My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Permit me to say from the outset that this is one of the most unusual thrillers I’ve ever read. I was intrigued by subject matter and the premise, and I certainly wasn’t disappointed by the way the author captured this. Being a committed Christian, I’m never bothered by any books that challenge my faith. In fact, sometimes I appreciate a good challenge. It reminds me of why I believe as I do.
First of all, it is important to point out that there is some profanity in the book. There are a few sexual references/innuendoes as well, but there is no detail on that. While I could have done without these, I would never mark the book down for this. Additionally, I struggled to keep all the characters straight. I would have loved to have some cast of characters guide that I could have consulted (perhaps there was one and I missed it–I was reading a review copy after all). But again, I wouldn’t mark a book down for this.
For me, the story was well-developed and full of excitement. The right amount of suspense and tension was maintained throughout. In fact, some will not enjoy the conclusion of the book, but I found that it was a perfect ending. There was no overly descriptive violence in the book either. It was evident that the author had done his research. In fact, I wish that I had known just a bit more about church history. I’m grateful I knew what I did, and the Biblical references and the way they were used was intriguing. If you are looking for a book that will challenge the views of orthodox Christianity written in a thrilling style, this book is certainly for you.
I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. I was not financially compensated, and all opinions are 100 percent mine.
