Bloodline Gypsy: Jook and Gypsies Vol. 1 by Shirley A. Martin, published June 29, 2013 by Authorhouse.
A supernatural thriller of chilling carnage and primal beauty, Bloodling Gypsy unearths the origin of a mythical creature that has plagued history since the dark ages. Tracing an inherent line of magic back to Eygpt in 981 AD, this dark fantasy reveals the mysterious link between gypsies and werewolves. A yoke that, twelve hundred years later, reveals itself in the form of a birthmark stamped on children born of Louvari descent. When Susannah Henika loses her mother in a tragic accident, she moves to a mountain resort town to live with a father she has never known. She falls victim to night terrors and an impending sense of dread. She meets a woman in the woods, Madalina Sadrinovic, whose uncanny ways set Susannah ill at ease. Strange and foreboding events follow the arrival of Madalins’s twin brother Luca, and a local boy goes missing. The American teenager befins to suspect that, somehow linked to the strange markings on her hand. She may be one of the last remaining humans, genetically predestined to bare the offspring of an altered species, a distant ancestor forged into the world.
