Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Don't listen to the bad reviews!"

    I almost didn't buy this book because of all the negative reviews, but I'm glad I didn't listen to all those critics. Is this book a classic? No! Are there some errors in it? Yes. But it is one heck of a fun listen. The main characters defy all odds to defeat the evil "Mother" who is hell bent on destruction. They left this open for a sequel and I can't wait. It just goes to show that you have to make your own judgements and not put too much stock in the opinions of others.

    "Massively disappointing!"

    This book may not be the worst audiobook I've ever listened to but it was pretty close. The characters were one-dimensional, there was no plot to speak of and the writing was somthing you might expect from a 14 year old kid who has read way too many Clive Cussler novels.
    The narration is harder to critique, it bordered on creepy but that may be because of the idiotic dialog.
    Don't waste your money or your time.

    "So painful!"

    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!

    "Conspiracy theory anyone?"

    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.

    "Ho Hum"

    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.

    Story
    "Good if it were intended for a YA audience."

    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.

    "This book was a mess."

    Luke Daniels did the best he could.

    The characters in this book gained intelligence and lost it. A super human soldier was beaten by a just-a-guy. Characters would get detailed and interesting back stories right before biting it.

    I couldn't wait to be done.
