An Unexpected Journey
Brotherhood of the Wone tells the story of Lon, a quiet man who lives in a small town. Lon makes a living by being a handyman, as he is trained in mechanics and electronics. Lon is also an ambulance technician. For most of his life, he has lived quietly with his family and friends. Lon is compassionate but is also selective of people he interacts with.
One day, Lon’s quiet life is disturbed by a visit by Jean Conway. Jean Conway is the daughter of the town’s museum owner and a childhood acquaintance. Jean had found a strange piece of a Mayan priest’s robe from Belize. Jean, along with her husband Bill, are both well-connected in the field of archaeology. Yet Jean could not make sense or find any more details about the piece. Little did she know that what she holds is one of the greatest forces ever known, and had been dormant for many centuries.
“Jean studied that map and the hieroglyphics every night. Tonight, she connected some of the ancient warship rituals together to form a complete ritual. She was trying to tell us something but she was so excited, we couldn’t understand her at all. She finally said what was making it so hard was that this particular piece of cloth was not just Mayan. It was a hybrid of Mayan, Aztec, and Toltec. That combination was impossible to translate, according to all recorded facts about these three ancient civilizations. They lived at different times and had many differences concerning their religions. They also spoke different languages. But here it was, the combination of all three tribes in one all-important religious practice.” – Excerpt from The Brotherhood of the Wone by Len Stage
