Orphan Jack Templar has  no memory of his parents and only the  smallest details from his Aunt  Sophie about how they died. The day  before Jack’s fourteenth birthday,  things start to change for him. At  first it’s great: A sudden new  strength helps him defend his  nose-picking friend “T-Rex” from the  school bully, and even his crush,  Cindy Adams, takes notice. But then a  mysterious girl named Eva arrives and tells him two facts that will  change his life forever. First, that he’s the descendent of a long line  of monster hunters and he’s  destined to be in the family business.  Second, that there’s a truce  between man and monster that children are  off-limits…until their  fourteenth birthday! Jack has only one day  before hundreds of monsters  will descend on his little town of Sunnyvale  and try to kill him.

As if that weren’t enough, things get even  more complicated when  Jack discovers that the Lord of the Creach (as  the monsters are  collectively known) holds a personal grudge against him  and will do  anything to see that Jack has a slow and painful death. To  stay alive  and save his friends, Jack will have to battle werewolves,  vampires,  harpies, trolls, zombies and more. But perhaps the most  dangerous thing he must face is the truth about his past. Why do the  other hunters  call him the last Templar? Why do they whisper that he may  be the  “One?” Why do the monsters want him dead so badly?  Even as  these  questions plague him, he quickly discovers survival is his new   full-time job and that in the world of monster hunters, nothing is   really what it seems.

What they’re saying about it:

“Gunhus brings young readers a monster-filled romp to read at their own risk.” Kirkus Reviews

“Move over Harry Potter and Percy Jackson, there’s a new kid in town – Jack Templar, and he will take you on a wonderful adventure of good vs  evil, with friends and enemies at every turn.” Penny Brien

NewRogueCover1The Rogue Gentleman by Brian Drake
Genre: Action / Adventure, Espionage, Thriller
Price: $0.99
Where to Get It:
Amazon (Kindle) 
*
*
Steve Dane, The Rogue Gentleman, an international adventurer who rights wrongs wherever he finds them, fails to prevent a young woman’s abduction. But that does not stop him from finding her. Officially hired by the girl’s father, Dane battles gunman and evades police as he discovers the decades-old vendetta behind the kidnapping; he soon learns that the grudge is just the beginning and peels back the layers of a more fiendish plan that goes beyond a desire for vengeance. Assisted by his lover, the luscious Nina Talikova, Steve Dane dives head first, the only way he knows how, into a conspiracy of terror the likes of which the world has never seen, orchestrated by a powerful and mysterious woman known only as “The Duchess”. When Dane finds The Duchess he will sacrifice anything, including his life, to destroy her.
*
What they’re saying about it:
*
“The Rogue Gentleman is Steve Dane, a former Marine, a former CIA agent, a former Mercenary commander who is now a freelance trouble shooter with his girlfriend Nina Talikova, a former KGB agent. The pair is fun to read. I was reminded of Michael Weston and Fiona Glenane from Burn Notice and Simon Templar and Patricia Holm from the Saint stories. Nina is quite blood thirsty and frequently complains that she doesn’t get enough action and teases Dane when he looks at other women. In fact she declares the young woman Steve is looking at has barely stopped growing just before she gets kidnapped [which] sends the pair on this adventure. Dane is equally intriguing with a clearly defined history as a Marine, a CIA agent, mercenary commander and now world traveling trouble shooter but there are still mysteries about just why he went freelance and just what connection he has to the President of the United States (who bares some resemblance to the first George Bush). As an opening novel this really sets up the series to come with hints at mysterious pasts for both Steve and Nina and some intriguing possibilities for future adventures. Brian Drake’s writing is really enjoyable with a couple of nice tips of the hat to Jerry Ahern. I really enjoyed this book and look forward to more adventures of The Rogue Gentleman.” [Amazon Review]

We Are Elephants by Kevin Hilliker
Type: Novella
Genre: Coming of Age, Adventure
Price: $2.99
Where to Get It:
Amazon (Kindle)
*
*
*
WE ARE ELEPHANTS is a road story about teenage  love, mutant dogs, an insane old hunter, feverish hallucinations, Middle America and the end of the world.
*
Everything is cold and barren. Fifteen-year-old Michael and his younger brother John are violently forced into the  desolate frontier of Middle America—at first simply trying to stay  alive. However, an act of goodwill deep within the Ohio wilderness sets  off a chain of events that propels the brothers from state to state,  trying to outrun a master-tracker who has become known only as The  Huntsman. As they run, Michael begins to question whether the old man is real, or a figment of his darkest nightmares. What he finds, will  change the boy forever.
*
WE ARE ELEPHANTS is a powerful debut  novel from Kevin Hilliker—a post-apocalyptic thriller like no other.  Atmospheric and expertly told, this story will stay with readers long  after they’ve finished the last, startling pages.
*

What they’re saying about it:

“We Are Elephants, by Kevin Hilliker, lives up to its intriguing title  and cover. Claiming a well-deserved place in the young adult literature  niche, We Are Elephants goes beyond the typical young adult fare of teen angst, young love, wizards, warlocks, and vampires.  Oh, the story has  plenty of excitement to offer its reader–a barren, post-apocalyptic  setting; a new-wilderness trek filled with adventure and fraught with  danger; an evil-incarnate villain; and yes, even romance. The tale  itself is an expertly-woven, attention-arresting journey. But the real  journey in We Are Elephants lies within the characters themselves. We  share in their honest soul-searching, tireless devotion, and tenacious  determination to forge new lives in an unexpectedly new and frightening  world.”–Amazon Reviewer
