Description

Fans of Fringe, The X-Files, Supernatural and Grimm will love the adventures of the O.C.L.T., slam-packed with action, adventure, the occult, magical creatures and history, this series follows an elite group with special abilities and skills as they work behind the scenes to help keep the paranormal and the unnatural from endangering the world.

There are incidents and emergencies in the world that defy logical explanation, events that could be defined as abnormal, extraterrestrial, or simply otherworldly. Standard laws do not allow for such instances, nor are most officials or authorities trained to handle them. In recognition of these facts, one organization has been created that can. Assembled by a loose international coalition, their mission is to deal with these situations using diplomacy, guile, force, and strategy as necessary. They shield the rest of the world from their own actions, and clean up the messes left in their wake. They are our protection, our guide, our sword, and our voice, all rolled into one.

They are O.C.L.T.

Moses used it to save his people. Now it could doom them.

How do you stop a miracle?

A vision from Ancient Egypt and a call from an old acquaintance send Rebecca York—mystic, occult expert, and adventurer—to the Dead Sea to prevent a horrifying attack straight from the annals of ancient history.

Rebecca and computer expert Wendell “Mack” Macklemore team up with a renegade Vatican monk, a Jersusalem street urchin, and a Mossad agent to oppose Amunet, an Egyptian sorceress, as she comes ever closer to exacting an ancient revenge and unleashing a terrorist attack that could plunge the Middle East into an era of darkness.

This is the first full-length novel in the O.C.L.T. series about a group selected to shield the world from situations that defy logical explanation using diplomacy, guile, force, and strategy as necessary. Don’t miss the rest of the O.C.L.T. series!

Truly liked the book. Basic premise, without giving away the book, is a melding of history with the present day. Then you use the ability of the primary character to use the history they've learned to alter the present day situation. The author is not changing history to change the current day, but using the history of what they've learned to change the current day. Sort of like a time travel book.

Another great read from David Niall Wilson. He seems to be able to write in multiple genres exceeding well: horror, fantasy, and science fiction. This book was enjoyable, with great characters and great pacing. Will need to track down the other O.C.L.T. books to read. #TheParting #NetGalley

This book has a lot of potential and I liked how it started. Unfortunately it became confused and the story didn't keep my attention
Not my cup of tea.
Many thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for this ARC, all opinions are mine
