"The scenes in Alexandria are so descriptive and the year is 48 BC. In particular, the one with the ship entering the port with the oarsmen and the drum beating was powerful." -- Amazon Reviewer

Enter a novel dreamscape. You'll never be the same.
It is 2020 and oligarchs control science and religion.  A team of researchers from Silicon Valley are in Prague searching for dark energy. Exiled by a scientific and religious establishment dedicated to slowing innovation to a crawl, they work with graphene sensors and DMT to discover a new and more powerful source of unlimited energy.

The future collides with ancient Rome as the leader of the team, a controversial biologist, dreams of a past life in 48BC Alexandria. In his lucid dreams he falls in love with a priestess who serves Cleopatra and teaches him long lost secrets about ancient civilizations, the rise of monotheism and powerful interests who rewrote history and controlled the ancient world.

This is the first book in a series about the struggles between innovators and entrenched, powerful interests intent on protecting their empires. It is the second edition released July 2015 with edits/updates/corrections based on reviews pus two extra chapters.

"FIVE STARS: The Sword of Agrippa slices deeper than you might ever be able to imagine as it thrusts you into riveting mystical experiences."
