DA VINCI CODE LIGHT...
on 11 November 2008
This is an enjoyable, fast paced read, with an intriguing premise for a plot. Although the characters are not particularly well-developed and of the plot is highly implausible, its premise is so intriguing that the reader will find oneself turning the pages, wanting to see what happens next. It is definitely a plot driven book, centering on that fact that the Garden of Eden exists.
Jaime Richards is an army chaplain, stationed in the war zone that is modern day Iraq. While there, she is briefly united with Adara Dunbar, an old college friend. Alas, the reunion is short lived, as they are ambushed and Adara is murdered by a black robed man with violet eyes. Before dying, however, Adara gives Jaime a special message, which she entrusts Jaime to deliver. It is a message that Jaime is at a loss to understand.
Jaime then meets a stranger with a connection to Adara, who reveals the nature of Adara's mission and also some information about Jaime herself that would rock her world. Thus, Jaime becomes enmeshed in a series of strange events that propel her into the line of fire by unknown enemies who need her unique talents. Faced with matters of life or death and intrigued by the propositions put forth to her, Jaime embarks on an action-packed adventure of a life time. While the characterizations may fall short, the plot is so intriguing that I find myself looking forward to reading the sequel to this book.
