Publisher's Summary

Da Vinci Code meets Tomb Raider in this award-winning thriller that number one NYT bestselling author James Rollins called, "Full of action and suspense".

Spain 1057: During a thunderous battle, the first King of Aragon wrestles Alexander the Great's priceless Egyptian weapon from the Moors, but finds it holds a terrifying and mysterious power.

A thousand years later, on a hushed, fog-shrouded, Napa morning, gunshots and the sound of breaking glass rip through the silence. Maddy Marshall, an app designer and aikido instructor, and her twin brother Will Argones, an engineer, quickly run toward the sound. Horrified, they discover a sniper's bullet has found its human target.

Before the pool of blood on the living room floor is dry, the twins are sent on an arcane quest to recover Alexander's ancient weapon. Joined by a VanOps covert agent, they soon discover the rifle's sights are now set on them. No place is safe, a wrong move means death, and even a simple phone call is off limits if they are to survive.

From a medieval Spanish castle, they follow a time-worn trail, starting at a secret warren under the streets of Jerusalem. But if the killer finds the weapon first, it will be used to cripple the United States' eye-in-the-sky early warning systems, allowing the Russians to swoop in and prey on the vulnerable nation.

Can Maddy learn to wield the power of the dangerous weapon in time to stop the Russian scheme? Failure means fragile world peace will be forever shattered...

Ridiculous

Maybe the premise had some promise, and there was some interesting historical and tour guide info, but it was tied together with a ridiculous story

Great mix of suspense, history and technology.

If you are a fan of Dan Brown then this book is for you! The characters were very likable. I found the history mixed with the suspense as well as well researched technology very interesting. But the best part was the characters spiritual growth!

great story, excellent narration

An excellent story that had me coming back to it every chance I had. I finished it in a day and a half and I'm now going to grab the next in the series.

This story has it all, action, adventure, mystery, complicated romance, and twists that will keep you wondering what's behind the next door, symbol or artifact.

10/10, highly recommend this book.
