Listened to the book on a road trip this past weekend. Holy moly!! Heart pounding, sweaty palms, multiple WTF moments. This audio book just made my weekend and my long car drive was one of the most memorable.
I am floored by the book and the narrator. It changed my perspective on so many things over and over as i listened. Binge listened the whole thing - 8+ hours - through the night and then had to go to work right after. I am still processing what i just experienced. One of my favorite audio books. no doubt about that!
This book had so many elements that I love. There is a quest style adventure, full of secrets, secret societies and history. This is a book right up my alley and I have to say K.M. Lewis really delivered. The writing is fantastic and the plot is really intricate and interesting. At times the story may feel overwhelming because of the sheer amount going on, but just stick with it, because it all comes together, and it leaves you wanting the next book immediately. If you are a fan of secret societies throughout history and you love the adventure style of the Robert Langdon books, then the Thirteenth Guardian trilogy is going to be right up your alley. I really enjoyed this book. I can’t wait for the next one in the trilogy!
First, I feel like the title and novel cover are misleading because I genuinely thought that there would be some mystical and supernatural angel type stuff like the movie Legion, but there wasn't. With that in mind, this book was still AMAZING!!!
This novel is on par with Armageddon and the end of the world stuff with SO much real science and information, in addition, to the real information there are ties that are thrown in with historical and religious references and it was just absolutely awe inspiring. At first when you begin this novel you are thrown into a lot of different story lines with different characters and it feels very confusing, but then you quickly get hooked and this was a novel I did NOT want to put down. Be warned, this is not one of those that you think "just one more chapter" at night....because next thing you know it will be 2a!!!
I did love how this story had a good enough ending, however, definitely can continue on and I am excited to see what the author has in store for the next novel!
This had a The Da Vinci Code vibe to it, which I enjoyed. K.M. Lewis has brought the apocalypse of the Bible to life in The Thirteenth Guardian, but there's a huge secret, and it's a good one, quite the doozy. I thought this book was captivating and I finished the book in one sitting. It looks to be a part of a series, maybe even a trilogy. I'm excited to see where this goes!
The Thirteenth Guardian has a lot of references to the bible and I loved making those connections from Moses and Noah to plagues and biblical references to the Vatican to Da Vinci to Michelangelo and it even reminded me of the Pangaea.
The time and the research that went into the writing of The Thirteenth Guardian alone is so amazing. The writing in itself is brilliant to bring all this information together in one story to explain how some of the things in the bible may have come about or to explain a comet that may be headed our way as we speak to reference a comet in such a way is brilliant and amazing which may just open a few eyes. I can’t give it enough phrases. If I could give it more than five stars I would on the writing alone not to mention the time and research that I imagine went into the writing. Would I recommend The Thirteenth Guardian? You bet I would to all fans of apocalyptic or the bible after all it is just a fantasy story right?
The thirteenth guardian, well where to start, I went into this book knowing nothing and it blew me away, from the first chapter I was hooked, the history aspect,the different character points of view over different continents and the hidden history stories had me captivated for page 1 . I'm not a very religious person but even all the religious text and information that was incased in this book was great and surprisingly powerful. This book has now become one of my favorite books of all time, which in comparison to some of my all time favorites such as Jurassic Park, Harry Potter (all of them), Vicious, The KingMaker Chronicles and Stalking Jack the Ripper series just to name a few, this book has something unique and awe inspiring about it that will make reading it a vivid and sometimes terrifying experience that everyone needs to do.
I started reading this book and found myself more and more engrossed with the story. The plot is non stop action and thought provoking. I could not put the book down. Lewis has written a hit.
The Thirteenth Guardian by KM Lewis is a genuinely different approach to all the different types of dystopian books that I have read over the years. Mr. Lewis truly takes it into a new spin. Taking all the ancient stories, paintings, and all the religious teachings that we have known throughout time to wrap them up into one story.
Very very good story, it was a page turner. Once I started reading I couldn't put it down. I would recommend this book to my friends.
If you knew when the world would end, what would you do? If you knew for a fact that you were chosen to put your life on the line to save the world, would you? This book is an amazing read with lots of action. The ending will blow you away!
All hell breaks out, the earth as we know it changes almost over night.
K.M. Lewis created a set of characters in this book that resulted in a very captivating story that is thought provoking.
It isn't often I am so intrigued by a premise or the complexity of the story . I am looking forward to seeing the next phase.
What an intense book! I truly enjoyed this read and every character in it. This book gives you a thought about the the end times. I will be looking at the Sistine chapel differently now.
