A power so secret, even its possessor had been unaware. A prophecy so ancient, the world had long forgotten it. Eli J. Peterson has infiltrated the Illuminati, one of the world's most secret and feared societies. Now they're becoming the ones to fear him-a threat that can't be tolerated. Aided by the wealthy St. Germain family, a descendant of the world's most famous Egyptologist, and a brilliant female archeologist, Peterson is poised to fulfill the destiny about which his mother had always spoken. Through museums and sites of long-ago castles, into the depths of Egypt, Peterson and his friends follow the prophecy encoded in his blood. What they discover could bring about a gift, an entire renaissance of humanity-or it might call to action an ancient Brotherhood more terrifying even than the Illuminati.
