This book was just as good as the first in the series. Takes a look at stories from the Bible and gives them true meaning from an archeological standpoint.

How far in the name of science will a man go to pursue and further prove his hypotheses? And how much truth lies in the myths passed down through the ages? Will we find the truth through archaeological digs? Not only will this story grip your mind, it will have you pondering these very questions. Kathlyn Trent is a wonderful role model. A strong woman in the face of with adversity. When she loves, she loves with all her heart. She also has a very powerful belief in God, a bit of a seer to the past, intelligent, and driven to discover the unusual and unknown. Her studies are Biblical Mythology. When science, her logical reasoning, her curiosity to discover the unknown and her knowledge of what the Bible relates in Genesis and Revelations, converge, she must make decisions which could change her life forever. Her strengths are what also makes her most vulnerable.Marcus Burton, his studies in Egyptology and Kathlyn’s husband, sees his archeology in strictly a methodical, scientific way. So he often balances the scales where Kathyln is concerned. She is rather impulsive and will endanger herself for a scientific find. Since meeting Kathlyn his ideas have changed, somewhat, since his studies are grounded on what is seen and scientifically proved. Kathlyn’s studies deal with interpretation of myths, past from generation to generation dating as far as back as before the flood and Noah’s ark. Marcus believes in his wife, would like to give her the independence she craves to pursue her research. He can’t quite let go. This stubborn trait of his, will either kill or save them all.These two make a powerful story, full of adventure, danger, suspense and excitement. The author takes her readers into the contemporary world where the past literally touches the present. The research teams deal with local villagers in Iraq who are scared to death and decide they need outside help. Word of the villagers’s findings leaks to other Biblical Mythology experts who don’t have as many scruples as Kathlyn’s team. The Vatican also becomes involved.I hadn’t heard narrator Leslie Wadsworth’s work before, and I was pleasantly surprised by the way she carried the story, the range of emotion she expressed (extremely believable), particularly the quick-temper and explosive arguments between Marcus and Kathlyn. I enjoyed the special effects used through the story, only adding more realism to the uncanniness the author spooks us with.The support cast adds a lot to the story. I, particularly like Dennis, a brash, in-your-face kind of man, who isn’t afraid to say exactly what he’s thinking. I like the friendship Julianna has with Kathryn. They share a secret which comes to light. Will it hurt her chances with Lynn?The author keeps the reader hanging, questions left unanswered until the end of the story. I always expected the worse. Much like the story itself, even though the world ‘rights’ itself, a lingering question mark still remains. Again, Kathryn Le Veque entertains with a unique situation, and a thought-provoking powerful message.
