Grimes survives falling overboard to find the legendary Library
on a remote island that is shrouded in mystery. It is a
wondrous place that
holds the collective knowledge of the ages. But his pursuit of its
secrets exposes him
to unimaginable dangers.
He unfurled one of the scrolls and
looked at the writing, which he assumed was Greek. Also inside the
container was a small sack, made from skin. Inside the sack were a
series of colored, jewel-like pieces. Each was approximately two inches
in diameter, measuring a quarter-inch in thickness. Grimes marveled at
their appearance and wondered whether they were precious stones, but
there was something peculiar about them, which he could not quite put
into words. He held each up to the light of his torch and the flame
danced with an almost hypnotic effect.
“Place the blue stone on your right temple,” the figure said in answer
to his unspoken question.
As it touched the front of his head, Grimes’ mind was instantly
consumed by sights and sounds hereto unknown to him. It was as though a
voice invaded his mind and imparted an astounding amount of knowledge.
In what seemed to be but a few minutes, he was reading the Greek
language fluently, as if it was his mother tongue.
