Summary: (from publisher's page) Archaeologist Sheppard Smyth has staked his career as well as the memory of his deceased wife and partner on proving his widely-panned theory: Cleopatra VII, the last ruler of Ancient Egypt, was murdered.  When a statue of the doomed Queen is discovered in an Olmec excavation site, Smyth is drawn to Mexico to investigate and, hopefully, find the proof that has evaded him for so long.  Soon, he finds himself in the middle of the rivalry between the sexy, bewitching international thief, Victoria Kent, and commanding, ruthless Russian mobster, Dmitri Kronastia. 

Both Dmitri and Victoria hold pieces to the puzzle that will finally shed light on Cleopatra’s death.  As Shep is drawn further into their world of ancient gods, supernatural powers, and alternative history, little does he know that the fate of all—even humanity itself—may hinge on his ability to discover the truth among their fragmented claims. Working to decode the true past while attempting to save the future, Shep becomes a pawn in the hands of forces working out a quest older than the pyramids—a quest that may lead to the end of everything when it all comes together on 12.21.12.

What a powerhouse of a book. When a book can give you so many different elements and balance them all together, then it deserve high remarks. Killian created her own special world infused with mythology we know about today. You won't be reading about what you have probably heard about as far as end of the world prophecies. The characters are each very interesting and addicting to read about. Its just all around Compelling! 

You meet Shep and his story starts pretty sad, he looses his wife on a archeology trip on Egypt. That causes Shep to separate and you can say quit life. All Shep has ever wanted to prove is that Cleopatra was murdered and no one has has really taken interest in believing his theory. Then one day drunk Shep gets contacted by a old friend who has found a statue while digging in Mexico, but what can a statue of Cleopatra be doing in a Olmec excavation site. SO this of course peaks Shep curiosity and he sets off to Mexico. Well when he lands that is the last time everything seems normal to Shep, and he is now going to be involved in something much larger than finding a statue of Cleopatra in Mexico. Shep could never have imagine in a million years that he would be now in the middle of a long time battle between ancient gods and even super naturals not from our planet. You will want to read this book, it contains so much of everything. You get action, romance, mystery and conspiracy all in one book. I am now a big fan of Killian's writing and can't wait to read new material by her.
