Raised in the red deserts of Arizona and fed stories of the old ways by her grandmother, Bettina San Miguel has learned to become a healer. She makes fetishes and pouches for anyone that needs one. She feels the world instead of seeing it. Because of that gift, she never takes anything at face value.
One day, she feels a stirring, a calling, to go to Newford. She's needed there, so she leaves her beloved red deserts and heads out the cold city. Living in an artist's community and working as a model, she starts to see the Shadow Men, the Gentry, whom she calls "Los Lobos", the Wolves, One of whom is different from the others. She gets pulled into an ancient battle of First People against Fae, something her Abuela warned her against.
