Publisher's Summary

A forgotten family legacy. Six crystal keys. One shot at unlocking the secrets beneath the Sphinx.

Anne Le Clair, a successful young attorney, has managed to remain free from her family’s gothic past - until now. When she inherits her murdered aunt’s antique necklace, however, she finds no escape from its secrets. 

Under the Stone Paw is a thrill ride from the upper crust of New York society to the forbidden tunnels underneath the Sphinx, from a time before Jesus and Mary Magdalene sought to free humanity to our own time when a shadowy consortium of powerful individuals threaten to control it.

A little mystery

Although this is categorized as visionary fiction there are mystical, historical, and mysterious undertones. It's a great plot and has a fun take on some of the same conspiracies as the Da Vinci code

Too long

This story should have been condensed taking out much of the explanations & more action.

Fascinating Listen

Under the Stone Paw by Theresa Crater really pulled me in. I have always been fascinated by ancient Egypt with the pyramids, Sphinx , and temples. Then add in the mystery of Atlantis, and I was sold. The author does a fantastic job of melding fact, fiction, imagination, speculation, legend and myth into one tale. I loved how the author wrote this totally original book with its vivid imagery and historical details into one contemporary story. The character of Anne LeClair also appealed to me, and I enjoyed her journey. The narration by Tim Toddhurst was great in the aspect that he gave the numerous characters distinguished voices and brought them to life. I felt his pace was a little slow until I sped up my listening device. I requested this review copy audiobook and have voluntarily written this review. I would definitely listen to more books by this author and narrator.

Decent read, disappointing narration

My first read from author Theresa Crater. I wanted to read this book. I looked forward to reading this book. Then I listened to the book. So much promise but disappointing. Reminiscent of James Rollins, Steve Berry & Dan Brown, but lacking and the flatness of the narration left it wanting more. The premise was so0 good so I'll give the author another chance but it won't be in an audiobook by this narrator.

A Great Adventure!

I love it when authors write about what is truly happening in the world today and makes it entertaining. There are so many things in this book which are fact mixed with some fantasy to make one heck of a listen. I enjoyed listening to the story and found myself unable to stop until the end. If you enjoy hearing about the real world with a bit of fantasy/sci-fi mixed in then you'll enjoy this book. The author really has her finger on the pulse point of the scientific world as well as many other theories being proven today. The narration was well done. Each character had their own voice and emotions. Overall, a great adventure just waiting for you to pick up and hear it.

I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

An action story created around fact and fiction!

This book merged several loosely related topics regarding Templars, Egyptology, alternative history, and Edgar Casey’s predictions in an action-packed adventure related to finding the Hall of Records. Theresa Crater has done a very good job presenting an entertaining story that may very well contain more truth than most people would wish to hear or consider. Overall the Audible version of this book was very good, but the pace of the narration seemed to lag for me.
