At first I thought this was a Dan Brown ripoff, but then the action flipped back to the 9th Century and I was hooked. A great storyline, a good ending. A real page turner.

HASH(0x9ca67438) von 5 Sternen Entertaining Read 9. Februar 2013
Von CindyL - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I was given a copy of this novel, for an honest review, thank you.
Let me start off by saying that I really enjoyed this novel, but it does require an open mind. There are many religious and political views covered throughout this story that not everyone will agree with. However with that said, this is a work of fiction and the author did an excellent job incorporating all these different views respectfully and for me it was very educational and entertaining.
The main focus of the story centers around an ancient prayer book called a Psalter. It is discovered in modern day, in the library of the Vatican. The discovery of this book sets off a chain of events which leads the reader down a path of murder, betrayal, and revelation. Not only do we see how this Psalter affects the characters in the present, the reader is also taken back through time to where the Psalter first appeared and the many sacrifices these people went through to preserve the secrets the Psalter holds.
For me I enjoyed the historical part of this story more than the present, but that is because I'm a history buff and I really don't know much about religious history so this was something new for me. The author did a fantastic job making these characters come to life and I could tell that he did his research. I was pulled into their world filled with turmoil and their quest to discover the truth. Not just the truth behind ancient scrolls and writings but the truth in their own hearts and their beliefs.
My only complaint would be that I wanted to learn more about Father Mike. I feel there were some unresolved issues with him that I would have liked to have answers too. Maybe there is a sequel??
The Psalter was a solid read and I would recommend this book to anyone with an open mind and a thirst for a good mystery. The characters are wonderful and the story is daring and intriguing. I hope to see more from this author in the future.

HASH(0x9c99d744) von 5 Sternen A Dubious Disciple Book Review 23. Januar 2013
Von Dubious Disciple - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Hey, this is a fun one!

Let's start with the basics. A psalter doesn't psing psongs door-to-door, nor does it dispense psalt and pepper. A psalter is a devotional book of psalms.

This particular psalter is over 1,000 years old. Nay, nearly 2,000 years old, for in in the ninth century, it was written over the words of a first-century heretical gospel ... a copy of the Book of Thomas the Contender from the Ebionites ... as a means of secretly preserving the words of an original apostle. The story takes place half in the ninth century and half in the twenty-first century, when the original gospel is finally restored. It's a thriller that escalates in both story lines to an unexpected finish.

This is a Da Vinci Code twin, complete with a Vatican setting and a few jabs at the Church, but without the sensationalism. The conversation is well-written; it draws you into the era. It's fiction, but well-researched and plausible beneath the story-telling surface.

Definitely recommended.

HASH(0x9ca7796c) von 5 Sternen Unusual Book 9. Juni 2013
Von Dorothy - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
For a first novel, I applaud this author! I hope we will be hearing more from him in the near future.

Okay, a little confession here. I am a 66 year old Roman Catholic and since I am older than sin, I was brought up with the Latin Mass and I seriously miss the old ways. This should tell you where my mind set is at as to religion. Despite the author's warning of: "*Untraditional Christianity Warning", I chose to read this book anyway and to try and do so with an open mind. I feel I have lived up to that promise. I am not sorry I read it.

Of course, as with any work of historical fiction, it is sometimes difficult to tell which is truth and which is fiction. So, I have worked my own little truth sorter out here. What things I can say I remember reading about, or hearing, is truth. Anything else is fiction. (Until I am told otherwise.)

I find this book to be well written and well put together. I have enjoyed how the author will write about what happened so many years ago, and then come into the present years and write about that. It is sort of like, well this is what is going on now,and this event in the past (and then he tells of it) is why it does go on. The story is well detailed, well organized, and easy to read despite going from past to present so many times. For this last part, kudos to the author as it is not an easy task to write like that.

The Catholic Church, to say the least, has a well checkered past. When the author writes the early Church was about power and greed, or sometimes corruption, he is quite right.

The part of the story about the Third Secret being divulged... I don't remember hearing about the Pope fainting, but will tell what i know. The Pope was to open the secret and let everyone know what it said. He opened it and never said a word. I do know that the Pope went into seclusion after opening it though. Frightening to me. How about you all?

The Psalter, in this story at least, is a medieval prayer book. It is an Irish prophecy of the last Pope, and a forgery that changed the Church forever.

Father Paul Michael Romano is an American priest and is the Church's senior paleographer and an expert in ancient manuscripts. Father Romano has run up against modern inquisitors before, but this time, it leads to a medieval manuscript and murder.

Father Romano's examinations lead him to uncover a historical narrative of medieval forgeries. Was the Church trying to hide things? Was the Church trying to preserve manuscripts and secrets? Father Romano has become a target for those who would stop at nothing to possess the secret of the Psalter.

The characters in this book are well written and detailed. The portrayal of the Saracens, today we call them Muslims, is so true to what we have heard today that it couldn't get any more accurate. Father Romano himself is totally believable.

I do recommend this book highly even for Catholics if you can read it with an open mind. There is nothing in the book which is a disgrace to the Church, or to God. There really have been problems in the Church and, thank God, most of the problems were fixed until the 1960's when things started getting bad again. Maybe we need another Father Romano?

HASH(0x9ca77f9c) von 5 Sternen Loved this religious thriller. 7. März 2013
Von JSC - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
This was a great read. Religious thrillers are my guilty pleasure, and this one was satisfying. The novel has two storylines: the present day manhunt for a missing Psalter, and the compelling history of how the Psalter came to be. Even though I was aware of some of the history, it didn't take away from the suspense and pleasure of reading the story. I recommend it.

HASH(0x9c99db94) von 5 Sternen damn entertaining! 28. Dezember 2012
Von mr. critic - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
What a fun read! Like Dan Brown, but smarter. I liked this book because I like religious/historical fictions that are just as much of a thriller and a mystery as a lesson in history.
This book does both extremely well, I'd definitely recommend it.
