Today I am doing a review of The Return by Carter Vance.
The time has come for the prophesied return of Christ. Long thought extinct, the secret Order of Knights Templar battle the Dark Forces that fear His return.
At the center of this battle of good and evil is Sarah Davidson, an expectant mother, who has a unique heritage, and Peter Christos, her shipping magnate husband. The couple, who were married in the presence of the Ark of the Covenant, is confronted with a series of surreptitious schemes and attacks causing them to flee and seek a secure birthplace for their son.
They are aided in this endeavor by the Knights Templar, a clandestine organization that has, over the centuries, amassed enormous wealth and power and the organization to deliver it in anticipation of this day.
Ultimately, they engage in a grand battle for the prophesied birth.
My Review: This is an interesting book about the prophecy of the return or Christ. It delves into a lot of little known prophecy of the Holy Grail and the ark and the signs of the second coming. The author builds around the new Holy mother giving birth and the Knights of Templar(a group long thought to be extinct)protecting her and the babe from the forces of dark. It is a fast moving story maybe a little too fast. I would have liked to have the people developed a little more so I cared more deeply for them. There are quite a few editing errors, missing words and such. Most of them I could read through without too much distress. For anyone who likes things like searches for the Holy Grail and prophecy this a good read. There was a lot of research that went into this I think to include all kinds of predicting. I give this book 4 stars.
