Reviews

Review by Library Journal (2011-02-01)

First published in 2001 in Norway as Circle's End two years before Dan Brown's The Da Vinci Code, Egeland's (The Guardians of the Covenant) breakthrough work is strikingly similar to Brown's book in tone and subject (enough to explain readers' speculations of Brown's plagiarism) but adds to the academic mix red herrings, a Robert Ludlum-like veil of paranoia, excellent characterization and backstory, and elements of Indiana Jones adventure and high jinks. From the first chapter to the final pages, this is a page-turner of the first order as archaeologist Bjorn Belto travels from the North Atlantic to the Mediterranean in search of answers to the riddle of the Golden Shrine.

Verdict: This well-written, accessible, and exciting read should please fans of The Da Vinci Code and Indiana Jones movies.
