5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Misfit TOP 1000 REVIEWER on Jan. 26 2007
Format: Paperback
It was alright, reasonably entertaining, just nothing to write home and all your friends about. I did enjoy the history and scenes from southern France, but I wish the author had kept the story in the 13th century and skipped the stuff from 2005. I still haven't gotten around to reading the DaVinci code, so I can't make comparisons as other reviwers have.

If you want to read more about this period of french history, the cathars, knights templar and the grail, try Elizabeth Chadwick's Daughters of the Grail. I could not put it down. It is currently only available used in the US, but the author has recently rewritten and republished the book in the UK and is available on Amazon UK now. Hopefully it will be available in the US soon, as the used paperback is quite spendy (although worth it).

If you're set on reading this, save your money and get it from the library first. Then if you absolutely love it buy it. JMHO.

7 of 8 people found the following review helpful By J. Wagner on Nov. 29 2005
Format: Perfect Paperback
I picked up this book on the recommendation on the cover that suggests this is better than Dan Brown (DaVinci Code, Demons and Angels). While a decently told story through the eyes of two women connected to each other by divine destiny as well as blood, it simply gets too wound up on itself to be even closely believable let alone purely entertaining. Not to say this isn't a good read - because it really isn't a bad book - but to suggest this is a Dan Brown code breaker, well that's simply preposterous. I probably would have enjoyed the book better if I had been able to get out of my head the thought that this was another DaVinci Code. I think Dan Brown's gendre is quite safe for now thank you very much.
Ms Mosse is obviously well versed in historic France of the 13th century, which shows in her attempts at painting lush tapestries of that era. The problem is, I found her modern world more intriguing and entertaining than the age-old one which revolved around an almost predictable good sister vs. bad sister sibling rivalry that is found in far too many average books today.
Now - having said all this - there are some very good points to this book, the trouble is that they don't crop up until 250 pages in. It is at this point where the author effectively (finally) starts swapping back and forth between 'then' and 'now'. And when the two main stories really gel, the pace does indeed quickens as one would expect. The unfortunate thing is, that by this time, the reader finds themselves wondering whether this one is worth finishing at all. Stick with it and you will be somewhat rewarded with a bit of an action-packed climax and finish, although the ending and epilogue are a bit too much like 'happily ever after' for me along with a couple of unexplained natural events that simply didn't make sense to me at all.
Worthy of a library loan, but definately not worth a purchase.
3 stars at best.

I have some real palpable visions from the other side starting with a small wattle round hut in ancient Poland. Kate's main characters are a perfect match to some things that I have seen in my own dreams. The terrible massacre at Mt. Segur is a reflection of what many of us the living suppress as monsters hiding under our childhood beds.
Truth is stranger that fiction as I can see from her discription of the dual lives of Kate Moss'two main characters. Their lives are inter woven like they are the same person.
It is uncanny for me to wake up reciting the High mass of the Church in old high latin... Something that I have never learned in this life.
I actualy asked my mom to tell me about the worker in the cathedral of Sarum rwpairing the High Bishops carved wood chair. She brought back from England the story that it was true. I had a palpable dream of the history of The Cathedral in Sarum efore she went on a trip to England. The same with the small stone amulets of the great mother carried by many of the old religion. One of these was found in Sarum, others are found in barrows charting the expansion of the old ones from Ur to Normandy and England. One of these amulets was found amoung the items found with the Swiss Iceman.
I would definetly recommend sensitives of our time to read and consider Kate Moss' book Labryinth for insights to any readers personal papable dreams. SLW

By Mys M TOP 500 REVIEWER on April 22 2013
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Labyrinth was so captivating I could hardly put it down. It had to do with a mysterious sect of Christianity from the past and another sect that was trying to wipe them out and possess their mystical powers, centered around a labyrinth. Ms. Mosse eases into the story with a present day archaeological dig (which grabbed my attention right away) and proceeds to weave the story between characters in medieval times and their counterparts/descendents in the present. By the end of the tale, when I saw the walking tour she added at the back of the book for the real-life medieval town, Languedoc, France, where the story takes place, I knew it was a place I was going to want to visit and I knew I would want to "do the tour."

4 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Bernie Koenig TOP 500 REVIEWER on Oct. 10 2005
Format: Hardcover
Thisis a great novel which works on many levels or labyrinths. On one level it is a great adventure story. On another level it is a great historical novel. I learned more about this period in France than I ever knew. I must learn more about the Cathars.
On a third level one sees how the good old Catholic Church was an expansionist political institution which accepted no difference of opinion.
What makes this novel great is that all levels work together, which makes the historical parallels so compelling.
And there are a few great surprises along the way.
A truly satisfying book which can probably stand up to numerous re-readings.
