Book Description

An action packed, fast-paced, mystery thriller, unlike anything you've ever read before!

All references to historical locations, religions, ancient writings, and the representation of current beliefs of local peoples from around the world described in this novel are true.

John Mitchell's life in the small Midwestern town of Mill City is changing forever. The animals in his lab are dying, he learns gut wrenching news about his wife, and the most important meeting of his career gets canceled when Dr. Frank Johnson mysteriously disappears.

After receiving a cryptic package from the missing doctor and accidentally injecting himself with its contents, a serum made from the instructions scribed onto a seven-thousand-year-old artifact, John discovers he has new powerful abilities, and new blood-chilling enemies. He and his wife Jenny are soon running for their lives, hunted by the terrifying figures that will stop at nothing to protect the serum's seven-thousand-year-old secret, and retrieve the artifact needed to finish their plans.

On the run and searching for answers, they are thrown into a world of ancient secrets, esoteric mysteries and a clandestine underground race, when they become trapped in a cavern that holds the shocking secret history of the Human Race, deep underneath the ancient ruins of Babylon.

As millions of people around the world suddenly begin disappearing, John and Jenny learn the horrific news of the inevitable extinction of the human race. But when John discovers the hideously evil, secret motivation of the ancient race that is supposed to be saving them, he must rely on his new-found abilities to rescue the woman he loves, Earth, and the billions of tortured souls locked deep within it.

Join the thousands of fans that have taken S.E. Meyer's thrilling, fact filled, roller-coaster ride, deep into the thought provoking, controversial, yet compelling world of what we think we know to be true.

Both books in the two part series are now available on Amazon!

More About the Author

S. E. MEYER has been studying ancient civilizations and religions from around the world for over ten years. As a boy, Meyer grew up in the wilderness of northern Ontario Canada and spent his time learning how to hunt, fish, and survive in the north. He moved to the lovely state of Wisconsin at 18, where he has now spent his entire adult life.

Self employed, a part-time consultant for the Department Of Defense, and now living in the northwestern part of Wisconsin with his wife and two sons, Meyer still loves the outdoors and tries to spend as much time there as possible.

Gardening, campfires, traveling and fishing are some of his favorite things and Mr. Meyer also loves to entertain; either by playing the guitar, or through captivating stories on the page. Additional hobbies include reading non-fiction and fiction as well as spending hundreds of hours thoroughly researching the topics in his books.

3.0 out of 5 stars interesting story but some glaring mistakes 9 Jun. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is an imaginative story but the author knows nothing whatever about England. We have Police STATIONS, not precincts - and they have geographical names, not numbers. There is no such rank as a police "captain" and British police absolutely DO NOT wear guns. The story itself is entertaining and the characters are well-drawn, but it's hard to believe in the author's efforts at researching ancient history, if he can't even be bothered to find out that the UK has a totally different culture to America. Do your homework, Mr. Meyer!

4.0 out of 5 stars The epic journey 31 Mar. 2015
By Val
Format:Kindle Edition
Mythology and the ancients so often are viewed as apart from contemporary society. Authors have borrowed from them, reshaped them and repurposed them. The epic stories revisit these in their own format and style. Star wars for example was a contemporary restatement of the classical mythology of the Greeks and the Romans. The warrior’s journey is the essential story of most epic – ancient and contemporary. S.E. Meyer has opened the doors directly on both the epic and the mythology by placing them together and uses one to facilitate the other. Of the criticisms that are made of this work I can only direct those reviewers to Isaac Asimov’s Foundation Series. I’ve long been a fan of Asimov’s but it required an abscess and root canal for me to be able to wade through Asimov’s prose in that series. S.E. Meyer is fully engaged with the characters. They are important and their lives are relevant. Asimov’s characters in his epics were often throw away outlines that failed to register as an emotional event for the reader. S.E. Meyer is clearly taking on one of the most grueling of all literary task, the epic journey narrative. I applaud this.

1.0 out of 5 stars Dan Brown imitation 17 Feb. 2014
By Schmoof
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I very rarely give up on a book, but am forcing myself to read this. The storyline has possibilities with a better writer, but this is so amateurish it is painful to read. If I had a pound for every time I've rolled my eyes at the conflicting descriptions, poorly drawn characters and childish writing style, I'd be very very rich! If you like Dan Brown, avoid this book, it's a very poor imitation.

1.0 out of 5 stars Terrible 30 Mar. 2014
By John
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A complete lack of research. The author has probably never been to London. Police precinct ? London blocks? I found this irritating. Did no enjoy it.
