I am the co-author of the adventure novel, Secret of the Sands:
For 12,000 years a dark and deadly secret has been hidden deep below the Great Sphinx of Giza. In present day Egypt, two archaeologists discover mysterious artifacts belonging to an unknown civilization. A frightening and awe-inspiring story unravels as the archaeologists race against time to decipher the dangerous knowledge they hold…
Secret of the Sands is a little bit like mixing INDIANA JONES + THE MUMMY + NATIONAL TREASURE
Secret of the Sands has made numerous appearances as an Amazon.com BESTSELLER for the category "Books, Religion & Spirituality, Fiction", "Historical Fiction", and "Action Adventure"!
"A deep probing mystery riddled with prophecy and danger, Secret of the Sands uses Egypt and her mythology as a backdrop to delve into the meanings of life and religion." -McNally Robinson
"Rai Aren and Tavius E. have crafted a fast-paced, exciting novel overflowing with mystery and intrigue. The tension is constant. The characters fully developed. And the plot gripping. Ancient history and present day relevance are so expertly intertwined, that you might forget you are reading a work of fiction." -- Thomas Phillips, author of The Molech Prophecy
Secret of the Sands is available as an eBook on Mobipocket, OmniLit & as a Amazon.com kindle edition, courtesy of our publisher Bristlecone Pine Press/Maine Desk LLC
