(If you don’t recall, I wrote these out of order, starting with The Blood of Carterville, going back in time for Out of a Christmas Sky, and just now filling in the gap between them with Destroyer of Carterville).
Now that I know Carterville so much better, the town, the characters, and the conflicts, this book, the first book written and now third in the series, needed some refreshing.
If you’ve already read The Blood of Carterville you already know what happened. I made no changes to the plot, just updated the descriptions and added an extra chapter at the end that makes it mesh better with Destroyer of Carterville.
If you haven’t read it, I suggest starting with Out of a Christmas Sky and getting the full experience. Each of these books is stand-alone, but together they build a bigger story.
If you have read The Blood of Carterville and want check out the updated version, just contact me, let me know where you bought your copy, and I’ll be happy to send you an ebook copy of the second edition.
I hope you all enjoy your visit to Carterville. I sure have!
Here’s the full blurb:
Carterville, AZ. Population: 286. People with powers: 198
Just a sleepy former mining town turned tourist haven in the mountains of Northern Arizona until the “incident”—the meteorite that gave everyone in the town powers, but only while in or near Carterville.
Some people think that the blood of Carterville bestows powers, but when a tourist stabs police Chief Henry Carter’s best friend, everything changes.
Henry will do the unthinkable to save his friend. But when the crime gets complicated, can Henry find the culprit and save his town, much less survive?
From Robert J. McCarter, long-time Arizona resident and the author of Shuffled Off: A Ghost’s Memoir, comes a mystery and a town you will never forget.
This is the second edition of The Blood of Carterville released in October, 2023
