This book could be described as "The Da Vinci Code" meets "Mighty Joe Young." Fortunately this is a young adult kind of book so churches won't be making fools of themselves debunking its premise they way they did when "The Da Vinci Code" came out. Good fiction is just that - good fiction. This is one of those adventure stories that in its own way supports the idea of making judgements based on one's conscience as opposed to greed or fanaticism. It was a fun read.
