This is an interesting story full of conspiracy theories. What I liked most about this story was that it kept you guessing till the end as to what would happen. It is full of people double crossing each other for their own benefits and you just cannot trust one person. They’ll try to help you one moment and then try to kill you the next. So, yeah, a lot of betrayals. I love them!

The flow of the writing in this one is free and methodical. Nothing is out of place. The jumping points of view can be confusing and annoying, if not done well. But, that is not the case in this one. The way that the story is written, it’s pretty easy to understand what is happening when and which character is it focusing on.

It is a pretty well written piece of literature that you must definitely read!

The only thing that I didn’t like about it is the Dan Brown – esque feel that this story has. At many points, I felt that it was a Dan Brown novel and not someone else’s. The individuality of the author was lost at times and that was a definite negative point to this story.

Other than that, the portrayals, the reference and the characterization is done brilliantly. I love how all the Biblical references are made. All characters have a defined, unique voice in the narrative. The plot is amazing.

Long story short, if you are a fan of Dan Brown, particularly the Robert Langdon series, then Aiden Leonardo is the man for you!
