They have been living among us for millenia, hiding in the shadows. Some believe in them, some do not, but when the mythical become a threat, the U.S. military sends in their own supersoldiers to defend against the supernatural...

Teens Josie Winters and Jimmy Kane are drawn into a world of monsters and magic they never knew existed when they find a soldier lost in the Arizona desert.

Kenslir is the last of the Cold War super soldiers- and he's just come back from the dead. With no memory of who, or what killed him, he sets out to piece together his past with the help of two teens that find him wandering the Arizona desert. After returning to a modern world he doesn't remember, Kenslir starts to remember his final mission: stop a prehistoric shapeshifter that steals the lifeforce, form and memories of its victims- by tearing out and eating their hearts.
Author Information: 

C.E. Martin resides in the midwest with his wife and two daughters.
After serving four years in the USAF, C.E. returned to the midwest in 1994. Toiling by day as a civil servant, C.E. enjoys classic pulp novels and B Movies in his spare time. When not writing, C.E. can be found lurking around the internet or on Xbox Live- when his kids let him have the TV.



So I was a little concerned that this story could turn into some sort of GI Joe wanna’ be with a sappy side story, but it so didn’t.  The story was exciting, yet down-to-earth.  I could totally see this happening, which is key in a good fantasy story.

I was hooked from page one and couldn’t put it down.  I cannot wait to read the next books in the series.  I already added them to my wish list on Amazon and on Goodreads, and I don’t do that very often.  I also told my kids about it and told them they had to read it…and then bugged them to see if they had read it yet…another rarity.  I have found a new “one of my faves” author.

I give this story 5 out of 5 clouds.
