Not all secrets are meant to be found.If Indiana Jones lived in the X-Files era, he might bear at least a passing resemblance to Nolan Moore -- a rogue archaeologist hosting a documentary series derisively dismissed by the "real" experts, but beloved of conspiracy theorists.Nolan sets out to retrace the steps of an explorer from 1909 who claimed to have discovered a mysterious cavern high up in the ancient rock of the Grand Canyon. And, for once, he may have actually found what he seeks. Then the trip takes a nasty turn, and the cave begins turning against them in mysterious ways.Nolan's story becomes one of survival against seemingly impossible odds. The only way out is to answer a series of intriguing questions: What is this strange cave? How has it remained hidden for so long? And what secret does it conceal that made its last visitors attempt to seal it forever?...

I won this book on the goodreads giveaway. I would, actually, give this book 3.5 stars.
At first, I thought this book was hokum. It had every Indiana Jones movie, every Destination Truth and Expedition Unknown episode reference or recreation imaginable. Even the author was making fun of this fact. I kept thinking, this guy can write so why doesn't me make up his own stuff?
But once he got all that out of his system, the story began in earnest. It turned out to be really worthwhile. I didn't unders ...more
Probably one of the best thrillers I've read in a while! Rutger's writing is phenomenal. The way he weaves words and sentences together is beautiful. The way he laid out the story and each of the characters was perfect. Each character had a personality and I easily became invested in them.
The main character, Nolan, was fantastic. A wannabe Indiana Jones type researching the unexplored and the unexplained. He was cliche enough that you almost felt like you knew the guy, but he was still full of ...more
This book was so crazy! And Good! And ridiculous! And I just loved it!
I really enjoyed the writing - great voice for the main character, Nolan - loved his sarcasm, his wit, and dryness to the narration. Great supporting cast of characters as well. This is like...sci-fi/horror/suspense, and I thought that it was done very well.
The suspense was done very well - I was SO nervous for these people, and I can't imagine being in those caves in the dark, facing what they did. Great book! This author mi ...more
oh my lord!!!! I loved this book and will be reading anything they put out!!! I can not wait for this to become a movie!!!
If you're looking for a fast-paced Indiana Jones/Dan Brown kind of adventure, this is it! A conspiracy theory YouTuber and his crew discover something real and dangerous while filming for an episode.
I loved the overall plot. It was creepy, exciting, edge-of-my-seat material, but still intelligent and interesting. There was some clumsiness in establishing characters and their personalities, but overall it was a great read. I couldn't put the book down, and the ending was surprisingly satisfying. ...more
I read this at night
I couldn't sleep
I was transfixed by those mountains, that Canyon, that cavern
What an adventure!
I've been trekking in the Grand Canyon but nothing like this! It's thrilling and horrific beyond belief
Very clever, atmospheric and deliciously dark
"The Beach" for the trekkers and trailers of the travel world
Full review once I've recovered
Skeptical to the Scientific Community's dismissal of myths, the protagonist, Nolan investigates various myths & legends with his crew for his YouTube show. As he & his crew search for the mysterious & ultimately unconfirmed Kincaid cavern within the Grand Canyon, they soon all realize that they may have bitten off more than they can chew. They encounter villains, giant rolling stones, and strange dangerous creatures, all of which may trigger major repercussions throughout the world. ...more
I'm going to disagree slightly with the blurb, and say I think it's a little more the National Treasure gang mashing up with X-Files. Our protagonist Nolan does pointedly mention not being an archaeologist a couple of times, after all, making him a little less Indy-like. This was a quick light read, one that didn't ask me to think too much. After turning the last page and seeing that the author is also a screenwriter, I realized why. I definitely sensed a just-slightly-superficial quality, the o ...more
