Her Wolfblood nature - and that of her parents - is her most closely guarded secret. She tries to live as normal a life as possible, but there is danger at every turn, with her best friend determined to track down the secret of the 'beasts of the moors'; and the pull of the full moon every month tempting the Wolfbloods. And on top of this, the trials and tribulations of ordinary teenage life . . . Then into her life steps a stranger, Rhydian, and one who she realises with shock is just like her . . . Maddy and Rhydian must hide their secret from even their closest friends, or the Wolfblood race could be in deadly danger. PULL OF THE MOON is the first in the series of four WOLFBLOOD books.
