SPHINX: THE SECOND COMING delves into the powers of the Ancient Gods of Egypt, and conjures them into a thrilling science fiction adventure. The Sphinx waits. Methane bubbles beneath the ocean’s beds. Catastrophe is coming. A team of westerners is set to unlock a code found deep in the fabric of the Great Pyramid. The puzzle goes beyond time – for secrets of Ancient Egypt are alive beneath modern Cairo. The puzzle stretches into the universe, where the ruling powers on distant galaxies stay alert for the future of planet Earth. This is visionary storytelling of the highest order that takes you deep into the mysteries of Egypt, and the wildest reaches of the imagination.
‘Why write the novel?’ asks James. ‘Look where the old myth got us. Hell in a handbasket. The planet’s in peril and we keep on destroying it. The religions, frankly, have had nothing worthwhile to say on the issue. We need a new myth, a new story. How about digging up an Ancient religion that isn’t shy of taking revenge for all mankind has done? I love people. I love my characters. And I love making them live with the consequences of screwing up the planet. My novel delves into ancient history, roams the universe, melds science and the supernatural. I aim for a great read that might frighten you a little and let you see the world in a new way.’
