The Next Wave of Stories in the Harbingers Series Arrives
Cycle 2 of the Harbingers series continues the story of four gifted strangers brought together to fight a growing darkness.
In Bill Myers's "The Revealing," the team finds themselves in Rome trying to retrieve the mystical spear Hitler once owned--the very spear that pierced Christ's side. This task will take them from hidden chambers inside the Vatican to a mysterious seaside cave with powers they could never expect.
Frank Peretti's "Infestation" unleashes a microscopic evil on the world that deceives, blinds, kills, then spreads. The Harbingers team must confront a monster bent on seducing and destroying mankind.
In "Infiltration" by Angela Hunt, the team is wounded and barely holding together. Forced to split up, they realize their investigations have led them into dangerous waters.
Alton Gansky's "The Fog" unleashes a supernatural mist unlike any other. There are vicious things in the fog that kill whatever they find. One team member realizes that the ultimate sacrifice may have to be made.

About the Author
Entertainment Weekly calls him a "Christian-publishing phenom," while TIME Magazine heralded him as "the king of the genre" and BookPage described him as "a bona fide publishing phenomenon." But for all of his commercial, cultural and critical success, Frank Peretti's own story is one of a humble man from humble beginnings given an extraordinary gift of storytelling.
Born in 1951 with a rare genetic disease, cystic hygroma, Frank's face was horribly disfigured. Even after multiple facial surgeries, Frank struggled with speech and his face bore many scars. Peretti remembers his early school years vividly. "I was pushed, shoved, thrown, hit, insulted, badgered, manhandled, teased, and harassed," says Peretti. "I was tired of kids asking, 'What’s wrong with your tongue?' before they would even ask my name."
Fortunately for young Peretti, he found love and acceptance from his parents, two brothers and church family. It was just the rest of the world that didn't know what to do with him. (Peretti discusses his own story as well as solutions for bullying in his only non-fiction work, No More Bullies, from W Publishing Group.)
Eventually, through time and prayer, Frank found his place – acting in drama, speaking at his church youth group, writing and telling spell-binding stories for others. "I was made to be a writer, and I was always a storyteller and a writer from the time I was a kid. I would draw comics up in my room, I wrote stories on my mom's power portable typewriter. I would tell stories to the neighborhood kids under the back porch. But it took a long time for me to really realize that's what I was supposed to do."
He started dating the love of his life and future wife, Barbara Jean, when he was only 19 and she was 16. Frank left his childhood home of Seattle to study English and film at UCLA, but eventually came back home to marry Barb and assist his father, who was a pastor in a small church.
In 1983, Frank turned from church work to pursue his love of story. By day he worked at a ski factory, by night he spun tales of evil and truth. He published his first book, a YA novel entitled The Door in the Dragon's Throat, with Crossway Books, a small religious publisher. Crossway was pleased with the book's acceptance and offered to publish Frank's previously submitted (and rejected) adult novel, This Present Darkness. Ignored by 13 other publishers This Present Darkness changed the face of Christian fiction forever and established Frank as the master storyteller of his time. Almost overnight, Peretti moved from complete obscurity to a bestseller with a broad and loyal fan base.
He followed up quickly with an equally successful sequel, Piercing the Darkness (1989). The two books together have sold more than 3.5 million copies to date. He also wrote the international bestsellers The Oath (1995), The Visitation (1999) and Monster (2005). He has won two ECPA Gold Medallion Awards for excellence in fiction for The Oath and Piercing the Darkness. Two of his books have been made into feature films and three others are optioned or in development.
Frank believes his writing will always be identified on the "dark side" saying, "it is given I will be pegged as a suspense writer. I guess I find those topics interesting. But if you don't have some kind of evil – well, at the least some kind of struggle – then you don't have a story to tell. You've got to have something to drive the story. You've got to have something to keep the pages turning."
