$FREE on 12/17/2018 – Matt Legend: Veil of Lies by Denis Mills

All Matt Legend wanted to do that dangerous summer was win the affections of a certain mysterious Southern small town girl and get back to L.A. But when they discover a 26-foot human skeleton inside an ancient burial mound, he is warned if he tells anyone terrible things will happen and terrible things do.

They encounter a deadly cover-up that extends far beyond the archaeological world and into the supernatural one.

They have stumbled on a stasis giant, an entity Abraham Lincoln warned mankind about and what the Dead Sea Scrolls reveal as one of the millions of offspring of the Fallen Ones, who become evil spirits upon the death of their physical bodies. Having a normal life ever again is out of the question as Matt and the superheroine-like girl of his dreams find themselves pitted in a war against the spirit world ─ a war they cannot possibly win. Not without help. Demonic forces pull the stops to try to kill them, their families and their friends when they discover the fallen angels’ secret that ghosts are not dead people. When they try to tell the world, things go from terrible to worse when they discover the demons have an even greater and deadlier secret to protect ─ extraterrestrials are not extraterrestrial.

With an ending you won’t see coming, if he wins, Matt will get the girl. If he loses, seven billion people will perish.
