October 8, 2013: Unghhh... If anything, this book has piqued my interest with regard to finding out more about the Yezidis as a people. Mostly, I feel this book tries to do too much. Lots and lots of exposition.

Freemasonry certainly provides a fascinating theme to treat in fiction, and it’s clear that Churton is knowledgeable about his subject. Equally fascinating is the Yezidi tribe – an ancient culture predating Islam that has often faced persecution – and it’s obvious Churto...more
A well thought out book that I would recommend.
It does want to go in several directions at one time, but that's the beauty of the plot. A lot of foreign names to try to keep track of, but it all boils down to one mitigating factor. We're all brothers/sisters under the skin.
I struggled through this book and the story seems to have something missing in the story but i'm not sure what. I liked the Toby Ash character and if there's a follow up book maybe we will see his character built apon.

This book seems to want to go ten directions at once, so it didn't keep my

I tried to "get into" this book, but I just couldn't find it interesting. It was an interesting concept, but the pacing seemed to drag. I got to about 100 pages in, but couldn't make myself go any further.
After reading over 200 pages, I still didn't understand what was going on. Too many sub plots and not much connection.

Couldn't get into this book and that takes a lot of doing gave up about a fifth of the way through
