My #5 favorite read of 2013
The Event Group is the most secret organization in the United States, comprised of the nation’s most brilliant individuals in the branches of science, philosophy, and the military.

This time, the Group faces an enemy of remarkable strength and power. In order to ensure that history’s errors never be repeated, the Group must team up with an unlikely ally to stop a deadly presence known only as the Destroyer of Worlds. Now, amid the desert wastelands of the American Southwest, the epic battle between two entities is about to begin….
An enthusiastic 4.5 Stars
Not since I read my first James Rollins novel have I liked a “new to me” author this much. This series looks to have all of the plot points I find exciting in an AA novel. Secret Government Agencies. Check. Tracking down ancient/paranormal/unexplained/other-world objects or artifacts. Check. Guns and Explosions. Check.
The only thing that kept me from giving this five stars was the cast of characters. I simply lost track of the characters. I found it difficult to remember who was who as there were many different people in the book.
Beside having a great plot, the was very well polished and well written. I don’t know how I had not heard of this series sooner but this certainly will not be the last one I read
