Born with a twisted paw, Faolan was abandoned as a wolf pup and left to die. But not only did he survive and make it back to the wolf clan, he proved himself to be one of the worthiest wolves of all.
But just as Faolan is about to take his place on the revered Watch, a bear cub is stolen. The bears blame the wolves, and a war is coming... unless Faolan can track down a traitor and rescue the bear cub in time.
