It all starts with a ring, inlaid with a seemingly insignificant black stone. Discovered on its own by the famous archaeologist Flinders Petrie, the stone had not been recognized for what it was, for up until the fall of Jerusalem in the 6th century BCE it had always been one of a pair. As a pair, these stones had been used for divination in Biblical times. Together they are known as the Urim and Thummim.
Determined to find the highly valued, lost stone and bring the separated pair together once again, a powerful secret order sends a team of intrepid researchers back in time to the era of the Egyptian Pharaoh Akhenaten, only to discover a much greater enigma.
“In The Eye of Ra, Jeanne D’Août cleverly uses fiction to bring alive ancient Egypt and its magic. A most entertaining and fun book to read!” – Robert Bauval, author of The Orion Mystery
THE EYE OF RA is available from the author’s website.
“The Eye of Ra is a brilliant new esoteric thriller that captivates the reader from the start. Intelligent, well-informed and absorbing, it propels you on a dangerous quest to Akhenaten’s Egypt. If you are a fan of Dan Brown or Umberto Eco, then strap yourself in for a wild ride through ancient lands, intrigue and Egyptian magic. I highly recommend it.” – Andrew Gough, presenter of historical documentaries and Editor-in-Chief of the Heretic Magazine
“A real page-turner, great plot, fast moving and a fun read!” – Tim Wallace-Murphy, Writer, TV Personality and Lecturer
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 of “White Lie” on eBook under the new title: “THE FORBIDDEN RELIC”. It was published on Amazon Kindle in March 2016. Also her second book, “THE EYE OF RA”, has now been published on Kindle (June 2016). The third book of her Time Travel Trilogy is now in the making; a book that will take the reader on another, even more ancient quest.
