Praise for Skin of the Wolf

“Those familiar with Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight saga will appreciate the depiction of Noantri and shape-shifters, while fans of Katherine Neville, Steve Berry, and Raymond Khoury will enjoy the relic element. Verdict: Part paranormal/religious thriller, part Native American ethnography, this is an exciting and atmospheric excursion through ‘cataclysm-causing artifact’ literary territory. Although this is a sequel, Cabot (the pen name of coauthors Carlos Dews and S.J. Rozan) provides sufficient flashbacks for new readers to jump in without feeling lost.” Library Journal (starred review)

“What do you get when you mix an award-winning crime fiction author with a literature professor? Sam Cabot—a kick-butt writing duo!… Skin of the Wolf features non-stop action with our favorite characters from Book #1 mixed with more conspiracies, excellent historical research, and Native American shape-shifting myths. If you liked Blood of the Lamb, hang onto your hat!… Skin of the Wolf takes off at a lightning speed—and it never lets up. Talk about a roller coaster ride! I was glued to my seat for the entire thing…a huge thumbs up!” –Popcorn Reads  
 “Building on foundations of the supernatural, art, religion, and Native American lore, the authors have crafted a fascinating world in which the Unchanged (“normal” humans) live side by side with vampires and shapeshifters. While suspension of disbelief here is required to a level not usually associated with mysteries, that does not detract in the least from this suspenseful tale of a few people with special abilities who must keep their identities secret while attempting to stop the dangerous plot of the shapeshifter.

“The story moves quickly as the police close in on Michael Bonnard as the chief suspect. It is all he, Pietro, and George can do to keep one step ahead of the law since they cannot publicly reveal their powers. Told from multiple points of view, the reader experiences the motivations of all parties as the story develops until it reaches its tense and violent climax.” –Deadly Pleasures

“In Skin of the Wolf, Sam Cabot, the pseudonym for writers Carlos Dews and S.J. Rozan, combines two myths, one from the Old World and one from the New World, into a terrifying story of gruesome murder, greed, and a deep secret known only to a few members of the Catholic Church…. riveting. Any story that stretches the imagination just enough that the reader can think, ‘It could be true,’ is a book that succeeds. Skin of the Wolf allows the reader to suspend belief in the normal just enough to provide a great read.” –Suspense Magazine

“Like Blood of the Lamb, [Skin of the Wolf] is a well-crafted supernatural-religious thriller, in which a modern-day mystery reaches back into history. A winning series for fans of mystery-horror blends.” –Booklist

A fast-paced New York saga as revelations of the existence of a third species shake up the ‘natural order’.” MBR Bookwatch

Praise for Blood of the Lamb

“Wow. Blood of the Lamb is totally unlike any novel ever written about vampires or secret societies or Roman art mysteries or Vatican conspiracies. But Sam Cabot has combined all of these, in this refreshing potpourri that provides us surprising and wonderful insights into each—and at the same time, endless fun!” —Katherine Neville, New York Times bestselling author

“You never quite catch your breath as the secrets unfold one at a time, all the while building to a first class conclusion. History, secrets, conspiracies, adventure. What more could you want from a thriller?” —Steve Berry, New York Times bestselling author

“Just when you thought vampires were so last year, Sam Cabot’s Blood of the Lamb offers up a fresh, compelling history of the vampire. Like all great works in the genre, this one makes us think deeply about what it really means to be human. Hope there will be more in this vein!” —Leslie S. Klinger, editor of The New Annotated Dracula

“A heady blend of Christian mythology and ecclesiastical reality, Blood of the Lamb is an intricate puzzle of a novel—intensely researched, deeply spiritual, and profoundly sacrilegious. I loved it.” —F. Paul Wilson, New York Times bestselling author of the Repairman Jack series

“Audacious.” —Publishers Weekly

“Firmly located in Dan Brown territory, this religious-themed thriller combines historical mystery with modern-day intrigue…One thing is crystal clear: [Dews and Rozan have] produced a first-rate thriller.” –Booklist
