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.

    Really enjoyed this book. Very well written with an over riding sense of trepidation and expectation. Once I started reading I couldn't put it down and now I've finished I feel a sense of loss.
  • Stone Fire Rubbish

    By Josefeind
    I could not even finish this, this made me so mad and there are others in the series, wow. How much effort was put into this childish rubbish. At least try and make your writing believable or start writing fantasy stuff. Bad bad bad bad and stupid too.

    I was really looking forward to reading the book. Sadly, I couldn't finish it as it was so badly written with a cast of incredibly annoying characters.
  • Great read

    The book is brilliant I thoroughly enjoyed it - biggest problem was that once you got started it was difficult to put it down.
