Colonel Mark Kenslir is the last of the Cold War supersoldiers- and he's just come back from the dead. The only problem is, he can't remember who, or what, killed him or how he came to possess inhuman strength and the ability to heal any wound.
With the help of two teens who find him lost in the Arizona desert, the Colonel slowly begins to piece together his past, leading him to a final showdown with his murderer: a heart-eating, prehistoric shapeshifter leaving a trail of death and destruction across the Southwest.
Without weapons or his stone soldiers, can Kenslir stop the monster's murderous rampage, or will it kill him once more?
Brothers in Stone (Stone Soldiers #2)
Colonel Mark Kenslir, a cold warrior cursed to live forever, is rebuilding his team of Stone Soldiers after their defeat at the six-fingered hands of a prehistoric shapeshifter. But before he can recruit new soldiers to become men of living stone, reports come in of a new shapeshifter tearing out and consuming the hearts of victims in the American Southwest.
Kenslir enlists the help of one brave teenage girl and an FBI postcognitive empath to track down the new killer- only to discover there are now two prehistoric shapeshifters loose in the modern world. Falling back to their headquarters to regroup and replenish their numbers, Kenslir's military Detachment soon find themselves under assault from the ravenous shapeshifters- who are intent on pillaging the military's greatest supernatural treasures.
It becomes a race against time to stop the double threat of the shapeshifters inside the Stone Soldier's base, before they escape with world-changing power.
Blood and Stone (Stone Soldiers #3)
Imprisoned at Alcatraz for over forty years, Dr. Laura Olson dreamed of two things: freedom and meeting back up with the man who spared her life and gave her a chance to serve her country from behind bars. All that changes when a shapeshifter comes to the Rock, ripping out and eating the hearts of the inmates to steal their memories and paranormal abilities. The shapeshifter sweeps through the prison and finally attacks Dr. Olson, stealing her heart and her undead powers before fleeing the country.
When the shapeshifter declares himself to be the second coming of the Mayan blood god Kukulcan to the people of the Yucatan, America's anti-supernatural forces spring into action, recruiting Dr. Olson and giving her a chance for payback.
The vampire now must work with a team of living stone soldiers, a teenager who can freeze objects with her mind and the super soldier who captured her long ago. Can the undead Doctor keep her new team alive long enough to get revenge, or will she succumb to her blood thirst and join with the new Kukulcan?
