On his travels Langdon has to delve into the secrets of the masons a hidden history all of these secrets seem to be pointing to one place maybe Peter’s location.
This book really drew me in especially with the villain Malak. He’s suave, kind, knowledgeable, sophisticated, handsome, rich, ladies man the list could go on. Then on the other side he’s a tattooed buff guy who walks around in a loin cloth being a murderer, kidnapping sociopath who wants the secrets of the masons for his own gain. He’s covered in head to toe with tattoos except a circle on the top of his head. He needs something to cover it with but you should read the book to find that out.
I really enjoyed this book especially the masons facts as I didn’t know much about them and my Grandad used to be a freemason. Also the villain in this book is probably my favourite character. I was kind of rooting for him at some points then realised I’m not a villian 😂. Langdon also has his female fatale side kick who also happens to be Peter’s sister. She’s also a scientist and working on Noetic science (I didn’t want to make a big blog so you might have to Google bit😉) she helps Langdon throughout and learns what her brother knows.
All in all if you like Dan Brown books then you will enjoy this book. I enjoy them as every chapter your learning something new. I would give this book a 4.5/5
There’s a bit of violence in this book and some sexual references but nothing to graphic.
