The power to raise the dead… will mean the end of all life.
Jake Timber, agent of ARKANE — the secret organization charged with protecting the world from supernatural threat — is flying solo.
His usual partner, Morgan Sierra, is on leave, still reeling from a recent brush with death. But evil takes no vacations, so when the corpse of a monk is discovered beneath a New Orleans cemetery — cruelly murdered, his body broken and his flesh carved with occult Voodoo markings — Jake knows it’s bad news.
But even he’s not ready for the truth: someone is looking for the Hand of Ezekiel.
Imbued with the power to raise the dead, the Hand was broken into five pieces, but now someone has found it… or something like it, because someone is killing people in New Orleans, then raising them from the dead as monsters.
In over his head, Jake needs Morgan’s help if he hopes to beat back this evil. But even if she comes back to help, will it be enough? The Hand of Ezekiel is being assembled. The dead are rising from the grave.
And the power to stop it all can only be found in the land of the dead… in the Valley of Dry Bones.

“Non-stop action! As usual in the ARKANE stories the reader is hooked during the first paragraph and the line is reeled in until that last page when you are deposited back in the boat of reality.” – David C. Taylor
“Every word moves the plot forward and kept my attention. I hated having to put it down when I was required to and eager to pick it up again. There were a couple twists that I did not see coming, and sets us up nicely for the next book, while still being a complete story by itself.” – Kinba
“Valley of Dry Bones is impossible to put down. By chapter 3, I was finding it difficult to leave my reading nest.
The characters are engaging, the situations are page-turners, and the descriptions of the locations (some of which I have visited) are true to life and make you feel like you're there.” – Sharon
“Fast-paced, action adventure stories are the best. The ARKANE series has continued to deliver on the high-octane stories containing the mad grab for religious relics, against a short timeframe, with foils by interested parties, and masterminded shenanigans by villainous sorts. By the time you reach the end, Penn would have convinced you to head off to the various settings that she gloriously depicted with a touch of artistic license to add the mystery edge. I gobbled up this book.” – Mich Monk
“This latest addition to the ARKANE series won’t disappoint! The fast-paced story takes readers on a journey through New Orleans and Spain and beyond before Morgan and Jake reunite in their quest to find the relics of the Hand of Ezekiel. JF Penn weaves together rich descriptions of place and wonderful imagery with well-researched historical fact in such a way that makes me want to follow in Morgan and Jake’s footsteps.” – Jocelyn P.
