Struck by strange attacks, Gévaudan, one of the most remote and wildest provinces of the Kingdom of France, calls on a local garrison to hunt down the wolves who have been slaughtering shepherds and shepherdesses since the beginning of summer.
Lucien Manetteau, a young man from Dauphiné, is called in to ensure the good behavior of the soldiers housed by the population.
But as the weeks go by and hunts and beats follow one another in vain, the mutilated corpses of certain victims raise questions about the nature of what the gazettes are already calling the Beast of Gévaudan.
With the help of a nobleman and children from the region, Lucien will embark on an uncertain and dangerous quest, which will take him much further than he had imagined.
