THE WORLD’s most enduring MYSTERIES are about to be revealed.

Rumors of the seemingly magical victory that allowed the Exodus of Israelites from Egypt have resonated through the archaeological world for decades. However, new evidence has been discovered that points to an explanation of how the ancient Hebrews destroyed the unstoppable army of Pharaoh with a tribe of warriors who disappeared a generation later, after the destruction of the City of Jericho, taking with them the most valued treasures of a people without a homeland.

 

BUT WHAT LIES IN STORE FOR THOSE WHO LEARN THE TRUTH?

Today, a treasure of a different kind is unearthed at the lost ruins of Jericho—one that will change the history of God’s Chosen People for all time: the petrified remains of an animal that could not exist. Enter the Event Group. Led by Col. Jack Collins, the Group’s brilliant men and women gather to discover the truth behind not only the Exodus but also the magnificent animals that led the defeat of Pharoah’s army. This thriller from David L. Golemon is a whirlwind race to save the most valuable treasure and artifacts in the history of the world from those who would destroy them, in which the Event Group is about to come face-to-face with an even greater enemy:  the mythic and larger-than-life Carpathians—or as the area was once known, Transylvania, the land of Vlad the Impaler…

“Sure to satisfy fans of The X-Files.”—Publishers Weekly

As she reached for the small piece of broken block her hand lightly rubbed against the stronger hands of a man she hadn’t felt the touch of in nearly a year. All thought of that long-ago Hong Kong night vanished during the daylight hours only to reappear when sleep claimed the eighty-four-year-old woman. As the small rubber boat bobbed up and down in the cold waters outside Hong Kong harbor she remembered the feel of the piece of stone block and the touch of Garrison Lee’s fingers as the dream

REVIEWS

Praise for Carpathian

Praise for David L. Golemon and the Event Group series

“Explosive…tense, terrifying—and worth the investment.”—Associated Press on Ripper

“A tale worthy of the giants of the genre like Clive Cussler, James Rollins, and Matthew Reilly, Legend is a definite must-read for action and adventure fans. Don’t miss it.”—Megalith.com

“The author…draws the reader in with an intriguing prologue…satisfying adventure.”
Publishers Weekly on Legend

“Golemon can write action sequences with the best of them, and he lands a solid uppercut with this book. The depth of science fiction…is surprising and ingenious.”—SFSignal.com on Legend

“Golemon combines his typical action-adventure fare with more thriller elements this time, and he focuses more on the personal stakes of his characters. …Golemon knows how to make readers turn the pages, and Primeval will only further enhance his reputation.”—Booklist

 

“Fans of Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea will enjoy Golemon’s recasting of the Jules Verne novel.”—Publishers Weekly on Leviathan

 

“Golemon’s third novel in the Event Group series proves to be his best yet….a mix of the James Rollins action-heavy adventure, the military gadgetry of Tom Clancy, the pacing of the television series 24, and the conspiracy theories devoured by fans of the radio show Coast to Coast AM.”—Booklist on Ancients

“The Roswell Incident—whether legend, fact, or some combination of both—has inspired countless novels and movies over the years, but David Lynn Golemon’s Event peels back the layers of Roswell with refreshing originality. The action is spectacularly cinematic, the characters compelling, and the story is a flat-out adrenaline rush that pits real-world, cutting-edge military technology against a literally out-of-this-world threat. Even better, the Event Group itself is one of the best fictional agencies to arise in the literature of government conspiracies.”—New York Times bestselling authors Judith & Garfield Reeves-Stevens

“Fans of UFO fiction will find this a great read, and fans of military fiction won’t be disappointed.”—SFsignal.com on Event

 

“Imagine mixing in a blender a Tom Clancy novel with the movie Predator and the television series The X-Files….readers who enjoy nonstop action and lots of flying bullets will enjoy Golemon’s series.”—Library Journal

 

“Golemon puts his military experience to good use in this promising [series]…evokes some of the early work of Preston and Child.”—Publishers Weekly
