Review

"A variety of twists, surprises, and subplots keep the story moving forward at a good pace. My interest was piqued almost immediately and my attention never wavered as I forced my eyes to stay open well into the night. (Sleep is overrated.) Aiden James is a Master Storyteller, whose career is on the rise! Out-freaking-standing-excellent!" ~ Detra Fitch of Huntress Reviews, for "Immortal Plague"

William Barrow is a Smithsonian archivist. Anyone looking at him would assume his age to be around thirty years. In truth, William is two thousand and thirteen years, two months, and some days. His name is not the one he was born with either. Long ago his name was Judas Iscariot. For the price of thirty silver shekel (coins), Judas had betrayed his good friend Jesus. It is NOT something William is proud of and he seeks reconciliation with the Lord. William is a cursed immortal. He is on a quest to reclaim the thirty silver coins in hope they will prove his sincerity and allow him a full pardon.

Over the course of his lifetime, William has retrieved twenty-one shekel pieces. Several of these finds are due to his son, Dr. Alistair "Ali" Barrow, a noted historian and professor at Georgetown. Though William is Ali's father, the world believes the reverse to be true. (Ali is old enough to retire in a few years, should he choose to do so.)

As the story opens, William/Judas has found coin number twenty-two. It sits in a place called Al-haroun. William and Ali immediately plan a "vacation" to Iran. But William also does an occasional bit of espionage for the CIA. Before they can leave America, the CIA liaison, Mike, makes contact. Mike wants William and Ali to do a little surveillance. Russian billionaire, Petr Stanislav, is in the Alborz Mountains with some very high-tech machinery. He is searching for the Garden of Eden - literally. Petr is surrounded by an army that is led by Viktor Kaslow, ex Lieutenant Colonel in the Soviet Union's army from twenty-five years ago, and captain for one of Moscow's most feared KGB death squads even after the Cold War ended. Mike claims that only surveillance is needed. Scout around. Take a few photos.

I read, 'Plague of Coins' in a night! The story flows so rapidly and well.. that you just glide from one excitement to another.. and before you know it.. the book has reached the end.

The story is about Judas.. who despite being "killed" many times over the past few eons.. always manages to awake.. with his body renewed.. and his quest to retrieve EVERY coin that he took to betray Christ continues on. Judas is surprised to find.. that he's not the only immortal on the planet.. as he occasionally runs into others from time to time. They too.. have their own quests to fulfill, I'm sure.

In this story.. Judas is accompanied by his son.. who appears to be the father. As Judas is perpetually stuck looking in his thirties. Judas believes he's located another coin.. and his journey is interrupted by the American CIA who task him with a small "job" while he's in Iran. He travels with his son.. and is joined by a beautiful young lady.. who is desperately seeking her brother. Who is caught up in their parent's archeological work to help a wealthy Russian find the "Garden of Eden"!

I don't want to give any spoilers. Just know.. that the book is very well written, very well researched.. and a very fast read! Then.. you can be just as disappointed as me.. when you return to Amazon.. to find the second book to the series.. and find it's NOT here yet. ARghhhhhhh.

May my review.. encourage the author and his publisher.. to HURRY UP.. my appetite has been whetted.. and now.. I need the rest of the story.

Aiden James never disappoints! 'Plague of Coins' is by far his most riveting and entertaining work yet. Thanks also to J. R. Rain for creating the perfect collaborative vehicle for my two favorite authors. I am feeling nearly desperate for a sequel...and a prequel! Oh, and my favorite line in the book comes at the beginning as we learn why William/Judas is immortal and earth-bound: "I realize my assertion will certainly ruffle some feathers among the evangelical Christian zealots in the western world, but I'm talking about actual faithful followers and not the occasional church-goers who make up the majority of Christendom". Bravo, gentlemen!

This is now my new favorite book from Aiden James!! If you like Adventure, then get this book! From the Immortal Judas trying to find all of the coins and the Russian Villains trying to find the Garden of Eden, I wish this was a movie!!!!!! There's even a love story throughout the book that leaves you ending the book with a smile! With all the history in this book, I'm starting to think that maybe Aiden James is Immortal!??

Occasionally I give a book a 5 star review, but my average is 3 or less, and I give a lot of one stars. So why did I like this collection of improbable plot elements so much? And it has its share of stereotypes too.

It has character development. In fact, it shows the development of one character over 2000 years. It takes one of the greatest villains of all time, and makes me like him. It has reasonable outcomes. The discoveries (I'm an archeological mystery-thriller fan in general) are neither completely re-buried, nor is their exploitation overdone. It's subtle. Sure, stories about the fountain of youth have been done by the tons. But this hero is already immortal himself, and trying to die. So many paradoxes. It has a satisfactory conclusion, more than satisfactory, but also a hook into the next in the series, and I will be waiting with baited breath. Because I came to care about this strange anti-hero. I found things I can relate to my own life. Without losing any entertainment value. This is one of the three best novels I have read in my life.
