Product Description

Product Description

An action packed, fast-paced, mystery thriller, unlike anything you've ever read before!

All references to historical locations, religions, ancient writings, and the representation of current beliefs of local peoples from around the world described in this novel are true.

John Mitchell's life in the small Midwestern town of Mill City is changing forever. The animals in his lab are dying, he learns gut wrenching news about his wife, and the most important meeting of his career gets canceled when Dr. Frank Johnson mysteriously disappears.

After receiving a cryptic package from the missing doctor and accidentally injecting himself with its contents, a serum made from the instructions scribed onto a seven-thousand-year-old artifact, John discovers he has new powerful abilities, and new blood-chilling enemies. He and his wife Jenny are soon running for their lives, hunted by the terrifying figures that will stop at nothing to protect the serum's seven-thousand-year-old secret, and retrieve the artifact needed to finish their plans.

On the run and searching for answers, they are thrown into a world of ancient secrets, esoteric mysteries and a clandestine underground race, when they become trapped in a cavern that holds the shocking secret history of the Human Race, deep underneath the ancient ruins of Babylon.

As millions of people around the world suddenly begin disappearing, John and Jenny learn the horrific news of the inevitable extinction of the human race. But when John discovers the hideously evil, secret motivation of the ancient race that is supposed to be saving them, he must rely on his new-found abilities to rescue the woman he loves, Earth, and the billions of tortured souls locked deep within it.

Join the thousands of fans that have taken S.E. Meyer's thrilling, fact filled, roller-coaster ride, deep into the thought provoking, controversial, yet compelling world of what we think we know to be true.

Both books in the two part series are now available on Amazon!

I found this book riveting from the first page. The cover art is compelling. The characters are developed adequately throughout the book. The underlying historical and religious context is laid out well for the reader to grasp. The parallels between ancient religions and current religions I found especially fascinating even in a fictional context. Overall an exciting read and looking forward to the next novel!

From the moment I began reading Origins I was sucked in. The pacing of the plot and the believability of the characters that are present within them create an atmosphere within the novel which leave you craving for more. The amount of detail about ancient religions as well as the interweaving of facts from modern day religions also suggests the author has done a tremendous amount of background work in getting all the data. Did I mention he involves aliens in all of this? I highly recommend this book to those interested in Ancient Astronaut Theory as well as to anyone who is simply looking for a new and original story with fast paced action. I’m looking forward to the next part!

HASH(0xa4f278c4) out of 5 stars An interesting story of good vs evil, but .... April 22 2014
By Tholos - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Meyer has given us a fine tale that interweaves mythologies and religions and histories in ways that maintain interest. It is the story of good vs evil told and retold through the ages. He moves the story along at a steady pace, so boredom never sets in.

On the other hand, it is riddled with cringe-worthy moments -- dreadful stereotypes of Chicago southside blacks and southern rednecks. And it contains some of the most juvenile romance and sex that you'll encounter outside pubescent fantasies.

Those moments can be overlooked, as can the few grammatical/typographical errors. The story itself is good enough to carry one through these moments.

However, I truly despise books that end abruptly with a cliffhanger, incomplete. This book literally drops the reader. I understand the desire of authors to write multivolume series. But this book ends as though the author simply took the completed manuscript and decided to published half now and half later, the split occurring at a chapter end, mid-conversation.

The question then becomes, is the overall story compelling enough to tempt purchase of a second volume, after that bit of nastiness. I haven't yet decided. There are many books available by authors who respect their readers more than this.

By Adam Simmons - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Interesting concept, but leaves the story with a huge cliffhanger, which was what turned me off the most. Author couldn't decide on who to make the villain in the story, introduced characters in detail just for them to have no tral point in being in the story. I personally like to have a story follow the traditional guidelines of introduction, set up, rise, climax, then resolution. This author was too focused on trying to start a series than accomplishing a meaningful story. I enjoyed the main character and feel the true villains could have been really fun to read about, if the author had focused on that. Could be a fun series, but dont start reading this book unless you intend to read the whole series, otherwise it will leave you frustrated.

HASH(0xa45b61c8) out of 5 stars good read, poor editing Sept. 20 2013
By Richard A. Larraga - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I enjoyed this book very much. The plot moves at a good clip and Meyer interweaves Ancient Astronaut Theory and the Book of Revelations intricately. I gave this book only three stars because the Kindle edition was full of typos. In fact, practically every page had missing commas, apostrophes, capitalization, etc. A few sentences also had grammatical errors which distracted and detracted from my enjoyment of the book. I am, however, very much looking forward to the sequel, but pray that it is better edited.

Poorly written. Typos and grammatical mistakes throughout. I can't believe it was published. If this author intends to continue it would be good to invest in more education or hang it up.

HASH(0xa541b210) out of 5 stars Exasperatingly Inconsistent 49/100 May 8 2014
By Peter Bluth - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
A promising premise and a few entertaining plot developments meet occasionally flat writing and juvenile romance that borders on asinine. Such is the frustration of "Origins," which keeps wavering between something memorable and worthwhile and something that just made me want to roll my eyes. It's like a heady sci-fi adventure that keeps stumbling into routine YA passion and mystery. The only consistent element, really, is the frequency of typos (especially missing commas). There's just enough potential in the storytelling and concepts to make me believe that Meyer is capable of something quite accomplished, but even with the abrupt cliffhanger ending that closes out this story, I'm not eager for the next chapter of this particular tale.
