An ancient secret worth killing for ...During the Middle Ages, rumours about an ancient Egyptian text spread like wildfire among alchemists.
Known as the Emerald Tablet, this sacred text was said to contain the secret of creation.
Some claimed it was crafted by the Egyptian god Thoth.
Others claimed it was written by the Greek god Hermes.
But there were a few who believed its true author was none other than Moses himself. Shock waves ripple across the world when an archaeologist is viciously murdered moments after he claims to have found ancient Templar symbols marking the way to a hidden treasure vault. And the discovery of a Maltese cross etched into the bloodied hilt of the dagger in his back makes his claims ring alarmingly true.
Caedmon Aisquith, Templar expert and hero of Stones of Fire, sets off on a hunt for the vault, only to uncover a far more intriguing puzzle - is the Templar code in fact the key to the long lost, mystical Emerald Tablet? Caedmon's quest to decipher the symbols rapidly becomes a desperate struggle against a covert and terrifying enemy, who will stop at nothing to use the Emerald Tablet's power to bring about apocalypse. Can anyone halt their deadly mission before all hell is unleashed?
