The Anomaly by Michael Rutger
“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?” ~ Back cover description copied from Goodreads
This book was fantastic! Straight up brilliant! I won this book off a Goodreads giveaway and was intrigued by the “Indiana Jones meets X-Files”. Noland Moore and his small team run a webTV series on YouTube where they try to “prove” or “disprove” myths. This episode, it all goes wrong but could also be the one that makes or breaks The Anomaly Files. I liked how this book was get close to home in the Grand Canyon. No need to travel to a far away place. This book was pretty creepy. Being stuck in a cave with random creatures would be a nightmare. There was one part of this book that was really gross… Shocking and original. I’m not going to give it away because I hate spoilers and Im kind of into the more gruesome the better when reading a thriller. Noland Moore is the next Indiana Jones or even Robert Langdon if you follow Dan Brown’s books FOR SURE. This plot was fantastic. It kept me guessing and up all night reading. NEEDING to find out what was really going on. The ending of this book was not what I expected at all. It will seriously make you think about the origins of creations. I entertained some fresh thoughts. I hope there is more featuring this awesome cast of characters as they continue with The Anomaly Files.
HAPPY BOOK BIRTHDAY! This book is available today!
