The Relic Hunter …
One trip to an antique shop in France changed everything.
Suddenly, Aaron’s dreams have become impossibly real. He even knows he’s dreaming and is able to manipulate the people and circumstances inside the dreams to an outcome of his own design.
How did this happen, and why has he never been able to do it before? Does it have to do with the ancient bronze box, and the black cube he discovered hidden inside it? Did the box and it’s contents really come from Daniel’s tomb, as the shop-keep insisted?
And, what about the mysterious John? Who is he really? Where does he come from, and how does he know so much about Aaron and his recently acquired treasure?
When past and present collide, death is at the door.
Mandie is smart, courageous and guarded. The simple sound of her voice can make Aaron’s heart hammer. Even with the scar on her cheek, he sees her as nothing short of beautiful.
Surviving difficult and deadly circumstances has left Mandie keeping men at arm’s length. Her life, and the life of her son, has depended on her caution. She learned the hard way that those closest to us are sometimes the ones that can deal the most damage.
The walls she’s built around her heart are solid and thick. And though it’s true that living in a self-imposed fortress can be the safest place on the planet, but it can also be the loneliest.
However, there is always an exception to the rule. Aaron is the exception; kind, and gentle, and always ready to lend a hand and share a smile. Mandie senses no ill will from him towards her or her son, or anyone else. But, just as she’s ready to drop her guard and allow him to step closer, her past comes flying at her, placing all of them in terrible danger.
There is no such thing as coincidence.
John seems to appear out of nowhere. He somehow knows more about Aaron than Aaron knows about himself. How is this possible when the two are total strangers?
How does he know about the stone Aaron has recently acquired? And how does he know Aaron has been dream-hopping? John is also aware that Aaron’s skill with his newly discovered talent are developing and perfecting at a rapid pace, and he’s far more comfortable with the ability than Aaron is.
Try as he might, Aaron can get very little information out of John. He’s an enigma and never around for long. Where does he come from and how is he so knowledgeable of a mystery shrouded by millenniums?
Is the dream-stone in Aaron’s possession magical? Or is it Aaron that’s become magical? Is magical even the right description to define the unique ability he’s suddenly able to do at will?
There is much to cover, and more to discover, and very little time left to put all the pieces together.
