Meet the Author Rachel Rawlings
 I was born and raised in the Baltimore Metropolitan area but my family is originally from Rhode Island. I spent summers in New England with my grandparents, which probably sparked my fascination with Salem, MA. I started writing fictional stories and poems in middle school. In fact I had notebooks and notebooks full of incomplete stories and poems. One of which I managed to hold on to and is safely stashed in a box under my bed. When I was in seventh grade I entered a poetry contest in the back of an Archie comic and won, after that I was hooked on writing after that. Amazingly it took almost two decades to find a voice for my snarky, ass kicking heroine Maurin Kincaide and complete my first length novel. Meeting the love of your life and raising three amazing children together must have caused a rift in time because I still can't believe it's gone by so quickly. I'm fortunate to have an loving and supportive family who don't mind sharing me with all the other people in my head.

Review by Red
*I was given a complimentary copy in exchange for an honest review.
Maurin Kincaide is just trying to do the right thing, but given the fine line between magical beings and everyone else that is not always easy.  Maurin doesn't have all the answers, but she's quick, strong, and willing to put herself in the middle of the fight in order to protect others.  
I love this book!  the story is down and dirty in so many ways and the characters are unique and well developed. 
This is not a sweet shimmery paranormal story.  Blood Bath  is dark and a little knowledge of vampire lore goes a long way.  In fact, part of what makes this such a good story is the way Rawlings mixes a modern world so seamlessly with legend.
If you have not read the other books in the Maurin Kincaide series you can still read this book and not be too far out of the loop, but I reccomend starting at the beginning.  You will not be disappointed!
Happy Reading!
