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.

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