Overview

We have the technology to clone human beings.
But do we have the right?

We have the ability to play God.
But what if we could clone God?

We can...
And already did.

An ancient prophecy predicts a dire future as past and present intertwine into a deadly dance of power with mankind as the ultimate pawn.

Jane Hunt, author of Dragon Legacy:

A supernatural event occurs at an Italian monastery in 1046 which starts a chain of events destined to affect the future of humanity. 'The Shroud' is a fast paced apocalyptic thriller with strong elements of horror and suspense.

They say the road to hell is paved with good intentions and that is the premise behind this cautionary tale. Fast forward to the 20th century when the ability to clone a human being exists. A group of well-meaning but sadly misguided priests and nuns persuade a genetic scientist with dubious morals to clone Jesus Christ.

'The Shroud' explores interesting themes. Full of plot twists and a cast of characters all with their unique parts to play in the drama that unfolds. Historical flashbacks provide clues to the mystery which I liked. Well written supernatural elements ensure a unique take on a much written about theme it definitely brings something new to the table.

Full of vivid imagery and explosive action this is a recommended nail-biting read.

    The ancient shroud of Turin, a shroud that is supposedly the dea

    The ancient shroud of Turin, a shroud that is supposedly the death cloth for Jesus, the son of God is being used by Monks and Priests in a hope to regain the religious foothold in the World. The scientific world has progressed to such a point that cloning is not only possible, but available to those with enough money.

    The problem with cloning is that no one really knows what will happen, especially when a being of such power and reverence as Jesus is cloned. When a child is raised it is not just nature but also nurture. Environment also plays a very large role. The world that the first Jesus grew up in was vastly different than the world where priests decided to clone the second coming.

    Well a lot can go wrong, and in this book pretty much all of it went bad. Jesus reincarnate or Christian in this book is not what the Priests had hoped for, in fact he uses his power for much more nefarious deeds. Really Really nefarious deeds.

    While a good premise, the formatting and length really killed it for me. Each line is separated by a line which may be standard in poetry or a play, but for a book it made an already long book much much longer. There was also a lot of verbose language that would have been edited to ensure a more concise and shortened book. Overall the issues overtook the good points for me at least. Just to be clear, the religious overtones and overall plot of the story was good, and this did not affect my negativity. I say this because some may consider this book blasphemous, but I am not one of those people.

    The Shroud by David Moore is a roller coaster ride from the firs

    The Shroud by David Moore is a roller coaster ride from the first page to the last.  The story goes back and forth in time so the reader is given previous history when needed.  Mr. Moore does this with ease and the story flows.




    The story is about the cloning of Christ to cause the 2nd coming.  This is where the shroud comes in to play.  At the heart of the plan is a Priest, who does recognize his error.  Christian, the clone, is not at all what was expected.




    The Shroud takes us on a journey that opens up man's temptation, fears and the concept of hell.  Christian also tells the reader why he does what he does.




    You will be left hanging until the last minute to find out what happens.  Can't wait to read the second book.  




    Excellent read!
