Publisher's Summary

Ever since her great aunt left her alone in a cave when she was 10, Serena Mendez has been haunted by the traumatic incident. Now, she’s an unemployed, pill-popping 21-year-old suffering from nightmares and PTSD. When her psychiatrist suggests she visit her great aunt to get to the root cause of her ailment, she reluctantly agrees it’s time to confront the past.

Accompanied by her geeky friend Bryson, they travel to a Navajo Reservation to meet with her great aunt and return to the cave where it all began. But what she discovers points to an ancient conflict between the Illuminati and a Luminarian sect with origins to Atlantis, and she appears to be at the center of it all. With more questions than answers and only a handful of clues, Serena embarks on a mystical journey across six continents to learn more.

But sinister forces oppose her. Pursued by a powerful enemy, Serena must evade capture and fulfill her true destiny. Can she expose dark secrets and a hidden conspiracy? Or, will those who wish to remain in the shadows find her first?

An excellent journey

Serena Mendez is on a hunt for a treasure buried deep within her being, and it will take her to far flung places on a journey whose complexities rival the those within the best works of Dan Brown and Umberto Ecco. The truth might set us free, but it might also kill us in the process. The author of Serpent Rising, will take Serena and her friend, Bryson, through convolutions of Gnosticism, spirituality, and just plain esoterica that will keep you wanting to know what follows and how it will all end. If you’re like me and you like this genre of fiction, get ready to have your google search ready as every chapter will have you checking the internet to see where Acquista’s storytelling and truth merge and diverge. If you’ve always wondered about the “Veil” and what it’s hiding and why it must be hidden, you will love this novel. It promises a saga in the title and delivers on every page leading you along to an unexpected but strangely familiar climax --no spoiler alert follows! You will know the Truth, and the Truth will set you free. 5 Stars and few more that are hidden with the book. I can’t wait for Book Two!
