I received a copy of THE SACRED CIPHER by Terry Brennan from Kregel in exchange for an honest review. It is the first installment of the Jerusalem Prophesies series. I have had the pleasure of reading the other books in this series – alas, I wish I had read them in order – and have greatly enjoyed the series. I am a huge fan of history, and this series is full of it, along with Christian principles and unforgettable characters.
This book will keep you on the edge of your seat with nonstop action. Whenever you think there is going to be a lull, think again. WHAM! More danger and adventure. Your head starts to spin, but in a great way. This book is a treat to read. Something I really enjoyed about the fast pace was the imagery. Sometimes fast books lack description, but I could everything perfectly within THE SACRED CIPHER.
I don’t want to give too much away plot-wise. Tom Bahonnon is out to research a mysterious scroll. Throw in a vivid cast of characters. This is truly a winner. I recommend this to history lovers, and although it is Christian fiction, I don’t feel you need that background to enjoy it.
