Logline

IT TAKES MORE THAN SILVER BULLETS TO KILL A WEREWOLF Sylvester's mother died giving birth to him and his father didn't let him forget it until the night he was murdered by a werewolf--the night a full moon determined the course of young Sly's life. Alone in the world, Sylvester is taken in by Michael Winterfox, a Cheyenne mystic and once a werewolf hunter who trains the boy to be a warrior--teaching him how to block out pain, and how to stalk, fight, and kill. As the boy grows, all that makes Sylvester human is sacrificed bit by bit to the hunt. Now, his hatred has become a monster all its own, robbing him of conscience and conviction as surely as the Beast's bite. As he follows his vendetta into the outlands of the occult, options become scarce. And he learns what it takes to kill werewolves ... a perfect willingness to die.

Starting Description

Sylvester James should've been too young for hate, but he grew old on its milk. He should've been too innocent for guilt, but it turned him to stone. There is no solace for a man in an unwinnable war, and he has learned to live by the feud. Time is short to salvage what remains of his soul.

Ending Description

After surviving an encounter with the cannibal spirit the Ojibwe call windigo, Sylvester feels he has been judged by the gods and his course to vengeance has never seemed clearer.
