The story has more merits than demerits. As mentioned, it's exciting; I found myself anticipating my lunch hour, when I could tuck myself away with my food and my kindle. It's like a travel blog, though I have yet to confirm if the places where Jack and Esperanza have been are all real ones and not just fiction. Substantial and appropriate descriptions served as introduction whenever they set foot on a new city or country, one can imagine actually being there with them. The story flowed very well though I couldn't imagine a reality of such a travel itinerary that goes well beyond bone-tiring, terrifying, death-defying.
The plot followed the archaeological quest of Dr. Jack Hawthorne for the bones of the Prophet Elisha, said to have powers to raise the dead or heal the sick if touched. As edge-of-the-seat as it can get, and though I realize the risks of any dig such as this one, I just couldn't get over the too many deaths that happened.
Still, it was an enjoyable read, and I'm glad I did not give up.
Well written and edited. Strong characters and it was fun to have an Aussie as one of the central bad guys.
A toned down and more believable version of Indian Jones or Lara Croft. Possibly more enjoyable because it's more probable.
Very well written especially for a first novel. I'm most interested to see if book two which I'm about to read manages the same high standard.
My only other complaint is that the kindle version has formatting issues. Where a double return would be used to indicate the story line is skipping to an different point in time, the formatting creates the effect of making all of the text one continuous piece. Most of the skips become fairly obvious within a couple of sentences, but it's annoying enough that I went back and re-read then with the different intention of now knowing they were a different line of the story. Small issue, but irritating.
