Description

A power kept secret for 2000 years. A woman who stands to lose everything. 

** From New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author J.F.Penn ** 

India. When a nun is burned alive on the sacred ghats of Varanasi, and the stone she carried is stolen, an international hunt is triggered 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.

Until now.

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. She is helped by Jake Timber from the mysterious ARKANE, a British government agency specializing in paranormal and religious experience. Morgan must risk her own 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 thriller that explores the edges of faith against a backdrop of early Christian history, archaeology and psychology.

Customer Reviews

Stone of Fire

Impeccable researched, this book is endlessly fascinating and entertaining. Those who have an understanding and appreciation of Biblical history—but still enjoy an action-packed “could-it-really-happen” adventure (without raunchy sex and language)—will love this J.F. Penn novel and will want to continue the saga.

Great Series!

If you like series, this one is great! I started book 1 about 10 days ago and am up to book8 already. Several books are fairly short, but the author keeps the action rolling quite well. The characters are well described as well as the history of the artifact they're chasing in that particular book. DEFINITE recommendation for anyone who enjoys reading 👍🏼
