This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
In this thrilling archaeological mystery, scientist Anlon Cully hunts for evidence of a long-forgotten civilization, a race of ancient mariners who possessed a sixth-sense lost to the ages — the ability to detect and interact with the Earth’s magnetic field.
With this special gift, the prehistoric civilization crafted stone tools with astonishing powers. Inexplicably, the advanced culture vanished from the pages of history…until a set of their special stones was discovered by Anlon’s uncle, archaeologist Devlin Wilson.
Devlin was brutally murdered, leaving behind the stones and a set of confounding clues. An ancient map, a curious statue and three cryptic journals. Somehow, the clues are linked. But how? That’s the puzzling mystery Anlon must solve.
And time is not on his side…for there are others seeking to solve the same riddle…heartless fiends who crave the most fearsome of the magnetic stones…the Flash Stone.
Forged as a building tool, the Flash Stone can cut and shape rock with astounding precision. In the wrong hands, however, it can be wielded as a horrifying weapon. And it is endowed with yet another gift, a secret power known only to those who unravel the mystery.
Joined by friends Pebbles McCarver and Jennifer Stevens, Anlon races to solve the mystery and find the Flash Stone before it falls prey to savage villains trailing close behind.
The Search Continues
Race for the Flash Stone is the second book in The Anlon Cully Chronicles series. I was really impressed by the first book and this one didn't disappoint me. This book starts where Book One ended and does end in a soft cliffhanger as the story will be continued in the next book. There is violence.
The book blurb adequately describes the storyline so I'm not going to repeat that info here. The author did a great job of explaining the history and science of these ancient stones as well as the civilization that created and used these devices. There is a lot of history between characters in the storyline that keep you guessing what twists and turns will be revealed next. It definitely kept me riveted. I really enjoyed this book and had a hard time putting it down. Now I want to read more of his books and can't wait for the next one to be published.
I received a copy of this book from the author and chose to leave a review for other readers.
