An ancient, alien technology that will change what it means to be human, a conspiracy begun before the first pyramid was built, and a world threatened by an unimaginable horror.
Deep in the Indian Ocean, Dr. Selene Khan enters an underwater dome thousands of years old, one that is fully operational. She barely escapes to the surface, only to discover that her research vessel has vanished. Can she make it to shore 100 miles away?
On the other side of the world, Agent Jack Elliot uncovers an impossible 900 grams of antimatter. The trail leads him to Egypt, betrayal, and a sinister brainwashing facility. There, in a desperate move, he rescues Dr. Selene Khan, fleeing with her into the desert.
Together, Selene and Jack race to unravel a global conspiracy and learn the truth about an ancient, alien artifact and how civilization really began. Two people must summon the courage and extraordinary ability to stop the world's oldest plan from plunging humanity onto a twisted, evolutionary path.
Artifact is a lightning-paced adventure, utterly unpredictable right up to its stunning conclusion.

I did not like this book. The performance was over the top with silly character voices and the story did not make sense. Also, thin characterisation, ridiculous plot points and so much conspiracy theory that I was about to stop listening. Plus a very unsatisfying conclusion.
While there was some interesting tech and an interesting plot. The story needed more development. IMHO this had a chance to be an epic sci-fi thriller. While still an interesting listen it tetters on the edge of recommendabilty if that is even a word.
Luke Daniels saved the story with another great performance.
The book kept a good pace
Very few predictable plot lines made the story interesting.Luke Daniel's is one of my favorite narrators.
I wish I could give a full review but I only got through a couple of painful and boring chapters before I gave up! I've heard Luke Daniels narrate before, he's a bit flat vocally to my ear but not bad but if this had been the first book I ever heard of his I'd never listen to him again! He brought no life to the characters, his character voices were inconsistent and his inflections and pitch jumpy! The storyline itself had potential but there was no quality to the writing. I'm so happy Audible has such a great return policy because this loser is going back!
The story was fast paced so the characters got as deep as needed and consistant. The story kept my interest all the way thru... And the voice reading or acting was fun varied enough to be enterained. I will rate it 4 out of 5 stars.
The book just lost my interest about 1/3 of the way through it. It wasn't horrible, but just uninteresting, and not for me.
There were a few inconsistencies, for example the Samson character referred to mark-3 in chapter 71, then mark-2 after, that irked me, but for the most part it was an ok plot progression. Not sure I liked the ending, seemed to wrap up too quickly for my taste, and it didn't seem to answer the many questions posed by the characters themselves. That said, an entertaining listen for the majority of the book.
This book had some promise but it fell short. With all of the unusual events taking place that the protagonists witnessed, it drove me nuts they were in such denial that there just might be other forces outside of what the world knew to be certain. The story was action packed but overall pretty dry.
The hound. Well he is fighting against what he is and not knowing that he is a one of a kind
Yes great job as always.
