Rating: 5 out of 5 stars
The First Gospel was the second book that I read by Darryl Nyznyk. (See my review of The Condor Song.)
I was attracted to the book because of the cover. I was intrigued to discover how the cover related to the actual text.
The First Gospel is a historical fiction novel that keeps you enthralled until the very end. The main character, Matt Carter, is thrown into a religious fight that leaves him wondering if he will live to see the next day.
Matt Carter's family owned a parchment that was key to the religious fight. Matt becomes aware of the deadly fight, when a former professor, Samuel Rosen sends Matt a letter before he is killed. After the death of Samuel Rosen, the religious fight intensifies with death after death.
As I read The First Gospel, I was reminded of The Divinci Code. Darryl Nyznyk creates in an amazing plot that makes me, at times, wished that I read faster. I really enjoyed reading this book and connecting with the characters. The unusual twists and turns kept me reading the book to discover how it would end. If you are into historical fiction, this book is a must-read.
