The Stone of Knowing
by Allan N. Packer
The untroubled world of young Thomas Stablehand is changed forever when he stumbles upon an unusual stone. With the thoughts and intents of others laid bare, he eagerly indulges his curiosity. But seeing into other minds isn’t like Thomas expected. And troubles are only beginning.
When invaders attack Arvenon, Thomas turns to his friend Will Prentis, a gifted and ambitious leader who has risen rapidly in the ranks of the king’s army.
Will is fearless, and where he leads men follow. With the kingdom on the brink, Will leads a small band on a perilous quest to thwart the invaders. Fearing his secret will be exposed, and hoping to help prevent catastrophe, Thomas flees with them.
But dangerous enemies seek the stone. As Will faces a relentless opponent whose true purpose remains hidden, Thomas must decide what price he’s willing to pay to protect the stone and preserve the kingdom.
