A power kept secret for 2000 years.
A nun is burned alive on the sacred ghats of Varanasi, India. The ancient stone she carries is stolen, triggering an international hunt for the relics of the early church.
Forged in the fire and blood of martyrs, the Pentecost stones have been handed down through generations of Keepers who kept their power and locations secret.
The Keepers are being murdered, the stones stolen by those who would use them for evil in a world transformed by religious fundamentalism.
Oxford University psychologist Morgan Sierra is forced into the search when her sister and niece are held hostage, aided by Jake Timber from the mysterious ARKANE, a British agency investigating the supernatural. Morgan must risk her life to save her family, but will she ultimately be betrayed?
From ancient Christian sites in Spain, Italy, and Israel to the far reaches of Iran and Tunisia, Morgan and Jake must track down the stones through the myths of the early church in a race against time before a new Pentecost is summoned — this time powered by the fires of evil.
The first in the ARKANE series, Stone of Fire is a fast-paced, action-packed thriller that explores the edges of faith against a backdrop of early Christian history and archaeology.
