At last, we will learn the truth about humankind’s origins... But do we really want to know?
The Ark of the Covenant...Excalibur...The Holy Grail... Finally, the world’s legendary artifacts have been unearthed, their secret powers revealed. Now, as the fate of Earth hangs in the balance, humans and aliens race for control of the final secret: the location of the alien mothership--our last best chance for survival. For Area 51 commander Mike Turcotte, the stakes are higher than ever...because the secret lies buried in the repressed memory of his former love, Lisa Duncan.
Still battle-weary from alien wars that killed most of his Area 51 team, Mike is thrust into a final showdown--up against an alien army bent on total domination. With aliens in possession of the Final Option Missile codes, nuclear holocaust is a chilling possibility. The only bargaining chip is the mothership. For Mike, the questions mount: Can Lisa be trusted in a high-stakes swap to save the Earth from nuclear meltdown? Is he battling the real enemy? Or is the real enemy within? As the countdown begins, another shocking secret is revealed. At stake: our species, our future, our Earth.
And Nothing But...

I have been following this series along for some time now, this being the seventh volume. It is unashamedly an alien invasion, 'the truth is out there,' kind of story that makes no excuses for itself. As a result, the series has always managed to be a pleasant read even when the plot occasionally degenerates into a bit of paranoid silliness. After all, that is what makes this genre click. If a paranoid alien plot story is not what you want, consider yourself warned.For most of the volumes, this one included, the primary secret enemy is an alien race called the Airlia. They have been on the earth for some 10,000 years, happily manipulating human events to suit their own needs. In fact, it turns out that there are two groups of Airlia in conflict with each other. Moreover, as 'The Truth' reveals there are even more fish in the stew than the Airlia and their minions. It seems that every time this series uncovers an artifact - the Ark, the Grail, Excalibur, there is another... read more

Strap yourself in before you start reading this book! The action develops quickly and keeps at a furied pace all the way through. All the blanks are filled in as you learn "The Truth". The author ties it all together pretty well. I liked the book, it is a good read and it was a nice ending to the series.
Not Half Bad

The strong point of the series, and this book as well, is that the author works interesting tidbits of history and science into the novel. The book is sort of like a ufological Tom Clancy novel in that respect.Read this book and you will learn about Nikola Tesla, volcanoes and Easter Island. On the other hand, this book is a lot harder to follow than the original novel which set off this series. I found myself skimming the endless action involving the aliens and lingering on the interesting passages. There are a number of well-written scenes with vivid imagery, such as the frozen mountain climbers on a ledge.I will probably read other books in this series, especially if I am at an airport looking for something to read on a flight. Just don't expect to find literature equal to that of Ray Bradbury or Asimov in this series. That is not its purpose.
