Book Description

Everyone who lived in Saint Anthony Parish, Louisiana grew up hearing stories of the old Hindel Mansion . The one cast in shadow and sitting alone. Of late-night howling on nights of the full moon.
Parents listened and nodded as though in complete agreement with the strange happenings. Later they would laugh and shake their heads over the wild imaginings of today’s youth.
Then a family named Rawlins moved into the mansion and within days the laughter turned to a cold and paralyzing fear.
Now another child has disappeared from the mansion and Detectives Hays and Olivier’ know they need to move fast before they have another bloodbath on their hands.
Will they be in time to save this child?

5.0 out of 5 stars Rougaru July 31, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Rougaru is a fresh take on the modern werewolf and a long time in coming. Being a long time buff of the many veins of the horror genre, I was genuinely pleased and suprised to come upon an artfully woven tale of paranormal phenomena, werewolf legend, murder mysteryy and romance. This book will captivate the casual reader as well as the metaphysically advanced.McDowell and her characters are well on there way to a following for years to come.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome!! April 10, 2011
By Kellie
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
What can I say about this book.....It is totally awesome. I am not a writer so please bare with me. This kept me so intrigued. The book pulled me in til the very end. The characters were great and the theme of the book was good.

It is not for the faint of heart but if you like a little werewolf with some romance too, this is the book for you.

This was very well written and kept me on edge that I never wanted to stop reading and put it down but had to force myself because I either had to go to sleep or work. It was just that good.

The characters felt real and you felt like you were part of the story. Like you were there with them experiencing the same things they were. It was riveting, emotional and sensational. I can't wait to start Rougarou II.

The only thing I have left to say is: Buy it!!!

A horror book that delivers the goods. The monster is evil and scary, as it should be. Great setting and strong characters make this a satisfying novel. If you like scary horror novels then this is a good choice for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars ROUGAROU July 30, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
First of all, Kindle for PC is very fast & easy to download & install. I ordered my copy & in 30 seconds the book arrived on my PC. First suggestion, start reading it early because once I started I had to finish it & it is not a short book! There really is something of everything in there - local history, ghosts, wherewolves, romance. In places it is sad, parts which made me laugh out loud & it just picks up pace & gets better & better. I will certainly be reading it again, I read it so quickly because I wanted to see how the story finished that next time round I'm sure I'll enjoy it even more.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Paranormal Suspense Thriller October 29, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Rougarou is the story about a man/werewolf by the name of Jonathan Hindle who lost the love of his life, tragically, centuries ago. He eventually meets and seduces a young voodoo priestess into helping him to bring forth his beloved Angelia's spirit, so that she can remain a part of his life. Unfortunately, the lengths he has gone to in order to achieve such a thing brings on tragic consequences for everyone involved.

This book was such an unexpected and pleasant surprise for me! I was expecting a paranormal romance and while it is a paranormal story, it was really not a romance. There was definitely love and emotion felt between characters in the book but the main storyline was not romantically based. It was, however, a wonderful mystery suspense thriller.

Judith McDowell is a fantastic storyteller! She did a really good job with fleshing out her characters. I really enjoyed the interaction between the two heroes of the story, Donovan and Jack. When you're reading about those two you feel like you're hanging with the guys..with their constant bantering back and forth. She even, surprisingly, has a way of making the reader somewhat sympathize with the villain, by showing his once softer side in flashbacks. It didn't seem to matter what the scene was... when you're reading about the couple suffering from the loss of their child..you want to wrap your arms around them and give them comfort. When she's describing a character walking through the dark mansion..she makes YOU want to drop the book and run in the other direction for fear of what may jump out at you! It TRULY read like a movie, she has a way with her descriptions that allows you to visualize everything so clearly. I can honestly say that I've never read a book that has made me feel that way before.

4.0 out of 5 stars mysterious and engaging! i wolfed it down! April 11, 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
this was definitely written by a woman, which is fine. i love women as writers! the female perspective on stories such as the werewolf legend tends to be refreshing and tasty. werewolves are not my favorite subject in literature or movies. but this author kept my attention with an easy-flowing style and an engaging storyline that kept my interest throughout. i believe this is mcdowell's first book (although i may be wrong). and for a first effort, she kept a good pace, a deft balance between action and story, and the characterization (not complex...didn't need to be) made it easy to like the good guys and hate the villains. there was not as much blood as i expected, but carnage is not requisite in a horror story....suspense is! and mcdowell, even in this early work, is adept at building a spooky atmosphere and keeping the suspense and tension at the perfect level to keep this story percolating at full steam until the end.
i'll admit the ending surprised me.....fresh, inventive and definitely left the door open for the possibility of a sequel. and i was left with a strong feeling that I ENJOYED THIS BOOK! this was a very enjoyable read. it was mysterious, engaging and suspenseful. a great early work from a promising author. characterization could've been a bit stronger, but this is a read that overall will not let you down! mcdowell is a literary force to be reckoned with.......and i have a feeling that (like our friend the wily werewolf) unless you have some silver bullets, we won't be able to keep her down! she will haunt us again....maybe in our dreams or nightmares....maybe on a full moon....
but she will be back to haunt us again!
a very satisfying read! i give it 4.3 stars (and a full moon)

Found this book to be more about sex than horror. Disappointed with the story line from start to finish. Fifty Shades of voodoo werewolves. Wasn't impressed.
