When archaeologist Alyssa Moore’s father dies in the dark recesses of a mysterious structure he believed contained the cradle of life, the evidence to prove that the garden of Eden did indeed exist, she is determined to complete his quest and bring the truth the the world. Taken hostage by a billionaire with sinister motives, she is forced to share her findings and take a team of volatile soldiers into the depths of the Turkish desert.
There they not only encounter the most beautiful structures,statues and ancient carvings explaining the beginning of time, but something that stalks them. Something that has lived beneath the desert for thousands of years undisturbed, and very hungry.
With a story that has great pacing, amazing visuals and a mystery wrapped in time and religion, you really can’t go wrong with this one. Though I would have liked to have seen a better balance between character development and storyline, the meticulously crafted mystery more than makes up for that. There was not one second of this adrenaline rush that helped me put it down.
Can’t wait to crack open The Menagerie (Eden Saga #2), and continue with this fun thrill-ride of a series.
