Horrible things move through the shadows of our worldbloodsuckers, Full Bloods and mongrel beasts, shapeshifters and minor freaks. For centuries creature hunters known as Skinners have protected humankind. But who protects the Skinners . . . from madness?
Unbeknownst to the human population, a pestilence is raging through an unseen community of low-level monstrosities. What seems, at first glance, a boon for the mortal cause has horrific connotationsas the Skinner team of Cole Warnecki and Paige Strobel races across the Midwest to uncover the shocking secret of the Mud Flu. For a nightmare of destruction and blood sacrifice is loomingone born of an unholy meeting nearly two centuries agothat will pit man against beast, and Skinner against Skinner.
Marcus Pelegrimas graduated from the University of Nebraska with a degree in Criminal Justice as research to become a maniacal super villain. When too many of his plans were thwarted, he went back to his first love: writing. He is also an active member of the Nevermore Paranormal ghost-hunting group. That one worked out much better than the world domination thing.
“Twilight fans hungering for more vampire/werewolf drama can look forward to Skinners.”
