Book Review | The Messiah Code
The Messiah Code by Michael Cordy
As Tom Carter dodges an assassins bullet his life falls apart when he loses everything he holds dear. Now he is on a hunt to save his dying daughter by chasing down a miracle from 2000 years ago. He has to contend with an ancient brotherhood and a deadly assassin who will stop at nothing to kill him.
While I liked this book the storyline is all too familiar and there are a lot of books floating about that follow this same theme on a search across the world with a brotherhood or secret society out to stop it. It was a good read and kept a good pace but I would’ve like to have seen more from his investigation and search as he traveled, it was glossed over quite quickly but could’ve added more to the story. The relationship between Tom and his daughter isn’t as well developed as it could be either it just seems like it is written as an afterthought to justify his search.
The book contains religious content which may offend depending on your beliefs but I think the author handled it well and it was well thought out. There were moments where I could identify with the characters especially the assassin (not sure what this says about me) but she was well written and while disturbed and excessively violent her past which is revealed in flash backs gave an incite into how she became like she is. Not saying what she did was justified but I had a bit of a soft spot for her.
I would recommend this book to people who like Dan Brown books, thrillers and mysteries. I’m giving this book 3 stars.
