The 13th Tribe By Robert Liparulo

I received this E-book from Booksneeze.com for no charge in exchange for my honest review of this E-book.

Book Description:
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.

The Tribe is poised to execute their most ambitious attack ever and the lives of millions hang in the balance. When Jagger’s wife and son are caught in the crossfire, he’ll stop at nothing to save them. But how can one man stand against an entire tribe of immortals?

My Thoughts:

The 13th Tribe is the first book I have read by Robert Liparulo and I truly enjoyed it.  In the beginning I had a little confusion with all the different characters but just briefly. After a few pages it all made sense.  This book is non stop, there is NO lag in action. This book grabs you and keeps you until the end. I had a very hard time putting this book down.  The lines of good and evil aren't so easy to see in this book. Filled with raw emotion and impossible decisions, you will both root for and against the "villains", but you will also do the same with regard to the "heroes".  You see  The Tribe equipped with the latest stealth tech, where they don't hold back on their  pursuit to rid humanity of undesirables; and then Jagger is a tough yet spiritually wounded hero struggling with the question of where is God when tragedy strikes. As I read this story and the authors concepts of justice, forgiveness and mercy it really made me sit back and examine my own convictions.  Robert Liparulo writes so vividly that it was so easy to picture the characters, their surroundings, and all the action that takes place in this book.  I truly enjoyed this story and can't wait to read more by Robert Liparulo.  If you enjoy Christian Fiction/Action this is a great book for you!!
