Based on the the upcoming werewolf novel by Benjamin Percy. Lycans have always lived among us. They were massacred in the Crusades, WW2, westward expansionism. A republic was set up for them around the same time as Israel. There is an uneasy acceptance in the US -- Lycans must be registered and must take a transformation-inhibiting drug called Lupex. Resistance movements have always existed, many of them peaceful, but at the novel's opener a terrorist act -- when a Lycan transforms mid-flight and slaughters everyone on board -- results in a swift, severe government response that sets the narrative in motion and sends the country spiraling out of control.
