Thriller, suspense, action, intrigue: The Return is a story of the modern day fulfillment of the Grail prophecy.
The time has come for the prophesied return of Christ. Long thought extinct, the secret Order of Knights Templar battle the Dark Forces that fear His return.
At the center of this battle of good & evil are Sarah Davidson, an expectant mother with an unique heritage, & Peter Christos, her shipping magnate husband. The couple, who were married in the presence of the Ark of the Covenant, is confronted with a series of surreptitious schemes & attacks causing them to flee to seek a secure birthplace for their son.
They are aided in this endeavor by the Knights Templar, a clandestine organization that has, over the centuries, amassed enormous wealth & power & the organization to deliver it in anticipation of this day.
Ultimately, they engage in a grand battle for the prophesied birth.
My Review: So this book was not as bad as I originally thought it would be. So this is an interesting book about the prophecy of the return or Christ. It delves into a lot of little known prophecy of the Holy Grail and the ark and the signs of the second coming. This books is most assuredly about Good versus Evil and the return of Christ. While Geoff is taking a vacation at Jacques Chevalier's house, he finds a hidden room with book shelves lining the wall. One of the books draws his eyes and he reads some of it. This book had all kinds of claims about the knights. History said one thing, while this book is saying another. Could these Knights really be around? Or are they truly gone for good?
I tried to get through the book and see how I'd like it. Since I read that God was involved it was a bit hard for me to read it, since I don't do anything with God or some kind of religion. Though I gave it a shot since it didn't fully focus on God.
This book was not bad, but it wasn't mind blowing for me. But I feel that the readers would like the book a lot more if you like this style of genre. Also a lot of people seem to compare it to the Da Vinci Code. I'm not very sure if it's like it, there are some things that are similar and make you think it. Then you have other parts of the book that are nothing like it. So maybe you readers will find it interesting to read because of that.
In the meantime, there isn't much more for me to say, since it was a hard read for me. At least I can say that I finished the book.
