ABOUT THE BOOK:
Their story didn't start this year . . . or even this millennium.

It began when Moses was on Mt. Sinai. Tired of waiting on the One True God, the twelve tribes of Israel began worshipping a golden calf through pagan revelry. Many received immediate death for their idolatry, but 40 were handed a far worse punishment-endless life on earth with no chance to see the face of God.

This group of immortals became the 13th Tribe, and they've been trying to earn their way into heaven ever since-by killing sinners. Though their logic is twisted, their brilliance is undeniable. Their wrath is unstoppable. And the technology they possess is beyond anything mere humans have ever seen.

Jagger Baird knows nothing about the Tribe when he's hired as head of security for an archaeological dig on Mt. Sinai. The former Army Ranger is still reeling from an accident that claimed the life of his best friend, his arm, and his faith in God.

MY THOUGHTS:
The 13th Tribe was a very thought-provoking and gripping novel. The idea of there being an immortal tribe was fascinating and such a refreshing concept. There were some shocking twists that I never saw coming, which made the story that much more enjoyable!

I didn't want to put this book down. However, it is over 400 pages and I started it late in the evening so I had to put it down, but it only took me a little over a day to read it - which to me says a lot! I am looking forward to reading the next book in this series and hope it will be available sooner rather than later. I recommend this book!

***I received a complimentary copy of this book to review. I was asked to give my honest opinion of the book - which I have done.***
