Excuse the pun, but this review is way late. I apologize for that, and here it is.
ABOUT THE BOOK
Buried near Italy's Mount Vesuvius is a remarkable observatory containing artifacts dating to the earliest record of human events. Only one person-the Getty Museum's Amanda James-can unlock the mysterious doors that guard the chamber.
But once inside, Amanda is shocked to discover evidence left behind by a notorious biblical killer-who long ago wandered off the pages of history.
The first novel of a series, WaywardSon takes the reader on an amazing voyage, where epic adventures in Egypt, Greece, China and Rome collide with modern-day intrigue and suspense.
What a surprise this book was for me...totally unexpected. The book follows Cain through an immortal life following God's curse (an interesting speculation, albeit one that I do not believe!) He stows away on Noah's Ark and survives the great flood, then lives on through the decades. We see Cain through various big events in history, which I found interesting. I do like historical fiction. I also like stories about archaeological discoveries, and this was quite a discovery!
With quality writing, these authors deliver a unique story that is fun to read--remembering it is fiction. The characters are well-developed, and the plot is fast-paced. This book is the first in a series. I wonder where the next one will take us!
I received this book from LeAnn Hambly and GlassRoads PR in exchange for my honest review.
