I went into this book hoping for another The Da Vinci Code. The Guardian was good, but not quite what I was looking for, not quite up to the standards I was expecting. The mystery/suspense of finding the lost scroll was really interesting, I was just hoping for a little more historical/religious facts. I did like the intrigue surrounding the Pope and his Cardinals. I actually felt a little sad to think that such corruption exists. I hope it is not like that in real life.

The writing style of the book reminded me of the Left Behind series. At times the dialog seemed a little forced. The characters I was most intrigued by were Hale and the rest of the airplane flight crew. I would have like to seen more of them in the book. I felt the budding romance between Anna and Jason was a little too expected. They both seemed like people who had not had a lot of life experience, and at times their naivety was annoying.

The book was good, but not great. I am glad that I got a free copy of this.

I received this book for free through the goodreads first reads program.
