student. He loves math and chess and is an excellent member of the debate club. And he takes his job as class monitor seriously.
ut Luke is starting to change. He wakes up to find his bedroom in shambles. He starts having weird dreams and howls in his sleep, even waking his mum who usually sleeps through everything. Then come the hallucinations and sudden cravings for raw meat and fresh roadkill. Yes, roadkill!
uke, the mild-mannered, unpopular student, is a werewolf, and not just any werewolf, but an alpha werewolf, a leader of the pack.
