This is a fantastic follow on from Edita A Petrick first book ‘Ribbons of Death’ which is a fabulous story and well worth a read. Like the first book this one is full of mystery and intrigue, and I really enjoy the background on how the Peacetaker, Amulets and Scrolls came about many years ago. Carter and Stella are also both great characters, and they are one of the many things that make this a wonderfully entertaining story. Carter was certainly doing it tuff stuck in hospital. It was great that he found a doctor that could fix his face at the Walter Reid Hospital, after it was damaged in the Cairo attack. He just wasn’t the sort of person that liked to lay around doing nothing. The ironic thing was that he made it through being a Special Forces operator as a Ranger, going to some very hostile and violent areas, and he didn’t once spend a day in hospital. Carter is then on alert when a man pretends to pass himself off as a specialist that he is meant to see as part of his psychological healing. Stella had eight-year-old Gabriel living with her, in the yellow house in the little town of Sunburst. Gabriel maybe the Peacetaker, but fortunately that is only activated if he comes into contact with an amulet. Otherwise he is just a normal kid, and this is the way Stella wants to keep it. Unfortunately she’s seen sitting in her house with Gabriel when it’s blown sky high, with such a force that no one would be able to survive something like that. Three men were also seen in the vicinity before the explosion. Initially Carter is devastated when he turns up to investigate the explosion. Red flags start popping up all over the place the more he looks into Gabriel and Stella’s stay in Sunburst. It seems that there have been men watching Gabriel, and others looking into Stella, and this has been going on for months. Moses maybe dead, but there are others out there that would do anything to get their hand on Gabriel. Stella was looking into the Harmony Scroll as there was meant to be an incarnation on it that would neutralise the Peacetaker’s curse. This is such an easy book to read, and I quite enjoy that I never really know what’s going to happen from one moment to the next. I’m definitely enjoying this series, and I would certainly recommend it as a very worthwhile read.

This book is about Stella Hunter’s adopted son, Gabriel, and the curse that he carries with him. Gabriel is known, by the few who possess this knowledge, as the Peacetaker. Stella has been doing thorough research in hopes that she can find a cure for this curse, but the only mention of hope is an ancient scroll that may contain the powers of reversal. Just one problem, no one has documented sight of this scroll it in hundreds of years. Time is running short on finding the scroll; if she can’t manage to do that, the whole world may be in danger. The full detailed review of this book can be read at Overall good read.

The Harmony Scroll by Edita A Petrik This is the second book in the Stella Hunter Mysteries and I read The Harmony Scroll first and then the first novel Ribbons of Death and I can say I was not disappointed in either book!! I was able to follow on from where the first book, Ribbons of Death, left off and The Harmony Scroll commences with Timothy J Carter recovering in a military hospital from where the story unfolds. Without giving too much of an excellent storyline away, the two heroes in the book are Timothy J Carter, who has a long standing military career and also with the CIA and FBI and Dr Stella Hunter who is an expert in paranormal studies. The story starts with Carter' recovering in hospital and doing his best to get discharged and when he does the action kicks in. Living in a small American town a fire occurs at Stella's house with the arsonist hoping to have 'taken care' of both Stella and her son Gabriel. Carter is not convinced and proceeds to take matters into his own hand to solve the matter. Stella's son is also under an ancient curse and is searching for a way to end this and she and Carter go on an epic journey to try and end the curse by searching for the Harmony Scroll, the location of which is unknown. The Harmony Scroll is believed to contain a mantra to free Gabriel from the curse. Their exploits are also being watched and dark forces enter their search and when they hopefully think their search is coming to an end the paranormal have been manipulative in Carter and Hunter's search. From here.............. read the book! If you are looking for a book which covers many genres, this is one not to be missed as it can be found under mystery, murder, crime, violence, paranormal, suspense, historical, thriller and the list goes on. An excellent novel which has an exciting story line throughout. The plots, characters, locations etc are very well described giving the reader a feeling of being there, and in parts reading quickly to turn the page to see what happens next. Edita's writing style is flowing, easy to read and continuous so that the reader is not having to back-track previous chapters of the book to refresh one's memory. It is good quality writing that enables the reader to leave the book and pick up without loosing one's place in the story. The story is well constructed and the whole book flows from beginning to end and keeps the reader's attention at all times. A great book that keeps you on the edge of your seat and is a definite must-read irrespective of whatever your favourite genre is.

