#1 must read
This is a book that should be read at least twice. It is some of the best writing I have ever read and the tale is so well presented.
It is a must read. The same can be said for The Sepulchre.
Kate Moss is a superb author.

This book was a book club pick for the CSUCI book Club. I loved how it took place through history and the present. A good take on something that we have all read or seen in The Da Vinci Code. Can't decide if I want to part with it or keep it on my bookshelf.

Too much detail
This is an intriguing story that got lost in too much detail. The attention to detail was almost scholarly, which was a distraction in some cases. It broke the action so the scenes didn't flow as smoothly as I liked. It was not the page-turner that I had hoped it would be and had a predictable ending. I would recommend it to people who enjoyed "The DaVinci Code" or similar fiction.

This book will have you rooted to it from the start.The book has a lot of intique and mystery to it and plenty of places for you to imagine yourself to be in.The main character of the book has a connection to the past thats captured in the book and you will be left wondering yourself how it will end. All in all it's a fantatic read and one book i couldnt put down till i read the last page. If you last history and mystery in a book this one is for you.
