Summary

Identical twin brothers Thomas and Joshua are hell-bent to determine whether a Hopi prophecy about four sacred stones is true or not. It is prophesized that a sacred stone was hidden in the Far East and if reunited with the sacred stone in North America it will mark the arrival of the Second Messiah. It takes the brothers far away to Burma where Thomas discovers clues left behind by an early Protestant missionary from Pennsylvania.
After finding Louis Riels' personal journals through Riel's grandson, the twins use their knowledge of Native American religious beliefs to begin an odyssey on the train past Mandalay and the officer's club where George Orwell drank his oily gin beside the Allywaddy River in the 1920s, to the far reaches in north in Burma. A prophecy thousands of years old is protected by guardians of the sacred stone, but resourcefulness and timing lay with the Métis twins from Canada.
Factually accurate and well-researched, Prophecy Seekers takes the reader deep into old Native beliefs and connections to the Ten Lost Tribes of Israel, reaching as far as northern Burma and the Kachin tribe, said to be the source of the migration to the Americas centuries before. The Hopi Indians, holders of the ancient prophecies, were the focus of Remy McFlynn for many years when he studied under a medicine man in Canada. His knowledge and passion for Native culture shine through in the book and rubbed off on Trapp, who wrote the book while living in Hong Kong.
Based on an extraordinary journey to northern Burma, some scenes are so vivid that it transports the reader to different vistas, from George Orwell's officer's club to the encounter with the Colonel on the train and even the meeting with Louis Riel's grandson, novel has captured something special. But the most memorable aspect of the book is the ending, when the phoenix burns into ash. Seldom has a passage of such objectivity and clarity been recorded during a brush with death.
