Archaeology Adventures That Defy History

How does a lost civilization keep its most precious and dangerous artifact from falling into the wrong hands? The relic’s guardians scatter clues to its hiding place across the entire planet. Three thousand years later, a secret society and a fanatical religious cult vie against one another in a global treasure hunt to claim the prize. The Arkana wants to preserve it for posterity. The Blessed Nephilim wants to exploit it to create a terrifying new world order. Only one faction can win. More importantly, only one can survive.

THE GRANITE KEY opens the door to unexpected mysteries for nineteen-year-old Cassie Forsythe. In a nightmare, the girl sees her sister attacked by a man in a cowboy hat who demands something called “the key.” Her nightmare mutates into reality when she is called to identify her sister’s body, murdered exactly as her dream foretold. Cassie dismisses her vision as a fluke until the night she catches the man in the cowboy hat ransacking her sister’s apartment. He bolts with an odd-looking stone cylinder–the Granite Key. From that moment, Cassie’s normal world evaporates.

She learns that her sister led a double life retrieving artifacts for a secret society called the Arkana whose leader now asks the girl to step into her sister’s shoes. Teamed with librarian Griffin and bodyguard Erik, Cassie is sent to the Minoan ruins of Crete to decipher the Granite Key’s code. Even as the trio rakes through megalithic tombs and Minoan palaces for clues, enemy operatives are closing in. Will Cassie and her allies solve the mystery in time or fall victim to the Nephilim’s ruthless assassin? Only the Granite Key can unlock the answers.



The Institution of Criticism

by Peter Uwe Hohendahl

German radicals of the 1960s announced the death of literature. For them, literature both past and present, as well as conventional discussions of literary issues, had lost its meaning. In The Institution of Criticism, Peter Uwe Hohendahl explores the implications of this crisis from a Marxist perspective and attempts to define the tasks and responsibilities of criticism in advanced capitalist societies. Hohendahl takes a close look at the social history of literary criticism in Germany since the eighteenth century. Drawing on the tradition of the Frankfurt School and on Jürgen Habermas’s concept of the public sphere, Hohendahl sheds light on some of the important political and social forces that shape literature and culture. The Institution of Criticism is made up of seven essays originally published in German and a long theoretical introduction written by the author with English-language readers in mind. This book conveys the rich possibilities of the German perspective for those who employ American and French critical techniques and for students of contemporary critical theory.
