The first rule for survival when you’re a child soldier carrying an AK-47 is kill or be killed. But after you look at the blood of your first victim, you realize two things: one, you hate yourself. And two, there is no turning back. When Scott discovers a pouch of stones clasped in the bony fingers of a skeleton in an African cave, the magic of the ancients is released and he and his nemesis, Bruce, are whisked to Uganda. There they meet Charlie, a former child soldier who has escaped from Joseph Kony’s Lord’s Resistance Army. When Charlie is recaptured, the two teenagers set out on a daring rescue to save him and the children in a nearby village. Immersed in the insane evil of this rebel army, Scott and Bruce find themselves on a dangerous adventure beyond anything they could have ever imagined.

Profile Picture

This story follows the life of Scott, a fifteen-year-old archeologist who’s always loved going on expeditions with his father, Dr. Romo. On Scott and Dr. Romo’s most recent expedition, Scott unearths a bag of magic stones in the cave systems of Uganda, Africa. From the first moment he touches the stones, he’s certain that they’re unique – they give him visions of smoke and fires blazing across a countryside, of women and children screaming, of war and bloodshed before his very eyes.
