Dust and Ashes

In 2095 AD, near Hierapolis in Turkey, an archaeologist is exploring an ancient Christian dig. He discovers a burial box hidden in a secret chamber.
What does the box contain?

The answer will cause a religious world war and take the planet Earth to the brink of Armageddon. The future of the human race will be changed forever.

Dust and Ashes, an apocalyptic thriller, is the prequel to the scifi—fantasy quest, the Prosperine Trilogy, featuring the space heroine Hickory Lace. The action takes place eighty-four years before the first book in the series, Avanaux, and deals with the cataclysmic events on the planet Earth leading to the formation of the Alien Corps.
