Unknown 9: Genesis is a complex science fiction thriller featuring secret groups, code breaking, hidden history, conspiracy theories and mind bending scientific breakthroughs. This is the first book of a trilogy and the beginning of the book was a gradual set up of characters, events and background before getting too heavy into the plot. The writing gripped me from the beginning, building suspense as Dr. Corwin is running for his life. After that, the set up bounces back and forth between Andie, Cal, Omer who is contracted to deliver them, and Ettore in the 1930's. This lends to a slower pace in the beginning, however it does a wonderful job of creating deep characters and intriguing story line that is compounded, but easily followed. I enjoyed the fast paced adventures in Egypt and Italy's historical spaces. I'm deeply interested in the Leap Year Society and the secrets they want to protect. I was absorbed by the idea of The Fold and the potential it could unlock. There is much more to explore with all of the characters and the journey they are on, I can't wait to read more.

Unknown 9: Revelation is the second book in the Genesis Trilogy. You must read book one first in order to grasp the full scope of the story. Just like the first book, Revelation is an addictive thriller, impossible to put down. The story picks up right where it left off in Genesis. I absolutely love the complexity of the puzzles on the Star Phone and how they lead Andie and Cal to unique places with hidden histories all over the world. Added points of view from Dr. Corwin on his mission in the 1970's and two members of the Ascendents round out the story and help put more pieces of the puzzle in place. Written with extreme detail and care for plot, characters and imagination, Revelation is a fast-paced adventure that I can't wait to continue in the last part of the trilogy.
