Having read the previous two books in the series and enjoyed them I was looking forward to get stuck into this one and hoped that I would enjoy it just as much.
However I found that I enjoyed it even more than the others! There was of course the expected action with a range of interesting locations - these alone would probably have led to 4 stars.
There are two elements that prompted me to give the 5 stars though:
- the characters are quite complex for an action/plot driven book. I do not want to give too much away but I felt that in the first book there was the probably to be expected division into protagonist/s and antagonist/s but by the time this story has reached the end it is clear that such demarcations are not always easy to make.
- then there was also the inclusion of a whole range of elements from what I can only call a generous handful of conspiracy-mythical strands that added a further exciting dimension.
The book came to a good ending but I think there is room for a fourth one - I certainly hope so.

A fascinating bringing together of rich ingredientsReviewed in the United Kingdom on 21 January 2013
I'm not really sure why I bougfht thisReviewed in the United Kingdom on 7 January 2013
I suppose that after buying the first two books in this trilogoy on a whim and grinding my way through them, I got stuck on wondering what more drivel could possibly be delivered. The writing is formulaic the sentiments cardboard, the plot a poor attempt at coming up with an X men meets Indiana Jones, but the clichees are sometimes so ghastly as to be worthy of inclusion in a compilation. The author wants a Hollywood blockbuster, the story is so linear he may just get one.

Excellent conclusion to an exciting seriesReviewed in the United Kingdom on 26 January 2013
Couldn't put this third book in the series down. Loved the way the author developed his characters so that even the ones you thought you would hate had redeeming features. Lots of unexpected twists to the tale interwoven with myths and legends that made me want to research ancient history in more depth. Can't wait to read more by this author.
good adventureReviewed in the United Kingdom on 10 August 2014
This is the third book and carries straight on from the ending of the second. I wanted to be an archeologist and love the X Files so they are perfect for me, an exciting roller coaster of an adventure with larger than life characters, I particularly enjoyed Xavier , a good ending with leeway for another story, yes please.
Great readReviewed in the United Kingdom on 15 March 2013
I have read the other two in the series and really love the fast moving pace and twists and turns the story has taken over the three books. Fascinating and amazing adventure scenarios similar to Indiana Jones. If you love this type of historical read touching on ancient history and the origins of man on this planet you will enjoy the series. Looking forward to the next one.
