Breaking Ground: The Horeb Anomaly

Robert J. Cornell


Tate Publishing & Enterprises

Pages: 356


Imagine the history of mankind is not what we have been taught. What if information has been withheld from the masses that would alter our understanding of the first inhabitants of the Earth, even change our perspectives on religion and science? Would you want to know the truth or continue your existence ignorant of the facts? In Breaking Ground: The Horeb Anomaly, author Robert J. Cornell creates a story that presents an alternate account of the Israelites’ exodus from Egypt and challenges firmly held beliefs about ancient history.  


Victor Finn, a wealthy business man whose company develops military grade weaponry and sponsors archaeological digs in the Middle East, recruits Jack Butler, former Special Ops and head of security for several excavations and Dr. Holly Webster a top paleolinguist to lead his new excavation in Jordan. Finn’s former team (all of whom were killed during an excavation) discovered several scrolls that require translation. After reluctantly agreeing to work in the field, Holly and her new team reveal truths about the history of mankind that they believe must be shared with the world. Unfortunately, there are others who believe “the paradigm must be preserved” and they will do anything, including murder, to make certain that history as the world knows it remains intact.


This book is action packed and full of suspense. It offers a wonderful history lesson on the contributions of earlier societies and suggests that the world has not been fully informed about its earliest contributors. The author does an incredible juggling act in this book: balancing historical facts, biblical storytelling, and modern scientific and technological advances with human relationships, desires and personal drive. Cornell’s love of ancient history is apparent in the amount of detail he offers about ancient times and the artifacts that have been discovered. But the author also shares his skepticism regarding the complete openness of the scientific community in matters of history which gives the book its edge. With the story’s antagonist, Al-Fatima, represents the physical manifestation of scientific and religious leadership that wants to maintain secrets about the history of mankind, Cornell creates a violent dance between good and evil with the history of the world’s people at the core of the fight.


This is a fantastic book for history buffs and action adventure lovers. There is just enough romantic tension between Jack and Holly to remind the reader that, beyond the mission to save artifacts of history, there is also an emotional element that drives these characters. The adventures these characters go on and the ultimate prize they uncover will hold readers captive and at the end, have them longing for the next story in the lives of Holly and Jack.


Breaking Ground: The Horeb Anomaly offers an amazing look at ancient history while over flowing with action. I highly recommend it.
