    Constantinople, 1203: As the rapacious armies of the Fourth Crusade lay siege to the city, a secretive band of Templars infiltrate the imperial library. Their target: a cache of documents that must not be allowed to fall into the hands of the Doge of Venice. They escape with three heavy chests, filled with explosive secrets that these men will not live long enough to learn. Vatican City, present day: FBI agent Sean Reilly infiltrates the Pope's massive Vatican Secret Archives of the Inquisition....

    Overall

    Another well written, thrilling novel from the tremendously talented Raymond Khoury. While I agree that the narrator wouldn't be my first choice, the plot, characters, action and rich backstory made me forget everything else. In fact, I almost got a ticket from CHP because I was listening to the Capadocian fight scene (won't say more to avoid spoilers) and totally forgot how fast I was driving. Fortunately for me, the officer let me go with a warning. My only regret is that it feels as if the Templar story line is finished, but I'd like to keep following the adventures of Reilly and Tess.

    The world is only half made. What exists has been carved out amidst a war between two rival factions: the Line, paving the world with industry and claiming its residents as slaves; and the Gun, a cult of terror and violence that cripples the population with fear. The only hope at stopping them has seemingly disappeared - the Red Republic that once battled the Gun and the Line, and almost won. Now they're just a myth, a bedtime story parents tell their children, of hope.

    John says: "best of the subgenre"
    "Great characters, great world - best narrator."
    Overall

    Stick with this book for a richly nuanced world with compelling characters framed against a fantastic, alternate world. When the characters started frustrating me because of who they were, I realized how deeply under my skin the author had gotten. Bravo! Also, have to say that Tamara Marston is an outstanding narrator. Although I've only listened to a couple of dozen audiobooks so far, she really stands out for her outstanding ability to differentiate between voices without feeling forced or artificial. Can't wait to hear her other work and hope they bring her back for the sequel.
