Beneath the endless sands of the Sahara lies a secret, one of epic proportions that, if uncovered, would shatter mankind’s current perceptions of all that is past and all that is possible. The Savion Sequence is the compelling account of one man’s unwitting path of discovery, a journey that takes troubled historian Brigham Elijah back through his own childhood experiences and the metaphysical secrets they contain. Returning to North Carolina upon the gruesome murder of his uncle and mentor, Savion Elijah, Brigham is challenged by the late professor’s bizarre death, the coded messages he left behind, and the powerful society of men vested with keeping an age-old secret - secret. This is a story of signs and symbols, of coveted knowledge and ancient truths, and of one man’s ultimate quest to uncover mankind’s hidden legacy.
