House of Scarabs

Three strangers bound together by ancient Egyptian prophecy. Will they survive long enough to uncover what the gods have in store?


Ellie has been betrayed by everyone she's ever met. Still recovering from her ex-husband’s infidelity, she throws herself into building her language school. Not even her charismatic new student Ben can break through the defenses surrounding her heart. But a fateful trip to a bookstore specializing in ancient mythology will force the polar opposites to work together in a divine mission beyond their wildest imaginations… 

Gerhard strives to be a pillar of his tight-knit community. As the owner of a bookshop devoted to mythology, the widower hopes to share the treasures of antiquity with future generations. When Gerhard, Ben, and Ellie cross paths among the stacks of books, a primeval force bonds the three of them together. Confused and unprepared for a mythical quest, they're sent on a dangerous mission that will take them from pastoral England to the shifting dunes of Egypt… 

When an archaic order of assassins aims to stop them at any cost, Ellie, Ben, and Gerhard must quickly uncover their connection to the Egyptian gods. If they fail their mission, then their inexplicably connected lives may be lost in the sands of time… 

House of Scarabs is the first book in The House of Scarab action-thriller series. If you like quirky characters, tales of mysterious ancient powers, and fast-paced action in exotic locales, then you’ll love this novel!


Faced with the extinction of their faith, the high priest of Egypt must take steps to preserve the gods’ knowledge for the sake of the pharaoh’s immortality.



One vision rocks the foundations of the Egyptian belief system. The pharaoh’s seer knows that their civilisation will perish and their faith fall fallow. Horrified at the implication, she shares the news with the high priest of Egypt. Only together can they plant a seed that will allow the culture to return and flourish. Her vision is clear. They must select a group of men who will carry the power of the ancient gods in their DNA. They will form a secret organisation that will cross the plains and oceans to ensure that one day, the pharaohs can rise again and reclaim their rightful place as world leaders.


Nothing must stop them - not even the pharaoh.


The only problem is they have a spy in their midst who will stop at nothing to ensure they fail.
