I want to thank Rai Aren for sending me Secret of the Sands to review.

Alexandra "Alex" and Mitch are both archaeologists.They have been on many dig sites but none of them have been as exciting as this latest dig at never the Great Sphinx at Giza in Egypt. Alex and Mitch discover a chest. Hidden inside of the chest are some cylinders. One of the cylinders contained a book filled with paintings and writing in as well as many other artifacts, dating as far back as 12,000 B.C. This is a great discovery for Alex and Mitch but there is just only small problem...these artifacts should even exist, so what does this mean? Strange things have started happening. Alex's dreams are filled with people, she doesn't know, living in another world. Alex and Mitch try to figure out how these artifacts came to be here as well as what Alex's dreams are trying to tell her. These are the types of questions Alex and Mitch will try to answer in Secret of the Sands.

Authors Rai Aren & Tavius E. both share a common love of ancient Egypt and archeology. It shows in their first novel Secret of the Sands. It is always a great thing when you can read a book where an author incorporates their interests into the story because than me as a reader senses this in the storyline and the characters, which in turn gets me really excited to read that book. Secret of the Sands mixes mystery, ancient Egypt, romance, and as well as paranormal elements to make a fascinating novel. I am sure authors Rai Aren & Tavius E.'s sequel Destiny of the Sands will be just as good if not better.
