A journey of exploration and treasure hunting lead the Bracken family to find the truth of biblical ideals hidden within modern folklore in Brian L. Willis’ new religious thriller for teens entitled “Kirus” (published by Archway Publishing).

The action revolves around Elizabeth Bracken, a seventeen year old, homeschooled girl in Oscoda, Michigan, in search of her father Ryan. Her father disappears on a trip to research the origins of a strange black diamond. With the help of Damon Craig, her cousin from Sitka, Alaska, Liz sets out to rescue Ryan.

“Kirus” contains adventure, treasure, missing people, rescue, lost and cursed races, modern wonders, miracles, fear, acts of bravery, leaps of faith, budding romances, death, life, answers, questions and God’s role in all of it.

“Our world is in turmoil. We’re surrounded by influences of good and evil, and our lives our filled with trials. I believe any book that encourages faith and reliance on God is relevant in a day when God is commonly pushed aside and forgotten,” Willis says, adding “When readers finish ‘Kirus’ I hope they’re inspired to be better people and that their faith in God has increased.”

“Kirus” is available for purchase online at:
