Overview

For fans of Dan Brown's Robert Langdon novels, a riveting archaeological mystery.

World-renowned scientist Anlon Cully is unexpectedly swept into the thick of a suspense-riddled adventure when his archaeologist uncle, Devlin Wilson, dies under suspicious circumstances.

Prior to his “accidental” fall off a New Hampshire mountain trail, Devlin made the discovery of a lifetime – unearthing undeniable proof that a technologically advanced society thrived on Earth long before archaeologists thought possible!

The key to this shocking evidence lies in a set of mysterious stones forged by a long forgotten race of ancient mariners. Instilled with formidable powers to build, communicate, fight and heal, the stones draw the ruthless attention of villainous thieves hell bent on their acquisition by any means possible…including murder.

Aided by friend Pebbles McCarver and police detective Jennifer Stevens, Anlon follows traces of bewildering clues left by his uncle in a dangerous chase to unravel the stones’ secrets before the killer strikes again and escapes with the priceless artifacts.

Peppered with the thought provoking intrigue of a Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child thriller, Shadows of the Stone Benders leaves readers questioning the technological prowess of modern man and the belief that Neolithic humans were nothing more than unsophisticated cave dwellers.

Shadows of the Stone Benders (Anlon Cully Chronicles #1) by K. Patrick Donoghue is a thrilling novel that takes the reader on a wild adventure. It's a mysterious and suspense-filled read that is very satisfying. Stones are found that might change the history of mankind, they have powers of an advanced society that might have lived before the great flood and there are those people that have the stones and those that will do anything to get them. Wonderful plot and lots of surprises! Characters are awesome and well developed. Love the concept and it flows well. I can't wait for book 2! Dan Brown move over! I received this book from NetGalley and I am so glad I did! Great job!!!

Shadows of the Stone Benders is Fascinating Tale, that will keep the reader turning the pages. Alon and his sidekick Pebbles are settling Alon’s uncle’s estate after the uncle’s mysterious death. The mystery is all about the uncle’s collection of rocks. That’s it… just rocks. That’s the story, period… Mind you the rock collection dates back to before the earliest known existence of Man. These rocks provide a history, that isn’t known to the human race. In a way they are magical rocks that depending on who is in possession, can do good or evil in the world. Do you want to know the rest of the story? Then you must read Shadows of the Stone Benders…. Mr. Donoghue has a very flowing writing style that makes for an enjoyable read. The characters all play their part in the fantastic mystery. I couldn’t wait to get to the end and see what the final outcome would be. My only downer, is that Race for the Flash Stone isn’t published yet, so I have to wait for Mr. Donoghue’s next novel in the series….

This book gets a 4.5 star rating. This is the first book by K. Patrick Donoghue, so I wasn't sure what to expect. What I found was a wonderfully written thriller. It is hard to believe this is his first published book. This is Book One in a series and does end in a soft cliffhanger as the story will be continued in the next book. There is violence. I really enjoyed this book and had a hard time putting it down. Now I want to read more of his books and can't wait for the next one to be published. The book blurb adequately describes the storyline so I'm not going to repeat that info here. The author did a great job of explaining the history and science of these ancient stones as well as the civilization that created and used these devices. There is a lot of history between characters in the storyline that keep you guessing what twists and turns will be revealed next. It definitely kept me riveted. I received an ARC copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

A great and imaginative story bringing to light the possibility of a very advanced civilization on the Earth before the great flood, and using it for the basis of a thriller set in the present. The characters are well-developed and the relationships between them add to the interest of the story. I can't wait for the next book in this series. Donoghue is a great story-teller, The narrative provides good mental images without interfering with the action. It is an easy read, but most difficult to put down. I will want to read this again when the next book comes out.
