This strange romance trilogy -- available now as a three-book bundle for the first time -- is guaranteed to give you chills in more ways than one! The Montenegro Cycle follows the friends and family of "Monty" Montenegro as they navigate the strange and occult-driven mysteries in which they find themselves trapped.
Vol. 1, "Chatters on the Tide," is the story of Monty's friends Harold and Bonnie. Harold has lost his job, divorce is on the horizon, a religious cult believes he's a prophet, and he's being stalked by an eerie motorcycle club and its mute, wild-haired mascot named Gator. Is Harold really a prophet with miraculous powers? Can his skeptical wife Bonnie free him from the strange world into which he has fallen?
Vol. 2, "Ghilan" follows Monty's son Ergie. A high-school slacker with too few friends, Ergie welcomes the friendship of the new kid at school. But Zack isn't what he seems, his own parents have a hidden past, and he's pretty sure he's falling in love with his best friend Sellie. Can Ergie sort out his relationship with Sellie and find out the truth about Zack? And if he does, will he have the courage to do what he knows is right?
Vol. 3, "The 14th Mansion" picks up four years after the terrifying events of "Ghilan." Ergie and Sellie are missing and the police have no leads. Ergie's parents turn to three unlikely trackers locked in a bizarre love triangle -- a homeless mute, a gruff repo man, and a psychic with a troubled past. Are Ergie and Sellie still alive? Will the trio find Ergie and Sellie or simply self destruct?
Here's what some reviewers said about the books in this series:
"A good read -- Love the end!"
"A terrific read...is it real or just fiction? Cannot wait for the next book to come out."
"It puts your belief between fact and fiction. You begin to second guess what you know as fact."
