New Release: Duncan McGeary - Led to the Slaughter: The Donner Party Werewolves

New Release:

Everyone loves a good werewolf story, and with the success of Best New Werewolf Tales and Gary Brandner's The Howling Trilogy, Books of the Dead Press are proud to announce our newest title:

Duncan McGeary's Led to the Slaughter: The Donner Party Werewolves.

Duncan is an awesome guy that has been writing books for a long time and this release is part of a four book deal. The book was edited by Lara Milton and the cover was designed by Andy Zeigert.

The book is available as an ebook on Smashwords and Amazon.

Here's the synopsis:

Trapped in the Sierra Nevada without food, The Donner Party are led to the slaughter. After being manipulated and coerced into a string of bad decisions, the travelers, frozen and abandoned, find themselves unable to go forward or back, and are preyed upon by werewolves in their midst––the very people they thought were friends.

A tale of resilience, horror, and betrayal, the survivors of the expedition are hunted. But the human spirit endures.

As the creatures grow hungry and desperate, a showdown is born between the people struggling to retain their humanity, and the creatures seeking a massacre.

Told from the diaries of young Virginia Reed and others in the party, the truth is finally revealed.

“If you like your history with a sprinkling of killer lycanthropes, have I got a book for you. Duncan McGeary’s new novel, Led to the Slaughter: The Donner Party Werewolves, offers an alternate explanation for the cannibalism in the Donner Party, and is a welcome addition to the ranks of alternative histories.” ~ Steve Perry, New York Times Bestselling Author of Men in Black, The Mask, and Star Wars: Shadows of the Empire
