Do you love books? Do you love the history and mystery about rare, antique books? Are you intrigued by the stories of the lives surrounding these historical books?

You will not be disappointed in Matt Bronleewe's debut novel Illuminated: An August Adams Adventure .

The story is based on the illustrative artwork printed on the borders of the Gutenberg Bible.

August Adams, an antique book dealer and expert in his field, is thrust into an adventure that threatens his life and the life of his family.

This is a suspense novel that will have you searching out all the history and organizations listed, adding greatly to the intrigue of the story. If you enjoyed the movie National Treasure, you will love this book.

Filled to the brim with little known facts, clues and nuances, and interesting bit and pieces of the first bibles ever printed - this is a great read. Pick it up for a few hours of very Illuminated reading, but keep your laptop handy. You will want to study more of the characters and history mentioned.

I recommend this book highly and look forward to reading more of Bronleewe's work.
