This novel is about the Cathars - an enlightened group of Christians who were massacred during the Albigensian Crusade in the 13th century. It tells of their treasure, transcribed in the records of the Inquisition as ''... so powerful as to transform the world ...'' and why the Vatican went to such lengths to try and possess it ... then ... and now.

I have never seen so many blatant grammatical and punctuation errors in a published book before. Whoever the publisher is they need to proofread their books before printing. It is too bad because the story is interesting and inspires you to seek out more information on the subject but sometimes it is hard to concentrate when all the errors keep popping up!
The author's first book (Past Recall) was compared to The DaVinci Code because of the story it told - a fictionalized account of the history surrounding the Cathars, Templars, Holy Grail and Mary Magdallene. But this book, which continues where the first left off (with the discovery of the Cathar treasure) surpasses both Past Recall and The DaVinci Code. It reveals a plot with a lineage that goes back hundreds of years, but is very current in its unveiling. We discover ancient codes and modern methods of deciphering their clues. The mystery involves powerful players from the Catholic Church, US politicians, DNA scientists, anthropologists and history scholars. It becomes a race against time to translate and interpret the treasure - ancient manuscripts that promise to reveal information which could bring about an enlightened world or, in the wrong hands, plunge us into Armageddon. The author's use of metaphor and poetic prose kept me turning the pages long into the night. The story line kept me thinking about the blending of historical fact and fiction and how our world would be different if we could only put into practice the truths revealed in this inspiring book.
