There were a few grammatical mistakes, something that happens in nearly every book I have ever read.
David Morris
The story is well crafted and it is action packed from beginning to end.

This novel is full o action, but doesn't ignore the fact that the reader wants a good story as well. There are surprises as the individual tales slowly weave together for a truly satisfying ending. I found this to be one you didn't want to put down!

It was a little confusing at first because it went back and forth among different times, but then I caught on and it was a page-turner with a surprising ending...Well worth the read.

I liked this book alot. It makes you wonder if it could really happen.There's so many people who hate americans & could be planning things like this. Plus there's so much talk about 2012... people could be planning to make things happen- BAD things.I can't wait to read the next one. He's a good writer & I say keep writing.

...take an obscure group who wish to change the way the world operates... throw in a splash or more of devious activity at tomb excavations in Egypt... global disasters and upheavals... a dissolute ex-special ops hero with a renewed purpose to live... mayhem galore.. don't blink or you'll miss some of it... great action... wonderful pace... terrific yarn... enjoyable read...

Lots of action and destruction, great characters, global adventures, and the end of the US as we know it. A different take on the megalomaniac who wants to wipe the earth clean and start all over again but it works wells.

I liked the Egyptian mythology combined with the other myths about ancient civilizations predicting the end of the world and I liked how the unlikeliest character introduced in the early part of the story develops.

Lots of violent action but no sex.

This book needs a professional editor!

Eric has done it again. This is the best book I have read so far this year. Difficult to put down. The story is well crafted and it is action packed from beginning to end.I could give you an outline if the story but I don't want to spoil it. Buy it, read it, you will be gripped. Ian Flemming has a contender.

I rated the book four stars, then came to write my review. I visited the authors page as suggested and read his comments about the ending. Personally I felt the ending could go either of two ways, but choose to believe the better of the two, optimist that I am.

There were a few grammatical mistakes, something that happens in nearly every book I have ever read. So that didn't bother me.

What did bother me was the fate of one of the persons that I hoped would die a slow and painful death. It was never disclosed the fate of the Egyptian head of antiquities. A la The Stand by Stephen King, there were little viginettes of people affected without any other relation to the story. I liked that a lot. It kind of made it more personal.

I liked this book enough to give it 4 stars, but not enough to keep it in my library. I do, however, recommend it to anyone trying to decide whether to purchase it.
