Breaking Ground: The Horeb Anomaly

In his novel, ‘Breaking Ground: The Horeb Anomaly,’ author Robert J. Cornell tells a story of a quest to decipher and locate an ancient artifact known as the “Perfection of Paradise” This ancient artifact holds the key to learning the truth about the history of mankind.

The novel begins by providing a historical account of the significance of the “Perfection of Paradise” which dates back to Egypt, 2150 BC. Readers will learn how Moses the Priest, the last priest of the ancient knowledge and protector of the artifact, steals it from the Pharaoh to keep it out of hands of those seeking tyrannical power, as the ‘Perfection of Paradise’ is a great source of immense power. As well, an account is given of those, who throughout history, have gone to great measures to get rid of ancient artifacts.

The plot of the story begins in 2021, where Victor Finn, a wealthy businessman and head of the organization The Finn Group, discovers an ancient scroll in an unknown language and assembles a team of scientific researchers and military personnel to translate the scroll. He finances an excavation quest to Jordan to learn the secrets of the scrolls and locate the “Perfection of Paradise.” The central characters Jack Butler, a former special –ops officer, and Holly Webster, an expert in ancient language translation, along with the rest of the team begin a dangerous journey of following the clues the scroll offers to locate the ‘Perfection of Paradise’ and  acquire knowledge that would change Man’s view of the history of humanity. Their journey becomes dangerous and even life threatening as they contend with an ominous group known as the ‘Brotherhood,’ and their leader Al Fatima who tries to stop them from securing the artifact so that he can suppress historical knowledge that is not consistent with Man’s long held beliefs about the history of human civilization.

‘Breaking Ground: The Horeb Anomaly,’ is an exciting adventure story that integrates Biblical accounts and themes, particularly the theme based on the narrative from the Book of Exodus about the making of a golden idol by Aaron at Mount Sinai for the Israelites to worship. As well, the action and plot is a much like a blend of the ‘Indiana Jones’ and ‘The Davinci Code’ adventure movies. Readers will enjoy following the quest and the obstacles the characters must overcome both personally and professionally in order to complete their quest. The outcome of the quest and the climatic conflict will surprise readers. The story is filled with vividly described settings and action packed scenes that will engage readers’ imaginations. ‘Breaking Ground: The Horeb Anomaly,’ is highly recommended to readers who enjoy page-turning action packed stories written within a biblical and historical framework.
