My Review

The Messenger is the first installment of The Chronicles of the Shroud series by Stefan Allen and Jerry Sword. It is a riveting book that explores the possibilities in which the second coming of Christ will ensue. The story surrounds the search for the Shroud of Turin by the several different characters and the lives of the characters that are searching for the Shroud.

The Messenger includes everything in it to make an excellent book. The story line is enthralling and keeps the reader on the edge of their set until the very last page, and then it leaves them wanting more.  There were so many unanswered questions and so many possibilities for the characters that were left open leaving the reader wondering what would follow in the next book.

The characters are well developed and show great depth; the reader feels as if they know these characters personally. The dialog and the relationships between the characters were amazing and dynamic. The history and the location are wonderfully accurate. This aspect makes the story more believable.

If you believe in miracles and trust in science this book was written for you.  This was a wonderful first book and I cannot wait for the next installment.
