Review by wyvernfriend
This is the story of a woman who finds that she has links to the holy grail. She also finds that she's dragged into controversy and that there are a number of different people who want her to join them because she has a lot of potential power.I found it readable but only just, there are huge leaps of faith involved in some of the logic and the story, despite it's claim of authenticity (which really didn't do anything to improve the story for me). The interlinks that it builds between almost all the famous women of history stretched even my flexible credulity! The fact that I've read almost everything that she's using as references didn't help.It's not the worst thing I've read, I found it readable but it didn't make me want to rush out and get the sequel.

This book really made me think. The plot was complex but not too confusing, the characters were realistic and engaging, and the premise is factually based, which made the book even more appealing. There is a list of references in the back for those who want to follow up on her research. Based on her website, it seems somewhat autobiographical as well, which I found very intriguing. I really looked forward to reading the next installment.
