If you are into traditional religion this is not the book for you. If you are open to a great story, spiritual and romantic, woven into history in a "heretical" way, I definitely recommend this book. The narrator does a wonderful job playing all of the parts. I hated for the book to end. Who knows what really happened in history? Even if we were there would we know the whole story? I cannot wait for Kathleen McGowan's next book.
This is a great book and intense from the beginning. It is not the kind of book I normally listen to and I found myself wishing I hadn't gotten it but I got hooked and had to hear the whole thing. The performance is masterful. You will not be disappointed if you like suspense and you like your stories on the rough side.
Well I've listened to a lot of audiobooks but I rarely write reviews so this is up there.
So many great moments but I really enjoyed the main character's first field experience.
She has a great way of portraying all of the characters, male and female.
I did cry at the end.
Fun ride, a little sci-fi, a little action, a little detective. So glad I got it and will look for both the author and narrator again.
Get the unabridged version! I did not want this book to end - I would definitely listen to it again. When I told my friend about it she told me she read the print version twice! The story is beautiful, the characters are rich, the genre cannot be clearly defined. Watch for the movie, you can bet there will be one!
There is a lot going on in this book. The afterward by the author intimates that it is not quite fiction although it must be categorized as such and I thought it was very brave of her to do that. The story does make you think and I do agree with the author when she says that history was written by the winners - so who knows what they didn't tell us? I look forward to the sequels - I hope there are many. I would listen to this book again.
