Stone of Destiny
by Thor Stonewell
Rating: 4.9 Stars
Price: $0.99 save $2
Through an onslaught of gunfire a well known professor leaps to his death off the mighty Irish Cliffs of Moher. Discovering a buried secret was his last fruitless act; keeping hidden a far greater secret, a secret concealed by the Queen of England herself, was his sacrificial intention.
As cogs drop into play throughout the United Kingdom a young American in London finds himself caught up in the world’s greatest unknown conspiracy. With the life of his grandfather on the line, and the legitimacy of the British royal family in question, Trevor Emerson races against time and history in his shared quest to find the Stone of Destiny.
From Edinburgh Castle to Piccadilly Circus to King Arthur’s ancient Isle of Avalon, join our heroes down the rabbit hole of royalty where the right secret, sufficiently veiled, can ensure the lifelong reaping of billions of dollars, and worse, the lifelong ruling over billions of lives.
Is the Queen of England playing the world for a con? Where is the Stone of Destiny?
To answer one question is to answer the other.
Stone of Destiny is an archeo-cryptological thriller. At just over 126,000 words the length is that of an average novel. The main focus of the book is the actual stone of destiny, a real-life artifact used in the coronation of English monarchs.
“Stone of Destiny” has been exhaustively researched over the course of three years by the author, Thor Stonewell. While the characters and modern-day plot are fictional, the history taught and featured within its pages is true and hopefully as fascinating as “Stone of Destiny” itself.
Adventure, hidden history, conspiracy, poetry, revenge, murder, treasure maps and more await the next reader.
Why not make that reader you?
Here’s what the reviewers have to say:
What I liked about Stone of Destiny, apart from the intriguing plot and subject matter, was the author’s ability to capture the look and feel of the places he describes and to position us firmly within those worlds. I wish this promising new author success and eagerly look forward to his next offering.
This novel is adventurous and exciting! The story is captivating and keeps you anxiously reading on. The story is complex and the mystery intriguing. There are unexpected twists and turns that kept me fully interested. I really enjoyed it. Very well done.
Easy read, very exciting! Lots of twists and turns. I really hope that a sequel will be released soon!! Thanks for a great book!
This is a very compelling and intriguing story which will captivate the reader. One who has traveled abroad to the “other side of the pond” will enjoy the settings and locations mentioned in the book. The author is a very persuasive and talented writer.
The characters were believable. The story line, while intense, stayed consistent to the chosen genre. I would recommend Stone of Destiny to a friend.

About The Author
Who am I?
I am Thor. Not the God, not the Superhero, just the writer.
Give me a moment and I will either tell you a story, or I will talk to you about what the world could be like if we were all just a little different.
My first completed novel, Stone of Destiny, is written in the vein of literary archeocryptology. You know the type, secrets hidden for centuries, alternative historical approaches, bad guys chasing the hero and heroine, a bit of romance and a surprise ending. You’ve seen it before and will see it again but from what I’ve been told it manages to entertain well.
I am currently working on my second full length novel, with a working title of “The Face in the Mirror”. It is young adult fiction about a teenage boy that discovers… well, I don’t think I will share what he discovers yet. Check back at some point in the future to see if I change my mind.
I currently live in a huge and (over the Summer) hellishly hot city in central Arizona with over four million other people. I have a lovely wife and a furry dog, both of which I adore.
I am a fan of fast-moving fiction and well-researched historical biographies.
I especially love getting email from readers and friends (both known and unknown). If you have something to say (and who doesn’t?) please send me an email at Thor@ThorStonewell.com.
Thank you for considering today’s Book Of The Day – Thor Stonewell and ENT appreciate it.
