The book opens with Mowgli at a Russian pub, asking anyone if they had seen Bigby Wolf, offering free food and drink to anyone who would talk. Realising he may be talking to the wrong types, Mowgli moves his search to more wild terrain to ask the wolves. Unfortunately for him even though he is able to speak the wolf language he is not one of them so in order for him to get information, he must present a challenge for leader of the pack.
On the farm we see that Snow and Bigbys kids are growing up well and living a fun life with Aunt Rose Red.
Later at night Mowgli and the head wolf have a bloody battle, that eventually is won by Mowgli. After killing the pack leader the others talk about a great Wolf God, that stayed with them, but then left.over the berring strait.
At the end we see Mowgli chartering a boat to continue his quest for Bigby.
