December 22, 2011: International bestselling authors Joseph Nassise and Jon F. Merz announced today the launch of a new series of novels that combine science fiction, horror, and action-adventure into the perfect blend for any genre fiction fan.
HELLstalkers tells the story of an elite group of soldiers brought together to fight an invasion of otherworldly creatures that have infiltrated our world as a result of an accident at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN in Geneva, Switzerland. Led by former US Army Ranger Memphis Stone, the HELLstalkers unit is comprised of an international cast of former special operations and intelligence operators who are devoted to tracking down and killing the wide array of monsters, aliens, and other creatures that come through portals into our world.
“The best part of this launch,” said Nassise, “is that we are doing it with Barnes & Noble, one of the premier forces in the changing face of publishing.” The first HELLstalkers novel, THE CERBERUS PROTOCOL, will be available exclusively on the Barnes & Noble.com website for Nook users for thirty days. After that time, the novel will also be available for other popular e-reading platforms, including the Kindle, the Kobo, and the iPad.
THE CERBERUS PROTOCOL will officially go on sale at BarnesandNoble.com on December 27th. According to Merz, the series will be “a non-stop roller coaster ride – like the X-Files on steroids.” Each new HELLstalkers book will feature exotic locations, bizarre villains, crazy characters, and tons of adrenaline-charged action.
Nassise and Merz are no strangers to writing action-packed material. Nassise’s Templar Chronicles is an international bestselling urban fantasy series in multiple languages with audio rights recently scooped up by Graphic Audio. Merz’s supernatural espionage Lawson Vampire series is a cult favorite and is headed to television in 2012. Both authors have also written a number of books in the Rogue Angel adventure series.
