An inspirational, no-holds barred action thriller, the second in a series, combining adventure with mystique. ~ James, a former Army Ranger turned artist, loved the southern Appalachian mountains flowing with rivers and falls through deep forests filled with wildlife. He graduated with a BFA in Georgia, then met Katie in South Carolina and their lives became one.
After producing a sculpture for Clemson University, James readily accepted a commission to produce an enormous mural for a bank in Bangkok. Near the work's completion, the owner who was ecstatic, had James bring Katie and their son, Jesse, from America for the dedication. It was rumored that afterward James and his family had travelled to consider another commission, but were never seen again, seemingly to become yet another obscure incident buried in the mystical Orient. But...
An ancient warrior, Shechem, 2800 years earlier had founded the enclave, raising youth by practicing the ancient writings, developing in them pathways to resist the wicked. He never imagined his legacy would culminate in Jesse, who, not by choice, now stood on the brink of survival as his mother and sisters stared in anguish, striving to conceive how their champion could possibly wrest victory while entangled in the underbelly of corruption. At that moment, decades of enmity against the Rogue had brought a forceful intrusion from Black Pearl who watched and whose intent was to uphold the victor, and in so doing incited the darkest evil to exterminate them all.
The revelation of James and Katie and the heroism of their son 17 years after their disappearance is depicted in Shechem's Legacy, a sweeping epic embodying hidden histories of good and evil, victory and challenged faith, honored friendship, unalterable love, and undaunted courage. Extraordinary settings of towering peaks, steaming jungles, and the ancient underbelly of a modern city, provide the backdrops for Shechem's Legacy, a time... times... and a time to come.
