a parallel universe, Breachers are shapeshifters who've fostered human
legends and myths, from Bigfoot to fire-breathing dragons. Pulled from
their own universe by a freak celestial anomaly, they're plopped down in
our world, without the possibility of ever going home. Most adapt,
making the choice to live secretly among humans as humans themselves.
But there are some Breachers who can't handle life as humans. They go
berserk, becoming blood-thirsty murderers that need to be put down
before the rank and file of humanity discover what they really are.
Enter the secret “no name” government organization tasked with

McKenna once he sees her shift into her natural – and I must say,
rather frightening – form.
Holt tries not to rush things with McKenna, but he’s determined to
make her his. She wants Holt in the worst way, but he doesn't know what
she really is. She fears her real form will turn him off quicker than
flipping a light switch. Worried she could shift during sex, she fights
her attraction to him before finally giving in, but she knows having sex
with him doesn't mean they have a future together. Holt of course has
