Grabs you from the start and finishes strong but it lagged a bit in the middle when they get bogged down in religious research and legend. Once it moves towards the climax though it draws you back in with crazy action, twists and lots of gore. Visualizing this one was tough. Intrigued me enough to watch for the second in the series.
