Reviewed by Boaters Book Club:
Most felt it was overwritten, over researched, in need of a good editor, with poor characterisations, based on The De Vinci Code with the expectation of it becoming a tour/travel book and that it was reusing Labyrinth. The parallel stories were not liked however a few ideas were considered good.
