The Brotherhood of the Wone
The Brotherhood of the Wone is a science fiction adventure written by Len Stage. It follows the story of a young man named Lon. Lon lives quietly in a small town with his family. Though cordial and compassionate, he only interacts with a select people in his community. He earns a living as a handyman. He is a skilled mechanic and knows a great deal about electronics. Lon also works as an ambulance technician.
Lon’s quiet life is disturbed by a visit from an old acquaintance, Jean Conway. Jean Conway’s father owns the town museum. Jean had stumbled upon a strange piece of a Mayan priest’s robe from Belize. Jean, along with her husband Bill, are both well-connected in the field of archaeology. Yet Jean could not make sense or find any more details about the piece. She invites Lon to go with her to Belize as part of the expedition team. Little did Lon knew that what his life is about to change and that together with Jean, he will encounter one of the greatest forces ever known, and had been dormant for many centuries.
“Jean knew quite a bit about the Mayans and their religious practices. She said that judging from all the secrecy, deception, and the lack of any other references, those there were very important tombs indeed. As near as she could tell, they were the tombs of their most powerful priests. The only one who would know the location of the tombs was the next priest to take power.”– Excerpt from The Brotherhood of the Wone by Len Stage
