Summary

Forty years after a mysterious billionaire disappears, he suddenly resurfaces with a dark secret that shocks the world.

In this enthralling third novel in the God's Lions series, Cardinal Leopold Amodeo is once again teamed with a group of scientists and archaeologists as they are led to the inescapable conclusion that a very real evil has arrived in the world.

Based on recently declassified documents and real-life technological breakthroughs, John Lyman takes listeners on a wild ride into a future that is already here, where technology takes flight in the hands of one who has vowed to destroy mankind.

Long and drawn out

Books 1&2 great but book 3...
To many blah blah blahs. Some high interesting periods then completely drops to boredom. How many times does a writer mention each character running their hands through their hair? This writer?
Nearly every character. Seriously? Completely disappointed with book 3.
I hope book 4 doesn’t leave me wanting a way to recoup time wasted on hands running through hair!!!

Outstanding Series

These books and the narration are some of the best I have read or listened to. They need to be made into movies.

A Fictional Story.....Or Maybe Not??

A lot of action, breath holding suspense and thought provoking question of good versus evil. The God's Lions series is a must read for anyone who believes good will always win over evil. Kudos to John Lyman for a great story.
