And then I read a book like THE GUARDIAN and I wonder if THAT'S just fiction. How did this book make it to print.
OK the story is interesting...the trigger events to Jesus' return....an interesting speculation....but the writing is horrible--reminiscent of freshmen (high school freshmen, that is) creative writing. There ...more
When I began reading, I first became worried that it was going to be amd extremist Christian novel. But then it hooked me and was a very excellent adventure story in vein of The DaVinci Code. There was a good cast of characters, mystery, chases, evil trying to take over the world.
Then the book took another turn and I became a bit worried when they brought in the Baptist missionar ...more

(We received this book free of charge in exchange for an honest review.)
This book reminded me strongly of The DaVinci Code, except I actually enjoyed this book. A lot.
I loved the "historical" aspect of this entire story. John the Disciple is given a scroll (rather, he pukes it up) from God and has to protect it. It thus passes down John the Disciple's descendants and they spend their lives guarding the scroll.
Anna is next in line to protect the scroll ( ...more

This story is full of actions, running from one place to another. After Anna had accepted the duty from her grandfather, to complete the task from God, her life was no longer same. Within few days, she had to run away from the bad people and witnessed death, and more death along the journey. She learnt to trust and have faith in God ...more
This book was not what I expected. It was better. So much better.
With all the 'scroll', 'end times' and 'bible code' books floating around these days, I told myself this novel was probably going to be just another one of the cheap, bad Da Vinci code knockoffs, except with a Christian spin...
Hah! I'm now eating my words and they are delicious!
This book is similar to the Da Vinci code in that, there is a mystery to be solved, bad people to run from, action, international chases, and thrills g ...more

The catholic church has been searching for the scroll of John and for years the Pope has been supporting those in discovering it's where abouts. When Cardinal Vin gets in touch with Anna and calls her to finish what her gra ...more
How very much I want to say that this is an excellent read, but I just can't. The story, itself, is terrific. The writing is, at times, very mediocre. Just when you begin to believe in a character, the writer(s) takes the character completely out of character. It's frustrating.
One can also tell where one of the writers took over the writing from another. One of the two is pretty talented.
