Overview

From bestselling authors Joseph Nassise and Jon F. Merz comes a new series of short novels full of action, suspense, and all-out high octane excitement - HELLstalkers!

On December 5th, scientists at CERN in Geneva, Switzerland ran a short test on the newly completed Large Hadron Collider. For that brief period, protons swarmed back and forth along the seventeen miles of carefully constructed tunnel and slammed into each other with devastating force, generating power the likes of which had not been seen since the moment of the Big Bang.

Just a few short hours. That was all it took for our world to be invaded by hideous creatures from somewhere beyond.

My name is Captain Memphis Stone, commander of the HELLstalkers, the armed response unit hastily assembled to face this growing threat.

This is the story of the men and women under my command, those who stand in the gap and shed their blood to protect the rest of humanity from creatures that we never imagined we’d ever face, not even in our darkest dreams.



Welcome to the front lines.

The premise for the story is fairly decent: The things that go bump in the night? Yeah, they really exist and they are NOT nice. Pros for the story: * Firmly rooted in the realm of science ficton. The concept of the large hadron collider at CERN being the cause of an inter-dimentional rift opening is perfect to the story. Explained fairly well and with just enough physics to make credible. * Characters are believeable. Main character is detailed enough that it is possible to care about him and the trials he endures. Secondary characters have defined traits to add personality, if not same level of depth as main protagonist. * Monsters are wicked-cool. Imagination was in full flow when the designs on these bad boys (and girls) were let loose. * Potential for series longevity. Oh yeah, this one was meant to spark a full series of books and create the fan base to support each title. Cons: yep, there are quite a few * The arc of the story. Plot line was moving along nicely....and then you find there are only about 40 pages left in the book. Why is this a problem? Well, the hero is still trying to make a team out of his team, no real understanding of how to fight the enemy, team dynamics are spotty at best and there are about 6 plot lines to wrap up. Get the idea why this didn't get more stars on the rating? * Lack of cohesiveness to the hero's team. Good character design and variety of backgrounds but the comradery of the group is forced (and it's very evident at times). The stroyline calls for the group to be thrown together but thw authors try to push a feeling of alliance that just isn't there after only a couple of chapters. * Nook editing. Seriously, I haven't seen so many square blocks following an apostrophe since I converted a pdf file of contractions to Word. This was just bad. * Editing overall. Again, just not that good. * The ending. Rushed faster than a drummer on speed. Really took the whole experience down a couple of notches. Most of the story was captivating but rushed ending really hurts the experience. However, I would probably take the next book for a spin to see if the errors of this one were corrected.

This is a great action book. It is written by Joseph Nassise author of The Heretic and Jon Merz. I read it in one sitting and was left with a craving for the next one in the series. It is an action book with a touch of sci-fi/supernatural. The characters are very human and interact and complement each other very well. Highly recommended. Don't miss it!

Rubbish. Seems like it was written by a two year old. The editing was atrocious.
