"The authors writing skill and the interesting plot kept me turning pages." - Long And Short Reviews

"This book has a"The DaVinci Code" feel to it, with the race against time to translate clues that relate to Biblical prophecy." "Ms. Mattison is a truly skilled author with an amazing way with words."-It's Raining Books

"Ms. Mattison has some pretty amazing writing chops. Placing you right into the story from the first page."-Straight From The Library

"Overall, 'The Tree of Jesse' is a definite must-read. Hugely enjoyable, the prose delightfully immersive and clear, and the story one that will haunt you for days after finishing it.

'The Tree of Jesse' shows Mattison at the height of the author's powers--certain, confident, breathtaking." - New York Book Pundit

    The Tree of Jesse is a fast-paced, suspenseful mystery, with a touch of romance revolving around the end of the world as prophesized by biblical scripture.  The book is a written puzzle that tasks the reader with taking the various storyline threads interwoven throughout the book and finding their connections to the major plot.  It is difficult to write a review where delving into the plot may give too much away to readers. However, there are some important aspects that I can convey regarding this book. 


    Unlike many novels that clearly distinguish the major characters from the minor ones, Mattison introduces us to numerous characters from all over the world with their own agendas, but each character plays an integral role in advancing the plot. The challenging part is figuring out how the characters are connected and the motives behind their actions.  


    The succinct chapters focusing on one or more characters and their point-of-views keeps the story moving along quickly, so much so, I found the book hard to put down at times.  Furthermore, I think the brevity of each chapter allowed me to find clues often embedded in religious symbolism and biblical allusions.  I am impressed by Mattison’s ability to provide enough detail to keep readers engrossed while not revealing too much, too soon. 


    Mattison also uses the technique of pulling the readers into a chapter that focuses on a particular character or scene only to have that chapter end and the next begin by describing a seemingly unrelated situation. At first the sometimes abrupt chapter endings and unexpected shifts of focus took me surprise. However, it didn’t take long to adapt to this style. I found myself often pausing to reflect on a chapter’s significance before moving forward. 


    When I was halfway through the book, I began to wonder how Mattison was going to be able to tie everything together by the end. Amazingly, she does so with a seamless, well-executed plot. Although there were minor proofreading errors, they were not significant enough to distract me from the read. However, I wish there were more scenes of Jesse and Mara together to really show that magnetic pull that keeps drawing them together and the deep connection they have with one another. 


    Overall, I found The Tree of Jesse to be an engaging and thought-provoking read that will stay with me for a long time.


    I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
