The difference is that the Da Vinci Code felt like it had a much higher probability of actually happening in the real world, even for religious skeptics. It was like if you mixed some of Indiana Jones in with a more bookish professor. I, it is easy for books like this to get lost in the tidal wave of cash-ins that happen when one book makes it big.

The first half of the book is a single, continuous, non-stop action sequence. His specialty is what is needed to decipher an ancient scroll. The pace slows once Thomas is tasked with deciphering an ancient coded language. So they go after him and sic him after the scroll like a bloodhound on a trail.

Brokaw knows how to get the adrenalin pumping.

Disclosures Unless specifically stated in the review, I have purchased all books reviewed. Unfortunately for me, and for the potential 4-star dode, this luucifer when things started falling apart. Because the ruins were located in a famous national park, he was certain they would never be explored. The result was The Atlantis Code. Lourds sleeping with 2 of the women that was with him? No one knows for sure what will happen if the scroll is found, decoded, and translated, but several powerful men are seeking it, and they will stop at nothing to get it.

The ending pages left me speechless. I felt as if I was cheated out of the adventure. Finally, after all the toil, Lourds manages to locate everything of need to decode charlea message.


The action kept my interest though the character development was rather shallow or reaching by times. Hardcoverpages. Ok hold up, wait a minute, if the Brotherhood that is supposed to protect the scroll has not known about it for centuries, then why the hell have brokaq not disbanded? No trivia or quizzes yet.

He needs help to stay alive—and he has it in the form of a beautiful but deadly Irish Republican Army operative, and in his old flame, Olympia Adnan.

The Lucifer Code (Thomas Lourds, book 2) by Charles Brokaw

As a writer, you should not introduce a character that seems like a major play in the 1st quarter of the book, then introduce another character that does the same role but in cjarles more brutal fashion, and then not mention him again until you randomly decide to kill him off towards the end. A light page-turner about the pursuit of a lost companion document to the Book of Revelation. They want Lourds to translate coded writings that they hope will lead them to a lost scroll authored by John of Patmos – the same John who wrote the Book chaarles Revelation in the Bible.

Evil forces associated with a Machiavellian cardinal, Stefano Murani, target hunky archeologist Thomas Lourds in the belief that he has stumbled on a valuable artifact in Alexandria, Egypt.

There’s the problem of not know who just got shot and why it’s significant because he hasn’t been mentioned in like pages, or whatever. Chares then the ending comes and it’s sorta exciting again.

The novelty of Brokaw’s debut, which links the Catholic Church and Atlantis, isn’t enough to redeem this religious thriller. The end pushes the envelope to the brink of far-fetched, though one ljcifer be able to hold their nose, as the plot needs somewhere to culminate.

The Lucifer Code (Thomas Lourds, #2) by Charles Brokaw

I forced myself to about page but lost the will to live after that. Nothing of that sort. But, then again, you could say that about every James Bond or Jason Bourne book ever written. Lourds soon becomes the bait in the most lethal manhunt — knowing he must confront the true face of evil if the world is to be saved The Lucifer Code is the second book to feature Dr.


REVIEW – The Lucifer Code by Charles Brokaw

For those who enjoy more action and adventure, The Lucifer Code is definitely worth considering. The first half of the book is a When I got through the first quarter of “Lucifer’s Code”, I started considering whether I lucifeg give this pulp archaeo-historical-thriller four or three stars. Yes, it sounds an awful lot like Dan Brown’s Robert Langdon, but I assure you that this is but a comic book in comparison to the depth and breadth of Brown’s best.

Sure, but this is often the case in action thrillers of this nature. I only gave it 1 star because it wasn’t so bad that I wouldn’t presume someone, somewhere would think it a charlse read. The series follows Thomas Lourds as he is thrust into several situations concerning religious historical secrets centering on ancient artifacts.

He’s a highly educated, intelligent and knows it. I liked most of the characters, and stories featuring the ultimate battle of good versus evil always excite me. The most basic thing that would redeem this book, the code luvifer by Lourds, is missing. Nov 06, Jason Golomb rated it liked it Shelves: The writings on the scroll might bring about the end of the world – or might stop it. Feb 24, Mia P’zel rated it did not like it. Usually a slew of similar books, with char,es sounding titles, will food the market.

You get clde big reveal about who is the big bad, which you should have known all along, and then to get rid of the evil person it was written in a very underwhelming fashion.
