In the tradition of The Celestine Prophecy comes the first book in a gripping post-apocalyptic trilogy involving the search for ancient books whose secrets hold the key to humanity’s survival.
In 2027, a cataclysmic event known as the Great Disruption shook the world. An unexplained solar storm struck the earth, shifting it four degrees south on its axis. Everything went dark. Humanity was on the verge of despair. Then a man named Camden Ford, fleeing a band of marauders, went into the Ozark Forests where he discovered a set of ancient books called the Chronicles of Satraya.
Forty years later, the world is a different place. Thanks to the teachings of the Chronicles, hope has been restored, cities rebuilt, technology advanced. The books have also found a different owner: Logan Cutler, a young painter who mysteriously inherited them when Camden disappeared. But when Logan auctions off the books to pay his debts, they fall into the wrong hands. The Reges Hominum, a clandestine group that once ruled history from the shadows, is now launching a worldwide conspiracy to regain control. And the books are at the center of its plans.
When another original set of the books is stolen and several members of the council tasked with disseminating their philosophy are murdered, Logan realizes he’s made a terrible mistake. With the help of Special Agent Valerie Perrot and the wisdom of the Chronicles as his guide, he embarks on an epic quest to find the last set before it’s too late.
Combining new age philosophical allegories, the fast pace of race-against-time thrillers, and a historical mystery worthy of Dan Brown, Journey into the Flame will not only take you into the future, it will also take you deep into the greater mysteries of the self.
"An imaginative story filled with intrigue, suspense and deep wisdom, all set in a post-apocalyptic world where the stakes couldn’t be higher… Journey Into the Flame is a spiritual adventure of the first order."
“A futuristic Da Vinci Code mixed with bits of Brave New World and a big scoop of deep spiritual wisdom, Journey Into The Flame compounds all my favorite genres into one juicy read. This mystical thriller is thought-provoking and satisfying.”
“T.R. Williams’ novel Journey into the Flame is a thought-provoking evolution of the dystopian genre. Where others have simply used economic and ecological apocalypse as elaborate set dressing, Williams plunges into the deeper meaning and significance of a world that has literally come off its compass. The result is a bold and exciting odyssey that not only entertains, but also asks every reader to question the greater purpose of their own existence and the world around them. Journey into the Flame is a modern myth, and we'll all be better off for the message it may communicate to us about ourselves and the nexus of science and spirituality in which we live."
