Temple Fox has no time for cowardice. When his de Havilland Moth is struck by lightning he parachutes to the legendary isle of Makol where he fulfills an ancient prophecy. But is the young and frightened AngloAmerican really the god and prophet foretold in the Makolese most important prophecy scroll? The scroll warns against imposters. Temple has three months to find out who he really is before slave ships invade the island. Before then, a wise and sassy old Healer must form an alliance with her old adversary, Shaman Mefakani. Together with the Queen’s Interpreter, the three help bring Temple into his full power.

Book One from the Spiritual Fantasy series The Last Scroll written by Spiritual Counselor, Patricia S. Christy.




“Where had the old Temple Fox gone? Where was the young man who tried liquor swilling, plug spitting and imitating the swaggering talk of men, but never fooled anyone into thinking he was anything but milksop? No broad shoulders or muscled thighs, or even his practiced manly stride, ever fooled those who knew, because they had heard the stories, that Temple Fox was a coward, a momma's boy. So who was he now?”

Professional Reviews

The Education of Temple Fox

“As allies and enemies alike conspire with him and against him, Temple learns much about love, sacrifice, the intricacies of life, and the destinies of the souls that surround him. …The power of love and complexities of the universe are well-worn topics that authors everywhere are drawn to. Part of the appeal of The Education of Temple Fox is its straightforward message, shining out clearly amid the dynamics of the flawed characters and ever-shifting political alliances. It also helps to differentiate the overall plot from other action-adventure stories: this story is more contemplative, more moody, and cleverly subversive.”

“As a main character, Temple straddles the fence between being his own character and a blank slate on which the reader can insert oneself… His spiritual journey is engrossing…and many other characters are written with delightful complexity…They all reveal their true selves in time, and the way each of them deals with their decisions is very affecting.”

“It’s nice to keep this in mind—that these characters feel alive and true—because one of the book’s themes is that of destiny. Along with religion and faith, destiny plays a large part in everyone’s lives here: unborn souls choose to play certain roles and learn certain lessons at appropriate times when alive. It’s a heady notion to slip into any story, and Temple Fox takes care to explain it so that it becomes familiar to the reader.”

“Simultaneously exciting and contemplative, Temple Fox is a thought-provoking story that honors its characters. Christy’s imaginative scope is daunting, thrilling, and just plain fun. Rating: 4.5 animal shape-shifters out of 5.”

The Education of Temple Fox
“Probably the most ingeniously skillful and creative writer I have ever read…An amazing wordsmith…Very captivating, alluring, suspense filled and funny!”
~ Marisol Cervantes

The Education of Temple Fox
“Although this reader generally shies away from publications of a spiritual nature, I was pleasantly surprised by Patricia S. Christy’s first tome in the Last Scroll Trilogy. “The Education of Temple Fox” contains all the elements of a terrific adventure novel, comparing favorably with works by Douglas Preston, Lincoln Child and Clive Cussler. Populated with such memorable characters as mountainous Queen Palomei, High Shaman Mefakani and the gauguinesque Losha, Christy expertly weaves a sublime and fascinating plot, which I believe will appeal to a diverse audience. The pleasures of “Temple Fox” are not ephemeral, but like any good work of art, remain with the reader, encouraging thought and instilling wonder.”
~ J. Michael Modlin
