Setting Date: 1921 Susan Woolsey is a third-generation explorer and one of the few women in the burgeoning field of archeology. After six years of digging in the deserts of the Middle East, she is rewarded with an unprecedented discovery. To her amazement, she has unearthed a pristine tomb bearing not only the remains of a Sumerian goddess, but also a trove of invaluable relics—and most important of all, ancient clay tablets that tell a most incredible story. If Susan can prove that the story is true, it will not only change history as we know it but will forever alter mankind’s view of itself, changing the very fabric of our existence. Her secret puts Susan in direct conflict with numerous world governments, religious factions, and various clandestine secret societies, all with the sole purpose of using the new knowledge for their own twisted agendas. She quickly learns that these people will stop at nothing to achieve their nefarious goals. When a mysterious stranger appears to warn her of the impending dangers, he advises her to seek out help from another archeologist named Will Furness. As soon as Will arrives, they both discover that their very lives are at stake. Their only chance for survival is to prove Susan’s theory and make it public before they are caught. Now it’s a race against time and across two continents. Can she survive the onslaught, caught up in world powers beyond her belief? Has she found the man that can truly stand with her in all aspects of her life? Can she live with the knowledge that she is about to unleash on the world? Can she live with the knowledge that she discovers about herself? This debut novel by a talented new novelist explores many previously unanswered questions about the origins of the entire human race and how we fit in this world that we thought was ours alone. If you enjoy high adventure, scientific intrigue, and old-fashioned treasure hunting, then this is one story not to be missed.
