About the Book:
Nothing really dies if it's remembered, his wife had told him.

In the dying village of Al Tarfuk, lost among the war-stained dunes of eastern Libya, professor Norman Haas learns the location of the tomb that had been his wife’s life pursuit. The final resting place of Kiya, the lost queen of Akhenaten, whose history had been etched from the stone analogues of history for her heresies against the long absent pantheon of Egyptian gods.

He never expected to discover that the tomb was the final resting place to more than the dead. And as his team of researchers find themselves trapped inside the ancient tomb, Norman realizes all too soon that his wife was right—

Nothing really dies if it's remembered…

But some things are best forgotten.

Dan Franklin’s debut supernatural thriller is a tale of grief, of loneliness, and of an ageless, hungry fury that waits with ready tooth and claw beneath the sand.

"This neat little book, Franklin’s debut, is much fresher than its B-movie premise might suggest. Franklin is a horror writer to watch." - Publishers Weekly

"This ticks all the boxes for a creepy and adventurous archeological horror, but also with the touching vulnerability from losing the one you love." - Harpies in the Trees

"Eater of the Gods is an auspicious debut. The horror comes in twists and turns both large and small. It’s also true archaeological horror, providing moments that are more discovery than simple random tragedy. The very premise that the story is founded upon turns on its ear around the halfway mark. The end result is a story that screws up your evening in the best way possible." - Get On My Damned Level

"Franklin's slowly advancing sense of dread, claustrophobia and menace in "The Eater of the Gods" is calibrated with a bomb maker's precision, and the atmospheric descriptions are stunningly done." - The Day

The winner of several local awards for short stories and an occasional poem, Dan Franklin lives in Maryland with his extremely understanding wife, his cosmically radiant daughter, and a socially crippling obsession with things that creep. The Eater of Gods is his first published novel. He can be contacted at
