Release Date: March 01, 2015
Can the past be changed without creating a paradox? Does history repeat itself or is that something we tell ourselves to cover our poor choices? When Alexander ‘Ramses’ Smith is assigned to decipher the odd hieroglyphs of the Temple of Khnum—all heka (magic) breaks loose. As a teen, his interest was in metaphysical and sharing psychic experiences with his beloved grandmother. However, when she died, things turned dark when a Ouija Board freed a terrifying entity. He thought he was free of it when he shut his psychic gifts down and began a study of Egyptology—but Shezmu was waiting for him in Esna. Lex (Alexander) found others trapped by the time loop: afret (djinni), the ghost of a former archeologist, Dr. Broderick S. Gillwood, the Neteru (Egyptian gods/goddesses), all conspiring against his scientific training and logical mind. Lex soon realizes there is no choice but to obey the voices in his head and rely on the intuitive gifts he fought so hard to quash. Realizing he can see and sense what others cannot, Lex runs headlong into a past life that puts him dangerously susceptible to the hidden secrets infused in the stone ruins. He must re-define his understanding of the lines between imagination and reality or lose the battle for his mind with the darkness created by blood sorcery and a destiny (shay) he never expected. As the logical mind is confronted by the truth of its past lives and learns the impossible—time entangled by events of unspeakable nature—gods and ghosts demand attention from a young archeologist to face up to the truth of who he is.
