I don't usually read fiction, but since it was biblically based (and free on amazon prime), i decided to read it. i couldn't put it down. my only letdown at the end was not knowing the further outcome of alban's fate with pilate, and if linux would come to believe. the miraculous reunion of jacob and abigail was unexpected, and while it didn't detract from the story, it seemed almost out of place. all told, it was a great book and i would recommend it to anyone who likes fiction.
