She's determined to protect other young girls from a grisly death, and her raging heart will not rest until every single wolf is dead.

But even as more girls' bodies pile up in the city and the Fenris seem to be gaining power, Rosie dreams of a life beyond the wolves. She finds herself drawn to Silas, a young woodsman who is deadly with an ax and Scarlett's only friend--but does loving him mean betraying her sister and all that they've worked for?" -Information from Goodreads.com
