Expect the worst. Hope for the best.
Three of the worlds top archaeologists are given offers they can’t refuse to drop everything they’re doing and join a new dig. A top secret dig.
The copper scrolls are mentioned but no firm facts are given. Not even at the kick-off meeting – where they meet the host and their security detail(?!?!?). In fact, the only thing the team is sure of is that they don’t trust each other and they can’t trust anyone else.
Can this team find what they’re looking for? Will it be artifacts? The God that is being questioned? The fiance who lost his faith? Or just more money than is imaginable?
Will they live long enough to see it?
Let me preface this by saying that I loved this book. Yet, I know it’s a book that not all will enjoy. Due to the very nature of the topic quite a lot of the first third of the book was devoted to setting. It was done in a fun and interesting way, but if you’re not interested you’re not going to love it. I loved it but could only process about a dozen pages at a time of that first third.
Throughout the book there were times that I couldn’t put the book down and others where I wanted to put it down but all in all, the hardest part for me? Reminding myself that it’s fiction…
This section is typical of the book after the history lesson 😉
Still unsure? Watch the trailer!
