The Shard of Asclepius
by Stewart F. Brennan

They are always watching. Always listening. Even when your phone is turned off, they’re still there with their ear pressed against your device’s invisible back door. They thrive in darkness and secrecy. They control the economy and bend authorities to their will, yet they remain faceless. They are the silent force tightening their grip around our crumbling society, and they will not stop until their power over the world is complete. Who is this most malevolent secret organization that holds the strings of power? They are known only as the Collective, and their invisible reign across the world seemed unstoppable. That is, until a soul‑searching Montrealer named David Collins followed his intuition to uncover a broken shard of advanced ancient technology with the power to change everything. As David continues to follow his intuition, he finds allies within the Order of Hermes, a secret organization dedicated to uncovering lost knowledge and bringing that knowledge to the world. Yet the Order of Hermes must also keep those secrets safe from the Collective, who would use such technology to consume the world in their greed. With the help of his allies, David begins to unlock the shard’s mysterious powers of healing and destruction, but in doing so, he also draws the eye and ire of the Collective. So begins a deadly chase across Quebec and New York State. With the Collective’s ruthless shadows constantly at David’s heels, will he be able to unlock the shard’s secrets and use its powers to cure the world of the insidious Collective before it’s too late?

Stewart F. Brennan has spent most of his life as a lean manufacturing specialist with a background in electrical engineering. As a lifelong critical thinker and analyst, he has always loved to study anything he could get his hands on, ranging from ancient history to current geopolitics and geoeconomics. In the past, he’s published three volumes of poetry, prose, and political commentary in his series, The Activist Poet. Now, he’s combined his wealth of experience within corporate operations and electronic development with his passion for ancient history and current events to write his action‑packed, supernatural‑thriller debut, The Shard of Asclepius.
