4.0 out of 5 stars Mostly for the series fans but will not disappoint those who will encounter Event Group for the first time, 16 Dec. 2013
This review is from: Carpathian (Event Group Thrillers) (Hardcover)
For those unfamiliar with the David Lynn Golemon book series, the Event Group is a team of people who are trying to uncover the real truth behind greatest myths and stories in human history.

His latest book "Carpathian" is set in the Middle East and begins with Moses exodus of the Israelites out of Egypt and across the Red Sea. They are pursued by the Egyptian prince Amun-her-khepeshef who was the firstborn son of Pharaoh Ramesses II and Queen Nefertari, and his army. When the Egyptians tried to cross the Red Sea, the tide came in and the Egyptian army began drowning. The Egyptian prince also finds himself faced to the creature known only from the Hebrew stories used to frighten Egyptian children - a Golia.

The book setting is changed, many years had passed when Nun's son Joshua met Kale of the Tribe of Jeddah, seeking his help to conquer the city of Jericho. At first, Kale will refuse him because his tribe has suffered a lot of casualties, including their valuable Golia whose number was also greatly reduced. Eventually, Kale will be persuaded by Joshua to help and in return Joshua promised to his tribe they will be allowed to leave to some other places not to be followed are asked to help. Three of the Golia would also be sent to help Joshua but his fate would be unfortunate...

Thousands year later, after World War II In 1949, secret meeting would take place on a yacht near Hong Kong when few chosen men were invited to observe some great valued history artifacts, few of them part of the Event Group. One of the displayed artifact is a stone allegedly excavated from the Jericho site and within this stone fossilized remains of some creature is found, although similar to wolf's it brings great mystery from the past...

Golemon's "Carpathian" is an interesting book that on a fantastic way is giving further details of the events from distant past, about the seeking of truth what happened to the people of the Jeddah and did the extraordinary Golia really existed, what they were... As in all other previously published Event Group book series, during they search they will uncover some truths deeply buried and quite disturbing.

This science fiction book has nice pace and especially in this long summer nights was exciting to read. The way book is finished was in a way "cherry on the top" and adds to the excitement of the book.

It is intended mostly for the fans of the series but will not disappoint those who will encounter for the first time this unusual group of people and participate in their exciting adventures. Recommended.
