You will absolutely love this book! It was mesmerizing from the moment I started it until I finished. Several times I thought that Brent wouldn't make it out alive or that some of this friends wouldn't either. It is one of those thrillers that will have you biting your nails wondering what is going to happen and who is it going to happen to.

Yes, there is a little bit of mystical qualities to the book and that is something I can't tell you that it's true or not. Each person will have to believe what they want and take from the book what you think.

Overall, it's an awesome book and if you love thrillers with a touch of fantasy, then this book will grab your attention and keep it until the end. Which to me is the whole point of a book, don't you think?

Happy Reading!

Overview of Book:

In the blink of an eye, a life begins and another ends. In a blink of an eye, Brent Venturi falls into the chasm of despair. What do you do when everything is lost? When the person you loved is gone and all you have left is guilt?

These are the questions that face Brent, the leader of the Phantom Squad and the latest in Noah’s line of descendants. His answer—go back to the beginning, back to where it all began—Mount Ararat. The last known resting place of Noah’s Ark. In his travels, Brent will meet Rowtag Achak, a Cree brave and Special Forces sniper who is on a similar path of self-destruction. Together, they will trace their steps from Palm Cove to Washington D.C., all the way to Armenia and the Khor Virap Monastery which sits at the base of Mount Ararat. Their travels will eventually take them to Alpha Camp and the Hindu Kush Mountains on the Pakistan-Afghanistan border.

When President Dupree and the Phantom Squad get captured by the Brotherhood of Gaza, time for introspection is over and time for action begins. Brent must find a way to get back to the man he was in order to save the people still left in his life. What begins as a sabbatical of self-awareness turns into a mission of survival. His own, that of the squad and more importantly, that of the president of the United States.

What man and nature takes away, only God can restore. The restoration of the Cornerstone. To find the beginning, one must walk through the past and be willing to step into the future.
