Grimpow had no idea who the dead man was, but hidden in his leather bag was a treasure that would change his life forever: ruby- and emerald-encrusted daggers, silver coins, jewels, and a letter with a golden seal depicting a snake swallowing its own tail. And clutched in the man's firm grip is a stone - a stone that will shape Grimpow's destiny. For when he holds it, strange things begin to happen. Visions of places he's never been to fill his mind, and he's able to read the strange language in the letter, a message meant for someone else entirely.

So begins Grimpow's journey with the stone, a centuries-long journey that has driven sane men crazy, turned peaceful men violent, and made strong men powerless. No man has ever unlocked its secrets. But no boy has ever tried.

    " Interesting throughout. Excellent story. Excellent reading. Excellent rendering of medieval millieu. Profound, mature, and meaningful ideas and values. For a youth fiction selection, this was surprisingly good, and certainly satisfying to an older audience. "

    " three stars at best, the fact that it is about the knights templar earns it two stars and one star for detail but asides from that there is not much else. "

    " um. this was maybe the epitome of a mediocre fantastical novel. it had a bad ending and didn't have a developed or original plot. it seemed like a young adult fantasy version of that dan brown novel. "
