"I think women are often over looked when it comes to the genre of horror. Don't be fooled by long lashes and soft curves. That's how we got you to eat the damned apple in the first place." Rachel MacNeill Rawlings

Rachel MacNeill Rawlings is my Woman In Horror today. And why not? This lady has superb talent and writes kick-ass horror! Her Maurin Kincaide series has vampires, witches, weres, and other delightful nasty buggers. Her stories relate well to men readers as well as women because there is plenty of action. Action plus a lot of bite! Oh, yeah!

A very interesting thing about Rachel, to me at least, is the fact that her books are published by Hound Comics. How cool is that? A comic based company that publishes books as well. Usually, things take the opposite spin. I am very intrigued with this. I have always felt that horror and comics go hand in hand. Short story horror would be particularly well adapted to this media form. Maybe, if we're lucky, Rachel can convince them to publish comics for her as well. Just saying. Brian Keene and others have done it.

Witch Hunt, which came out in October, is the sequel to The Morrigna. There is even more action in this one ( imagine that ! ) and a rather strange alliance for the common good. 

More good news is that book three in the Maurin Kincaide Series, Blood Bath, will be gracing our selection list of must reads. Hey, if book one and two are great, would we expect anything less from book three? Of course not.

So, my friends, I heartily suggest you find another favorite author in Rachel MacNeill Rawlings. She will knock your socks off!

Maurin Kincaide is back in this action packed follow up novel to The Morrigna. No longer a member of Salem's Preternatural Task Force Maurin is the new liaison for The Council, governing body of Others. During what should have been a routine meeting with her former Captain, Maurin is brought in on a murder investigation. Three dead witches, three cryptic clues, no sign of the killers and the Salem coven is losing allies within the Council. If Maurin and her unlikely partner Captain Matthison can't stop the killers, the Witch City might be without its namesake.
