Summary

Fifty years after Professor Challenger’s discovery of the Lost World, America’s last dinosaur circus has gone bankrupt, leaving a dozen avisaurs, centrosaurs, ankylosaurs, and one large raptor abandoned. Now a daring expedition plans to do the impossible: return the Jurassic giants to the wild. Two filmmakers, a circus trainer, a journalist, and a young Peter Belzoni must find a way to take the dinosaurs across oceans, continents, rivers, jungles, up a mountain that has been isolated for seventy thousand years . . . Then, if they make it, all they will do is face the prehistoric wonders, dangers, and terrors of the Lost World.

    This bundle includes the first three books of the Mortis Vampire Series.  
     
    Death Beckons - Working late one night, Natalie Pierce is kidnapped by a creature that looks like a harmless old man, but is something far more terrifying. Waking up in a creepy mausoleum, she is forced to endure three nights of indescribable agony. Her life is forever altered when she is transformed into a monster of myth and legend; a vampire.  
     
    Lonely and full of despair, she comes face to face with the irresistible and enigmatic Lord Lucentio. Justice bringer for the European Vampire Council, Luc has been sent to Australia to kill Natalie's maker, but someone has already beaten him to it. He quickly discovers that Nat is far from an ordinary fledgling. He suspects that she is Mortis, a figure of both hope and dread among their kind.  
     
    Natalie is propelled into a dark and mysterious underworld that takes her far away from her hometown of Brisbane. Her arrival was foretold long ago and her fate is already sealed. Nat's entire species is in danger and it is her job to save them. She desperately wants to escape from the burden that has been thrust upon her, but she is inextricably linked to a two thousand year old prophecy. An unknown enemy has begun to whittle down their already limited numbers. If Nat fails to accept her destiny, all vampires will soon cease to exist.  
     
    Death Embraces - Natalie Pierce awakens to find herself buried in a box that strongly resembles a coffin. After some initial confusion she remembers that she has become a member of a very exclusive club; the living dead.  
     
    Natalie has three important tasks ahead of her. One: escape from her underground prison. Two: hunt down the creature responsible for imprisoning her. Three: discover who or what is behind the cause of the sentient shadows that only she can see.  
     
    As the long awaited and highly unanticipated Mortis, Nat has abilities that no other vampire has ever before possessed. She must utilize the strangeness that sets her apart from her new kin to fulfill a prophecy that was written over two thousand years ago. The ancient text predicts that it is her destiny to wipe out the vast bulk of her own kind. Despite all of the weird and wacky powers that she has gained, not even Mortis can avoid her fate.  
     
    Death Deceives - From the moment she’d been turned into Mortis, Natalie Pierce had been fated to come face to face with the first vampire ever created. Hideously transformed over thousands of years by the diseased blood that runs through his veins, the First had created an army of grey skinned imps. His plan is to enslave humanity and to turn them into a vast herd of cattle to feed his offspring.  
     
    Nat and her friends are all that stands between the humans and the bat faced, orange eyed imps. Aside from the overwhelming odds against them, Natalie foresaw an even bigger danger. As vampires, they were all highly susceptible to becoming possessed by their shadows. Once that happened, they could then be turned into imps by the First. Luc, Geordie, Igor and Gregor would be doomed from the instant they set foot inside the First’s lair.  
     
    A recent prophecy had foretold that an army would come to Natalie’s aid. With many of her new kin already possessed by their shadows, Nat was uncertain where this mystery army would come from. She could only hope that the prophecy would come true. If it didn't, she would be facing the First and his growing army of ravenous offspring alone.

    HELL ISN'T THE RIGHT PLACE FOR HER . . .  
    Then again, it isn’t the right place for anyone who has done nothing wrong. Ellicia can only endure the dying shrills and never-ending torture for so long. She has lost track of time; it’s become a foreign concept. How long has it been? A few months? A few years? It sure feels to her like it’s been years. Several years! 
    SHE JUST WANTS OUT OF THAT HELLHOLE.  
    Nathan, Sean, and Kate worked hard in doing just that—getting her out. The only problem now is that while Ellicia may have, in reality, been dead for a few months, she thinks that it’s been at least three years . . . Three years being surrounded by nothing but fire and pain can really take its toll on anyone.

    What readers are saying about the Redneck Apocalypse series: 
    "If these two boys are God’s chosen warriors, then it might just be time for humanity to bow out of the fight."  
    —James Hunter, author of Strange Magic  
    "When I think back on the book, I think first of the vulnerability and grief of the main characters, each damaged in their own way, for their own reasons. I think of the violent desperation the whole thing reeks of, this balance of fragility and darkness that keeps bubbling up between the lines."  
    ~Tim McBain, co-author of the Awake in the Dark series  
    "I have rarely had the pleasure of reading anything this weird and wonderful. If Douglas Adams were to write horror I think this is close to what would happen." ~Nancy Parker  
    "I love Tough. He is this incredibly flawed anti-hero who is constantly struggling with... well, everything. His hometown of Halo has been his own personal Hell for years and it seems that he will never take a trick. But as flawed as he is, he is above all a fighter. He wants to survive, he doesn't want to give up (even when he thinks he does)." ~Mikhaeyla K, Booklikes  
    "This book was super hard to put down. I’m pretty sure my kids had to pry it from my hands in order for me to make dinner. [...] It's a crazy page turning thrill ride." ~The Reading Chameleon  
    "Tough might be my favorite character ever. I loved everything about him." ~Charlotte Cyprus, author of Kiss of the Fey  
    "Hudson nails down the frenetic 20-something vibe, and the setting is undeniably rural and southern [...] Pain, violence and anguish are as deftly delineated as new love, foolish hope and stupid stubbornness." ~Michael McClung, author of the Amra Thetys series

    I used to think I was a pretty normal teenager, but nothing has been normal about the past week. Superpowers, voices in our heads, a six-thousand-year-old man, a secret NATO organization invading our school and trying to kill us. If only that were the end of the list. 
    I've lost track of Karen in the chaos, and now I'm on the run. Something dark is following me, something that can raise the dead and control the dying. I have one ally in all this—Shannon. But while we're both Sleepers, we may not be on the same side.

    A poltergeist haunts Taro, dogging his international travels. It washes glasses, puts dishes away, and even dusts. At least he hopes it's a cleaning-obsessed poltergeist and not his own anxieties burbling over into neat freak fits he doesn't remember. When his property manager suggests he call paranormal expert, Jack Montrose, Taro's skeptical but desperate enough to try even a ghost hunter. 
     
    Jack's arrival crushes Taro's hopes of a dashing Van Helsing-style hero. Instead of an invincible hunter, he gets Ichabod Crane. As the paranormal puzzles multiply and Jack begins to suggest the entity might not be a ghostly one, Taro adds a budding friendship with Jack to his pile of anxieties. It's a race to see whether Taro's poltergeist or his relationship with the obviously-not-ace Jack will reach maximum strangeness first.
