In order to review the book thoroughly, I decided to buy the first book in the series and read it first, then follow immediately with this book. It probably would have been better if I hadn't.

On 11/14 catwoman522 wrote: I'm not going to lie to you, this is a very hard book to read. When I say that, I don't mean the actual writing style.

Chasing Francis

On 8/15 catwoman522 wrote: Before reading this book I knew nothing about Saint Francis of Assisi or about the Franciscan order of monks. I now know a lot more. In terms of format, the book reads more like a memoir than a fictional story. Sometimes while reading I forgot that Chase Falson is not a real person. I thought Cron did ...

A Matter of Trust

On 6/13 catwoman522 wrote: I loved Lis Wiehl's earlier Triple Threat series. But I love this book even more. Wiehl does a great job of capturing all sides of the central character.

The book of Daniel in the Bible, which records most of what we know about King N, is one of my favorites so I was excited to see what this author had come up with. I ...
