The military once upon a time created werewolves. Generations later, even if the gene has been silent since inoculation, people are still turning. When they do, the person, and only them, are transported to a secure reservation dedicated only to pack land.
This is how we meet Ward and Ava. Ava is Ward’s four year old daughter and on her first day of school she turned. Ward received the call and before he could arrive she was already taken. All the government would give him was a check and some advice to forget she existed. Ward refused, called in favors, and almost died getting to his the fence that separated himself and his daughter. Now he had to find a way inside.
Henry was the the pack’s alpha. All alpha’s were obligated to join the military and perform special ops missions. He was on said mission when Ward shows up at the compound. His second in command has to make a last minute decision.

He’s had enough and Ava’s time might be at an end if she won’t change back to a human.
