it was amazing

I received a free copy of VanOps: The Lost Power by Avanti Centrae for reviewing purposes.

This is a great read. Three people—fraternal twins Maddy and Will and their friend Bear—race around the world trying to figure out a family mystery related to Maddy and Will’s family story. As relatives of the Spanish royal family, they are charged to find an ancient weapon than an ancestor grabbed from the Moors in the eleventh century—a weapon the Russians desperately want. This journey takes them to castles in Spain, Dome of the Rock in Jerusalem, Lithuania, a monastery in Myanmar, and pyramids in Egypt.

Maddy is the action hero in the story. She is athletic and fearless and recently became unengaged, but she seems more angry than heartbroken. Her brother, Will, is the intellectual and the keeper of the more human emotions of doubt and fear. His wife was killed at the beginning of the adventure, but he hasn’t had a chance to mourn. Bear is the history nerd. Having Bear around was great. Instead of reading dry text about the history of the various sites, Bear explained historical facts with a conversational tone. Plus he has had a crush on Maddy for years. Plus he has a secret of his own.

All along the way other characters drop in and out of the story, and the reader gets to learn more about what makes Maddy, Will, and Bear tick. I highly recommend this book to anyone who likes adventure stories with lots of travel.
