If you liked the "DaVinci Code" and "Angels and Demons" you'll like this book as well. Once I began reading this book I couldn't put it down. It contains mystery, adventure and light romance. The story flows nicely, it is written well.

I enjoyed reading this book, although it is somewhat of a Dan Brown wannabe. Remember that as you read on. The plot is pleasant in that it moves gracefully, though not intensely, from London to Cairo to the Egyptian desert, as a woman researches her father's death and his life's work. Anyone familiar with the Nag Hammadi texts will find little new in the interpretation given here. The romantic secondary plot involving brothers with whom the protagonist interacts has a good twist or two. On the whole, it is worth reading. The author seemed to stick to actual historical facts well where necessary and I give her credit for that.

Good book fiction sprinkled with facts just the way I like my fiction. Ive often wondered about the Gnostic gospels and this was a way to learn a little about them in an inoffensive way. I would recommend this book to anyone who has an interest in the roots of Christianity as well as the many stories left OUT of the bible. The ending might leave some wanting more though (sequel?)
