Every curse must have means to lift it…
Mythology fiction is a good academic topic. Stella Hunter has made it into a life-time pursuit. That’s why she insists that every mythological curse must have means to lift it…or so she hopes.
If she’s wrong, a child will live his life teetering on the edge of the abyss. It’s why she stubbornly insists that there is hope, even when all evidence points to the contrary.
This time, however, the artifact that has the power to remove the curse is as controversial as the history surrounding it. It is not ancient. Merely historical. And the Vatican has spent centuries denying its existence—or its magical power. Those church historians who dare to include any information about its existence in their books are excommunicated—and ultimately perish in accidents. Stella is given a warning to cease her pursuit when mere minutes after she and her family leave her friend’s house, it goes up in flames.
From Rome to the French Riviera and across the Channel to an obscure village in England, where a shady US industrialist plans to join his corporate empire with that of a French aristocrat known as a terrorist financier, the quest turns into a pulse-pounding action.
Unlike most supernatural thriller books, this page-turning adventure involves not just Carter and Stella but their adopted son, Gabriel, who has no idea just how unique he is.
Then suddenly, the trail of the artifact that the Vatican wants so badly to destroy, they send one of the ‘dead-and-buried’ assassins after Stella and Carter, goes cold. It stops abruptly in a library of a young British aristocrat, who’s just sold his ancestral seat due to bankruptcy.
The Harmony Scroll is the second book in the Peacetaker series. If you like spiritual thriller books that are also a page turner, similar to Dan Brown, James Rollins and Paula Wynne’s The Sacred Symbol, you’ll love this second installment of the Peacetaker tale.
