Updated on September 11, 2019

Reading is a series of human emotions. Writing is the gift of sharing these emotions.

Summary

The story begins with a fascinating history during the early part of the High Middle ages; It was the year 1057 in the country of Spain when Ramiro, the King of Aragon battles Alexander the Great to get a priceless Egyptian weapon from the Moors. Uncovering the mysterious power it holds becomes his objective, promising himself to guard it from those who intend to use it for evil. After almost a thousand years, three individuals of different expertise team up to find this power. Maddy Marshall is an aikido instructor and her twin brother Will Argones is an engineer. His wife, Maria and their father are shot by Russians so the twins are determined to expose the truth behind the injustice and how this connects to the lost power that they must find. Overwhelmed by the series of attacks that seem to follow and kill them just like it did Maria and their father, they trust an old friend known as Bear to help them with their quest. Bear’s background in the marines gives a big advantage for Maddy and Will because of his fighting skills. On top of this, he is an expert on history. What Maddy and Will are completely unaware of is the fact that Bear is a secret agent of VanOps, whose mission is also to find the mysterious weapon.

Review

It felt like I was watching a movie when I read this because I kept on imagining it very vividly. The action and suspense were non-stop so there was no dull moment and no time to even predict about what’s going to happen because things just keep happening! This is one of the most fast-pacing novels that I have ever read and noting it as a page-turner is an understatement; words aren’t enough to describe the excitement this book brings. I literally didn’t stop reading until I have finished it and I am hungry for the series to be complete so I can read more of Avanti’s amazing work. Her writing style is picture perfect that it’s hard to stop expressing how in awe I was after finishing the book. Maddy, Will, and Bear are my favorite team novel characters now. They seriously complete each other and make the conversations so fun to read because of its humor. An aikido instructor plus engineer plus history expert just made this even more enjoyable to read on top of the already exciting series of quest and exotic places. The intellectual flow of the story in combining science, history and human emotion is remarkable and intriguing. Overall, brainpower and entertainment are two main things that are in my mind to describe what this book is about. If you’re a fan of Dan Brown, this is the perfect book for you, and I am 100% sure you’ll get hooked.

      This sounds like an interesting and exciting story. I checked on the Internet to learn more about the writer and to see if I could borrow the book from the library. I discovered that the book isn't being released until November 9th of this year. Did you get an advance copy? You're so lucky if you did!
