No one ever said High School was easy. We've all experienced the anxiety of exams, popularity contests, bullies, crushes, and that awkward phase where your very own body is changing out of your control. For Angel Tomassini, however, those changes are unlike anything his peers can identify with -- he's starting to realize he may be a wild were-tiger! Add that to the many stresses in his life already, and its enough to drive him crazy!

This thrilling Young Adult series blends the thrills and excitement of a dozen different genres, from supernatural monster battles to inner-city organized crime, evolving in style as the series progresses. As young Angel matures, learning to live with his newfound abilities, so too does the drama, with a gradual, exciting shift from High School fantasy to gangland conspiracy to a lone-wolf tale of survival. Containing the first three chapters in the wildly popular series, this book reads like a fantastic, engrossing ongoing TV series, with each chapter containing what could be the arc of a single television season. The epic nature of this thrilling universe is filled with mysteries that unfold piece by piece over time, drawing Angel deeper into an age-old war between the various "Dizhi" -- powerful spirits based on an ancient collection of totems that can posses and empower those deemed worthy. Not only must he survive the rivalry between the Dizhi, but the government forces that would see them all destroyed?
