Talk about an epic cover! Happily, the writing in Matt Harrill’s Hellbeast follows suit. Matt sent us an excerpt of the book – the part during which the cover actually happens – and it delivers the action and excitement promised by the cover design. And did we mention it’s epic? We’re talking demons, a sword called the Well of Souls, a six-pointed star, and the name Exerrocks. What more temptation do you need to buy this book? If that doesn’t do it for you, have a read of the blurbs below.
The fate of the world is balanced on a knife-edge. Despite everything Madden and Eva have been through to prevent it, the ARC Council is in disarray, demons roam the Earth. The Apocalypse is closer than ever. The solution couldn’t be further from her grasp.
Enter the final chapter of The ARC Chronicles, where Eva throws off the yolk of personal tragedy and follows her destiny to the one place she doesn’t want to go, the one place she cannot hope to avoid.
Hellbeast: Heroes don’t always walk in the light.
Her baby is gone, the only means of following her destroyed. Eva is left on Earth with Madden and her friends, and a gaping hole in her heart.
There is no time to take stock. The ARC Council is shattered, several members dead or disappeared. Decisions need to be made. This is far from the end. As demons start to find their way onto earth in ever increasing numbers, Eva is given an ultimatum: sacrifice herself, or sacrifice her daughter Nina.
With Madden, Gila, Swanson and numerous allies, Eva must find a way to reach her daughter before it is too late…
