It has been months since John Carter's estranged brother, Henry, has gone missing. When last heard from, he was sailing off to Bermuda in search of an author whose books deal with the esoteric traditions of past ages.
Reluctantly, John joins Henry's old Special Forces Teammates on a trip to Bermuda, hoping to discover the truth behind Henry's disappearance. But not all is as it seems in Bermuda, and the puzzle that awaits John on the small island paradise will prove to be more sinister than anything the world has seen in a very long time.
As the fingers of an ancient evil seek to draw him into another world - a world where all of Hell is trying to break loose - John must confront the truth of his own past...and pray that he might survive its revelation...
...that the world might survive its revelation.
Described as "Dan Brown meets Lost meets Left Behind," Progeny takes the reader through the heart of the Bermuda Triangle and drops them in a world where biblical legends and ancient mythologies - the similarities of which Hopkins "describes with academic dexterity" - reign terrifyingly supreme. Buckle up! Progeny is "equal parts religious thriller and action-packed roller coaster ride!"

A Man Overboard
"A delicately laced story of hope, love, suspense, and intrigue." - best-selling author, Larry Enright, FOUR YEARS FROM HOME
"A page-turner you won't be able to put down!" - Douglas Dorow, THE NINTH DISTRICT
SURVIVING THE FALL WAS JUST THE BEGINNING...
When Jack's mother-in-law sends him and Stacey on a two-week cruise, they're determined to make the most of it, to forget about the cancer and its cold grip on their future.
Planning to revisit the earlier days of their marriage, and the unbridled romance that defined it, they'll lose themselves in paradise while building the resolve needed to endure the coming hell.
At least that was his plan...
Instead, he'll be cast into an ocean of deceit and dark conspiracy that will place doubt upon all that he holds dear in this world, putting to the test just how much a man's love can truly endure.
The Solomon Key
The Puppet Masters are ready to usher in their prophesied utopia - a future world the rest of us won't be around to see, though we support their global efforts to enslave us believing that we will. But when the missing piece of their diabolical puzzle is discovered by archeologists, their end game is out of the bag...
Except that the ancient relic has fallen into the hands of an unsuspecting Matthew Scott, a man who wants nothing other than to stay off the grid, hiding from his former employees and the atrocious sins they had him commit.
As armies of professional killers hunt him down, and with billions of lives trapped within the evil cross-hairs of a new world order, Scott must come to terms with his destiny... while the entire world, retribution for his crimes, and the only person he has ever cared for all hang in the balance.
An action-packed thriller, THE SOLOMON KEY is steeped in occult history as well as biblical prophesy. It takes place within a future "New America" while the stage is finally set for world government.
"This is not a book for casual readers who don't want a lot of deep and historical facts and information in their story. Mr. Hopkins weaves a truly spectacular mystery, adventure story revolving around a mystical ring discovered in the Middle East. Interspersed in the text are quotes from the Bible, Templar and Rosicrucian history, Free Mason writing and middle eastern history all providing a 'factual' base for the enormity of the crisis facing the world. While it may not be everyone's cup of tea, I would highly recommend it as a must read for those who love history, and are hoping for a better world tomorrow. Not to mention this adventure makes 'The Davinci Code' look like a walk in the park." - Amazon.com

The Demon Signet
AN ANCIENT RELIC...A SECRET BROTHERHOOD...AN INFERNAL HUNTER...AND FOUR FRIENDS ON THE BACK ROADS OF HELL.
When a flight from Canada has to make an emergency stop at a small, remote airport in the middle of the mountains, Heather, Ashley, Ian, and Marcus decide to make the drive home to Maryland rather than wait for the airplane to be repaired. The only thing on their minds is getting home in time for Christmas.
Little do they know, however, that their rental car has come with a surprise, and that just seeing another Christmas might be a miracle too big to expect.
As an ancient puzzle is constructed along their path, and a blood-thirsty demon hunts them for what he believes is his, the four friends will find themselves caught in the midst of an age-long battle between Light and Darkness, ultimately coming face to face with the dark secrets hidden deep within their own hearts.
It's that time of the year again, that row of calendar boxes that we all spend months looking forward to. Summer vacation. A chance to escape the daily grind, to relax, unwind, reconnect and get some sun.
For Jeff, those days have always been spent in Cape May, NJ, and this year is no different. At least in that respect. But a terrible surprise awaits those vacationing in Cape May County this year, as those soaking in the rays will be forced to turn their attention from tan lines and funnel cake to simply surviving the rest of the week.
Remnant: Progeny Book II
The Progeny story continues as Paul, Jackson, and Hunter find themselves left behind in the wake of the solstice. The activation of the pyramid has led to some sinister changes that not even the Fallen are safe from, and as Henry's friends join the remnant of pure-blooded castaways in trying to understand their new predicament, a terrible discovery is made concerning Chadwick's doomsday theories and John's end of days theology. But can they follow their friends out of this hell in time to warn the world?
