Origins (English Edition) Kindle版
Archeologists working in the Giza plateau make new discoveries about Egypt’s past. Recorded history of the Great Pyramid, Sphinx, even Moses and the slave exodus to the Promised Land are drawn into question as they unravel the mysteries they find and encounter elements intent on preserving those secrets.
A patient in a psychiatric hospital may be the key to it all. Hastelloy is convinced he’s locked in a battle for humanity’s survival with the mysterious species Alpha that has spanned the course of human history since ancient Egypt. Is he crazy, or is it crazy to ignore him?
Meanwhile, NASA and the National Security Agency struggle with the future of mankind amid the launch of a new deep space probe capable of broadcasting a message that will be heard by others. Some believe it can propel humanity to new heights, others insist it will bring about the end of mankind. Both sides will stop at nothing to further their cause.
Mankind’s past, present and future are revealed in this gripping thriller that does not let go for a single page, and has enough twists and turns to test even the most sturdy safety harness. The Origins of all will be revealed.

I love sci-fi and historical fiction. This was not too deep or serious, just fun.
For me, this was a book that I read at every chance I could, and is the reason for 5 stars.
I am looking forward to continuing the series.
On the whole a rather peculiarly disappointing read.
The central theme is a patient telling a psychiatrist his story believing he is an alien and all of the things he has done since his spaceship crashed. This theme covers early Egypt and early religious themes, what we do not know is whether his story is true or not. What I did not get was why he should choose to tell his story although this may be revealed in the next book. The other two themes involves archaeologists searching in ancient Egyptian ruins and one where someone is trying to stop all communications leaving earth with the attempt to contact other possibly intelligent life. I don't think I have given away any spoilers as most of this is revealed early in the book.
I thought that this was an exciting page turner and although I found it difficult to relate to some of the characters I thought it was an excellent story.
I will definitely read the next one.
On the plus side, I read it to the end despite any misgivings about writing style. If you can tolerate incorrect grammar, the story is worth persevering with.
A very original plot. If this was ever made into a film. The psychiatrist who appears in The Terminator film interviewing Sarah Connor would be an ideal person for the role here as well.
Whilst accepting this is a trilogy the story I felt tended to splutter and lose a bit of speed and pace in the final chapters.
But all told a good and different read.
