Mystery… Intrigue…. The Catholic Church… Good – vs - Evil
A scroll written by the Apostle John while exiled in Patmos 60 years after the crucifixion of Jesus Christ.
During the first century, the apostle John, under the direction of God Himself, writes a message on a scroll. John then entrusts only his family to protect and guard it. It has been kept safe and hidden for many centuries. Now, as Thomas Riley lies dying, God sends the archangel Michael to summon his granddaughter Anna to his bedside. She is now the newest Guardian of the scroll.
Even though she has believed her grandparents died many years earlier, she heeds Michael’s words and immediately flies to Pennsylvania. But she is too late; he has passed away. Now, with no grandfather to enlighten her, Father Vin steps in. He tells her about the Apostle John, the scroll, the family history of guarding it, and the dangerous job ahead of her. She is the one to locate it…. before Lucifer does. Anna is the Guardian and Father Vin is her Protector.
With a private plane, her own bodyguards, and a safe house in London, Anna and Father Vin continue the journey her grandfather had begun. Following clues left by Thomas, they begin putting the pieces together, slowly and meticulously.
Yet none of this is easy or safe. They are being tailed by killers whose only desire is to be paid for the kill. Who wants them dead? Who will survive? Will they accomplish the task set before them? How high up in the Catholic Church does the deceit go? What is on the scroll? Can they break the riddle fast enough?
I loved this book! I was hooked in the first chapter!
This book became part of me. As I was reading, I wanted to know what happened next. If I wasn’t reading at the time, I was running the storyline through my mind for possible twists and turns in the plot, etc. I didn’t want to put it down! (Unfortunately, someone had to make dinner and teach!)
I look forward to reading more books from Robbie Cheuvront (with Eric Reed).
My rating: 5 out of 5 stars
