Simultaneously, Michael orders the Brethren, the ruthless group that has been hunting Gabriel, into a full-scale search. Gabriel yearns to find his father to protect him; Michael aims to destroy the man whose existence threatens his newfound power.
The race moves from the underground tunnels of New York and London to ruins hidden beneath Rome and Berlin, to a remote region of Africa that is rumored to harbor one of history's greatest treasures. And as the story moves toward its chilling conclusion, Maya must decide if she will trade everything to rescue Gabriel.

I love the first book, there was NO action in this one. I have enjoyed Scott Brick work on other books, but his performance fell very short when it came to giving believable accents here. Too bad I really wanted this one to be a home run!
A little dark, but good story. Not really blown away, but wanted to see how it ended. A little anti-climatic however...
John Twelve Hawks has created an unorthodox and dangerous world with just enough reality to pull the reader deeply into the parallel dimensions of his world.
