Never come between a mother and her cub.
Grunwald is a sleepy Texas town steeped in legend and superstition. For generations, tall tales about a cursed forest and its giant guardian bear were passed down in whispers and songs until they became town lore. Kelly never put much stock in these stories when she first moved to town… but then children start to go missing.
When her best friend’s daughter disappears into the forest, something awakens in Kelly. Still reeling from the tragedy that robbed her of the chance to have her own family, she takes off into the woods after the girl—and discovers that the legendary mother bear is no mere myth. The bear is on guard against something lurking in the woods with a dark purpose.
Abandoned by both the spooked townsfolk and the congregants of the new megachurch, Kelly has only her instincts to rely on. It’s up to her to save the children of Grunwald from a force that came from a world beyond anything she’s ever imagined. But will she be enough? Or will the ghosts of Grunwald's past plunge the town into a second dark age?
