Ancient Enemy
Ancient Enemy Series Book 1
by Mark Lukens
Genre: Horror

Ancient Enemy - it wants things . . . you have to give it what it wants.


Seven hundred years ago the Anasazi people built massive cities in what is now the southwestern United States . . . and then they vanished.

Stella, an archaeologist specializing in Anasazi culture, and David, a mysterious Navajo boy, are on the run from something terrifying. As they flee up into the snowy mountains of Colorado, they are carjacked by criminals escaping a botched bank robbery. Caught in a blizzard, they must take refuge in what they believe is an abandoned cabin. It's at this cabin where they will face horrors beyond their imagination.




Darkwind
Ancient Enemy Series Book 2

After a rancher finds ten mutilated bodies at a dig site on the Navajo Reservation, both Captain Begay of the Navajo Tribal Police and Special Agent Palmer of the FBI become involved ... but the case leads Palmer back up to Colorado where five more mutilated bodies and Stella's vehicle have been discovered at a burning cabin.


Cole, Stella, and David escape the cabin on a snowmobile, heading south to get David back down to the Navajo lands. Now that Stella believes that David is a natural-born shaman, she knows that their only hope of David ever defeating the Ancient Enemy is to find a reclusive shaman named Joe Blackhorn who can help train David.

But with Agent Palmer and Captain Begay hot on their trail, Cole and Stella must find Joe Blackhorn and the secrets he possesses before the Ancient Enemy destroys them all.





Hope's End
Ancient Enemy Series Book 3

In 1891, in the badlands of northern Arizona, Jed Cartwright, a bounty hunter and U.S. Marshal, transports a dangerous prisoner back to the town of Smith Junction. As they travel through the woods, they are attacked by what they believe are skinwalkers.


As Jed flees the woods, he finds a house where a family has been slaughtered - the only survivor is an eight-year-old Navajo boy, a boy traumatized by the horrors he has seen.

As Jed and the Navajo boy make their way north to Smith Junction, a sudden sandstorm diverts them to the small town of Hope's End. They take refuge from the storm in the saloon with some of the townspeople. But hours later, when the storm is over, they discover what has happened to the rest of the people in Hope's End . . . and the terror is only beginning, everything leading up to a shocking twist at the end.



Evil Spirits
Ancient Enemy Series Book 4

It has been seven years since David sent the Ancient Enemy back to its world in the ghost town that was once the town of Hope's End.


Cole and Stella have lived in Costa Rica for the last seven years. They wanted to believe that it was really over . . . but there were always doubts. And when Stella sees a horrifying vision in the jungle, she's certain that the Ancient Enemy has returned.

David, living at his aunt's house in New Mexico, knows the Ancient Enemy is back; he can feel it. And now nightmares about a serial killer possessed by the Ancient Enemy plague him, a killer who will stop at nothing, a killer who is coming for David. With Joe Blackhorn dead now, the only person David can turn to is Begay, the former captain of the Navajo Tribal Police.

Former FBI agent Palmer's nightmares have returned, and when he's called in as a consultant on the recent copycat murders - re-creations of the massacre at the archaeological dig site seven years ago - he knows that the ancient evil is back.

Together, they are drawn into one last stand against the Ancient Enemy . . . but this time the battle will be fought in the Ancient Enemy's world.

  39. The covers have a really cool vibe. I like that they don't come off too cheesy or anything like that. They're cool.

  40. I like the "muted" color pallet of the covers

    ReplyDelete
  41. The design theme is well executed. They feel mysterious, without being over the top.

    ReplyDelete
  42. I have no questions for the author.

    ReplyDelete
  43. I don't really put a lot of importance on book cover art. I'm more interested in the blurbs and reviews of the book to decide whether to read the book or not.

    ReplyDelete
  44. I like the cover for Evil Spirits the best. As an author myself, I believe a book cover is very important. It's the "first impression" of your work.

    ReplyDelete
  45. I really like the cover! It looks super cool! My question for the author is whether they designed the book cover themselves or had someone else do it, and how they went about doing that.

    ReplyDelete
  46. I cannot wait to read!

    ReplyDelete
  47. The covers look isolated and desolate and the description really makes me want to read these books!

  50. The covers are lonely and spooky—so cool.

    ReplyDelete
  51. I like the cover - reminds me of the "old west" (other areas as well) where people came and left leaving the towns to disappear (turn into a ghost town). So, Hope may not feel that there is much hope for this town - but, will have to tune in for a great read prior to knowing the truth. Thanks for sharing

    ReplyDelete
  52. The continuity of the the covers seems to indicate the continuity of the evil.

    ReplyDelete
  53. No questions, but just from the covers alone I really feel like these are books I would enjoy reading. After reading the descriptions, I know these are books I would really enjoy reading

  64. The first cover looks eerie. Each cover gives a sense of someplace different like out in the woods, the desert, and a wild west town. I like that it is easy to tell that all of these books are part of the same series.
