“Blood and Rain is definitely a contender to be the best horror novel of the year.”- The Examiner

“While Blood and Rain is fast paced and full of werewolf action, the thing that makes the novel more than just a slaughter-fest is that Rolfe is able to craft characters that are both believable and whom the reader can relate with. It is easy to care for the plight of Fischer and his daughterContinue reading ““Blood and Rain is definitely a contender to be the best horror novel of the year.”- The Examiner”
