Summary: The Arkana Series: Where Alternative History Meets Archaeology Adventure Volume Three - The Dragon's Wing Enigma "There's a 52% chance that the next Dan Brown will be a woman. or should we just make that 100% now?" (Kindle Nation) Runaway Bride Cassie Forsythe's checkered resume never included the job of babysitter. Former college freshman, yes. Amateur relic hunter, certainly. Seer for a secret organization, absolutely. But babysitter? Not likely Cassie is packing for the next leg of a treasure hunt to recover a mythological artifact known as the Sage Stone when trouble comes knocking at her door. Trouble takes the form of fourteen year old runaway Hannah Curtis. Hannah isn't your average teenager. She happens to be the youngest wife of aged polygamist Abraham Metcalf. Metcalf leads the religious cult known as the Blessed Nephilim and he covets the Sage Stone for himself. Unwelcome Guest Hannah's untimely arrival creates a predicament for Cassie. The Nephilim isn't supposed to know that anyone else is hunting the Sage Stone. More than that, the cult must never discover the existence of the Arkana - the secret society for which Cassie works. The Arkana has spent centuries recovering artifacts of ancient civilizations which predate patriarchy--advanced goddess-worshipping cultures on every continent. Their archaeological troves document the lost history of the world and need to be protected at all costs. Unfortunately, Hannah could lead the cult straight to the Arkana's underground cache of relics. Cassie contacts Faye, the Arkana's elderly leader, for help. The old woman spirits the girl away to her farmhouse in the country. Faye promises to keep Hannah out of sight so that Cassie and her teammates can resume their quest. Tricky Trinkets Cassie, librarian Griffin, and bodyguard Erik face a daunting task. Five sequential artifacts reveal the hiding place of the Sage Stone. The treasure hunters must not only retrieve the relics before the Nephilim, they must also substitute forgeries in place of the real artifacts to keep the cult from discovering that it has competition. Luck has been on their side so far. They've recovered the first artifact with their foes none the wiser. The Arkana team flies to Malta, hoping to unearth the second artifact among the ruined temples of a long-dead civilization. After a fruitless search of the archipelago, their quest leads them northward into the Basque region of Europe. Meanwhile, Abraham's son Daniel is combing the same terrain and narrowing the gap between them. Dragon's Wing Dilemma In an isolated mountaintop cave, they learn that the next relic can only be discovered if they "keep true to the dragon's wing." The clue baffles them. What does it mean? Cassie and her friends are running out of time. With Nephilim operatives closing in, will they all survive this mission? Will the cult capture Hannah and breach the defenses of the Arkana itself? Follow the dragon's wing to learn the answers. Codice inventario libreria

Riassunto: AMAZON BESTSELLING SERIES - For Action, Thriller, and Mystery Fiction Fans
Archaeology Adventures That Defy History


How does a lost civilization keep its most precious and dangerous artifact from falling into the wrong hands? The relic's guardians scatter clues to its hiding place across the entire planet. Three thousand years later, a secret society and a fanatical religious cult vie against one another in a global treasure hunt to claim the prize. The Arkana wants to preserve it for posterity. The Blessed Nephilim wants to exploit it to create a terrifying new world order. Only one faction can win. More importantly, only one can survive.

In THE DRAGON'S WING ENIGMA, agents of the Arkana and the Nephilim leave no stone unturned on the island of Malta in their search for lost artifacts. The Arkana team frantically scavenges for clues among the ruined temples of the archipelago with their foes combing the same terrain only steps behind them.

A new crisis erupts on the home front when a runaway bride seeks refuge with the Arkana. The girl is the youngest wife of the Nephilim's polygamous leader and she may have accidentally led the Nephilim straight to the Arkana's cache of matristic artifacts.

Matters come to a head in an isolated mountaintop cave when the relic hunters learn that their prize can only be discovered if they "keep true to the dragon's wing." With Nephilim operatives blocking their escape route, will they live long enough to solve the riddle? Will the Nephilim recapture their leader's wife and breach the defenses of the Arkana itself? More than treasure is at stake this time around.

Psychic Cassie, bodyguard Erik, and librarian Griffin find their quest hampered at every turn by agents of a cult known as the Blessed Nephilim. The cults leader, Abraham Metcalf, wants to exploit the power of the Sage Stone to win a war of religious genocide.
