On his deathbed, billionaire philanthropist Henry Calhoun entrusts a silver crucifix pendant to his dearly beloved great grandson, Adam, and entreats him to keep his possession of it a secret. For, he says, in the small chamber at the back of it rests the broken tip from one of the Holy Nails that pierced Christ’s flesh. The legacy soon becomes a nightmare bequest as mystery, murder and miracles ensue, with shadowy figures and thugs for hire crossing paths with Vatican emissaries and forbidden archaeological excavations. As his family implodes, Doctor Adam Calhoun fights not only for his own life, but that of those he loves. In this fast-paced psychological thriller, betrayal and jealousy turn allies into enemies as the true power of the pendant, and the iron relic it protects, portends a second coming.
In 1915, Henry Calhoun, fleeing the pains of a lost love, decides to join the 10th Irish Division. His desire to see action dissolves shortly after he is involved in the landing at Suvla Bay, in modern day Turkey. Soon he is losing friends at an alarming rate: not just from enemy attacks but from disease caused by living in the trenches. While raiding enemy territory, Calhoun is struck by a bullet and left for dead. When he awakens, he finds he has been taken in by friendly locals and that his near-fatal wounds have healed exceptionally fast. The accelerated healing is due to the locals’ use of an ancient artifact—one dating back nearly 2,000 years.Desperate to return to his division, Calhoun leaves the locals’ care, but not before taking a piece of the relic with him—a souvenir that will alter the course of his life, the outcome of the war, and perhaps even the fate of humanity.
Centering on Doctor Adam Calhoun, his possession of the iron relic and the miraculous yet dangerous world he has been thrust into because of it, The Iron Relic Book II: Revelations is the thrilling conclusion to The Iron Relic Book I: The Crossing. Follow Adam as he and Rose Powell travel to Ireland to fulfill the dying wish of his great-grandfather Henry Calhoun— to find the mysterious Alroy Byrne.
