A Convoluted, Offensive Adventure

I had high hopes for this book, especially with its intriguing premise of Templar Knights, ancient artifacts, and secret societies. Unfortunately, it fell short in too many ways.

The story follows attorney Cameron Thorne and British researcher Amanda as they race around New England, trying to uncover 600-year-old mysteries. It sounded like a thrilling adventure, but the execution left much to be desired. The plot was convoluted and hard to follow, making it a struggle to stay engaged.

One of the major issues was the book’s strong anti-Christian tone. It felt heavy-handed and detracted from the story rather than adding any meaningful depth. The author’s handling of religious themes was off-putting and could be quite offensive to some readers.

Moreover, the audiobook narration was poor, which made the experience even more frustrating. The narrator’s delivery was dull and lacked the energy to bring the story to life.

At 442 pages, the book was simply too long; I was bored and often wished it would just end. It’s disappointing because I had been looking forward to reading this book for a long time, but it never captured my attention. I give it 2 stars.
