About the Book
 
While cataloging looted antiquities in Brussels, archaeologist Grace Madison discovers that her daughter has vanished in France, and her son's bride has been attacked in Switzerland. After the Madisons unearth a relic whose taproot pierces the Ancient Near East, they realize that before they can save themselves, the must rescue an old friend. If he'll let them.

They sacrifice hearts and lives in a race against eternity on a four-thousand-year-old trail crossing three continents.

Because choosing what's right is all that's left. (Goodreads)




My Review

I really should have read the first book in this series. I felt a disconnect with the characters and that's really my own fault of not reading the first book. The overall idea of the story line is intense and there is A LOT going on. I was really confused at first because the story jumps around from people to place. It was hard for me to follow and honestly it was really hard for me to finish this book. I don't know if it's the way it's written or if it was simply me not getting into the story line. I have read good things about this author so I know others will really enjoy this book. It just wasn't the book for me. 


"I received this book from Litfuse for free in exchange for an honest review."

I do really appreciate you reading it, and hope that you have the chance to join archaeologist Grace Madison in either When Camels Fly, or the third book, which I'm writing now. Thank you for sharing the work, and your thoughts, with your readers, NLBH
