Finding Ethiopia by G. J. Phoenix
TWO BOOKS IN ONE!!
A Special Combined Edition of Parts 1 & 2 of The Ethiopian Chronicles
SEAT OF GOD
A child marked by God’s hand …
A woman willing to risk her life to save what’s left of her family ...
A priest obsessed with an ancient prophecy ...
A man forced to face his past ...
Four people on a collision course with an earth-shattering destiny.
An Ethiopian priest, believing a little girl is the key to a biblical curse, kidnaps her. The girl’s only surviving relative, Jasmine Rose, turns to former CIA operative—code name “the Hunter”—to help her find the child. The two must decipher a series of clues as they search from Israel to Egypt to Ethiopia to catch a holy man who always manages to stay one step ahead. What Jasmine doesn’t know is that the Hunter’s former boss is intent on having his revenge.
As the chase escalates, Jasmine finds herself becoming both hunter and prey. She is willing to pay anything, do anything, to secure the child. But will the child’s mystical abilities save the world—or destroy them all? Jasmine must face the ultimate questions: Will finding the girl be a blessing or a curse? And what will she sacrifice to save the child?
JOURNEY OF JOSEPHUS
For one man, the future is now.
The Prester family has been waiting for centuries for the prophecy to manifest. Josephus swore to his grandfather the day the old man died that he would be the one to deliver the Marked Child. For thirty years, he watched his Ethiopia be crushed by famine, disease, and religious conflict. The time for action has come. Breaking one vow to deliver on a greater one, he assembles the brothers who have the unwavering faith and knowledge of what will be necessary to seek out the reincarnated guardians, those who once shepherded this land to supremacy. It is time for them to remember their heritage and to reclaim their future. The guardians are the way.
It is a race against time to find the children who hold the key to saving the future before the darkness overtakes them all. Will they succeed? Or will the covenant, the first promise, made to an ancient people remain unfulfilled?
As a child, I got to ride the lightening and a dreamer was born. I stood on the top of the world, and traveled to the lowest point that can support life. I got to swim with dolphins and sharks, some of which were on dry land. I didn’t shoot the Sheriff but I definitely knifed the deputy-he looked at me funny.
My life has taken me to many exotic places, and I was honored to meet some truly amazing people. I learned about God and religion through the stories people were kind enough to share with me, and the books I read.
The truth is, in one way or another, most of my books are based on real people, facing hellish problems, involving intriguing legends or myths, and finding solutions through the power of hope. I have read many great writers in my life, and, it is my hope, they look upon my work with favor-or at least no shame.
I’m G.J. Nice to meet you. Please spend some time and get to know me as well as my family-the characters in my books. You can always find me at gjphoenix.com or on social media.
