The Stone TestamentCelia Rees
fantasy, young adult
As foretold in ancient texts, and marked by the Mayan Long Count, time has nearly run out. Foreshadowed by a sequence of bizarre phenomena and natural disasters, the End Time is fast approaching. Only Abraham Black has the knowledge to stop this from happening, ancient wisdom inherited from those who have gone before him: Edwardian scholar, Aurel Lockwood and American adventurer, Brice Ambrose Stone. With the help of his son, Adam, suicide cult survivor, Zillah, and streetwise Kris, he hopes to outwit the sinister forces ranged against him before it is too late.
To succeed, Adam and the others must travel back into the deep past. They must survive in a doomed world, dominated by terrifying Beast Gods, and defeat an adversary of awesome power who is bent on utter destruction.
