The Brotherhood Conspiracy by Terry Brennan
Kregel Publications, paperback
From the Publisher
Tom Bohannon's discovery of an ancient scroll led him on an international adventure and through mysteries of faith and politics, ending in a place not even he could imagine: the Third Temple of God hidden under Temple Mount in Jerusalem. But soon after his remarkable discovery, the future of the world changed again. Tom watched as a chasm tore apart Temple Mount, as new rivers swept through the Kidron Valley and into the streets of Old Jerusalem, their discovery swallowed by an earthquake, crushed under tons of stone and debris. A biblical prophecy realized. The final days were upon them.
Wondering how to recover from such a momentous find and such horrendous destruction, Tom's adventures are not over. No one knows how much time is left in these last days--a year? A hundred years? A thousand? Plagued by murderous dreams, Tom fears members of the Prophet Guard--killers who wear the Coptic cross with a lightning bolt slashing through it--are back and looking for him. But they are not the only threat to Tom and his team. Forces behind the Arab Spring have sinister plans. And underestimating their determination would be a fatal mistake.
The same fast-paced, page-turning prose that readers loved in The Sacred Cipher is back in Terry Brennan's eagerly awaited sequel, The Brotherhood Conspiracy.
The Brotherhood Conspiracy is a fast-paced book full of action and intrigue, prophecy and a lot of Biblical history. The story takes us from New York to Jerusalem where tensions run high with the clash of two religions between Israel and the Middle East. The discovery of the Tent of Meeting beneath the Temple Mount could drastically change the future between these two countries. It is an amazing discovery! Suddenly there is an earthquake which causes this important discovery to be buried!
I found this story full of suspense and very difficult to put down! This is a story that could have been taken from a page in our current events. With the political intrigue and stories we seem to hear daily from the Middle East. I found the book well written and even though there were a lot of characters to keep track of in this book, the author lists all of the main characters in the beginning for easy reference. Having that to refer to helped me keep everyone straight. I also loved the historical facts that were included in the back of the book. If you love lots of intrigue and Biblical prophecy you will want to read The Brotherhood Conspiracy. This is the second book in this series, but The Brotherhood Conspiracy can be read as a stand alone book.
