"One of the best books of the year so far. Give a round of applause for James McPike who has
managed to impress me far more than some of the major authors I've read in the last few months. The Lost
Prophet was filled with action, mystery, exotic places and more that kept me on the edge of my seat until
three in the morning." -SammytheBookworm (IndieReader Discovery Award Judge)

REALM OF THE UNKNOWN back cover: After a crowd in Israel is inexplicably slain, a renowned investigator from the Ministry, Vince Ramsey, is called in to investigate. Some experts at the scene believe that only something supernatural could be responsible for such an atrocity. Ramsey ends up finding an ancient artifact that leads him to the Antiquities Authority, where he teams up with historical specialist April Fulton. Together they learn the artifact is linked to an ancient secret society founded by a famous Greek philosopher. Only it's much more sinister than they could have ever imagined. Being hunted down at every turn of their journey by ruthless assassins, they race to discover the truth, and ultimately encounter the diabolical villain controlling a powerful force only spoken about in the Book of Revelation.
*Southpaw Entertainment inquired about doing a movie/TV series adaptation based on this book*
My first book is a 700-page epic that started it all for me. It's about a disgruntled war veteran who takes a
dangerous journey of self-awakening to discover a long-lost biblical treasure.
It won a SILVER MEDAL from READERS' FAVORITE in the Christian/Fantasy genre.
The publisher also nominated it with 5% (50 of a 1,000) books for the prestigious 17th EVVY Awards.
