The Necromancer of Etowah by JK Dent
A Powerhouse of Danger and Mystery
WHILE EXPLORING A CAVE beside the beautiful Etowah River Stone and Stuart Pickett found a pouch of human bones that were used by a Native American shaman. Stuart began to use the bones to call on the powers of necromancy to make extraordinary things happen in his life. A dichotomy of events ensues that put both brothers in legal jeopardy and casts Stuart’s soul into eternal danger. Stone must find the key to unlock the mysteries of Stuart’s fate before it is too late.
On the surface Stuart finds that he has the Midas touch with everything he does, yet under the surface his older, wiser brother sees that a path of destruction and death follows closely on his heels. Stone undertakes a relentless quest to unlock the mysteries of the bones, but the closer he gets to the truth the more elusive and perilous it becomes.
Will Stone find the answers in time before anyone else dies and Stuart slides into the shadow world of evil? Stone’s desire to help his brother brings him face to face with his own demons while he wrestles with issues of faith, power and control. The price he pays along the way proves to be more than he expected.

Review by Amazon Customer: I really enjoyed the story. This was an easy read and suspenseful throughout. I was engrossed with the storyline and it kept me wanting to read beyond any reasonable hour late at night. The characters are well developed. The author is very descriptive in the details of the characters and the surroundings. I would definitely recommend this book to friends and family.
