Review: Plagues of Eden

I was looking for a good thriller when this book was given to me in exchange for an honest review.  Plagues of Eden seemed to be exactly what I was looking for and I found myself reading well into the night.

Synopsis from Amazon:
THE WHEEL SPINS. CHAOS IS UNLEASHED. 72 HOURS AND COUNTING UNTIL THE DEATH OF THE FIRSTBORN… The race is on to stop a madman bent on unleashing the ancient plagues of Egypt against the modern world. The countdown has begun. Only Army Chaplain Jaime Richards, along with rock star Mark Shepard, can stop the catastrophe and save the mysterious Sword 23 from the clutches of a psychopath... if they can find the true mastermind in time. 

My review:
I always love a good strong heroine, and Jaime Richards gave me exactly what I wanted.  She was strong, yet still vulnerable and never loses her faith in God. She loves two men but I have to say that I really found Mark to be more appealing than Yani.  Romance was not the focus of the story but her relationship with both men was part of the story line.  

The action was the main focus in the story and it was constant. The idea of using the plagues was original and really kept me interested in the story.  The settings as they traveled to try and get ahead of the attacks were beautiful. I could see the story as I was reading which really made it come alive for me. My only regret is that I didn't read any of the earlier books to learn more about Eden, Terris, the Gardeners, etc... 

This is definitely a page turner with an extremely engaging plot line.  I would highly recommend it.
