Captivating Debut Novel ‘The Orion Project’ Depicts the Drama that Unfolds when Modern Chicago and Ancient Egypt Collide

Fascinating takes on how an ancient Egyptian would estimate the modern world.

Ancient Egypt and present-day Chicago become intimately intertwined the moment that two Chicago Museum archeologists witness the reawakening of a man mummified 3,500 years ago by a unique process.

Tonemcadu, a wise man from the ancient time of the Pharaohs, awakens with a purpose. He has a crucial mission to accomplish, entrusted to him by his people's great leader. To do so, Tonemcadu must find his way back to the Great Pyramid despite the daunting roadblocks of the modern world that stand in his way.

Alone and without resources after a miscommunication with the two archeologists who befriended and sheltered him in their home, Tonemcadu embarks on a solo mission to Egypt. During his unique odyssey through time and space, Tonemcadu teaches as much as he learns, discovering along the way that the one constant presence throughout the centuries is love.
