“Mercy is required.”
-The Good Shepherd: Volume One of the Werewolf Warden Series by D. Marie Prokop.
Leona Schaeffer is more. More than a seventeen-year-old girl. More than a lonely orphan.
She’s a Werewolf Warden. Inheriting an ancient strength and an ancient burden.
Summoned to the frantic streets of Gilded Age Boston, Leona must enter a world as unfamiliar as it is wondrous. A world of danger, populated by sheep in need of a shepherd.
Without the benefit of a mentor, Leona struggles to continue the noble legacy of her parents: Help the weak. Protect the innocent. Exact mercy. Maintain the peace.
Sadly, not everybody wants peace.
Despite the burden of her heritage, Leona is headstrong and pure-hearted. But can she resist the forces threatening to tear apart everything and everyone she cares about? Death, failure, heartache, responsibility, and family trouble conspire to tarnish Leona’s good intentions.
Mercy is required.