Now Frank lives in a log cabin in the Pacific Northwest, writing full time and doing short speaking tours as his schedule allows. He spends his free time piloting a plane, riding his tractor, and playing banjo with his popular bluegrass band.
About the Author
Best-selling author. Award-winning filmmaker. To date, Bill Myers' books and videos have sold over 8 million copies. Not bad for a man who never wanted to be a writer.
He grew up in the mountains of Washington State, eight miles from the nearest town. Even with all that solitude, he read very little as a child and got Cs and Ds in the only writing class he took at the University of Washington.
"When a girl I'd dated all through high school dumped me our first year at college, I wandered the campus night after night, until I finally told God He could have my life, I'd do whatever he wanted regardless of how strange it was."
Even though for most of his life Bill wanted to be a dentist, he kept getting the impression God wanted him to be in filmmaking. "We had quite a few arguments, but because I made that promise, I changed my major to film directing and a few weeks later found myself in Rome, Italy studying a subject I knew nothing about in a language I couldn't speak. Talk about feeling foolish."
Bill fell into writing when he was directing a play in Los Angeles and a producer asked him to write a television show. "I discovered the power of writing through television and movie scripts, then books." Besides his studies in film directing in Rome, Bill holds a degree in Theater Arts from the University of Washington and an honorary doctorate from the Theological Institute of Nimes, France, where he taught.
As author/screenwriter/director his work has won over 60 national and international awards, including the C.S. Lewis Honor Award. His DVDs and books have sold 8 million copies. His children's DVD and book series, McGee and Me, has sold 4.5 million copies, has won 40 Gold and Platinum awards, and has been aired on ABC as well as in 80 countries. His My Life As... book series has sold 2.1 million copies. He has written, directed, and done voice work for Focus on the Family's Adventures in Odyssey radio series and is the voice of Jesus in Zondervan's NIV Audio Bible. As an author, several of his children's book series and adult novels have made the bestseller list.
He is also managing partner of Amaris Media, International – a motion picture and media company currently developing several projects for both children and adults. The motion picture, The Wager, starring Randy Travis and based on Myers' novel by the same name, was released in 2009.
Bill has been interviewed for Good Morning America, ABC Nightly News, The 700 Club, and TBN, as well as hundreds of broadcast, internet and print organizations.
About the Author
Christy-Award winner Angela Hunt writes for readers who expect the unexpected in novels. With over four million copies of her books sold worldwide, she is the best-selling author of more than 125 works ranging from picture books (The Tale of Three Trees) to non-fiction books, to novels.
Now that her two children have reached their twenties, Angie and her husband live in Florida with Very Big Dogs (a direct result of watching Turner and Hooch and Sandlot too many times). This affinity for mastiffs has not been without its rewards–one of their dogs was featured on Live with Regis and Kelly as the second-largest canine in America. Their dog received this dubious honor after an all-expenses-paid trip to Manhattan for the dog and the Hunts, complete with VIP air travel and a stretch limo in which they toured New York City. Afterward, the dog gave out pawtographs at the airport.
Angela admits to being fascinated by animals, medicine, psychology, unexplained phenomena, and "just about everything" except sports. Books, she says, have always shaped her life— in the fifth grade she learned how to flirt from reading Gone with the Wind. Her books have won the coveted Christy Award, several Angel Awards from Excellence in Media, and the Gold and Silver Medallions from Foreword Magazine's Book of the Year Award. In 2007, her novel The Note was featured as a Christmas movie on the Hallmark channel. Romantic Times Book Club presented her with a Lifetime Achievement Award in 2006.
Also in 2006, Angela completed her Master of Biblical Studies in Theology degree. She completed her doctorate in 2008 and was accepted into a Th.D. program in 2009. When she’s not home reading or writing, Angie often travels to teach writing workshops at schools and writers’ conferences. And to talk about her dogs, of course. She is also an avid photographer, using her photos to help find homes for her local SPCA’s shelter animals.
