Infinity In Death
Vienna, 1908
Gabriele Ziegler is a young art student who becomes infatuated with

charismatic archeologist Dr. Emeryk Quintillus. Only too late does

she realize his true designs on her. He is obsessed with resurrecting

Cleopatra and has retained the famed artist Gustav Klimt to render

Gabriele as the Queen of the Nile, using ashes from Cleopatra’s

mummy mixed with the paint. The result is a lifelike portrait

emitting an aura of unholy evil . . .

Vienna, 2018
The Mortimer family has moved into Quintillus’s former home, Villa

Dürnstein. In its basement they find an original Klimt masterpiece—a

portrait of Cleopatra art scholars never knew existed. But that’s

not all that resides within the villa’s vault. Nine-year-old Heidi

Mortimer tells her parents that a strange man lives there.

Quintillus’s desire to be with Cleopatra transcends death. His spirit will not

rest until he has brought her back from the netherworld. Even if he

has to sacrifice the soul of a child . . .

Waking the Ancients
Nemesis of the Gods #2
Egypt, 1908
University student Lizzie Charters accompanies her mentor, Dr. Emeryk

Quintillus, on the archeological dig to uncover Cleopatra’s tomb.

Her presence is required for a ceremony conducted by the renowned

professor to resurrect Cleopatra’s spirit—inside Lizzie’s body.

Quintillus’s success is short-lived, as the Queen of the Nile dies

soon after inhabiting her host, leaving Lizzie’s soul adrift . . .

Vienna, 2018
Paula Bancroft’s husband just leased Villa Dürnstein, an estate once

owned by Dr. Quintillus. Within the mansion are several paintings and

numerous volumes dedicated to Cleopatra. But the archeologist’s

interest in the Egyptian empress deviated from scholarly into

supernatural, infusing the very foundations of his home with his dark

fanaticism. And as inexplicable manifestations rattle Paula’s

senses, threatening her very sanity, she uncovers the link between

the villa, Quintillus, and a woman named Lizzie Charters.

And a ritual of dark magic that will consume her soul . . .
Wrath of the Ancients
Nemesis of the Gods #1
DESTINY IN DEATH

Egypt, 1908

Eminent archeologist Dr. Emeryk Quintillus has unearthed the burial chamber

of Cleopatra. But this tomb raider’s obsession with the Queen of

the Nile has nothing to do with preserving history. Stealing sacred

and priceless relics, he murders his expedition crew, and

flees—escaping the quake that swallows the site beneath the desert

sands . . .

Vienna, 1913

Young widow Adeline Ogilvy has accepted employment at the mansion of Dr.

Quintillus, transcribing the late professor’s memoirs. Within the

pages of his journals, she discovers the ravings of a madman

convinced he possessed the ability to reincarnate Cleopatra. Within

the walls of his home, she is assailed by unexplained phenomena:

strange sounds, shadowy figures, and apparitions of

hieroglyphics.

Something pursued Dr. Quintillus from Egypt. Something dark, something hungry.

Something tied to the fate and future of Adeline Ogilvy . . .
