This novel is not a part of a series, although it might become one. It's the tale of writer Monty Harrison. He is miserable. On the anniversary of his wife's death, coupled with his inability to please his publisher, He is in a deep depression. Maybe a month-long exile at a "writers retreat," among a mysterious group known as the "Alaska Writers Kolony," can rekindle his waning literary fires. The Alaskan writers' captivating stories may not salvage Monty's career but his encounter with an Arctic white wolf, known as "The Mystic Wolf," will become a life-changing experience.
