Legacy

David L. Golemon

The United States is ready to make a triumphant return to the moon, striking out boldly into the solar system in an attempt to regain the confidence of the heady days of the Apollo program. But a shocking discovery at Shackleton Crater brings the first Prometheus mission to an abrupt halt.

Remote robots have uncovered human skeletal remains—and forensic analysis at NASA reveals the corpse to be over 700 million years old. As the news of this discovery is leaked across the universe—and a battle rages over the truth of our heritage—the Event Group is tasked to unravel the mystery behind this ancient visitor. Colonel Jack Collins once again leads a team of the world's greatest scientists and philosophers on a journey that will take the Event Group into the realm of space and confront one of humanity's most pressing questions: Could something—or someone—else be coming to finish a war that began almost a billion years ago?

Praise for Legacy

“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

“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

“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 on the Event Group Thrillers
