Overview

An amazing discovery found in a lost and ancient artifact during a secret 1968 Smithsonian, National Geographic joint expedition has the ability to change everything the world has been told about our origin. The entity is removed and shipped to Washington, D.C.

Decades later a group of modern explorers uncover the artifact. They find a set of ancient scrolls hidden inside and discover they're not the first to visit the five-thousand year old Monolithic structure. Someone had been there before and has taken an important and mysterious antiquity.

Meanwhile, Kait Zorn is headed to the site to be the exclusive photojournalist at the biggest discovery in modern history. While she photographs and documents the find, forces in the scientific community who protect the secret of the entity, destroy the artifact with a missile strike. Kait barely escapes with her life, taking the ancient scrolls and her photos with her.

In Jerusalem, with the help of her rag-tag scientific team, the scrolls are deciphered and the implications of what was stolen from the artifact are too powerful of a secret to be kept from the world.

Kait’s older sister, Dr. Sara Zorn is a brilliant scientist. She knows if the find is made public and the secret joint Smithsonian/National Geographic expedition is exposed, it could usher in a global calamity. Years ago she committed herself to a moral atrocity and swore never to tell a soul. She’s been secretly researching the entity taken in 1968. By sequencing the DNA she developed an elixir of youth that she’s been testing on herself to achieve human superiority, only to find the serum has backfired – she is dying. Frantically, she works on adjusting the serum while orchestrating the destruction of the artifact and all who have seen it, including her own sister and father.

Kait Zorn musters her courage and is bent on finding the truth of who the entity is and expose it’s true meaning to the world – at all cost. In a frantic, globe-hopping adventure, Kait dodges danger at every turn from a mysterious villain who anticipates her every move and finds herself fighting a hideous plot by her sister to subjugate the entire human race.

    WONDERFUL!

    What a page-turner! Loved every second of it! Christian fiction at its BEST! It's like Indiana Jones, National Treasure, '007', and '24' all in one book! Super exciting, suspenseful and DEEP. So well-written, I'm hopeful for a sequel. I'd love to see this made into a movie!

    Open Minded. Adventurous. A worthy read for those that like a blend of religious fiction and action/adventure reading. Nice Job!

    The story transported this reader to a possible world changing experience surrounding the discovery of the ark of Noah. Couple this dynamic with world thought leaders desparately battling to promote the scientific explanation of evolution inspite of biblical evidence. The result is a global-scaled conflict of power brokers, greedy opportunists, and their impact on an unsuspecting world as they respectively jockey to capitalize upon or suppress knowledge of this history defining discovery.

    Unless You're a Creationist save your money

    Dinosaurs on Noah's ark? Really? This book is propaganda piece for Creationism with some very disturbing attempts to prove "scientifically" that the bible is literal truth. Sorry, but unless you hold those specific beliefs this book is silly.
