The Crypts of Eden is an archaeological adventure thriller. This is the first book in a new series, The Eden Saga, by Rick Jones. I’m looking forward to more in this series.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
How much have you thought about Eden? Have you wondered where it is, if it even exists? Archaeologists have found a temple they believe to be 14,000 years old. They also believe it is in the spot where Eden was said to be. A team goes to investigate and only one person makes it out alive. Alyssa Moore is going to take another team into the temple. She has to. Her father was the leader of the first team and died trying to prove his theory. She is determined to fulfill her father’s dream of finding Eden.
When news of the find reaches the world it draws the interest of the Vatican. The Pope has secrets to hide and one of the secrets has to do with this temple. He has a tough decision to make. The news also reaches the ears of one Obsidian Hall (yes, really), the man secretly funding the dig. He is a rich man with a great interest in archaeological items of value. He lives on a huge yacht where he keeps his collection. Hiring some mercenaries he insinuates himself and his mercs into the 2nd team.
The temple is a marvelous wonder of precise measurements and geometric shapes, and etchings on all the well buffed walls. But there are also hidden dangers, puzzles to solve and something in the dark hunting them.
I enjoyed this story. It moves along and quickly captures the interest of the reader. The puzzles are presented in such a way that the reader has the opportunity to try to figure out the answers before our intrepid explorers give us the answer. I actually believe I identified with the Vatican representative which is kind of weird because I’ve in no way had the experiences he has had. I recommend this book to those who like adventure, thrills, and archaeology.
