Sphinx: the Ancient Gods are Awakening. Are We Ready? When a team of westerners discovers a mysterious code hidden deep within the fabric of the Great Pyramid, they unearth a secret that has been hidden for millennia. As they peel back the layers of an ancient puzzle, their actions trigger a series of inexplicable events that thrust their exploits under the glare of the media spotlight. With the eyes of this world and others watching on, powerful forces are awakened, the likes of which no one has witnessed before. Undeterred by the dangers that lay ahead, the team delves headlong into a quest that could unlock the origins of the human race… or potentially trigger the end of it.
