In a world where werewolves are a self-governing nation, the strongest were-warriors are paired with human ryders and trained to protect humanity against the anthropomorphic Hyaenidae, their sworn enemies. When a prophecy surfaces tying the fate of humanity to Derek's ability to bond, Talia desperately turns to black magic to summon Derek's true ryder to his side. The spell brings Stiles, an eighteen year-old first year ryder at Torrance Hall into Derek's life, and the two are pulled into a vitriolic relationship, knowing the fate of the world as they know it rests on their ability to bond. However, being the ryder of an alpha wolf is a lifelong commitment of willing submission and absolute devotion. Stiles never expected to be the ryder of an alpha, let alone a brooding, angry prince, but he's willing to do what it takes to save the people he loves. Derek never expected Stiles at all, never expected to want him the way he does. Eames and Arthur are a ryder/wolf couple who understand the challenges of two strong personalities trying to bond. In the process of trying to help the Stiles, Arthur's own past trauma resurfaces, threatening his and Eames' own bond.
