Title: Where The Stones Speak
Iona, clan ruler on The Isle of Virgins, hears the weathered stele as they whisper ancient truths and foretellings. But fearful she will be bound as a sibyl and forced to proclaim prophecy to the multitudes, she tells no one about the oracles she receives.
However, when the Scrolls of Destiny are rebuked by King Tarquin of Rome and he learns of Iona’s existence, he pursues her and those she protects with his armored legions and a newly acquired weapon; Attius, a young augur with prophetic talents of his own. And the demon, Asmode, once bound by the ancient sibyl, Sheba, seeks revenge for his centuries of subdual forcing Iona to find her sacred ring of stones before she can be captured by those who seek to silence the last free sibyl.
But Iona is unsure if man is worthy of the divine prophecy and longs to see the noble truths in man before she will sacrifice her own desires and dreams bound behind the sacred standing stones that will both protect and entrap her.
