Jim Miller, writing as J. Esker Miller, has five previous thrillers that cover diverse but exciting times. But it was Alaska, the northernmost fringe of civilization, that intrigued him most of all. After years of flying over the desolate landscape and hearing the stories of the people there, he imagined a remote island, a desolate, hostile place where evolution was free to create unique creatures. And so, a single pair of shipwrecked Viking war dogs evolved into terrifying Apex Predators that ravaged the island unchallenged. Eventually, the breakup of Arctic ice floated a few of the beasts to the North Slope of Alaska. There, they faced the valiant townspeople of Chintikook Village. Along with a boyish paleontologist and the local schoolteacher, the humans teamed up to battle the attacking creatures they called Super Wolves.
It’s an adventure that pits the fangs and claws of giant devil dogs against the wits and bravery of a small group of townspeople who don’t know how to give up despite impossible odds.

Giant wolf-like creatures prowl silently in the dark woods – hungry and desperate. The townspeople see them as horrifying monsters that must be killed at any cost. But, to the wolves, humans are merely obstacles to their own survival, and obstacles must be destroyed – utterly destroyed.
Ranger Craig James is an advisor to a Hollywood crew filming deep in North Carolina’s misty hills. Ancient Cherokee legends have long warned of giant wolves that once ruled over the woods. Now, footprints in the dark forest reveal that the beasts have returned to reclaim their territory. The film crew, the townspeople, the police, a motley band of TV monster hunters and even the Army seem helpless against them. They should have listened to Craig’s warnings before the stealthy wolves came shrieking out of the night. But a Cherokee medicine man may still hold the answers to their threat.
