Book Review Update: Wayward Son

29 Dec

Buried near Italy’s Mount Vesuvius is a fortified observatory containing priceless artifacts dating to the earliest record of human events. Only one person—the Getty Museum’s Amanda James—can unlock the mysterious doors that guard the chamber.

But once inside, Amanda is shocked to discover evidence left behind by a notorious Biblical killer—who long ago wandered off the pages of history.

When a strange relic unveils the miraculous truth about this villain, Amanda must confront sinister forces intent on suppressing her stunning revelation—before it alters the destiny of millions!

Wayward Son takes the reader back in time where epic adventures in Egypt, Greece, China and Rome collide with modern-day intrigue and suspense. Journey with Amanda and witness the incredible story of the world’s original Wayward Son.

My Impressions:

Yes, this is a great book!  (You can click HERE for my partial review.)  I found the writing to be excellent, the premise unique and original, the historical research well done, and as a suspense novel, it was a page turner.  And as I suspected, it is going on my best of 2011 list.  Wayward Son is the first book in a series, so it does leave some things hanging, but the story of the actual first wayward son is concluded in a wonderful way.  Read Wayward Son.  It is great!

Highly Recommended.
