What if? That's the question the author brings to light in this novella. The story revolves around Army historian Adam Cadman. He's out on patrol in the Iraqi desert to investigate some ruins. When his team is ambushed by the enemy, they are forced to take refuge in ruins, but what they find there may be worse than facing the enemy and a powerful sandstorm bearing down on their location.
This is a smart well-researched story that stretches the teachings of most modern-day religions by introducing an alien element to the beginnings of mankind. This is not in any way derogatory to long-held beliefs, but merely an example of "what if." The story moved along at a fast pace keeping my interest throughout. I loved how the story was not preachy in any way, but left it up to the reader to decide what to believe. Fans of sci-fi and the military will definitely enjoy this story. Recommended.
I received this book in exchange for a fair and honest review.
