This is not a book to read, leave and come back to later. The reader needs to read this carefully and put the pieces of the puzzle together to understand how every character was involved and when the loose ends have been tied, it’s an amazing read and we’re left with a wow experience at the final page of the book.

I absolutely loved reading this book despite the slow but steady pace. The back and forth between early history and present time is organized so you're not going to be confused. Keep track of the characters though. They come and go as time passes.
