Adam is an archaeologist serving as a captain in the American army in Iraq. A dust storm has cleared some previously unknown ruins in the desert and he and a few colleagues are sent to investigate it. The information he finds changes his view of the origins of the human species.

This story takes a path perhaps familiar to some readers of this genre. Did we evolve as other creatures did or were we 'helped' in any way? I loved the way that various creation myths were invoked, some of which I was familiar with already. Towards the end the story took a turn which I hadn't expected. This isn't a long read but it's fluent and persuasive. I enjoyed it very much.

Solders on patrol in Iraq discover ruins. They go inside to avoid getting shot at and discover a person. They get a history lesson that is different than what is general accepted. Bible verses and swearing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Move over Dan Brown, Martin Roy Hill has arrived. 30 Nov. 2014
By Liam Saville - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Martin Roy Hill has returned with a fabulous new novella, Eden. I've made no secret in the past of my fondness for Hill's work, and I'm pleased to tell you that Eden easily lived up to, and even surpassed what I've come to expect from this exciting American author.

Following the story of Captain Adam Cadman, a US Army historian and archaeology professor, Eden tells the tale of group of soldiers who uncover a long forgotten chamber between the Tigris and Euphrates rivers in the Iraqi desert. Taking refuge amongst the artefacts during a vicious sandstorm, the group uncovers evidence of previous extra-terrestrial life on earth. The secrets they learn could destabilise centuries of accepted human history and religious belief, and as we see are clearly too overwhelming for some members of Cadman's group.

Hill has meticulously researched the archaeological, historical, and religious aspects of his book, and his efforts shine through in the form of a fascinating and exciting plot line that doesn't let up until the very end. With Hill's focus on extra-terrestrial life, obvious parallels can be drawn to the Stargate sci-fi franchise; however I couldn't help but be reminded of aspects of Dan Brown's bestselling Da Vince Code and Robert Langdon series. As with Brown's work I am certain that there will some critics who refer to the work as being anti-religious, I however didn't find that to be the case. Eden is an exciting and powerful sci-fi thriller. It will get your pulse racing; while at the same time have your mind spinning, all the while asking, what if?

Well done Mr Hill, you've come up with another original, and fantastic read.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Fascinating and Thought-provoking Story 20 Jan. 2015
By Jay Allan Storey - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book has everything - war, mystery, character conflict, inner conflict, and lots of surprises. Eden is the story of a group of soldiers in the Iraq war who find something in the desert that changes their lives forever. Masterfully weaves together scenes of the soldiers’ battle against the enemy and a killer sandstorm with their discovery and its impact, and poignantly depicts their personal battles to make sense of and accept what they have found. Loved it!
5.0 out of 5 stars New spin on so-called "intelligent design." 14 Sept. 2016
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Summary: An American army patrol is sent to investigate ancient ruins in Iraq. When an enemy mortar shell blasts an opening into a hidden burial chamber, Captain Adam Cadman and his soldiers take refuge deep in the ruins. What they find hidden inside threatens to destroy every belief about the beginnings of mankind -- as well as modern civilization as we know it.

I enjoyed this and recommend it highly. It gives one pause for thought -- and puts a new spin on so-called "intelligent design."

By Terrie L. Relf - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
It was a fast and fascinating read, and I wish that it had been longer. Hill has the ability - and gift - to pull me into his story. I don't want to give any spoilers, so suffice it to say that the subject matter resonates with me and there were elements of surprise which is always a huge plus. If you're interested in ancient archaeology, Nibiru, and the Annunaki, then this book is for you. If you're intrigued by historic tales of "early" civilization, then this book is for you. If you are curious about the ancient alien "theories," then this book is also for you.

This was an interesting take on biological history and the theory of evolution vs. creation vs. science fiction (maybe).
