|WASH:||stained with dirt|
Vaults of Power by Diane Echer is not about roller coasters, but the book reads like a good roller coaster ride.
Vaults of Power starts off a little slow, but not so slow that you are able to stop reading. There is just enough mystery and action at the beginning to keep the reader from putting the book down. As the pieces fall into place near the top of the first hill of this roller coaster, the reader develops an excitement about what is about to come, but has no idea what kind of ride the book is going to take them on.
When the action started, it didn’t stop till the last few pages of the book. There were twists and turns that I never saw coming. Putting the book down to do other things was very difficult.
Robyn Gabriel is a treasure hunter whose life is about to be changed when she finds out that her twin sister Sybil has been in an accident. Robyn immediately leaves her treasure hunting ship to travel across the world to France. What follows is a chase to discover what a secret manuscript really says and why so many people are interested in getting their hands on it.
The book is a combination of Dan Brown and Clive Cussler with the special flair of Diane Echer blending them together. This book is not a “copy cat” – the story is definitely original. There is the international conspiracy (Jesuits, sinking of the Titanic, federal reserve, and more) that we expect from Dan Brown and the treasure hunting, risk taking main character that made Clive Cussler famous.
If you enjoy either of these authors, this is a book that you do not want to miss reading!
Vaults of Power is Diane Echer’s first book. I personally look forward to seeing what she writes next!
