It is said that when three powerful forces collide, the Heavens will be moved…

The day began as any other for Avery, the disillusioned and beautiful daughter of one of New York’s wealthiest and most powerful men, without even a hint that she was about to tumble into a bizarre and mysterious series of events which would forever change her destiny. 

Tired of New York City after a few weeks’ visit, and craving to return to the Wu Dang mountain monastery and his lifelong teacher Monk Wao, martial arts expert Aiden Kane is thrust into a situation that will test his incredible skills to the utmost … and his capacity for love. 

Using the dark power of a ten thousand year old spell, Master Zheng will stop at nothing to claim possession of what he desires – first the sacred stones, rumored to have been forged from the orange-red dust of a long past star, then the girl whose soul he craves to possess, and finally domination of the world’s oldest secret society which has now permeated so many world organizations.

Scorpion, book one of The Myriad Series just might be the incredible, action-packed YA novel I have been looking for… actually, it is, and I will tell you why!

Although Avery’s life may be perfect now, soon it will be in turmoil as when her mother sadly dies, a terrifying plot will unfold that will take her on a journey to discover who she is and what she must do. Avery will soon discover along her journey that no one is to be trusted, not even her father who is acting more strange of late. What happens next is a genuinely gripping, sometimes terrifying journey as Avery navigates around a ten-thousand-year-old curse, martial artists, mystics and a deep and sinister world and let me tell you now book lovers, it makes for a stunning piece of fiction!

The story of Scorpion is one that intrigued me from the description alone. I love stories which take me on an adventure, and Scorpion most certainly does this while keeping me entertained, shocked and captivated. The story is one that is original as well as creative, the vast scope of the world and the realms we encounter are phenomenal and will send readers minds into overdrive thanks to the compelling descriptions from the exceptional author, Cindy Stone.

Cindy Stone is soon becoming a new favorite author of mine thanks to this phenomenal book of hers. What struck me with Stone and her writing is that she is clearly passionate as well as dedicated to her work; in Stone’s words, I felt her dedication to entertaining her readers with a brilliant story that is unforgettable and these make the best authors in my opinion. It is the sad truth that some authors write primarily for financial gain and do not get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with this. However, Cindy strikes me as a woman who has a passion for words and for entertaining the reader. This made me invest in her story even more and why I think all of you lovely readers should too.

I’m thrilled you enjoyed the story Aimee and I hope your readers will love it to. The story was inspired by my magical martial arts teachers, a necklace with ancient stones I was given and my great great grandfather who I discovered went into the Himalayas with mystic masters in the 1800’s. I would love to hear from any readers!

Thank you for your lovely comment Cindy! Your book is incredible and I enjoyed every moment of it!
