Pretty cool, when i read it, it raise a desire to keep continue to open the next age.
Although the ending was so predictable, but the writing styles takes your imagination fly high.
And the most eagerly matter are so late, the spear appear so late.

The book is entertaining and I would gladly recommend it to others, but I had a hard time liking the main character, Cotton Stone. She was a bit too whiny for my taste. Why did this bother me? Because she has already been on several adventures fighting the forces of evil, yet she hadn't truly accepted her role in the giant scheme of things. Fortunately, there's is so much going on and quite a few other strong characters that carry the story along. Will I pick up another book in the series? Yes. ...more

This is the third in a series of four. Logically, I should not like these books, as, theologically, they are the opposite of what I believe. Logic, however, is sometimes over rated. These books are fun, like a James Bond movie - and, boy, does that reference date me. The trick is to give logc a rest for a time, sit back, read, and enjoy. The books are fun. I have the fourth on my "to read" shelf.

Sort of an odd combination of fantasy (the heroine is the daughter of a fallen angel - Nephilim), and is in love with a Catholic cardinal. Put that aside, and the book deals with the basic artifact quest, plus the added war between good and evil. A little slight for my tastes, it still bears another read in the series.

Cotten Stone once again fights the forces of evil in this clever thriller featuring the biblical Spear of Destiny and a global power melt down. If you’ve ever feared a worldwide computer worm that could cause havoc everywhere, read this book. It’ll make you praise your antivirus program and hope something like this never happens for real.

Relics formed from The Tree of Life, the prince of darkness, children of archangels; what's not to like. The Hades Project is a fun mystery with a hefty biblical plot. Cotton Stone is a great heroine. I'll be reading more of these.

Leuk thema (de heilige speer) en dat is ook de reden om dit boek uit te lezen en ook het laatste deel te gaan doen.
De eindstrijd voltrekt zich in dertig bladzijden. Het is jammer dat sommige stukken niet beter zijn uitgewerkt.

I enjoyed the continuing adventures of Cotten Stone...maybe more so since the authors will be visiting my library next month. I'm looking forward to The 731 Legacy.

I love the locations, the travel, the history. I wish the book were longer! This was a fine follow up to the first two with characters I enjoyed and look forward to seeing in the next books.

Third in the Cotton Stone series. Lots of computer data but great that it has real time events in it that makes it all work. Looking forward to reading the fourth book.

Can computers destroy the world? The world may just find out if Cotten Stone cannot decide how to stop the Reds with the help of the Indigos!

This "religious" adventure story was a bit on the fantasy side for my taste. Though not to my liking, I'm sure others would likely enjoy it.

Great read. A fantastic mixture of religion and mystery. The fight of Good versus evil. Not too preachy.
