Elizabeth Bracken’s father, Ryan, is a researcher of phenomena and folklore for the United States government. Since her mother left them, Liz has enjoyed shadowing Ryan on his “Indiana Jones” adventures. But this time, Ryan’s journey is a simple search for the source of a bland, black stone at a remote lake in British Columbia and Liz starts college soon and must prepare for her upcoming ACT test.
Supporting his daughter’s decision to stay with relatives in Sitka, Alaska and study, Ryan omits telling Liz the stone is actually a rare diamond with mysterious qualities. The trip should only take a few days, and if he finds the jackpot, he’ll return for his beautiful sidekick and include her in revealing the greatest discovery of his career.
But Ryan doesn’t return … and his satellite phone quits working.
Surrounded by unfamiliar cousins and a thousand miles from home, Elizabeth is forced to reach for help beyond herself. In Kirus, shadows of the paranormal collide with truth as Liz uncovers the unbelievable. Does she have the courage to cross an unknown realm and face a cursed race to save her father?
In this religious thriller, a journey of exploration and treasure hunting lead the Bracken family to discover the reality of biblical ideals hidden in modern folklore.
