It was like going against the wind in a blizzard - it was so hard to concentrate on him. But fear and death were staring me right in the face and I knew if I looked away I'd be lost.
Fifteen-year-old March Howe is going through some major bodily changes - the last thing she needs when most people at school already think she's a freak. Little does she know that those changes are leading her into a supernatural world of strange mysteries and terrible danger. March is a were-wolf - but not just a were-wolf. She's the last know female of the species, and that makes her a rare commodity.
Just when the guy of her dreams asks her out, a pack of were-wolves invade her house to take her back to their den, where she must be heralded through her first change or risk certain death. Along the way, she meets the dark and handsome Greyson, her only peer in the pack, and is caught up in the dark intrigue surrounding her new "family" and the strange truth behind her existence. Will she fit in this new, magical world better than she does at school? Will she even survive her first change? Or will the power that's growing inside her destroy her and the entire were-wolf bloodline?
In Book One of the Lone March Series, March Howe must choose between mundane and magical, the familiar and the unknown, freedom and responsibility. Will she decide her fate before the last of the were-wolves decide it for her?

I looked up into the looming, baleful faces of eight were-ravens. They stood around me, hunched over, with watchful, probing eyes. I tried to scream but I was too weak to make noise.

She tries harder than ever to force her life into normalcy but Avery is the only one who can make her see that it's okay to be different, and a bond begins to form between them that neither can fully understand.

I was a bag of bones. I still had skin and hair and probably pumping blood, but for all intents and purposes I was cadaverous.

Surrounded by silver, she finds herself trapped by more than just the room she's confined to.

Meanwhile, Avery is assembling a diverse group of weres to aid in the invasion and to rescue the girl he swore to protect. And while March's human friends may not know her secret, Ruthie Birch does. Enlisting the help of an ally unwelcome by the others, Ruthie devises a plan to join Avery's army, whether he likes it or not.

I dropped to the ground right there, sitting at the foot of his grave. There was nothing to be said. He was buried six feet beneath me. And I felt like my thoughts were buried there with him.
A dark cloud has settled over March Howe's world. Avery's death was horrific on its own but it's also drudged up memories of her adoptive parents' deaths, none of which she seems to have dealt with. And the emotional pain is as bad, if not worse, than the physical kind she suffered in that silver prison at the cat lair. What's more, this darkness represents more than just her grief. There are some shady things happening in Wycherley House and March has to pull herself together and discover the secrets before it's too late.
Virtually all her relationships are strained, to say the least. She feels as distant as ever from Gaia and her school friends. And that trio of guys? All but obliterated. Nightmares as repetitive as they are confusing have claimed her sleep, and her waking hours are spent in self-inflicted solitude. And what draw her out are the curious mysteries now creeping into her new life with the ravens. Fortunately, March makes some new friends who each have her back and unwittingly help her uncover the truth. Meanwhile, Jasper Kellum is having a major life crisis that seems to have only one outcome. And his sister just won't stand for it.
In Book Six of the Lone March Series, March Howe has to force herself out of the gloom of recent events all on her own and move on if she is to have any hope of saving herself or her family. Forgive and Forget is a hard rule to live by when past enemies come suddenly back into her life. But they just might save her skin in the nick of time. The question is: Will these rescues be enough to propel March into the unknown on a quest to save her kind, or will the last of the were-wolves eliminate this prospect with an all-out were war?

I could feel my anger building again. It bubbled and burned inside, covering my whole body. I wanted now to hurt these cats like they were hurting us. They deserved to get all of that pain back.
And I wanted to be the one to inflict it on them.
Out on a goddess-given quest she knows little about, March Howe finds her patience wearing thin. Between her lack of understanding with the mission, the inexplicable dream she keeps having, and Saffron's constant stream of complaints, it's all she can do to keep going forward and not turn back. But she treks on, trying to figure out what the mission is all about and searching for those strange women from her dream.
And if the quest isn't enough, Greyson keeps telling March to seek out Gaia for understanding and strength. But his new found obsession with the stillness is getting on March's nerves. And Jasper can't help but notice the growing divide between March and Greyson. Besides meditation, March is having trouble reconciling her hybrid power with her responsibilities to the were world. But when friends join the group, pieces fall into place and they find themselves in a whole new world.
In Book Seven of the Lone March Series, March Howe steps into the role she was born to play: Savior of the Wolves. War is spreading and more than one group of enemies is after her and her friends. But it's just the practice she needs to prepare for the final battle. Can she take on all these new challenges and save a species that can no longer define her, or will the cats make sure the last of the were-wolves are truly the last?
