Set in an alternate history where Cleopatra defeated Octavian and split the Roman Empire in half, sixteen hundred years later a matriarchal society thrives in a very different modern world.

The Infinite Empire Chronicles is a series of novels that I am writing to take readers on a magical adventure through ancient monuments and the competing interests of clandestine organizations vying for mastery of the lost power sources of magic scattered across the globe.

Think of it as Harry Potter meets Sydney Bristow (and if you don't get this reference go marathon the show Alias ASAP!)

I'm asking for your support in helping me create this world. I'll be publishing short stories, art and diagrams I've created to help me visualize story elements, featured fan art that you create, music samples of what the magic sounds like, and more. I'll post chapter previews and keep you updated as these novels progress from draft to published.

Help me turn this from a bunch of ideas swirling around in my head into reality and build a community of fans that want to explore this magical world.

Book 1: Tomb of the Last God

A source of limitless magical power - capable of saving or destroying the world - has been concealed within the Great Pyramid of Giza by an ancient cult, and only a new class of magical agents from the clandestine Section-7 can stop it from falling into the wrong hands.

Sixteen-hundred years after Cleopatra defeated the Roman Empire, the Free Nations of Alexandria are locked in a cold war with the Norsemen. Squads of magical agents scour the world for clues and artifacts that will give them the advantage they need to win this war. Section-7, the Free Nations’ secret magical division, has recruited more agents to help in this fight.

Four childhood friends are unexpectedly reunited as adults when they join Section-7 and are plunged into a magical world of spies and intrigue. Unsure of who they can trust, they must set aside old grievances and work together as mysteries unfold around them. They have barely begun to master the lost art of magic - a type of music that manipulates the fundamental vibrations of the universe - when they are thrust into their very first mission.

Petra, Alexander, and the twins Lydia and Sebastian battle through a hidden library of magical knowledge in Greece, only to discover that the key to unlocking the ancient power is trapped in an Egyptian temple once lost to the sea - a temple that is currently guarded by the Praesidium, a magical organization allied with the Norsemen that is somehow always one step ahead of Section-7. With too little training and time running out, the four friends struggle to stop the Praesidium from wielding the destructive power within the Pyramids of Giza.

Yes, it's quite the leap to Magus, but you'll be included as a character in one of the novels. We'll plan out your role, what you look and sound like, and a particularly cool magical move you'll pull off. You might be a good guy, or one of the villains, we'll just have to see.
