There are secret underground compounds where highly specialized scientists, physicists and professors develop secret technology for unknown employers. In 2011, Professor William Fairfax succeeded in creating a stable wormhole, through which people could travel back in time. Unable to predict the miraculous events that were about to transpire, Dr. Danielle Parker and Dr. Gabby Standford excitedly travel back to the first century, where they discover the amazing story of Oshu, the real Jesus.
This incredible adventure back in time results in the terrifying abduction of time-traveler Danielle. For Danielle’s freedom, the kidnapper demands one of the most intriguing historical artifacts known to the world. To find it, the team has to follow the old trail of the Knights Templar that leads them to Cathar Country in southern France.
The team is accompanied by a mysterious German relic hunter, whom had already been brought from the 1930s to the present: SS-Obersturmführer Otto Rahn. Though Rahn is assigned to assist the team in southern France, he carries with him a heavy, dark secret. In constant fear of being forced to return to 1939, he decides to follow his own agenda.
THE FORBIDDEN RELIC is available from the author’s website.
“This story resonates with spirit and history, seamlessly blending myth with reality into a chilling and foreboding read.” – Steve Berry – New York Times bestselling author
“The Forbidden Relic reveals more shocking truths than any book since The Da Vinci Code, including the identity of the real Indiana Jones. It would not surprise if it was adapted for the big screen soon.” – Andrew Gough – Presenter of historical documentaries, Editor-in-Chief of The Heretic Magazine
“Congratulations on a fabulous read! I know Otto would have been proud.” – Richard Stanley – Screenwriter, Filmmaker
“The Forbidden Relic is a historical mystery novel, reminding us of Dan Brown and his The Da Vinci Code. But what makes the book special, is the original and fascinating mix of historical mystery, true treasure hunt and science-fiction themes, such as time travel. And a superbe blend of facts and (adventure) fiction.” – Patrick Bernauw – historical mystery writer
Jeanne D’Août is a writer, historical researcher, tour guide and producer. For 40 years she has been researching the hidden history of mankind and its religious and cultural path. Ever since she was a child, she has enjoyed discovering hidden mysteries, while visiting many countries including Italy, Greece, Cyprus, Turkey, Israel and Egypt. The biggest mystery, however, was discovered when she moved from the country of her birth (The Netherlands) to a region known as Occitania (southern France). As a tour guide she was able to explore the area and its many secrets to her heart’s content and in 2008 she decided to start writing a thriller book to share her findings.
In 2012, Jeanne featured in the now world famous documentary “Himmler and the Holy Grail”. She was also a guest on several radio shows. In 2013 she worked with filmmaker Frank LaLoggia to write a synopsis for a possible screenplay based on the story. In February 2013, Jeanne was one of the guests on a live TV talk show in Las Vegas. In 2014 she was interviewed by author and TV personality William Henry for his “Revelations” radio show while writing her second book, “The Eye of Ra”. In 2015, Jeanne was a guest on Intrepid Radio, Whitley Strieber’s “Dreamland” radio show and René Barnett’s Night Vision Radio Show.
After joining the ITW in June 2015, Jeanne decided to release the story on eBook under the title: “THE FORBIDDEN RELIC”. It is scheduled to be on Amazon on March 22nd, 2016.
