My name is Captain Memphis Stone, commander of the HELLstalkers, the armed response unit hastily assembled to face this growing threat. This is the story of the men and women under my command, those who stand in the gap and shed their blood to protect the rest of humanity from creatures that we never imagined we'd ever face, not even in our darkest dreams.

Dec 20, Felipe rated it did not like it Shelves: I got it as part of the storybundle deal and the previous deal had some great sci-fi writing so I was hoping the thriller deal did too.
Feb 17, Randy rated it it was amazing. All he wanted was good food, good music, and possibly the company of a good woman. Every communication from inside was cut off and the last thing seen before the recording stopped was a flash of energy. Stone was to head the team going in to rescue the scientists trapped and get them ready for first aid help Captain Memphis Stone, an Army Ranger was on leave in Geneva after several months of war games in Russia.
Stone was to head the team going in to rescue the scientists trapped and get them ready for first aid help. The warped doors were opened and the dozen entered darkness, the only vision was from their night goggles. The first thing they saw was blood, lots of it, splashed on walls, floor, ceiling. Then the creatures attacked from out of the black. Panther-like monsters the size of tigers, but with eight legs and razor-sharp barbs on their tails.
It was one of those barbs that saved Stone's life.
As the screaming and gunfire started, a tail of a creature leaping over his head caught him along the temple. When he came to, everyone else was dead and he started thinking about how he was going to get out. Scooping up a weapon loaded with grenades, which was another good move, he started out, only to run into a humanoid like thing with porcupine-like quills over it's body. After several weeks of answering questions and getting medical treatment, Stone was awaiting the results of the hearing that he was sure would exonerate him.
In stepped a man he hadn't seen in five years: Darius Trent, who greeted him with a job offer. The card he handed him had a stylized three-headed dog and thre words in latin: Politely declining, Stone went into the hearing prepared to continue his career as a Ranger. It was the shortest discharge in history. Cashiered out for medical reasons, he was off the base with the clothes on his back in just a couple of hours.
His personal effects would be shipped to him later. When he called Trent to accept the job, he learned what it was all about. The eight-legged panthers had been mentioned, as well as other creatures. But Stone was the only one who had seen the humanoid beings. Of course, Stone would have to recruit his team. From the list, he got three: All were, or had been, special forces trained in their countries. Related Video Shorts 0 Upload your video. Share your thoughts with other customers.

Please try again later. Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. Mediocre character development, which leads to cookie cutter single dimension characters. Good for kids who want Call of Duty mixed with pseudo-Lovecraftian "horror" without the whole actual "tension" thing. Good read as an initial story line book. Nassise and Merz have created a new world for their readers to explose, much like the Lawson books.
Stone the main charracter is an interesting mix of traumatized survivor and green leader. You get to read his first steps of growing into a battle hardened fighter against a danger from beyond our world. While this book was written as a gateway to a new series, it still holds plenty of action, excitement and a fast pace that will still hold your interest from page one to the back cover.
The Cerberus Protocol
It will be interesting to see both how Stone, and his misfit team grows over the next few books. The writing is crisp, helping set the pace, but does sacrifice some descriptiveness to accomplish this. A trade off, but one that a fan of the old alpha team books, abet with a supernatural twist, will not mind. Over all, an enjoyable start to this new series.
One person found this helpful. I've enjoyed reading stories from both authors previously, but I was only able to slog my way through the first four chapters of this one before I deleted it. This is an exciting book, but character development and suspense could have been better. A recent, similar tale, by Grieg Beck comes to mind. However, it was fast paced and pretty well written. There were more typos than one of the other reviewers mentioned, but Kindle does not lend itself to easy editing, so I do not 'mark' kindle typos.
Still, if this is an ongoing series, I expect I'll be reading them all.
This book is too short and does not develope characters. It is designed just to give you a taste of what may follow. However, at this time there is nothing in the works to follow up. As long as you don't think to much this is a decent read. Characters are pretty basic and plot is thin but I still enjoyed reading the Cerberus Protocol. The book is really short and to the point, the point being lets kill demons. All the stops have been pulled out of this one.
HELLstalkers was very a solid introduction, to what will be a very solid story. See all 13 reviews. Most recent customer reviews.