A thrilling non-stop adventure! I love a great historical adventure and author Edita Petrick has a talent for putting together some fascinating historical facts with an original mystery in her "Stella Hunter" series. This latest book, "The Harmony Scroll" was a fantastic read and incorporated an element that I truly love in a great story - a normal kid placed into extraordinary circumstances. Garbriel is an 8-year old boy who has an ancient curse that not only threatens him, but the future of all mankind. Stella Hunter is called in to help eradicate it and this sets up a great adventure that involves a fast-paced race against time. This was a fantastic read and, while the second book in a series, is one that could easily stand alone. However, if you love a great adventure, you may wish to start with book 1 and experience these characters and their trials in order. Definitely recommend.

A mother will go to any lengths to protect her child. Even if it means going to the ends of the earth in order to do so. Stella Hunter is this mother. My heart ached for her and I rooted for her throughout this book while she sought the golden scroll that would lift the deadly curse on her son's head. However, Stella is not the only one who was searching for this scroll. Dr. Tanis DeVry is also in search of this scroll and will fight as well to gain it and it's power. Carter, Stella's ex-husband, actually made me fall in love with him. When Stella and Gabriel were lost, he sought high and low for them. All of these characters blended together and enhanced this story so much! It was very intense and enchanting with the history of the ancient scroll and it's power. I am wondering what the next chapter of this series may hold.

What if an ancient scroll had the ability to save the world? For Dr. Stella Hunter, an academic scholar, this reality leads her on a globetrotting adventure with her son Gabriel and her ex-husband, Carter, a former soldier that traces the world right beside her as her protector, searching for her even after she and her son are long thought to be dead. But this is where the plot thickens and starts to get juicy. Where he finds them is not ideal and actually saves their lives. Had they reached their destination, they may not have been treated as kindly. Yet, it’s not too long before the villains have sniffed out their trail. All are in search of the Harmony Scroll, a historic religious scroll that has the true name of the Almighty in a foggy mist. Yet, those who know its whereabouts aren’t giving out information. Stella and Carter get closer with everyone they talk to of its location, even facing their worst enemy—Dr. Tanis DeVry who refuses to stop until she uncovers it. Will she or will she not walk away with it? At the end of every chapter, readers are left hanging on the edge of their seats begging for more as they keep reading well into the early-morning hours. I will admit, this is a long book. Yet, you’re going to find yourself rooting for Stella to find the Harmony Scroll. At every turn she is fighting to stay committed to her goal. The author has done their research superbly for this novel. The dialogue, plot and action are realistic and true to form. It’s a must-read book. If you haven’t read any books by this author then I highly recommend this one. It’s going leave you wanting more; and you will never be disappointed!

I loved how intense this book was and how it really got me into the story. I enjoy reading books with a lot of action and suspense in them. From the beginning of the book, I was hooked. Stella Hunter has a son named Gabriel and he was adopted. She had no idea that he was cursed, but she wants to help save him from the curse. The curse shadows Gabriel through his life and Stella wants to do whatever she can to save him. She realizes that a scroll has the answer to save her son's life. She will do whatever she can to get her hands on it to help her son. I loved the relationship between mother and son in this book and connected to it. The writing style was also very interesting and adventurous. This is a book that is a must read.

This book is a real attention grabber that does not let go. It is packed with so much suspense and intrigue I could not stop reading it. The mystery of a sacred scroll, amulets, the peacemaker and the evil that could be unleashed is deep and kept me guessing. The unexpected events and surprises made my heart race more then once. The historical information is a great addition to the book and sent me on my own journey. Carter is a strong character with guts and a soft side, and Stella is spunky and will stop at nothing to save young Gabe from a powerful curse. The details are impeccable and made me feel like I was with them every step. The emotions are strong and real and the trust and loyalty of friendship is powerful. It is very well written and easy to read and impossible to put down. This is my first book from this author and she definitely has my attention. Edita Petrick is an amazing writer and I love her vast imagination and mindset. This book would make an awesome movie and I recommend it strongly for all lovers of mysteries and suspense novels. It is truly one of the best I have read.

The Harmony Skull is the second book in the Stella Hunter Mystery series. One thing that's nice about this book is the simple interactions between the characters, especially between family members.
