Blog Tour Stop: Black Madonna: The Pope’s Deadly Obsession by L. Lee Kane

What do you get when you cross The DaVinci Code and The Knight’s Templar? Black Madonna by L. Lee Kane

Synopsis

Luci de Foix was nine when her parents were killed in a car accident. But was it an accident? Unbeknownst to Luci, a group known as The Order, under the protection of the Pope, has been watching her family for many years, waiting fo the day that a diary written in the thirteenth century would be delivered to her family – a journal that contains a key to a lost codex – and they would do anything to get it. Early one morning, when Luci is twenty-nine, a bloodied young man delivers a book, claiming it’s from her late grandparents.

Plagued by panic attacks that have left her crippled, Luci struggles to overcome her fears, avenge the death of her family, and search for the lost codex. But who can she trust? Everyone seems intent on betraying her, even the gorgeous, enigmatic Max, a man with secrets of his own.

You should know by now that I love anything with drama and adventure, with some mystery and suspense mixed in. I truly enjoyed reading Black Madonna as it introduces you to the main character, Luci, as a child, and how she became who she in the present. It introduces you to characters from her childhood, and how everyone is linked today.

I just love how the book is written. Not too much detail, but it still gives you that feeling of being there, like you are a fly on the wall.

I give Black Madonna 5 ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ for the story, the atmosphere it presents, and the fact that it held my attention in this hard time that I have been through the last couple of weeks. I enjoyed it, and I recommend to you.

The Old Dragon’s Head by Justin Newland

Published October 2018

From the author of Genes of Isis, Justin Newland, has wowed me yet again. The Old Dragon’s Head was written beautifully, and captivated me from the first sentence.

Synopsis

Constructed of stone and packed earth, the Great Wall of 10,000 li protects China’s northern borders from the threat of Mongol incursion. The wall is also home to a supernatural beast: the Old Dragon. The Old Dragon’s Head is the most easterly point of the wall, where it finally meets the sea.

In every era, a Dragon Master is born. Endowed with the powers of Heaven, only he can summon the Old Dragon so long as he possess the dragon pearl.

It’s the year 1400, and neither the Old Dragon, the dragon pearl, nor the Dragon Master, has been seen for twenty years. Bolin, a young man working on the Old Dragon’s Head, suffers visions of ghosts. Folk believe he has yin-yang eyes and other paranormal fights. When Bolin’s fief lord, the Prince of Yan, rebels against his nephew, the Jianwen Emperor, a bitter war of succession ensues in which the Mongols hold the balance of power. While the victor might win the battle on earth, China’s Dragon Throne can only be earned with a Mandate from heaven – and the support of the Old Dragon.

Bolin embarks on a journey of self-discovery, mirroring Old China’s endeavor to come of age. When Bolin accepts his destiny as the Dragon Master, Heaven sends a third coming of age – for humanity itself. But are any of them ready for what is rising in the east?

I have never read a book such as this before. It kept my attention from the first sentence, and I could not put down my iPad. I love the way Justin writes, and he never fails to amaze me.

I give The Old Dragon’s Head 5 stars. The characters, the setting, the accuracy, everything, was amazing.
