Lover of books, music, and all things Scottish.
I love stories about the templates and I really like a fast paced mysteries so I figured this would be a winner. It was pretty good. A lite predictable in places, but I enjoyed it enough to buy the next book in the series.
The plot was good. Enough complications to keep it interesting, but not so many that you're lost. I kept up with the story easily and looked forward to hearing more of it.
I did not have an extreme reaction, but it did connect emotionally to me very well.
Great book. The main character's change of heart so quickly and easily at a moments notice seemed rushed to me, but my wife didn't think so. I also missed the main point at the end, but my wife got it and explained it to me and then I saw it easily. Very enjoyable book.
At or near the top. A great story, well written and well narrated. I love dit.
The "now/then" contrast in time and story. My only criticism is that the story was way too long. It had 3 or 4 endings -- any of which would have been suitable.
Our "hero" of course!!
I especially liked the discussion of the "pros and cons" of religion. A really great comparison of the subject matter.
Any of the earlier endings would have been better. The author went on and on before ending the book on an unbelievable note. Still, the story was, overall, very good and I enjoyed 99% of the dialogue.
It was so close to being good many times. The plot just kept falling short, the twists were predictable & how it ended was just frustrating for lack of a better word.
His voice didn't do justice to most of the characters. It's too specific of a voice.
This book sucked me in, the conflict internal of the main characters makes you want to know how it turns out.
I loved Tess she is a great strong female character
He was able to individualize each character so I was not confused who's head I was in.
I loved Tess' motive change in the end.
Covert spy & crime thrillers with lone heroes. Lots of action, start to end. Bad endings = bad book. Love Jack Reacher & Nathan McBride!!
I thought it would be good because there was some association to Dan Brown.......Nope!
Didn't get far eough into it.
This was interesting and well written. I would not call historically accurate or a testament of faith. This was just a good book that enjoyed listening to. Relax and enjoy a good story.
This is an interesting story with a definite ending. Of course there are always a couple of parts that you should not dwell on for believability. There is a lot of action and good flow. Surely, you have heard of the Knights Templar and their protection of some secrets. This story is one possible line of those secrets coming to light. The story takes place in current times and flashbacks to the past. The narrator is very good.
Not a page turner. This is a book with an agenda. If it had a decent plot line or even a decent character or two, it might be simply boring. This book has a contrived hatred of the Catholic Church coupled with every trite plot element. The author has little command of the history. He has a hatred and he wants to share it. I regret I wasted so much time on this author.
