You never know what you are going to get when you get a freebie from the Kindle store, but Pentecost was a wonderful surprise. Yes, I thought it would be a cheap, low rate, Dan Brown type of book. However, I have to admit that I loved it. It was just as good as any Dan Brown book and I plan on reading more of the series. The plotline is original and full of adventure. I was on the edge of my seat and read the book in about 2 days. Morgan Sierra is a psychologist who specializes in religious psychology at Oxford University. She was given a stone to wear around her neck from her father and her twin sister, Faye, has her own stone given to her by their mother. Faye is kidnapped and then all hell breaks loose in Morgan's life. She gets involved with Jake Timber who works for ARKANE, a secret agency that researches and protects secrets and myths of religion and the occult. THe stones Faye and Morgan have are 2 of the 12 stones of the Pentecost. It is said that the Apostles each took a stone from the tomb from which Christ rose and that those stones were given special powers on the day of Pentecost. The 12 stones have been kept apart since the original 12 Apostles left after receiving the Holy Spirit. The stones only have their true power if they are together. Morgan and Jake travel the world to find the remaining stones to give to the maniacal Joseph Everett, who has kidnapped Faye and wants the stones to heal his brother. The story goes from there with Jake and Morgan gathering the stones while another religious group chases them. I don't want to give any more away but I have to say if you liked the DaVinci Code and books like it you will love Pentecost! I cannot wait to read the second book in the series. Go read this book! 4 stars!
