Publisher's Summary

This standalone fantasy brings an ancient Egyptian mystery to life against a modern background, in a tale expertly crafted by a seasoned anthropologist.

Set against the glory and tragedy of ancient Roman Egypt, this novel brings to bring to life the greatest love story of all time.

Sixteen-year-old Hal Stevens is a budding historical scholar from a small town in Colorado. A virtual outcast at high school, he has only two friends: Roberto the Biker Witch and Cleo Mallawi. Cleo claims to be the reincarnation of Queen Cleopatra. She also believes she's being stalked by an ancient Egyptian demon, Ammut, the Devourer of the Dead.

But when Hal and Roberto find Cleo murdered in the forest near her home, it appears she may have been telling the truth. Her last request sends them journeying to Egypt with famed archaeologist Dr. James Moriarity, where it quickly becomes clear that Cleo has set them on the search of a lifetime: the search for the lost graves of Marc Antony and Cleopatra.

But they are not alone in their search. Cleo's murderers are watching their every move. And not all of them are human...

Ghosts and Demons

Hal and Roberto find more adventure than two young men who grew up in a small town in the Colorado Rockies could have ever imagined. All because Hal's girlfriend, Cleo Mallawi, got herself murdered and died in Hal's arms. Cleo, it seems, was the living reincarnation of Cleopatra of Ancient Egypt fame. In her final moments, she asked Hal to help her find her way to The Island of the Two Flames, the Egyption afterlife for its ancient rulers. Of course to do so, Hal and Roberto are destined to travel to Egypt where they are pursued and threatened by tomb raiders, corrupt archaeologists, ghosts, and ancient demons. We are treated to hair raising plot twists and close calls until the story reaches its natural conclusion...or does it? Kathleen O'Neal Gear spins this tale as only a knowledgeable master storyteller can.

Charlie Thurston does a remarkable job reading the young adult fantasy. His dedication to the story artfully portrays Kathleen's skillful prose. Charlie conveys each scene as the author intended while he brings each character to life. The listener finds him or herself caught up in every emotion felt by the story's inhabitants. This audible is marketed to young adults, but I think readers of all genres will find it fascinating, and perhaps, educational.

Enjoy every moment Chalie Thurston shares Kathleen O'Neal Year's Cries From The List Island with you!I

Cries from Lost Island


by Kathleen O'Neal Gear

the mystery of the human voice. hearing this book so close to reading it I found more in the story then I read on the page. its a remarkable tale.. I wish i could share the audio as much as I will share the print with my students.

Starting with the dedication,  no one is more deserving than to whom this book is dedicated. Knowing these authors as I do they are grateful to their fans. This particular one more than others because she finds value in their works beyond the normal reader. This book is a remarkable tribute to her bravery, her ability, and her adoration.
I have waited impatiently for four years for this book. First and foremost because it is a Young Adult book, I can purchase and leave to my students in all the schools I visit and teach. Second because it's history. A book that looks into Egypt with the eyes of the author that brings Native Americans to life. I knew she would make Egyptian history a remarkable weave I can follow.  Third Cleopatra is an enigmatic figure beautiful, mysterious and deadly, just like many of Kathleen's female characters. She makes heroes out of ordinary women and legends out of heroes. Hal has a remarkable future if the publisher see it the way this lowly fan does. Kathleen could go on through Egyptian history for 29 books like she did North Americans Forgotten Past. Hal could be the start of bring children to archaeology like Harry Potter brought children to magic. Lastly, I can not stop seeing the possibility of this positive message getting kind into history, and anthropology congratulations my humble beloved strong woman. Thank you Kathleen for taking me into the dust, sand, and stars of Egypt.
