Blood Line by Rie McGaha

blood-lineTruck driver, Joshua Kaine and his wife, Jessie, enjoy the freedom of the open road until one night on a lonely country road Josh is attacked by a rabid dog. After killing the animal, Joshua becomes very ill, but quickly recovers. Weeks later, when the full moon rises and Josh begins howling, the trouble has just begun.

Drawn by an unknown force, Joshua finds himself in a remote mountain area at The Gathering where he meets Garan, a gray wolf who has walked the earth for thousands of years, and Joshua learns the rabid dog was actually a werewolf and his clan is now after Josh.

On the run, hunted by a clan of werewolves, and searching to undo his plight, Josh ventures into the swamps of Louisiana in search of an old, black woman who holds the key to his existence. Josh is pushed to the limits, and when the merciless werewolves kill his wife, the hunted becomes the hunter.

About Rie McGaha

Rie McGaha was born and raised in northern California along the shores of Humboldt County where her grandmother often took her to search for seashells and watch the humpback whales migration. Though her father was a bit of a gypsy and moved his family all over, Rie always enjoyed the trips back to Eureka, California where many of her 12 children and 23 grandchildren still live.

As a dreamer of dreams and being born with a a gypsy soul, Rie has lived all over the United States. Settling in SE Oklahoma with husband, Nathan, she enjoys a quiet life in the Kiamichi Wilderness where she takes in abused and neglected animals, nurses them back to health and tries to find them new homes. The ones that don’t find new homes remain with Rie and she currently has 18 dogs and 1 cat.

Between her husband, children, grandchildren and all of the animals, Rie tries to find a few moments to write. She is currently working on Ancient Blood, the sequel to Blood Line, and Caleb and Arion the second and third installments of the My Soul To Keep Trilogy. She also writes reviews for Romance Writers United.

  3. I’m always looking for new authors to read, sounds good!

  4. I have never read a book about werewolves but this one sounds too good to pass up. I will have to check this author out. Thanks for the book review!

  5. Someone with a gypsy soul writing on the subject of werewolves. My interest is definitely piqued. This sounds like something I would find fascinating to read. Thanks for the heads up! Indigo

    P.S. Incidently I’m Native American, the idea of werewolves is not that farfetched to us. We tend to call them skinwalkers or shapeshifters. (Hugs)Indy

  6. This sounds like an amazing book – I like that it doesn’t sound like the novel is built entirely on the werewolf premise, that there are some real motivations behind the characters.

    That made more sense in my head, but this still sounds amazing is my final answer!

  7. This sounds like such a fun read! Please count me in!
