Jessica is happily married with David. What Jessica doesn´t know is that David´s real name is Dawit, he is 450 years old and he is a member of a secret cult, whose members all are immortals. As David´s life with his mortal family gets threatened, he has to make difficult decisions. The question is, will Jessica approve of these decisions?
Let me say this right up front, I really hated this book with a vengeance. It´s so incredibly boring, I had to drag my way through it. But that is not the worst thing about it. Towards the end this novel turns from boring to downright disgusting and I´m contemplanting to sue the author and the publisher for killing off innocent trees. Trees shouldn´t have died for this garbage (even recycling paper is to good for it). So I loathed the story, I didn´t like the characters and the constant mentioning of religion and miracles really grated on my nerves. Everything else I have to say about this book I will put behind a spoiler tag. And be warned, I will spoil the whole damn thing.
But before I do that I will mention the one thing in this novel, that made me chortle (in disbelief and with a lot of eye rolling):
The secret cult has a total of 85 members and their philosophy is that the world belongs to them and the 7.4 billion mortal humans are merely tolerated on earth. I´m actually waiting for the author to write a book about the time, when all the mortals are dead. I´m wondering how 85 people are going to manage the whole world *headslap*.
