First, some background: Eternal is the second book in a three-set of companions that also includes Tantalize (Candlewick, 2007) and Blessed (Candlewick, TBA). The novels are set in a multi-creature-verse that includes vampires, shapeshifters, angels, ghosts, etc. In Eternal, we find out that the vampire hierarchy is located in Chicago. In Blessed, which I'm writing now, we may go to the U.S. Wolf pack.
So here's the question: Where do you think that the U.S. Wolf pack should be located and why?
