What if they were right?
The first time Dr. Cait Monahan ever heard of the Spear of Longinus was the night her husband was murdered because of it. That was when the terror began.
…right before the U.S. Government, the CIA, Neo Nazis, the Vatican and a secret cabal of 13 powerful global manipulators sent their assassins after her and her 9 year old.
...just before a lethal secret propelled her across Europe following a riddle that hadn’t been solved since the Holocaust.
…just before Cait Monahan became entrapped in an interdimensional labyrinth that her own husband may have helped design.
Now she’s a player in a game that has led to mystery, magic, mayhem and murder for over 2000 years, and only the help of a tribunal of long dead men may be able to save her.
Vibrant and cerebral, filled with intrigue, Conspiracy Theory and more ancient secrets than the Dead Sea Scrolls, Lark’s Labyrinth pits characters you’ll care about against a mystery you’ll want to solve.
Inside Lark’s Labyrinth is a secret men have killed for …now a woman, her sister, her child and their small band of friends are all that stand between us and the dark, insidious power that’s a hairsbreadth away from ruling the world.
My review: Wow. I am blown away by this book! So much detail, so many richly developed characters. While there are mystical elements throughout, the story felt so real to me; I could actually believe that the spear truly exists and these groups, of both honorable men and women and the worst criminals of the world, are out to get it. Like its title, Lark's Labyrinth is a twisted maze of plot turns, and the way the chapters move between the small groups of characters and their involvement in the search is very well done. I could see this as a movie, and it read like that in my mind. My heart broke for Cait and Lark and the situation they were thrown into, but Ms. Spellman does not leave us to dwell in our sorrow, rather, she expertly draws us into a layered, action packed adventure that will leave your mind spinning long after the last page is read. A solid 4.5 stars out of 5 from me.
