The Cydonia Objectiveby David Sakmyster
In this pulse-pounding, mind-expanding third novel of the Morpheus Initiative trilogy, psychic Caleb Crowe must locate the ancient Spear of Destiny - the one item with sufficient power to destroy the Emerald Tablet - before those who stole it can unlock its power and use it eradicate all life on the planet. It's a quest that will lead Caleb and his team through history, even viewing events beyond the Earth, where ancient enemies started a war that has yet to end. From the caverns under the Sphinx to ancient ruined cities in Pakistan, and then on to a secret government project in Alaska, the Morpheus team will ultimately track the Spear to the Statue of Liberty, along the way encountering new psychics, deadly enemies with abilities to block their visions, and mysterious ancient knowledge locked away in the most unreachable of places...

Final book in the Objective trilogy... This one wasn't as captivating as the first 2 but still a fun read.
Really enjoyed the whole trilogy
The first two books were fantastic! What a great concept! The only thing off for me was the behavior of the twins......not realistic for their ages , gifted or not. Other than that it's a must read! ,
With 1026 pages of on going adventure, it was worth the ride. Enjoy!
Having raced my way breathlessly through the first two books of The Morpheus Initiative (The Pharos Objective and the Mongol Objective), I had high expectations of this third title - possibly the final chapter in a terrific series. Clever, tense, exciting - this has been a brilliant ride thus far. Note: as an advance reviewer, I'm lucky enough to have read this third book already. I wasn't disappointed. A manic start sees kidnap, murder and yet more mysteries thrown in front of the Morpheus team, who having successfully located the keys to the Emerald Tablet that will unlock man's greatest secrets, are suddenly embroiled in an ageless battle between the followers of Gods from the Stars, and face twisted designs that go deeper and further back in time than anyone had imagined. Senator Mason Calderon is bent on his insane megalomania, and has molded Caleb Crowe and Nina's twin sons for this purpose. Gifted with their parent's powers of Remote Viewing, Isaac and Jacob are set against the Morpheus team, who are joined by the remnants of the Stargate Project to battle the final act of destruction that the followers of Marduk have planned. Locations as diverse as Afghanistan, Egpyt, and the Pacific Northwest (all with a variety of traps and mishaps) see our band of psychic heroes thrown from trial to test as loyalties are tested, hopes dashed, new partnerships formed, and resolute determination is drawn forth to save mankind. A shattering conclusion in the bowels of HAARP will leave you reeling. As with the previous two books, David weaves a spectacular tale that drags the host of well developed characters through fast-paced adventures, testing their resolve and examining their flaws. The trap of a mindlessly evil genius is avoided - Calderon is as thoughtful as he is determined to ascend, and the delightfully twisted twins are suitably hesitant and uncertain (as young boys would be) when things start falling apart and their half-brother Alexander realises his extraordinary potential. The Morpheus Team are stretched beyond breaking point, and only sacrifice and forgiveness will see them succeed. As with the last two books, this is simply unputdownable, riveting and brilliant. Bravo. I'm already anticipating his new thriller, Blindspots, to be released soon!
