Book Review: The Paradise Prophecy

The Booklover’s Rating:  ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

This book is probably going to be a big hit this summer.  I began reading it on June 17th and finished it on June 19th.  Granted I had alot of time to read over the weekend, but I really tucked into this book.  I wasn’t sure what to think about this book when I first opened the package from the publisher.  I couldn’t decide if it was christian fiction, which I have no objection to, or was it Dan Brownish?  It is definitely the latter.  If you like a good thriller with elements of religion or esoterica this is definitely for you!  This is a genre I like, so I throughly enjoyed this book!

Agent Bernadette Callahan is an  investigator for a shadowy U. S. government organization known only as the Section.  She is sent to investigate the suspicious death of Christian Pop Star Gabriela Zuada and requests the help of religious scholar Sebastian “Batty” LaLaurie.  The action begins in Brazil and races across the globe from there.  LaLaurie and Callahan decode clues left in ancient texts from The Holy Bible to Paradise Lost.  In the course of the investigation  they stumble upon a vast conspiracy-one beyond the scope of mankind’s darkest imagination.  Robert Browne has written a terrific ending, something many authors fail to accomplish after writing a great thriller.

If you like Dan Brown’s novels, Angelology, or Javier Sierra’s novels, then pick up a copy of The Paradise Prophecy next month.  You won’t be sorry.
