This book had me from the very first page It is full of mystery, history, suspense, and conspiracies I had a little trouble at first keeping the characters separated, but as the story goes on it is a lot easier to keep them sorted I love that it had me constantly guessing who could and could not be trusted Being a person with a great interest in history and an archaeologist in training I really appreciated the research The main character Aiden is totally likable My most favorite part about this [...]

A world of the ultra rich, ultra intellectual, law enforcement of the highest caliber, secret societies and Angels A murder, a chaotic scene, the pieces start to fall into place and you are hooked This is a well crafted adventure full of factual information on ancient texts, law enforcement techniques, the city of Chicago and Angels It gets somewhat weighty in all the scriptural references and puts forth an argument that may not sit well with a traditional Christian who does not wish to hear con [...]

I could not put it down Seriously Suspense is one of the books greatest traits Intelligent entertainment is another ability the author has down to a fine art I checked several times and found out that he knows his business So two out of three is not bad This leaves you with the one disappointment I couldn t come to terms with I just didn t feel the protagonists They stayed pretty much in the shadows like Sariel and Helel, two guys I would have loved to learn about Although the author described [...]
Free copy provided by author in exchange for an honest review This is an interesting story full of conspiracy theories What I liked most about this story was that it kept you guessing till the end as to what would happen It is full of people double crossing each other for their own benefits and you just cannot trust one person They ll try to help you one moment and then try to kill you the next So, yeah, a lot of betrayals I love them The flow of the writing in this one is free and methodical No [...]

Note I received this book from the author for a non biased review through booktasters.This book reminded me of The DaVinci Code by Dan Brown but was much complex if that is even possible It had a lot of detail from religious history throughout the novel As a religious studies minor, I found it interesting to see how the author connected content during the time of Jesus and during early church history At times, I found the novel a bit difficult to follow with all the detailed information The aut [...]

If you loved The DaVinci Code by Dan Brown, then The Secret of Heaven by Felix Alexander is a must read Along similar lines, Aiden Leonardo, a scholar of biblical studies, is implicated in a murder and thrust into an underworld of deep rooted religious cults I was a big fan of The DaVinci Code, and the similarities in plot line are what initially attracted me to The Secret of Heaven While the story is entirely separate and different, I also appreciated that Alexander referred to Professor Langdo [...]
One of the best books on mythology that I ve read so far While most other such books start out with boring descriptions and long histories, the author Felix Alexander has certainly skilfully weaved it together with an interesting storyline and great action.Some characters were there who struck me as a little artificial, but Aiden captured my heart from the very beginning He s portrayed in such a way that you can t help but sympathise with his worries and clap during his triumphs As this book s n [...]
Since I enjoy Dan Brown s novels, I decided to try this one Throughout most of the book, it s unclear what characters are on the evil or good side, and this only becomes clear near the end of the book Lorenzo de Medici can seem very calculating and abrupt at times There were a lot of times when you re unsure of who is trustworthy and who s not I also enjoyed reading about some of the advanced technology in this novel Some of the information in this novel was a little confusing to follow I got a [...]

Fantastic I was given this book for free for an honest review and I could not have been thrilled The characters and storyline are engaging and kept me reading for hours at a time The few minor grammatical errors are irrelevant when the story is so compelling This is a must read for anyone who likes conspiracy theory and secret society novels I will definitely be looking for by Felix Alexander.
High adventure, extremely well written, this story was a real pleasure to read and I will most certainly be looking for from this author If you are looking for a thriller to while away your weekend choose this one I am pleased to have been offered a chance to read this book.
Awesome read This book got me caught up from the very beginning A man is murdered and leaves behind a mysterious letter about a hidden biblical book that could change the world s view on God Aiden jumps into the search not knowing what he s getting himself and friends into.
Review of The Secret of Heaven This is book is about the search for the Lost Bible which contains the gospel of Barnabus This is said to be the only the gospel written by a disciple of Jesus to be omitted form the Bible This book starts off with a bang as Aiden Leonard witnesses the murder of Lazzoro It s a very interesting book that centers around several characters and a mysterious group searching for the Lost Bible and the effects tells no the world the truth contained in it will have It foll [...]
Note to the reader of this review I was asked to write a review of this book by a third party and am not being paid to do so I hope this is useful.When I first sat down to read this book, I was quite excited I had seen positive reviews and plot sounded interesting However, having now completed the book, I can see my excitement was misplaced The story follows Aiden Leonardo as he tries to recover his memories after his mentor is killed and he is blamed for the crime, forcing him to go on the run [...]
Complex but excitingFrom chapter 1 until the very end, intrigue and mystery, surrounded by religious belief So many wheels turning with an added angelic twist Reminded me of a Dr Langdon adventure Would recommend for anyone interested in religious or biblical history.
I was asked to review this book by Booktasters in exchange for an honest review I was excited to read The Secret of Heaven, which is the first book in the Aiden Leonardo series, as it sounded rather Dan Brown esque I was left satisfied with a few little hints of disappointment which I just can not seem to shift.My first disappointment with this book was the overuse of the word incredulously which features a total of 32 times throughout the whole book I m not normally one to complain about the us [...]

Above all, I give this book four stars I did enjoy reading this book, but I honestly lost interest for a couple of weeks I did stop reading for the month of July after having started this book But it s not because this book was a bad read, I just happened to be busier than usual I have a couple of things going on in my life right now, so it was taking up all of my free time But I digress This book had a Da Vinici Code and Angels and Demons feel to it So if you really liked those books by Dan Bro [...]
