ABOUT THE SERIES

At the edge of darkness, where the line between good and evil blurs, three young souls are drawn together by fate to confront an ancient evil that threatens to “reset” the world. The Circle of Six trilogy follows these brave protagonists as they navigate a treacherous landscape filled with danger, mystery, and supernatural-like events that are rooted in solid scientific foundation.

The first book, No Such Thing as Evil, introduces us to a world where evil is not just a concept but a palpable force that can take many forms. The young heroes, each with their unique strengths and challenged by their own human imperfections, must learn to trust one another and work together to survive and overcome.

As the series progresses in Evil Alive, the stakes grow higher and the battles more intense. The friends face off against a cabal of dark figures, the Circle of Six, who seek to harness a power able to shape future events for their own nefarious purposes. With each confrontation, the team comes closer to understanding the true nature of the evil they face—which turns out to be disturbingly less alien than first thought—and the sacrifices they must make to stop it.

In the final book, the Circle of Six reach the climax of their journey. The combined fortitude required to stop the group of men is as surprising as it is life altering. The lines between friend and foe become blurred, and the heroes must confront the darkness within themselves to defeat the darkness from without. It’s a battle for the flawed soul of the world, fought not with swords and spells, but with courage, friendship, and a belief in the power of good to overwhelm and suffocate evil.

The Circle of Six trilogy is a testament to the strength of the human spirit and the unyielding power of hope. It’s a story that will resonate with anyone who has ever faced their fears, dared to dream of a better world, and then taken action—fueled by unconditional love—to make it reality.

Prepare yourself.

SECRECY

What secrets are possible if one can see the future and look back? What if the path along infinite futures can be manipulated? What if it depends on what you do? Now. Right now.

SUSPENSE

Unlike the book’s tension, which waxes and wanes like the portraits of the moon, the suspense pulls you from the very first paragraph and never lets up, ever present, holding you—like gravity.

INTRIGUE

It straddles future and present, manifesting a sense of human striving even in the face of bleakness. It’s hopelessly full of hope.

REVIEWS

Evil Alive – Reviewed by Kristina Turner for Reader Views

Hunkins’ techno-thriller is darkness blended with light. On one side is the Circle of Six, whose evil is unquestionable. Each of the men of the circle is a force of depravity, selfishness, and cruelty. Descriptions of their actions, torture sessions, and machinations made my skin positively crawl. I don’t recommend reading any of their chapters right before bed! Nightmare fuel! Conversely, Chris’s band of friends are a powerful force for good, radiating empathy, unconditional love, and kindness.

No Such Thing as Evil – Reviewed by Kristina Turner for Reader Views

The novel put me off at first, as the opening chapters put you immediately in the oubliette of The Circle of Six’s vile torture chambers, which made my skin crawl in every way. But the chapters are broken into short sections; thus, very quickly I was meeting Laura Richards, a clearly optimistic and good person concerned unselfishly for the plight of her students and neighbors. A relief and palette cleanser.

Evil Alive – Reviewed by Vincent Dublado for Readers’ Favorite

Hunkins wastes no time in sustaining the element of thrills that he wants to establish in this series. Evil Alive settles into a cat-and-mouse structure, but not without brains, as every chapter intensifies the more Chris and his friends are getting close to the answers. The result becomes convincing and organized, especially when it throws in formidable villains that mean business.

No Such Thing as Evil – Reviewed by Pikasho Deka for Readers’ Favorite

If neo-noir sci-fi thrillers are your jam, No Such Thing as Evil is right up your alley. Author Andrew Hunkins’ blockbuster of a novel keeps you on the edge of your seat from start to finish. The plot moves at lightning speed, keeping you glued to the pages with unexpected twists and turns that you never see coming.

Fitger’s Bookstore Review

Finishing up No Such Thing as Evil by Andrew Hunkins and it reminds me of Wanderers by Chuck Wendig. I am going to be obsessing about it all day until I can find out how it ends. Techno thrillers are a special kind of suspense.

Andrew Hunkins

Midwest Book Review declared Andrew Hunkins a truly gifted storyteller for his technothriller No Such Thing as Evil, which received the Midwest Independent Publishing Association’s coveted Silver Finalist award. Hunkins defines the technothriller subgenre as the thinking person’s science fiction. MBR Bookwatch acclaimed his debut work as a deftly crafted novel of the first order.

 

Pulling from decades of experience as a communications technology entrepreneur, Hunkins skillfully weaves real-life sci-tech into near-future worlds using gripping plots and fresh narratives approachable by general adult audiences. Greenspan’s Bookshelf’s own Able Greenspan called No Such Thing as Evil a solidly entertaining read from beginning to end.

 

Hunkins lives with his wife in Minnesota near their two children. He is often killed by thirteen-year-olds while playing Call of Duty on Xbox but can hold his own alongside squad mates of his own age class. Gummy bears are his favorite candy, especially the clear ones.
