    One thought on “Rite of Passage”

    1. Pretty average hunt up the pieces to save the world mish mash of occult thriller and adventure story.

This takes some inspiration from Graham Hancock and his ilk and you have to suspend a fair amount of disbelief to get through some of the theories.I would like to see a story from the point of view of Sir E Osborne Hunsdon.

In every single dialogue, character 1 would say character 2's name in each sentence & [...]
