Overview

The Parting - An O.C.L.T. Novel by David Niall Wilson

There are incidents and emergencies in the world that defy logical explanation, events that could be defined as supernatural, extraterrestrial, or simply otherworldly. Standard laws do not allow for such instances, nor are most officials or authorities trained to handle them. In recognition of these facts, one organization has been created that can. Assembled by a loose international coalition, their mission is to deal with these situations using diplomacy, guile, force, and strategy as necessary. They shield the rest of the world from their own actions, and clean up the messes left in their wake. They are our protection, our guide, our sword, and our voice, all rolled into one.

They are O.C.L.T.

A vision from ancient Egypt and a call from an old acquaintance send Rebecca York, mystic, occult expert, and adventurer to Arizona, and then Jerusalem and the Dead Sea to prevent a horrifying attack from the annals of history.

Rebecca and computer expert Wendell "Mack" Macklemore team up with a renegade Vatican monk, a street urchin from Jerusalem, and an agent of the Mossad to prevent Amunet, an Egyptian sorceress, as she comes ever closer to exacting an ancient revenge and unleashing a terrorist attack that could plunge the Middle East into an era of darkness.

This is the first full length novel of the O.C.L.T. - the Orphic Crisis Logistical Taskforce. The events of this novel predate the actual formation of the O.C.L.T., joining with the novellas "Brought to Light" by Aaron Rosenberg, and "The Temple of Camazotz," by David Niall Wilson. Each of these works introduces another facet of team, which will be formally introduced in the upcoming novel by Aaron Rosenberg : Incursion.

with all the depth of and all the plot holes of a tv show. The writing makes up for what the plot lacks. Its not a bad beginning, just not as good as it could have been.

The OCLT series gets a first full length Novel, after a couple of mouth-watering Novellas, and the action kicks off with a wonderfully evocative vision of Ancient Egypt and mysterious sorcery. Swiftly on it's heels: A break in at a New York Jewellers leaves a veteran case-cracker stumped - he has a hunch and calls in an old contact who works for the Orphic Crisis Logistical Team. Between them, the OCLT authors have thus far brought some unique and wonderfully complex characters to life and here we are introduced to Rebecca York - traveller, mystic, insightful and bold, as well as Mack Macklemore, an IT genius first encountered in the Temple of Camazotz. A mysterious and powerful (as well as curiously long-lived) sorceress, Amunet, is intent on recreating a magical and daring feat to aid her people in the Middle-East struggle, and only a lucky sage from the Vatican, a young Orphan and the OCLT pair - piecing together their experiences and clues in a race against time - have a chance to stop her. With intrigue and magic in the Desert, a search for ancient knowledge that begins in Rome, and a thrilling climax on the shores of the Dead Sea - The Parting rattles along with the same verve and relentless build that David achieved with The Orffyreus Wheel.

Read the first and thought it had possibilities but this one seems to be (or starts out as) a rehash of the first. Got bored.
