What I Loved: Vince Ramsey, our main character, is so savvy and makes for a great lead in Realm of the Unknown. I enjoyed his character the moment he entered the book. He’s knowledgeable and reads people well and I felt that he made decisions I understood and agreed with.
How I Felt: The writing in Realm of the Unknown was done so well! The descriptions of the locations in the book gave me such a great visualization of the scene! I was hooked on this book from the very beginning. The prologue gives you that sense of urgency and danger immediately, and I mean from the first sentence!
I appreciated the pace this book set. The action starts right at the beginning and I don’t think it ever slowed down! The story quickly built layer upon layer and felt a bit like The Da Vinci Code. Tons of occult and secret societies, then add the assassins that are after the main character and it all made for a fabulous read.
To Read or Not To Read: If you enjoy Dan Brown’s books, you will definitely enjoy Realm of the Unknown! A fast-paced, action packed book with lots of secrets to be revealed.
Vince Ramsey is an investigator of artifacts at the Ministry in Israel, so he’s used to getting calls to check one thing or another out. He receives a call to investigate a mass murder that took place the day before and jumps right on it. At the scene he finds the remnants of a much older corpse and with it, an artifact.
Taking it with him, he starts to research the item’s history and begins working with April, another historical professional. They quickly realize this is no ordinary artifact and they have stirred up a ton of trouble asking questions about it. With assassins on their tails, they must get the answers they need before it is too late.
