From the Inside Flap
ANCIENT ARCHEOLOGY MEETS FUTURE SCIENCE Scientists have traditionally viewed themselves as advanced beings while those who came before are viewed as primitive, but new evidence across the globe is discovering the opposite. Nowhere has this been demonstrated more than in the discovery of ancient chambers beneath the Romanian Sphinx in the Bucegi Mountains and the Giza Plateau in Egypt where ancient technology has been found that is more modern than ancient. True science must not only refuse to be in denial of the obvious, it must reconcile itself with the fact that scientists live in an environment of censorship and secrecy. This bottleneck of secrecy is explained by Radu Cinamar who participated in a joint collaboration of secret Romanian and American forces in an unprecedented exploration of ancient artifacts beneath Giza that sets the new paradigm for the culture of Earth. In the background, Radu's team sets the stage for Peter Moon to meet Elinor, the mysterious alchemist whose ancestors have lived for hundreds of years by pursuing a secret tradition of the Great Work which prolongs life indefinitely until one can evolve beyond the physical plane.

I really loved the first book in this series: Transylvanian Sunrise and didn't mind the second one: Transylvanian Moonrise although it moved a bit off course is it were. I eagerly anticipated this book but felt it fell short, leaving me unsatisfied.
There are a lot of teasers with this book's summary: the "remarkable alchemical laboratory" in Elinor's estate, the "ancient artifacts that look more futuristic than they do ancient" and the "top secret laptop computer" are not discussed to the reader's complete satisfaction. In cases where something profound could be discussed, the author uses the convenient bypass of not being able to discuss the findings.
Throughout the book, I felt more discoveries were made in Sunrise (book one) than in this book which is supposed to be a more in depth account of the first tunnel. The findings, although interesting, are at times banal and perhaps even non-consequential. The treatment of said discoveries is a bit stereotypical in most cases.
Characters and dealings with those characters are almost always underdeveloped, leaving the reader with more questions than insights.
Like Book Two, this one goes off on various tangents. Not much if any discussion takes place about the ramifications of the discoveries therein or the political ramifications of the suppressed knowledge. Maybe it's just me but it seems like the device discussed in this book is interesting but just another way to access the information already presented by the device in book one.
Nothing is discussed about the other tunnels or why they might exist. There are many loose ends here and you are left wondering "why" more often than not.
I wish the book was edited in a more professional manner. The font size, spacing and type varies from chapter to chapter. It would take very minimal effort to standardize the font and spacing. More conjecture and theory is presented at the epilogue than is present in the entire book.
Overall, this book had great potential but comes off as reading a redacted document in a lot of areas. I still don't know the relevance of much of what I read or how it resolves the various mysteries presented by the profound discoveries. I'm left unsatisfied and with no means to ever know more.
