nova for help.  Their latent feelings are rekindled against a backdrop of witchcraft, untested magic, occult rituals, and family ties both new and old in this enchanting tale of self-discovery.
