historians have speculated that the Queen of Sheba is nothing more than a
seductive legend; but when undercover agent Omar Zagouri finds a tomb
in a tunnel beneath Jerusalem, he unearths cryptic clues that may lead
to the queen’s final resting place.
This discovery, if authentic,
could throw into question the governmental claim to the Holy Land—and
prove the Bible false. Wealthy collectors, ruthless archaeologists, and
officials from Egypt, Ethiopia, Israel, and Yemen scramble to find and
lay claim to the secret site.
Dr. Richard Lyon of Brown
University, the world’s leading expert on the queen, is found murdered
in his office, setting off a chain of deadly events. Omar desperately
works to piece together the puzzle to locate the queen’s burial ground,
fearing another assassination will take place. He teams up with one of
Lyon’s protégées as well as with his ex-girlfriend, agent Mia Golding,
in order to unravel the truth about the queen, expose a murderer, and
reveal a timeless story of love, revenge, and sacrifice.
My Review :
At first, I was disappointed.
I was thinking that this book was a waste of my time. I was confused and I was 70% sure I would not finish the book.
this is one of the reasons why I give it three stars. It was
confusing at the beginning and I didn’t like jumping around timelines
in the first chapters. I got used to it and went on to read the rest of
it, which is an unexpectedly great story, if you focus on the historical
fiction/adventure part of the book.
I liked the way the surprises came and the way our characters’ thoughts were becoming actions.
cannot say much, without spoiling all the fun, but if you manage to get
past the first chapters (and I urge you to!!!), you have a very good
But, when it came to the heroes’ characters, I was
completely let down. That’s the second reason why I gave 3 stars. They
were not developed enough and sometimes immature, for what they were
supposed to be doing.
I received an ecopy through NetGalley, in exchange of my honest opinion. ~ Kiki
