Gripping April 15 2014
By Liz Koch Cousins - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I was originally offered a free download of book one from the author. I dove in and honestly found myself REALLY ENGAGED by this book. So much so I opted in and purchased the other 2 books in the trilogy. Great sci fi, great characters. I actually care what happens to BC, and that's rare these days. Great work. :)

This starts slow, but really turns into a very interesting look at our modern world juxtaposed in the next century. I am also enjoying the entire trilogy. Worth the asking price on kindle

A good SF novel for a great price! April 17 2012
By Greg - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I picked up the first novel in the trilogy after reading the only (5 star) review. For the price, I felt I didn't have much to risk.

Overall, I'm very happy with the story and character development and have bought the two remaining books in the trilogy. I'll have more to say after I finish these as the first novel left things in a cliff hanger.

More like a 2nd draft than a finished novel April 3 2012
By Laurent C. Madeux - Published on
Format: Paperback
I really, really want to give this book more than 2 stars. The world that Luoma creates is a rich one; full of well thought out & fascinating advancements in human society & religion. And who doesn't like a good, fun secret-agent-adventure? The problem is that Luoma's writing style makes the book unreadable. The narrative is in the present tense and is told through the shifting persons. By this I mean it's sometimes (most of the time) in first person and sometimes third person. Also when it's first person, it's not always the same charater. AND the main character often has these running inner monologues describing what he's doing in the story; something that would be much better served & be much more realistic if it were in third person. If I'm walking down the street, I don't think to my self, "I'm walking on a gray side walk at a brisk pace and passing by a barber shop."

There are some minor gaffes in his understanding & depiction of the Catholic Church but they really don't detract from the over all story. The nitpicker in me just needs to point out that you can't have a Pope Peter II.

Do yourself a favor and look at the preview of the book that Amazon offers. The first four paragraphs are great establishing prose for a sci-fi adventure novel but after that it all falls apart. I really wish Luoma had tried to stick to the standard third person. The whole experience could have been so much better. This was like trying to read something Camus or Proust wrote as a teenager.

Vatican Assassin June 9 2012
By Trudi Taylor - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Very interesting series, I bought the next two then purchased the 4th stand alone novel with many of the same characters. I even bought the 3rd without reading the second which is unusual for me. The title intrigued me it seemed such an unlikely 'space' novel. A fun read.
