A power kept secret for 2000 years — and a desperate race to save her family before it’s too late.
When Oxford psychologist Morgan Sierra’s twin sister and young niece are kidnapped, she will do anything to get them back — even if it means trusting Jake Timber, agent of the secret organization, ARKANE.
ARKANE investigates religious and supernatural mysteries around the world and Morgan needs their help to find the legendary Pentecost stones before the ancient artifacts fall into the wrong hands. The twelve stones with mystical powers were gifted to the Apostles and are now scattered across the globe, kept hidden by the Keepers.
Morgan and Jake race against time on a dangerous quest to find the stones, prophesied to unleash miracles when reunited. But evil forces also seek the stones, willing to kill anyone who stands in their way.
From the winding streets of Varanasi, India, to the medieval cathedrals of Europe, and on to the heart of Arizona, USA, Morgan and Jake will risk their lives to find the stones. But Morgan has been betrayed before and puts her faith only in saving her family.
She will even challenge Jake and ARKANE if she must, to protect her twin and niece. With so much at stake, Morgan will face her worst fears and fight for redemption. But can she save her family and stop the ancient artifacts from falling into the wrong hands before it’s too late?
