Nagual: Dawn of the Dogmen by Frank Holes, Jr.
The third book in the series is a masterful blend of
fantasy and folklore, delving into the pre-dawn history of the
mysterious creature and then rushing forward to the present day.
The supernatural beast is seen from two fronts.
The first encounter, part of a 1700s French

In this terrible prequel to the regional thriller, Year of the Dogman, Frank Holes, Jr. yet again spins a tale of suspense and horror as Sigma counts down its last few days of existence.

survive. It could live
through crashes and impacts of every sort.
It wasnít a werewolf, and couldnít be taken down by silver
bullets, nor by any bullets of any sort.
It had survived the ravages of fire and ice, of great storms and
time eternal. It had seen
the rise and fall of many native civilizations, and it had even aided
the destruction of cultures. Its
roots traced back to the blackest of supernatural magic.
It wasnít any sort of animal native to our world.
And it was a far cry from its once human origins.
