The Stone Collector
Some things are not meant to be stolen. That is what Hexus Thorne, vicious hitman for the Mafia, realizes when he unsuspectingly takes possession of a powerful Stone with legendary powers. And yet- this is not the only Stone hiding among the ancient ruins of the Island of Meylach.
The question is- who is The Stone Collector?
Part murder mystery, part mythic fantasy, part conspiracy theory and part social satire. Eitan Olevsky's The Stone Collector is like a cross between Neil Gaiman, Umberto Eco, Jorge Luis Borges, and Paulo Coelho. This truly eccentric novel is built around the notion of seven stones that are as much a blessing as a curse. The characters in the book gain different magical powers but all power comes with a Price.
In telling an apparently fantastical tale about eastern and western alchemy, Atlantis, and the Mithraic Mysteries, it probes relentlessly at our human foibles - our insecurities, our vanities, our regrets, our desires.
