THE ARKANA SERIES: Where Alternative History Meets Archaeology Adventure
Volume Two – The Mountain Mother Cipher
College freshman Cassie Forsythe never set out to be a relic hunter. Her life unravels shortly after her sister is murdered while protecting the location of an ancient artifact known as the Sage Stone. Cassie learns that her sister belonged to a secret society called the Arkana. The girl allies herself with them and agrees to help recover the artifact in hopes of finding her sister’s killer. Cassie, along with bodyguard Erik and librarian Griffin, is sent to search Minoan ruins on the island of Crete where they are attacked by operatives of a religious cult known as the Blessed Nephilim.
Although keeping the relic out of the Nephilim’s hands is important, it is even more critical to keep the cult from finding the Arkana’s troves of archaeological treasure. This cache, which has taken centuries to amass, proves an alternative history of civilization predating the onset of patriarchy by thousands of years. Unfortunately, the pursuit of the Sage Stone puts the Nephilim and the Arkana on a collision course.
At the worst possible moment, the Arkana team discovers that the Nephilim aren’t their only competitors for the lost relic. Unforeseen obstacles and unknown enemies thwart their efforts to complete their mission and escape unharmed. The answer to The Mountain Mother Cipher isn’t as simple as anyone expects.
