Book Description

For ten years Kal Hakala has been the Bureau of Supernatural Investigation’s top man, the longest surviving agent in its blood-soaked history. The World At Large has no idea that The World Under exists. And its vampires, demons, zombies, and mythic monsters are growing increasingly restless. In all Kal’s time with the Bureau, there has been no case he couldn’t crack, no monster he couldn’t kill. Then a plague of zombies comes to Denver, along with a vicious serial killer dubbed The Organ Donor. A childhood encounter with a legendary monster has left Kal with an endless supply of rage and hatred for all things Supernatural. But now the target is on his forehead, and the Un-Dead don’t die easy. The Bureau has a few aces of its own—a few magicians, a cyber-ghost. Unfortunately Kal is a perennial loner ... And the World Under is wise to His tricks.

About the Author

Born in Helsinki, Finland, Mark Everett Stone arrived in the U.S. at a young age and promptly dove into the world of the fantastic. Starting at age seven with the Iliad and the Odyssey, he went on to consume every scrap of Norse Mythology he could get his grubby little paws on. At age thirteen he graduated to Tolkien and Heinlein, building up a book collection that soon rivaled the local public library’s. In college Mark majored in Journalism and minored in English. Mark is feverishly working on his next book, The Judas Line, while his amazingly patient wife, Brandie, keeps him and their two sons, Aeden and Gabriel, in check. You can find Mark on the Web at

5.0 out of 5 stars A Paranormal Wonder! July 16, 2011
From the funny, attention-grabbing opening line "Mondays suck. Always. Standard rule of life.", Things to Do in Denver When You're Un-Dead, had me completely hooked. Mark Stone has built a fantastic new world that was fascinating to read.
The cast of characters were gruff and gritty, but also likeable and worth rooting for. The center of the story, Kal Hakala, is the ultimate hero. Kal is a tough guy, but also can be kind and generous when the circumstances warrant it. Clues lead to the belief that Kal has a secret. A secret that has led him to this point in his life, and could be his undoing. He is the ultimate leader and go-to guy in a company of preeminent undercover warriors. Each member of the team, from Pat the receptionist/psychiatrist, Sue and Brian, fellow agents, on up to the man in charge, BB, is intriguing and worthwhile of their own story.
The world that Mark Stone has (hopefully) invented for Things to Do in Denver When You're Un-Dead is so thorough, I don't believe a single detail was left amiss. There is a weapon or computer program to combat every situation. The beings who occupy this world range from miniature creatures, Brownies, who keep his life running smoothly as long as he supplies them with snacks and live in a miniature RV under his desk, all the way up to Class 5 demons who are the ultimate enemy of the team. There are vampires, zombies and ghouls to contend with. And believe me when I say that in this world they are not the misunderstood and endearing creatures we've been reading lately!
Things to Do in Denver When You're Undead is perhaps the "smartest" book I have read in quite a while. The dialogue is sharp, witty, funny and kept me reading obsessively. The plot was brilliant.

5.0 out of 5 stars A smash hit that I couldn't stop reading. July 9, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
When Mark and I talked about our different novels I was quickly taken by his title. I am generally not a zombie kind of guy. I am sci/fi through and through. But I wanted to give it a fair read. Boy did I find more than I bargained for. Mark is a great writer being able to take you into his story and not letting you leave.
I thoroughly enjoyed Kal and the rest of the BSI. Kal is a cross between Bogart and a jack-ass (Sorry Mom). I loved his attitude!!! The characters were very strong and it wasn't just another zombie book.

I look forward to the sequel!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Read! July 8, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
I love paranormal books. LOVE. So when I found out Mark Everett Stone was offering a chance to review an advanced copy of his book I dove at the chance.

I was not to be disappointed, either. From the moment I began the first page to the final flip of the last, I was hooked. Mark's snarky to serious main character offers up equal doses of sarcasm and action despite his deeply damaged soul. Kal Hakala is a man torn by loyalty to his team at the Bureau of Supernatural Investigation, deep personal hurts that span twenty years and an all consuming rage that seems to be an entity of its own.

With an equal balance of information and action, Mark shoves his reader into the life of an agent of the BSI, dealing with magic, zombies and Class 5 supernaturals that make vampires seem like fluffy kittens. Stir in a healthy dose of fairy-like Brownies with an obsessive compulsive cleaning disorder, a newbie agent dubbed Green Pea, a haunting that may or may not be a good thing and a whole lot of painful back story and you have a mess waiting to happen.

The writing is sharp, fast and engaging. The characters are fun and/or not so fun in all the right places. Mark has captured the soul of his lead character so well that it's like the reader is sitting having a $300 bottle of vodka with him, chased with an aromatic and equally expensive cigar while Kal spins tales of his hey day, punctuated by live action reenactments so real you wish you hadn't eaten dinner.

Five stars, two thumbs, fantastic.

4.0 out of 5 stars UFR Reviews Things to do in Denver April 4, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
There are a lot of books out there, that have a kind of magical police force if you will. Something who's whole job it is to keep the paranormal elements in line. And I actually really like those kinds of books because it lets the book take on an element of mystery/crime solving type books, all while having the flare that you want in a paranormal/urban fantasy book.

Another reason I like these types of books is because the author is really allowed to create a magical world that normally exists within a normal one. And each other's created world is so unique and so fun to go through and explore. I really enjoyed the world that was created within this book. It was a pretty well described and easily imaginable world.

I do have to say that my only real issue with the book was the beginning. I felt like it took to long to pick up, and I had to kind of dig in my heels to get into the plot. But once I got into the book, it was well worth the wait.

I am a person who really does enjoy the crime mystery element that some urban fantasy books have, and that is probably because I do from time to time enjoy a good traditional crime book. So when I started reading this book I was excited to learn more about the serial killer The Organ Donor. It's always fun and thrilling to watch the main character try and find the answers to all the questions that finding a serial killer can bring about. I love wanting to turn the page quicker so I can know what happens next.

I really truly enjoyed getting to know Kal throughout the book. I thought he was not only easy to read but he was also easy to become emotionally involved with.

More About the Author

If you're reading this, then you've actually read, or are considering reading my book. Congrats on your good taste.
Currently I live in Denver. Yes, Denver. Actually on purpose, too. I know, came as a shock to me, as well. As you can tell by my photo, I am a family man first and foremost. My wife, Brandie, and my sons Aeden and Gabriel, are the motivating factors in my life, the reason I write. Actually, the main reason I write. The others include a need to share my views with people who will pay me for it and a deep aversion to anything that looks or smells like actual work.
Currently I am working on the sequel to 'Things to do in Denver when you're Undead'.
