THE PRIEST'S SECRET - Book 2 of the TOMB, the TEMPLE, the TREASURE
REVIEW"An exciting action adventure that took me to many places I would have liked to explore. The final chapter is one of the best I have read. Buy it, read it, enjoy it." (cosmo lit)"I had been looking forward to the second installment of the Tomb, the Temple, the Treasure for some time now since reading Beginnings, which I thoroughly enjoyed.So when I received the review copy I began reading it at the first opportunity.From the first chapter I was hooked and found it difficult to stop turning the pages.Ben's easy writing style I first encountered in Beginnings, continues in this second installment to make for an effortless read. The locations are atmospheric. The characters are interesting. The story thrilling and well written. The ending was completely unexpected, which I found enormously satisfying. My only criticism of the Priest's Secret is that it concluded the story. I would have liked it to continue but perhaps that is just me being selfish. An excellent novel that I have no qualms about recommending."
