Curious what new books you will find at MEI Secondary Library next year? Take a peek at what has been ordered so far!
Four of our favorite authors — Bill Myers, Frank Peretti, Angela Hunt and Alton Gansky — have teamed up and written a new supernatural thriller full of suspense, and the beginning of a new series! Invitation is cycle one of the Harbringers series and can be found on our shelves at F Mye.
When author Bill Myers was asked if he could explain the concept for this new [Harbringers] series, he answered:
“I (Bill Myers) originally came up with the idea: What if several authors wrote a series of linked novellas that would read like episodes of a TV series? From there, we decided to give each author a unique character. Each novella is from the first-person POV of one of the Harbinger team members as they stumble into supernatural adventures and investigations.”

He’s at it again with his newest creation, The Curse of Crow Hollow!
This book hops out of here regularly, so come and check it out as soon as you can! Not convinced? Last year another book of his, The Devil Walks in Mattingly, was the most borrowed book of 2015!
“… recalls Flannery O’Connor with its glimpses of the grotesque and the supernatural. The story unwinds slowly and with a convincing voice that draws the reader deep into the unexplainable.”
