Evan has been having some very strange dreams.
The Perth-based architect dismissed an unexpected phone call from an entrepreneur in Greece, asking him to restore his family home, as the ravings of a crank. Until, that is, the dreams begin, each more vivid than the last. A dream encounter with a mysterious character called Zeus sees him catapulted back in time to 500 years before the birth of Christ.
Evan finds himself quickly embroiled in a plot to prevent the birth of Christianity, an unwilling player in an epic struggle between the old gods and the new, fighting for his life.

Evan Chronis is an architect suffering from a lack of sleep due to realistic dreams. Then one day, he receives a phone call at work that changes his life forever. Whisked away by Zeus, Evan is introduced to the Gods and learns that his life is not what it seems. Desperate to get back to normalcy, he must first perform a task in order to save the Gods. Evan travels through time and sets course on an adventure worthy of any Greek Hero, but will his life end before he can accept what is happening? This story is very different from Luciana Cavallaro’s other work. This book sets the course for a promising series that combines numerous myths into one epic journey. The beginning is a bit slow, but soon readers will be swept up in the fast-paced, ancient times of the Gods. Fans of mythology and adventure books will want to take note of this author. Notes: The author provided a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. This review was originally posted on the Ariesgrl Book Reviews website.
Search for the Golden Serpent by Luciana Cavallaro One day architect Evan Chronis goes into his back yard and finds himself back in time. Way back in time. He is not in the 21st century anymore he is in a time when the Gods ruled the earth. Soon he learns if he wants to go back home (to modern time), he must risk his life in search of treasured relics for the Gods. What he finds is much more than he expected. Will Evan find the relics and return home? Or will he be stuck in ancient times forever? A well written fascinating story. I really Liked Evan. I also liked the Gods incorporated into the story. I am a huge fan of mythology, so adding legendary Gods added so much pizzazz to this already compelling story. There is adventure, action, danger, drama, secrets revealed, everything that makes a great story. Learning more about Zeus and the other Gods added more excitement. I loved watching Evan on his mission, making friends, trying to fit into a different time. And of course the suspense and waiting to find out how it all turns out in the end. I strongly recommend Search for the Golden Serpent to those who love action/adventure/mythology/time-travel. A true five star read, I was hooked from the first page.....
