Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Veteran journalist and conspiracy theorist Marrs (Rule by Secrecy) ropes up Nazis and ancient secret societies for his uneven fiction debut, set amidst the machinations of WWII. When the team of archeologist Giselle Tchaikovsky discovers a mysterious crystal skull near Belize, they're double-crossed by a murderous German colleague. Giselle vows revenge, journeying to Europe where the skull has been turned over to Hitler. Once in France, however, Giselle becomes involved with Resistance members, including university scholars and early Cathar devotees, and eventually widens her quest for the skull to a campaign for peace. True to form, Giselle's quest propels her along a convoluted path through Europe and Russia, ultimately leading her to resurrect an ancient sisterhood dedicated to peace and the preservation of ancient, sacred artifacts. With one-dimensional characters, stilted dialogue and lengthy "instructional" passages, this novel moves laboriously toward a predictable Nazi-foiling finale.

Format: Hardcover
Oh boy.. where to start...? This story basis is a great idea. A group of women during world war two form a sisterhood against Hitler and the Axis. Great idea! The problem is the women that form this group. According to this novel, it consists of not only Barbie and Ken, but Mussolini's mistress, Stalin's daughter, and even Eva Braun! When Eva Braun entered the picture, the book became so preposterous to me, I could go no further.

The heroine is Giselle, a former ballerina turned archeologist. (Beautiful, blonde, and very well endowed in the chest department AND filthy rich.) After a dig gone bad in South America, she sets out to take back the crystal skull stolen from her and avenge her lover's death. The man she is after is an SS officer for Hitler. World war two is disrupting Europe. Barbie (Giselle) hooks up with a former lover, Michel (I'm calling him Ken) and proceeds to get sidetracked on her quest by forming the all girls club and getting a decoder to England among other things. After recruiting all the above mentioned women or at least using them in some way, the story just became too implausible for me. On top of that, I grew tired of Barbie and Ken being so perfect and "ma chere" this and "ma cheri" that. I think by page 200, readers will realize that Barbie and Ken are mad about each other.

Something else I didn't like is the lack of emotions. It was like being on the outside looking in. The characters sit around and have their conversations but what are they thinking?

A good idea. It probably would have worked for me had the characters been a bit different.

Great book, It is Jim Marrs first novel, although he has written many Best selling factual books, he is an old investigative journalist, and this book is fact filled will true historical happenings that you probably never heard about. Written in the form of a novel to give license to the Authors conjecture.
A Great Read!! Robert Moore

Format: Hardcover
This book is a bunch of data thrown at you, with a poor attempt at hiding it within dialogue. What little action there is in this book is pretty good, but all in all, it's a snoozer.

I really enjoyed this book.. a bit of fiction.. a bit of fact. No wonder the author calls it faction. If you love drama.. this is the book for you.

Very good read. More here than you would have known or could have suspected. Quite a divergence from his other works but very well done.

I am one that never tires of interesting plots about the Nazi era,
The Sisterhood of the Rose is an intriging work that delves into
many twists and turns in the womens'search to resist the evils of Hitler.
A mixture of fact and fantasy, I found the plot compelling and the characters vivid.
I would highly recommend the book.
