"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
"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
"A real page-turner, great plot, fast moving and a fun read!" - Tim Wallace-Murphy, Writer, TV Personality and Lecturer
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 recognised 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.
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, resulting in her first book, "White Lie" (The Forbidden Relic). In 2012, Jeanne featured in the documentary "Himmler and the Holy Grail", which was broadcast around the world and she was a guest on several radio shows. In 2013 she worked with filmmaker Frank LaLoggia to write a synopsis for a possible screenplay based on "White Lie". Also in that year, 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 March 2015 she was also a guest on Intrepid Radio, talking about both her books. In the Spring of 2015, Jeanne was interviewed by William Henry for Whitley Strieber's "Dreamland" radio show, which was aired on March 20th, 2015, and René Barnett's Night Vision Radio Show, which was aired on March 26th, 2015. In her second book, "The Eye of Ra", Jeanne takes her readers to ancient Egypt, on a quest to find an ancient relic from the time of Moses and Aaron. Again, adventure mixes with mysticism and hidden knowledge while exploring Egyptian Magic and the ancient Egyptian Mystery School teachings. "The Eye of Ra" was published in February 2015. After joining the ITW (International Thriller Writers Organization) in June 2015, Jeanne started writing the 3rd book of her Time Travel Trilogy, which is scheduled to be released in the Fall of 2019. Though all 3 books can be read separately in any order, this new adventure will take the reader on an even deeper journey to a more ancient time. "White Lie" has been released on eBook under a new title: "The Forbidden Relic", in March 2016. Shortly after, also "The Eye of Ra" was released on eBook.
