Guardsmen are always matched in a bonded pair. The Protector can shift into a weredog, and the human partner is his Handler. They are incredibly rare and highly valued, but people also fear them for their mystical abilities. No Protector in living memory has outlived his Handler—until Alex Taylor. Now a widower, Alex lives a lonely half-life and faces day after day of grief with no hope for happiness in the future. When he unexpectedly bonds with the young and vibrant Handler Marcus Stephanek, Alex is angry and unwilling to leave the memory of his former Handler behind. He pushes Marcus away and tries to distance himself from their bond. But then a mysterious villain who has been secretly shadowing Alex for years sets his plan in motion. Alex and Marcus must learn to trust their bond and love each other, or risk not only their own lives but the lives of those closest to them.

...I don't think I quite understand the universe. There are these people and they do stuff, and clearly there are more of them if there's an Institute, but they can't use them and have to rely on Alex? ...is this like they're really rare so they get assigned to special jurisdictions and apparently t...

When some kids hit puberty the manifest as Protectors (shifters) and Handlers (human). Handlers and Protectors pair bond in t...
