The Artifact

Availability: Ready to download

Brookhaven National Laboratory sprawls in the serene natural surroundings of Eastern Long Island, New York. Deep within a heavily guarded compound on the grounds of the Laboratory, a forbidding compound houses the nation's most protected secret: An active alien Artifact. Estimated at several millions of years of age, impervious to all efforts of modern science to penetrate Brookhaven National Laboratory sprawls in the serene natural surroundings of Eastern Long Island, New York. Deep within a heavily guarded compound on the grounds of the Laboratory, a forbidding compound houses the nation's most protected secret: An active alien Artifact. Estimated at several millions of years of age, impervious to all efforts of modern science to penetrate its secrets, the Artifact taunts researchers with bursts of mysterious radiation that may be efforts at communication. Now the two top researchers have conducted unauthorized experiments using new technology, and something has awakened inside, something as old as time, wielding incalculable power and an agenda that would spell doom for humanity. As horrifying mutations and destruction descends on Long Island, it is only a mere portend of the true horror yet to come. While America's military struggles against an impossible power, only a 12-year-old crippled computer hacker and an aging police detective hold the key to the Artifact. But first they must overcome disbelieving authorities in a desperate race against time, with the very survival of humanity in the balance.

    Predictable but a fast read.

    This one would make a good movie.

    Possibly the most predictable book I've ever read. As my husband said (we listened to it on a car trip): this is the first book I've read where I actually know what the character is going to do and say as soon as they are introduced. Every character was a caricature, the plot was perfectly predictable, and the only question I have left is: did the "artifact-phone-home" light zap into deep space mean there's going to be a sequel? Yikes! Possibly the most predictable book I've ever read.

    I enjoyed it as a light read but it wasn't great. Some things occurred in the plot that were never explained or linked up, which is always annoying.

    It was ok. Not one that I will remember a year later.

    Best played when trapped in a car between Virginia and New Jersey with your only option being jumping off the Delaware Memorial Bridge.

    I kept thinking what a great movie this would make. Yes, it's predictable, but it reflects typical human behavior. I kept thinking what a great movie this would make. Yes, it's predictable, but it reflects typical human behavior.

    This is probably one of the worst books I ever listened to. Neither the book, nor the performance, was worth the time.

    Really enjoyed this book, a little different take on the alien invaders taking over the world.
