My Teaser

The hair on Markie’s neck stood on end as Kato howled. For a horrifying moment, an icy breeze seemed to blow over her. They were not alone.

And a scene from Kato’s point of view

The world was full of a plethora of smells: flowers, grass, trees, people, insects, animals…oh, the joy of filling his nostrils with the teeming life of the world.

My Review

I’ll admit, the cover made me pick up this book. The shades of blue, the tropical palms and sea, and the wolf peering out at me. I had to check it out further.

Then the blurb sealed the deal and I brought it home.

An island paradise, greed, ambition, and an ancient curse. It all leads you on a terrifying journey into the supernatural.

Veterinarian Markie Cross moved to the island to save animals. Her closest companion is her wolf hybrid, Kato. They have this magical connection, can almost tell what each other is thinking. This connection plays an important role when islanders start dying in ways that can’t be explained.

Dr. Quinn calls in the CDC when he suspects a contagion may be loose on the island. He brushes elbows with Markie when he’s called to the scene of a mysterious death. Soon, they are forced to accept that something not human is behind the deaths. Along with Kato, they must face the evil or no one will survive it’s wrath.

I loved this book. So much was happening and the author sucked me right in.

Markie is such a wonderful character. She’s smart, successful, and adores Kato.

Kato is my hero. A wolf hybrid with mystical intelligence. His compassion for the animals brought into Markie’s veterinarian clinic is so heart warming. The author’s choice to have Kato share his thoughts, to see what he sees, is such a great idea.

I really liked Declan too. He’s the islands doctor and medical examiner. It doesn’t take him long to connect with Kato. That made me happy, as the way to Markie’s heart is through her wolf.

Lots of mystery, along with some character’s you don’t mind dying, a couple you do, and a supernatural element, make this one you’ll want to read straight through.

I’ve read this book several times and it still gives me thrills and chills

5 Stars

Synopsis

An island of beauty becomes A GATEWAY TO TERROR…

Few could argue that the exclusive island of San Martin is anything less than paradise. In this wealthy enclave, veterinarian Markie Cross has a thriving practice, but her almost psychic connection to animals has made human relationships — especially with men — harder to navigate. Until mystery, murder and something unfathomable shatter her world…

People are dying strange, unexplained deaths. Island medical examiner Declan Quinn is stunned at the unearthly condition of the bodies, and he and Markie share a dark suspicion that something terrifying and impossible is at work here. Something that may not be human.

As a sinister message becomes clearer, Markie and Dec race to understand the tragic history of this island paradise and unlock the true nature of the evil now descending. Because if they can’t, Markie may become the next victim….

    I love the sound of this one – and like you, I think the cover is scrumptious! Many thanks for sharing:). Mine is an amazing fantasy read – https://sjhigbee.wordpress.com/2016/11/01/teaser-tuesday-1st-november-2016/

  5. I just added this to my wishlist. I love the cover and I have to admit, it sounds much more intriguing than I might have given it credit for upon first glance. Your blog sure isn’t helping out my TBR pile any….but it is making me happy to find lots of new books – even trade off i guess :)

  6. The cover would get me to pick up the book too. Sounds my kind of read.

    • fuonlyknew says:

      Brooding suspense oozes off the cover. I’ve read this enough times that the cover is all soft and worn now:)

  7. Kathy Martin says:

    Sounds great! I used to read Lee all the time when she wrote romances. I’ll have to try some of her thrillers. My teaser comes from Living Spectres by Chelsea Quinn Yarbro – an historical mystery. Happy reading!
