LIVONIA, Mich. - Sept. 23, 2020 - PRLog -- The Sea of the Dead by Amy Kuivalainen opens at an archaeological dig in Qumran, the home of the Essenes and the legendary Dead Sea Scrolls. When an archaeologist finds a hidden wall in Cave 12, it's up to Penelope Bryne and the Magicians of Venice to decipher a hidden scroll's prophecy and curse.

"I love immersing myself in the study of ancient history and artifacts and this book is inspired by my own studies and research into the Dead Sea Scrolls, the Essene people, and Near Eastern ancient history," says author Amy Kuivalainen. "I'm also excited to give my readers the opportunity to learn more about all the characters they've met so far."

Penelope has accepted her role as the new Archivist for the magicians, but with war brewing with the priests of Thevetat and the tide of magic on the rise, she's going to have to learn her way around her new and dangerous world if she has any hope of outsmarting their enemies. To defeat Thevetat and his followers, they'll need to find a weapon capable of ending him for good, and as her old life collides with her new, Penelope will pay the ultimate price to keep the secrets of the magicians safe.

The bestselling series will appeal to a large fanbase, including fans of Indiana Jones, Robert Langdon, the TV series Dig and The Magicians.
