mockupshots-emmaboone24463-mock-00053.pngIn contemporary, small-town Colorado, 12 yr old Matt Del Toro is the greenest greenhorn in his family’s centuries-old business of destroying wolf-like monsters, known as skinners.

With the creatures multiplying, both in number and ferocity, Matt must saddle up beside his legendary father,
Javier Del Toro—hunter, scholar, and a true caballero: a gentleman of the horse—and trust his best friend El Cid, a talking Andalusian war stallion with more fighting savvy than a medieval knight and a heart as steadfast as the Rocky Mountains, to save the people he loves.

Together, it’s some serious horse power.

Those skinners don’t stand a chance.
