Q: Awakening

 
9781935142539: Q: Awakening

Prepare yourself for the most electrifying, entertaining and mind-expanding thriller of this or any other season from a compelling new voice in contemporary fiction....

Q: Awakening is the provocative tale of the lost Christian gospel called Q--for the German word "quelle" (the source)--and the brilliant but damaged scholar Declan Stewart, whose destiny is inextricably intertwined with it. From the stormy coasts of New Zealand to the deserts of the Sinai, from the cobbled streets of Zurich to the desolate mountains of Syria, Declan Stewart must locate the scattered clues to solve a 2,000-year-old puzzle in a race against hostile forces that would turn Q to their own dark ends.

Combining the unrelenting tension of an international thriller with the intellectual breadth of a spiritual hero's journey, Q: Awakening delves deeply into the human heart and the yearning of people from every age to find meaning and purpose in the enduring challenges and great questions of life.

From the Author:

"The idea of writing a philo-thriller based on the Q Gospel came to me as I wandered through one of the greatest collections of ancient manuscripts in the world, the nearly two thousand year old library of the Monastery of St. Catherine in the Sinai. But for a long time, Q was nothing more than a vague notion, a story I might someday write. Then one storm-tossed day, as I sat atop my surfboard off the western coast of New Zealand's South Island, the image of Declan Stewart, the man at the very center of the Q trilogy, arose in my imagination and kindled a fire. And so I returned to St. Catherine's and a Middle East in the the midst of revolution and turmoil, to finish my research and begin the book."
- G.M. Lawrence

From the Back Cover:

Praise for Q: Awakening

"...exciting, tightly written, and smart. Q: Awakening belongs on The New York Times Best Sellers list. The plot smacks of an Indiana Jones movie or a Dan Brown novel, but Q: Awakening is even smarter, edgier, and more credible. This is a delightful discovery...a thrilling and thoughtful read."

--ForeWord Clarion "Five Out of Five" Star Review

"G.M. Lawrence firmly stakes out his place as a master storyteller with Q: Awakening, a dark and treacherous journey to find an ancient relic that could change the course of mankind. Sometimes poetic, often gritty, always captivating, this international thriller is a skillfully crafted quest you won't soon forget."

--Joe Moore, international best-selling author of The Phoenix Apostles

"Q: Awakening is a new breed of thriller, capitvatingly lyrical, but still packing double-barrels of adrenaline."

--Sean Ellis, author Dark Tinity: Ascendant


"Q: Awakening reads like the work of a seasoned and artful master of the genre.  International in scope, intense in action and downright impressive in imagination. Don't be caught on the side-lines for this quest!"

--David Sakmyster, author of The Pharos Objective

Book Description Variance Publishing LLC, 2012. Hardback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. More than a decade ago, Dr. Declan Stewart, the worlds foremost authority on ancient manuscripts, vanished from an obscure asylum in Damascus. On a winters day shrouded in fog, hed simply risen from his bed, walked out the door and disappeared forever. And no one cared. The assassins had made sure that there would be no one left to care. For ten years, hed hidden himself away on the rugged western coast of New Zealands South Island, riding the towering waves of Ghost Ships break and trying to forget the past, to free himself from the haunting visions of a woman and unborn child swallowed by the sands amid a rain of shrapnel and fire. But neither the jagged cliffs of his distant sanctuary nor the great sea beyond could save Declan Stewart from his destiny. On a bright summers day, as the sun settled on the western horizon, a dying monk from a distant Syrian monastery appears on the high cliffs and calls his name. It was then that Declan knew. He would never be free of the past because he could never escape his own unyielding obsession with the quest for the manuscript the scholars called Q. Q Awakening is the provocative tale of the lost Christian gospel called Qfor the German word quelle, the sourceand the vulnerable, complex man whose destiny is inextricably intertwined with it. From the stormy coasts of New Zealand to the deserts of the Sinai, from the cobbled streets of Zurich to the soaring minarets of Beirut, Q Awakening combines the unrelenting tension of an international thriller with the intellectual breadth of a spiritual heros journey, while delving deeply into the human heart and the yearning that all men of every age have to find glowing embers of purpose and meaning amid the cold ashes of human existence.
