THRILLER REVIEW: Origin - JT Brannan

Release Date: 25/10/12


For millennia it has lain there undiscovered. Now the time has come... Research scientist Evelyn Edwards always knew the Antarctic held deep secrets but the discovery of a 40,000 year old body buried under the ice caps surpasses even her wildest expectations. But just as her team begins extracting the body the dream turns into a horrific nightmare as they are targeted for death by someone who wants to keep this secret buried. Evelyn barely escapes with her life... On the run, alone and desperate, she turns to her ex-husband Matt Adams, a former member of an elite government unit, for help. Soon, they find themselves caught up in a frantic race against time, which takes them from Area 51 to the Large Hadron Collider in Geneva, as they try to uncover the biggest conspiracy of all time before it's too late for everyone... If mankind thought it knew its origins, the time has come to think again because its every belief is about to be challenged...


I love a thriller that gives me a story that takes me on a high octane adventure and whilst some of the elements stretch belief hugely, it is definitely a book that delivers on what it promises on the cover. It’s well written, it has solid high action prose and when backed with a pace that is hard to put down generates a read that really is a ton of fun.

Throw into the mix a huge conspiracy which when backed with an author who obviously enjoys taking the reader on a journey of imagination and all round it was a book that I was pleased I took the time to read. Great stuff.
