THE BIG EASY
Primal Creatures (Southern Horror on a Haunted Louisiana Island near New Orleans): Psychic New Orleans Paranormal Mystery (French Quarter Mystery Book 3) Kindle Edition
P.I. Wyatt Thomas is more than a French Quarter sleuth. Much more. Whenever a new client needs someone to investigate ghosts, psychic possession, or the paranormal and supernatural backside of New Orleans, Wyatt Thomas is the one to call.
Forty miles south of New Orleans, Goose Island may as well be in another world. Five feet out of shallow waters of south Louisiana’s wetlands, the secluded island is home of the Tracists Monastery. It’s also a resort frequented by actors, screenwriters, and powerful producers in the burgeoning Louisiana film industry.
When a heinous death occurs on the island, a movie producer hires Wyatt, the French Quarter’s favorite paranormal detective, private investigator, P.I. and sleuth, to find out whom or what killed the victim. Was it wild dogs, or a rougarou (Cajun werewolf) as the local voodoo woman prophesies? Wyatt is an alpha male with a dangerous reputation who is witty, humorous and deadly sexy. Once on Goose Island, he experiences primal urges that run the gamut of desire, carnal instincts, passion, darkest fears, and horrifying truths.
Can he withstand the alluring romantic advances of a beautiful aging actress staying at the resort? Will he survive death by the rougarou, or the deadly hurricane taking direct aim at the monastery? Will his cat Kisses survive all three? Primal Creatures is a humorous horror story, psychic thriller, ghost mystery and romantic bayou suspense novel.
The book is a must read page turner. As one reader said, "If you love New Orleans and Louisiana, this writer will take you there."
Born on a Louisiana bayou, Halloween night, beneath a full moon, Eric Wilder grew up escaping snakes and alligators, and listening to his grandmothers' tales of ghosts, voodoo, and political corruption. Author of nine novels, four cookbooks and many short stories, he now lives in Oklahoma, about a mile from historic Route 66, with his three dogs, one coyote, and cat, but not a single alligator.

I don't think I have read a book in the horror genre before but I have to say, I am very glad that Primal Creatures was my first one. It sure sets the bar high!
As you can read in the blurb above, something is killing the residents on Goose Island! I was intrigued because I had never heard of rougarous before! I mean the whole werewolf thing is old as time pretty much but the angle that the rougarou is from the state of Louisiana...I thought that was pretty cool. Primal Creatures has plenty of mystery to it as Wyatt Thomas delves deeper and deeper into the monks' history and background!
Ooooh, the monks!! I SO had them pegged! From almost the beginning of the secretive behavior of brother Domenic, I just knew he HAD to have SOMETHING to do with Rance Parker's death! Now normally I would be turned off of the book if I knew what was going to happen, or at least be a little forlorn, but not this time folks! I wanted to know HOW they were involved. I was thinking that because the monks had to sell some rights to their property, they eventually wanted to rethink on the deal after seeing the goings on of the the ritzy promiscuous indulgences there. I thought they came from a long line of rougarous and to scare people off their land they were tearing some of them apart!
Am I right in these assumptions? I can't tell you...you must read it for yourself!
I felt the characters in Primal Creatures were believable and reacted like you or I would if someone told us there was a werewolf running around the place.
The book was definitely a page turner and I ate it up from the beginning!
My favorite character was Professor Quinn! I loved his relationship with Sierra and imagine him as this sometimes flighty, old guy who's super smart, acts brusque but is really very lovable and very into birds, LOL.
The nail biting suspense continues throughout Primal Creatures all the way up to the climax of the book that will probably leave you with paper cuts, you'll be turning the page so fast!
