I could not put this book down. It followed me everywhere.

cover_numbI could not put this book down. It followed me everywhere. It reminded me of Dan Brown’s The Da Vinci Code.

In the story a group of leaders use their power t o twist the Bible into their own “religion.” They kill people who interfere with their will and go against their rules.

I loved that this book was set in the future and at one point the story “traveled” past Earth. There was also a lot of technology and I would love to see what a parrot looks like. This book met my mystery goals for a book and my science fiction goals.

There is so much more to the book. At its core it is about a man that feels nothing and does not remember his past. He has no idea who he was, or why he is who he is. The action in the book was also really descriptive and I could imagine the bullets and weapons as they were used.

The character of Isolda changes the novel’s hero, Crusader (he doesn’t even know his own name). She makes him feel something, and she looks strangely familiar. They are on the run trying to escape the Ministrix and their peons. However it is a battle of wills and the need for survival make people do anything. Friends become enemies, and strangers become comrades. I could not believe who back stabbed them and I could not believe who Crusader was and why he became the Crusader.

The author uses a lot of background to fill in the gaps, but it is told by a third party and I felt like I was hearing it with the characters. I was as shocked as them.

I am giving this book a 5/5. I was given a copy to review, however all opinions are my own. I highly recommend this book. I can not wait to read more from this author.
