He was known as the Joan of Arc killer—a sadistic rapist who burned his victims before he murdered them. Rebecca Tamerlane had been staring into this monster's face as he hovered over her broken body, the smell of gasoline in the air. Suddenly her body felt completely whole and surprisingly strong…only it wasn't her body.
The darklings, or shapeshifters, have always lived in peace with the land. As a series of earthquakes rock California, the land is injured. Unable to use their magic to help themselves, the darklings begin to change, and die, with each new quake... Unless they can find out what is wrong with their magic they will undergo changes. Changes like what happened to Rebecca Tamerlane, except they will never end…until death.
