Secret societies penetrated literature

Fortunately or unfortunately, the mysterious group plays a behind-the-scenes game to change the course of human history. Maybe even a few groups – allies or eternal adversaries. Maybe in the very beginning such organizations were ordinary, or maybe they were unusual in something. It does not matter what they are, but most likely you have already met them in films, series, comics or novels.
