A unique and inventive story by award-winning author Lisa Tuttle.
When Danni chooses to spend the school holidays with her godmother, Claire, she thinks she will find a kindred spirit. She doesn't bank on meeting the mysterious Finlay Black, or Claire being on the look out for the Panther of Argyll - the beast that supposedly roams the woods around her cottage.
And she doesn't bank on discovering that she has the 'animal spirit' - a rare and unique ability that not only provides an empathy with animals, but the ability to become them.
But there is a price for letting the animal within loose.
Panthers are wild, primal, strong . . . and most of all free: why remain human when all of this is within your grasp?
