The Sign and the Seal: The Quest for the Lost Ark of the Covenant Audiobook

The Sign and the Seal: The Quest for the Lost Ark of the Covenant

Author: Graham Hancock Narrator: Steven Crossley Release Date: December 2018

The fate of the Lost Ark of the Covenant is one of the great historical mysteries of all time. To believers, the Ark is the legendary vessel holding the stone tablets of the Ten Commandments. The Bible contains hundreds of references to the Ark's power to level mountains, destroy armies, and lay waste to cities. The Ark itself, however, mysteriously disappears from recorded history sometime after the building of the Temple of Solomon. After ten years of searching through the dusty archives of Europe and the Middle East, as well as braving the real-life dangers of a bloody civil war in Ethiopia, Graham Hancock has succeeded where scores of others have failed. This intrepid journalist has tracked down the true story behind the myths and legends-revealing where the Ark is today, how it got there, and why it remains hidden. Part fascinating scholarship and part entertaining adventure yarn, tying together some of the most intriguing tales of all time-from the Knights Templar and Prester John to Parsival and the Holy Grail-this book will appeal to anyone fascinated by the revelation of hidden truths and the discovery of secret mysteries.

The Bloody Cup

Author: M.K. Hume Narrator: Steven Crossley Release Date: March 2014

From the author of The Merlin Prophecy, the historical trilogy that " appeals to those who thrill to Game of Thrones" ( Kirkus Reviews )-- the third installment in the epic, action-packed story of King Arthur. Celtic Britain is on the brink of collapse, and the kingdom' s bloodiest days are upon it. For many years, the people of Briton have enjoyed peace and prosperity under the reign of King Arthur. He has ruled with dignity, honor, and humility. Arthur is now weakening with age, however, and the seeds of discontent are being sown. Seeking to cleanse the land of Christian belief, dissenters need a symbol with which to legitimize their pagan claim and gather malcontents together into a cohesive weapon. They seize upon the ancient cup of Bishop Lucius of Glastonbury as a way of fragmenting Arthur' s hard-earned kingdom. Soon it emerges that the ultimate threat to Arthur' s rule lies far closer to home; he is betrayed by his own kin. Celt will slay Celt and the river will run with blood. Will all be lost, or can King Arthur conquer the mounting forces before it' s too late?

Not Always a Saint Audiobook

Not Always a Saint

Author: Mary Jo Putney Narrator: Steven Crossley Release Date: May 2015

After the death of his sweetheart when he was at university, Daniel Herbert buried his grief in medical studies and his passion for healing. Viewed as a saint by those who know him, in his own mind he never quite manages to live up to his own high standards. Most men would be thrilled to learn they've inherited a title and estate from a distant relative, but Daniel is appalled because the burden of wealth will interfere with his medical calling. Warily he accepts that he must enter society and seek a wife-a sensible woman who can oversee his properties, leaving him free to continue his work. He does not expect to become intoxicated by a woman called the Black Widow, who is as mysterious as she is shockingly beautiful Jessie Kelham's looks have always been a curse. Now alone with a young daughter and a perilous secret, she is in need of protection. But dangerously attractive Daniel Herbert is not the kind of husband she has in mind. If he recognizes her, the demons of her past will surely erupt. Yet they cannot keep apart-and soon they are drawn into a union that may bring joy-or shattering danger.
