Publisher Description

"The mystery and fantasy slowly draw together, bonded by supreme characterization, to make for a story which is almost impossible to put down."
--Reviewers Bookwatch

As a child, dog-loving Brenna Fallon naívely invokes an ancient Celtic deity to save her beloved hound--and inadvertently anchors the new-found power at a spring on her family's farm.

She doesn't know she's also left an opening for a far more malevolent force.

Years later, thanks to the actions of several angry young men, Brenna discovers the terrible potential of that gateway. With a devastating plague unfolding abruptly around her, she must depend on her wits, a stranger she doesn't trust, and a mysterious stray dog who becomes more than just a faithful companion as she struggles to drive back the threat of a modern Black Death.

Welded by a desperate sacrifice, woman, man, and dog face the feral darkness together.

"If you are looking for a book that has paranormal elements and some romance, is expertly written with wonderful characters and has a smooth pace that leads up to a climatic finish, A FERAL DARKNESS is the book for you and it is not to be missed."
--The Romance Reader's Connection

"This is a very smart, well-woven book, with an initially cranky but ultimately endearing hero and a thoroughly satisfying ending."
--Mary Jo Putney, bestselling author of the The Rake

Darned fine story

Good story, good character development. Only lacks a good Basque/English lexicon.

There's no mention of the rhythm or cadence that the Basque language has. The first time I ever heard Basque spoken, I was puzzled because the cadence didn't fit with the phonemes, IMNSHO.

The young man was straddling his racing cycle, speaking into a pay phone outside my post office.

Another woman came in, and it turned out she too was curious to know what the language was. We went outside, waiting at a polite distance until he finished the call.

I know a Basque man who runs a tapas restaurant for which he is the cook. Maybe I can get him to translate.

I think that even after Hair of the Dog, I'll want MORE! of this storyline.

Love the ending

A little slow starting, but give it time.
