Book Review-- The Authorian Omen

When a Celtic scholar finds a clue to a priceless fifth-century manuscript that will prove the real identity of King Arthur, she is brutally murdered. Determined to find the manuscript and avenge her sister's death, Maren Southcott begins a quest that puts her own life in danger. Overt and covert seekers weave in and out of the tale as she travels through the castles and monasteries of ancient Wales, seeking the document that could rival the The Book of Kells. Who are all these people? Which one is her psychopathic stalker plotting death and revolution? Which one wants her dead? Did the Celtic professor with the extraordinary eyes kill her sister? Can she risk death and find the manuscript before MI5, Scotland Yard, and impassioned Celtic scholars?

I read this book a few weeks ago and loved it, in fact I couldn't put it down. it is fast moving and filled with twists and turns that left me guessing right up to the last page. If you like Mary Higgins Clark you will love this book.

Arthurian Omen can be purchased at or or you can borrow it though Inter library loan for those outside of Utah.
