Rai Aren and Tavius E. have written a book that takes place in ancient ancient Egypt and present day Egypt near the Sphinx. A pair of young archaeology students, a young man and woman - Mitch and Alex are on a dig and suddenly discover a mysterious box, and with the help of two friends they open the box that is so old, it predates anything else known - the glyphs are in a different form, the metal not known in the current world.
The ancient era story details how this box and the information came to be and the backstory of the characters that will play through this amazing trilogy.
As I was reading Sands, I kept thinking of the pace is much like Raiders of the Lost Ark, because it is that good and that well paced.
The co-writing team of Rai Aren and Tavius E. have come up with movie material and what a movie it will make!
For those of us who are lovers of the ancient worlds, Egypt, present and past, archaeology, the metaphysical, and mystical happenings, this is a great choice for you.
The concept of the Pharom, which when I read it brought immediately to mind the ancient wonder of the world set in Alexandria was a clever idea and a great lead in to a continuation of the series, which one hopes the following volumne will carry forward.
The setting and action of the ancient era was much better written, almost like two different people wrote the two sections, so did the two of you divide up the story and each do your 'part'?Read more ›
Secret of the Sands takes us back 12,000 years to the origins of the artifact and the people who created it. Their story is interwoven with the lives of the archaeologists studying it in the present. Both sets of characters are so well-drawn that I could swear I heard them breathing!
This novel is packed with adventure and suspense, and the style is fast-paced and filled with vivid description.When I got to the end I thought "oh no!" I wanted more, more, more! But I'll have to wait for Destiny of the Sands to get it. Rai and Tavius, please hurry up with that sequel!

Either the translation into English or the scan from hard copy to E-book is sloppy because almost every page contains poor grammar or missed words which spoils the book. Read morePublished on March 28, 2014 by John
