Jane Cymru has a secret. Normally, she is a practical, sarcastic, kind, down-to-earth girl. But she has another side to her. It is a dark side, a twisted side, a side she must hide from the human world. She is…a fangirl. And her fandom? The infamous Sundown saga, called by some the worst books ever written, and by teenage girls the best. She is aware that the books are poorly written, but she can’t help loving them. The books are a supernatural romance epic about werewolves. But not the werewolves of legend, no. These werewolves are beautiful, magical, immortal spirit warriors who are completely in control of their own powers. For years, Jane has longed to be one, to have a mystical secret, to be perfect like the books’ protagonist Eleanor Snow’s lover Edmond Collins.
And then, on the night of the full moon, a monstrous wolf attacks–and bites–Jane. She wakes up in the hospital, only to have her father explain to her that werewolves are real and monstrous, that he is the head of a group called the Hunters tasked with extinguishing them, and that she is now one of them.
Can Jane survive the changes going through her body, all while walking on thin ice with the Hunters? No. At least, not alone.
What will she face in the next month before the full moon? A coup and a liar? An ancient prophecy and a betrayal? A dark revelation about a childhood friend? A hunt for the cure? Or love triangles? You decide.
The Main Characters
“Oh God, save us from the perils of road rage! You seriously think traffic can make me go into some kind of werewolf-anger-frenzy?”
Jane may be a Sundown fangirl, but she's not stupid. She has a wry sense of humor and okay grades (except in math, but really who cares?). At heart, she's a writer: imaginative, creative, and good with words (though she does get tongue-tied when talking sometimes). Even at eighteen, she's never been in love, unless you count fictional characters, which strangely most people don't. She may have a sharp tongue, but she also has a good heart.

"You’re right. You grew up. I can’t take credit for your mistakes. But I can help you deal with the consequences."
Robb is Jane's childhood friend and has been completely in love with her for years. He seems like an optimistic, happy type of guy, but inwardly he's depressed and living in the past. Despite that, he's kind and smart and would do anything for those he loves.
"Calm down before you start making conspiracy theories. This is how I am."
Morgan is the werewolf hunter assigned to keep Jane from killing anyone. He's a sort of playboy (though he doesn't try to hurt people intentionally), and he can quickly vacillate between charming and surly. He's never had normal relationships, never had any sort of normal life in fact, but he's managed to stay sane.
"I’m not in danger, Jane. Danger…implies there’s a chance of escape."
Emyr is the prince of the organized werewolves. Despite that, he is kind and shy and self-conscious. This is due to the fact that he has a manipulative little brother who claims most of the attention. Emyr's used to being lonely.
"I’m not going to murder your father, Jane. I’m going to run from him, for the rest of my life. And if he catches me, then it won’t be murder when I kill him; it will be self-defense."

Aspen is the werewolf who bit Jane. He spent the more recent half of his life in a cage being experimented on by the hunters. Obviously, therefore, he's a bit bitter and cynical. But he still remembers the life he had before he himself was changed and captured, and that--only that--keeps him alive.
