The Holy Grail -- is it the key to a miracle ... or a terrifying truth? The Great Wall of China, the immense carvings on Easter Island, Egypt's pyramids, UFOs. What is the chilling connection? The answer, unearthed by an elite band of soldiers and scientists based at Area 51, is rewriting human history -- to include the aliens who shaped it! Now, in this heart-pounding novel, Area 51 personnel embark on a top secret search for the Holy Grail, a glittering artifact with the power to save the world ... or lead to its destruction. Special Forces officer Mike Turcotte has paid his dues in battle and in blood. Now assigned to Area 51, he fights the toughest enemy of his career: the alien race who arrived on earth millennia ago and have returned to claim the planet. Mike has dodged bullets and faced weapons of mass destruction to give humanity another day of reprieve. But when his lover, scientist Lisa Duncan, falls into evil hands, Mike must decide which prize means the most to him -- the woman he loves or the legendary Grail. It's a decision that could damn him ... or damn us all.… (more)

Finally things get interesting again. We get the backstory of what caused everything. The story is moving forward at a fast pace, and you can see the effect this is having on the characters. We get more background into the other species of alien that was hinted at way back in book one, and it wasn't what I was expecting at all. Definitely a better book than the previous one in the series. ( )

Thick clouds were gathering over the island, lightning flickering, followed by thunder seconds later, as if the gods were displaying their displeasure over the scene below.
