18-year-old orphan Riley was just waiting for a bus home from work that night. The dark shadow just appeared and pulled her away from the dimly lit bench, and along with it pulled her away from the life she once knew. It all began with a bite. Dom changed Riley forever that night. All that Riley knew was that a stranger had bitten her on the wrist and kidnapped her. She was taken away to live amongst the Werecats, a hidden species of shapeshifters. They would teach her how to control her gifts with the elements (having particular trouble with earth) and how to live with the shift that occurred every night. Riley was just starting to get comfortable when the WANTED posters started showing up. On a mission to explain to her aunt and cousin why she could never be with them again, Riley discovers that her place in Werecat society runs much deeper than she originally thought. She and her friends must overcome obstacles that could not only cost them their place in the leap, but also their lives.
