Multi-volume, historical-fantasy-thriller author, Rob Samborn introduces us to the third volume in the Painted Souls series:
A relentless pursuit.
The brink of world domination.
With her husband imprisoned in eternal purgatory, Julia O’Connor and her friends must use every tool in their arsenal to stop Salvatore della Porta from completing his plan of global supremacy through Veritism—the one veritable religion—and save millions of souls from a similar fate.
Della Porta’s men doggedly track the team across Europe to Asia and back to Venice, as they seek an age-old journal that will either catapult della Porta to triumph or crush him for good. To free the souls and end the madness, they must also unearth an ancient relic that can destroy the Sun Crystal—the key to our past, present, and future.
In a final, desperate gambit, Julia and her band of renegades have one last chance to save her husband, liberate the imprisoned souls, and stop della Porta from gaining boundless power. Their every move is a race against destiny in this gripping, globe-spanning historical thriller.”
I was on the edge of my Kindle for nearly the entire story!
The author's writing is superb! He paints such a wonderful picture in my mind with location details in the right amount. That is an important balance to find difficult to maintain because too little detail and the reader is left in the dark, too much detail can muddy the story or plot.
I am babbling because I don't give spoilers but this time it's so hard because I want to exult about the ending! I loved it.
You will just have to read it for yourself. Do yourself a favor and start with the first book, you can thank me later.
I give this story 4.8 stars.
