Publisher Description

A female scientist races to save the world using prophecies from before Christ’s time in this thriller by the New York Times–bestselling author of The Eight.
 
In the last week of Jesus’s life, the Emperor Augustus orders the purge of all prophecies that question his divine power. Thus, in the crater of a dormant volcano, the books of the Sibylline oracle are sealed—lost to the world until the nineteenth century when Clio, a brilliant archaeologist, discovers them. The Sibyl’s words remain as potent as ever, having the ability to change the destiny of mankind. But who will be bold enough to harness their power?
 
More than a century after their discovery, some of the secret prophecies fall into the hands of nuclear scientist Ariel Behn when her beloved cousin is assassinated. If Ariel can discover the mystery behind the prophecies, she will be able to prevent a potentially worldwide catastrophe—but in order to do so she must travel to Russia, Vienna, and Paris where too many people are desperate to protect the secrets of these ancient writings.
 
This ebook features an illustrated biography of Katherine Neville including rare images from her life and travels.

Good effort

I read this all the way through in spite of some issues, which speaks to the author's ability to build suspense; a talent in genre fiction. That said, this book contains so much historical information, thrown out by so many different characters, the plot line isn't a joy to follow. It's obvious this is a very well read, intelligent writer, but definitely could benefit from some restraint and streamlining. I like the idea of including connections to historical pasts by creating scenes in said past, but this book does so in a way that feels disjointed, and again at times hard to follow. Finally, the voice feels as if it's written beneath the author's real intelligence level. Dialogue feels cliched and juvenile at times. BUT good effort for an ambitious project. And I'd read another book Neville, just not right away.
