Bravo and Emma Shaw are heads of the Order of Gnostic Observatines, an ancient and secret organization that keeps holy relics and documents hidden from the rest of the world, as much to protect Christianity as the artifacts themselves. Lucifer and his minions, the Fallen, led by Leviathan, are closer than ever to breaching humanity and starting the End of Days. The Gnostic Obervatines and their supernatural relics are required to stop them, as well as sacrifices and trials from the Shaw siblings. Searching for allies in the fight against the Fallen, Bravo and Emma change in powerful ways that will help steel them for the battle to come.
VERDICT Van Lustbader (The Testament) concludes his “Testament” series with this fast-paced supernatural thriller that is equal parts Indiana Jones, Robert Langdon, and Old Testament. Recommended for fans of Dan Brown and Clive Cussler.
