“The hands of time turn on the face of the sun. Only you can
move them. If the Watcher controls the hands of the clock he can go anywhere,
past or future-- and destroy our planet.”
 



Since the days of ancient
Greece, the Argos dynasty has
kept a secret, a mystery passed down through their descendants from generation
to generation, in the hopes that the forces of good can stop the evil
destruction of planet Earth.
 



Margaret Ingall is harboring that secret. Time
is running out for the descendants of the
Argos. They know a
great healer and time traveler will be born of their blood. But the only person
that knows whom they will call “the soul of the sun” is Margaret’s sister,
Abigail. Before she can reveal the healer’s identity, disaster strikes…
 



Evil stalks them, watching and waiting to find
out which member of her family has the ultimate power. Is it Margaret’s own
child? Or her beloved granddaughter? Or even herself? Their only clue is a
powerful protective amulet that will lead them all in a cat-and-mouse game to
discover secrets as ancient as time.
 



If the Watcher discovers the truth before they
do, all will be lost.
 



Fate, time and love weave together in their
struggle to fulfill their destiny. Will Margaret’s fears sabotage her family’s
protection? Can the healer accept her gifts in time? And once the soul of the
sun is finally revealed, will it be too late?
 



Her power is incredible. The sacrifices required
of her are immense.
 



Will it be enough to stop the Watcher?
 

Excerpt:

The rain fell in
sheets around me, it was gloomy and depressing, but I didn’t feel a drop. I was
completely encased in light; I was a moving, breathing, flaming yellow orb that
no one could penetrate. I watched in amazement as my broken leg instantly
healed and the torn pajama fabric cinched itself back together. My jaw pain
ceased. I closed my hands over the amulet, now humming with intensity. In a
split second, I was vibrating with the same power. The wind picked up and the
sky loomed black. The moon lay dark behind an inky sky and somehow strange
chanting words flowed out of me. Lava hot and fraught with meaning, they rose
to a fever pitch. Every word was a part of me, part of my being. Words from
another time, Tanga’s time, slipped from my lips as though it were my native
tongue. It was the inscription on the amulet, of that much I was sure.

I stretched my
glowing hands out to Thomas.

I call on you Lady Isis.

Protect Me.

For I am the one, the Soul of the Sun.

I plead with you and your son Horus to give
refuge.

Patroness of Nature and Magic bring all my
power and your power together to glorify
what is right and true in this world.

Honor your name and those we safeguard from
harm. Let time be taken from no man.

Amen.”

He was laughing at
me.

“You stupid little
twit, did you honestly think that would work? You think that I can’t take
what’s mine?”

As he spoke, I
chanted the same words, repeating them over and over. I saw fear cross his face
just for a moment when he realized I was using the amulet’s power. A brilliant
beam of light continued to radiate from my core. It was strange, the light now
shone gold instead of blue. It must have changed when it sealed together. I
continued to watch and to my astonishment, he became transparent and, with a
puff of smoke, evaporated into the heavens. I could hear his heart-rending
screams echoing through the ocean’s storm. Drained completely of energy, I
crumpled, exhausted, onto the sand.
