Title: Shadows of the Stone Benders
Author: K Patrick Donoghue
Stars: 4.5 out of 5
A compelling story line that involves the reader in a fantastic tale. Not only is it a mystery and mild romance but also has a science fiction twist thrown in for good measure. The main character is not invincible but flesh and blood like the reader. I foresee this being a very successful series that will attract an array of dedicated readers from young adults to seniors. All of whom will be delighted and look forward to the next installment.
I have given this book a 4.5 star rating. I would recommend it to anyone who likes to be entertained by a story with a flair for the unknown.
I received an ARC from Netgalley for my unbiased review.
For fans of James Rollins and Steve Berry, a spine-tingling thriller.
World-renowned scientist Anlon Cully is unexpectedly swept into the thick of a suspense-riddled adventure when his archaeologist uncle, Devlin Wilson, dies under suspicious circumstances.
Prior to his “accidental” fall off a New Hampshire mountain trail, Devlin made the discovery of a lifetime – unearthing undeniable proof that a technologically advanced society thrived on Earth long before archaeologists thought possible!
The key to this shocking evidence lies in a set of mysterious stones forged by a long forgotten race of ancient mariners. Instilled with formidable powers to build, communicate, fight and heal, the stones draw the ruthless attention of villainous thieves hell bent on their acquisition by any means possible…including murder.
Aided by friend Pebbles McCarver and police detective Jennifer Stevens, Anlon follows traces of bewildering clues left by his uncle in a dangerous chase to unravel the stones’ secrets before the killer strikes again and escapes with the priceless artifacts.
Peppered with the thought provoking intrigue of a Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child thriller, Shadows of the Stone Benders leaves readers questioning the technological prowess of modern man and the belief that Neolithic humans were nothing more than unsophisticated cave dwellers.
