I was impressed with the level of detail and the consistency of those setting details throughout the plot. Mr. Lindberg has considerable promise and talent, but really needs the guiding hand of a critical editor (at least in this book). I can't recall seeing any of the grammatical typos (i.e., those that spelling checks will not find) that seem to plague many of the unedited books I find for free on Amazon, but the final chapter of this book did change the spelling of the name of one of the peripheral characters from "Mihad" to "Mahid" and lends credence to the idea that this was added later just to bring the whole book to an end.
Generally, this was an interesting read, but Dan Brown doesn't (yet) have anything to worry about.
The Shekinah Legacy is the debut novel in the Charlotte Ansari thriller series by Gary Lindberg. The author very skillfully, and over the space of many pages, only adding to the thrill, introduces Charlotte, her son, Greg, who has Aspergers syndrome, but is a genius, but has trouble with human emotions, and her family. As Charlotte and Greg struggle to survive against incredible odds, the reader is dragged deeper and deeper into not just the mystery of the relics, but Charlotte’s history as well.
The Shekinah Legacy is a page-turner of the first rank, the perfect book to curl up with at the end of summer.
The writer made it a special point to explain that Charlotte's mother just abandoned her when she was seven years old and that Charlotte blamed her father. Granted, that seems like child logic but then for the rest of her life she never spoke to her father? And she hated him for the rest of her life? Especially since her father was supposed to be a spiritual person? This doesn't make the character more compassionate and likeable, instead it shows her to be completely uncaring and selfish.
If the reader can get past the shallow characters, good luck trying to follow the Dan Brown style of political intrigue even though all government organizations seem ridiculous and incapable of doing anything. Despite all this, at some point the reader gets a complicated story about Jesus, again, because this story just never gets old, and now everyone, literally, EVERYONE in the world is looking for something about Jesus.
Anyway, my dear readers, just save your nerves and patience. It's just worth it.
The Shekinah Legacy is a fascinating story that immediately draws the reader in with its fast-paced, fascinating storyline of drama, intrigue, suspense and adventure. The author provides the reader with an intriguing religious thriller that has a multi-faceted plot. From family drama and mystery, to a secret conspiracy in the Western Christianity community, the quest to find religious relics and long held secrets if brought to light, could rock the very foundations of the long held Western Christian beliefs. This riveting story takes the reader on an adventure with Charlotte and Greg, as their time-sensitive mission takes them globe trotting to such places as Minnesota, Washington DC, Rome, Vatican City, Iraq, India and Kashmir. With international groups (CIA, FBI, Mossad, Al Qaeda, and others) following them from location to location, murder, mystery and mayhem lies around every corner.
The historical religious conspiracy theory plot line is well researched and written in rich detail and description that engages the reader to ponder and question "what if ...". Any novel that provides a mixture of interesting facts that engages me to think with the adrenaline rush of adventure and suspense is well worth reading in my opinion.
The author has created a huge cast of characters that are realistic and complex beings, whose interactions with each other make the story that much more powerful and compelling. There were so many interesting characters introduced throughout the story, that I found myself writing down a character list so I wouldn't get confused. With that being said, I did enjoy how the author wrote the chapters in the third-person narrative with alternating perspectives from the major characters of Charlotte, Greg, Gideon, Antonio Fortunati, and William Wyatt.
The Shekinah Legacy is a gripping suspense thriller that will give the reader an adrenaline rush. With its nonstop action and mystery, this story will hold your attention and imagination and keep your pulse racing to the very end!
