Book Review: The Solomon Scroll by Alex Lukeman


The Solomon Scroll is the 10th book in The Project series by Alex Lukeman. The pace is intense and the story keeps moving very well. The team is back together and this time they get to evaluate a possible new member while also saving the world and extracting revenge on their attackers. Edge of your seat thrills are following in this installment, so get ready!

The contents of a two thousand year old scroll set in motion a deadly quest for the tomb of Solomon and the long lost treasure of the Second Jewish Temple. The Project team is up against a madman who believes he is the last high priest of an ancient and cruel god. He seeks the Seal of Solomon and the mystical powers he's sure it will bring him. He'll stop at nothing to get what he wants, including murder and treachery. 
From the streets of Beirut to the barrens of Saudi Arabia and the wild canyons of Ethiopia, the Project team follows an ancient trail of clues in search of Solomon's bones and the sacred heritage of a nation.
The Solomon Scroll flowed well and the pace is fast as the team travels all over the world. It was great to see new introductory characters in Diego and Eggleston as well. It would be nice to get to see more of the team on a more personal level so we get a bit more depth to some of the story, though. I didn't feel as bad for Stephanie as I thought I should and I felt that the teams "revenge" wasn't worked on enough. It just felt that something was missing in that portion. I must say "Thank you!", though, for bringing Stephanie onto the stage a bit more. All together, this is a solid story line and I can't wait to see what happens next. It'll be nice to dig a bit more into the characters again but still a great story and series. Definitely worth adding to your collection.


I received a complimentary copy of The Solomon Scroll from Alex Lukeman for beta reading. This review isn't required but it's something I like to do. The opinions in this review are mine alone and from my own personal viewpoint.

Book Review: Black Rose by Alex Lukeman


Black Rose is the 9th book in The Project series by Alex Lukeman. This fast paced thrill ride picks up right after The Eye of Shiva bringing The Project and AEON back together for a final confrontation. Assassinations, an incurable plague, and control of the world are just some of the things you'll find along with a well running theme of Selena Connor's background story. Things are really starting to heat up!

Amazon book description:
A lethal plague resurrected from the bones of the dead is stolen from a secret biological warfare lab hidden in the mountains of North Korea. There's no cure and it's one hundred percent fatal. If it gets loose, millions will die. The men who have it want to reduce the world's population and bring down the global economy as part of a plan to establish world dominance.
Nick Carter and Selena Connor of the Project are up against their old nemesis, a centuries old conspiracy called AEON. This time, Director Elizabeth Harker is determined to eliminate AEON once and for all. It's touch and go as events build toward the final confrontation, with no certainty that things will turn out well. Along the way, dark secrets from Selena's past come to light. The Project team takes on another dangerous mission, with no guarantee that any of them will survive. 
Black Rose keeps up the pace that Alex Lukeman has set in the previous books and has the team moving from the US to Europe to South America and then back again. There are secrets that are finally revealed, new revelations that will continue the story on to who knows where, and a shake up within the team. I am pumped for the 10th book because I can't wait to see where this goes. While I love the missions that The Project go on and the interesting events that seems to happen to them, I am really enjoying the continuing story line and unexpected twists in the lives of Selena and Nick. We get to learn a bit about some of the others (more on Stephanie, please!) but it's obvious that Selena and Nick are the main characters and the twists and turns they encounter really bring this series to life. This is definitely a must read.
