The Brotherhood Conspiracy by Terry Brennan
The Brotherhood Conspiracy
Tom Bohannon's discovery of an ancient scroll led him on an international adventure and through mysteries of faith and politics, ending in a place not even he could imagine: the Third Temple of God hidden under Temple Mount in Jerusalem. But soon after his remarkable discovery, the future of the world changed again. Tom watched as a chasm tore apart Temple Mount, as new rivers swept through the Kidron Valley and into the streets of Old Jerusalem, their discovery swallowed by an earthquake, crushed under tons of stone and debris. A biblical prophecy realized. The final days were upon them.
Wondering how to recover from such a momentous find and such horrendous destruction, Tom's adventures are not over. No one knows how much time is left in these last days--a year? A hundred years? A thousand? Plagued by murderous dreams, Tom fears members of the Prophet Guard--killers who wear the Coptic cross with a lightning bolt slashing through it--are back and looking for him. But they are not the only threat to Tom and his team. Forces behind the Arab Spring have sinister plans. And underestimating their determination would be a fatal mistake.
The same fast-paced, page-turning prose that readers loved in The Sacred Cipher is back in Terry Brennan's eagerly awaited sequel, The Brotherhood Conspiracy.
My Take: This was an exciting book. It was almost non stop action. I would definitely suggest that you read the first in the series because I didn't read the first and was a bit lost until I figured things out. This book reminded me of another series that I read that used Christian archaeologist
to find Biblical Artifacts. I was really interested in the way they went about decoding things. I liked the could happen today sort of feel that this book had.
I received a review copy of this book for my honest opinion from Kregel Publications.
