Blood of the Lamb is an Awesome Religious Puzzle by Sam Cabot

 

 

This is a title to place in the category of ‘coolest religious puzzles ever’.

 

Beginning in Rome, our story offers up a variety of groups that are searching for an ancient document stolen from the vaults of the Vatican. At this time, everything was under the control of a very unpopular Pope.TOMBloodoftheLamb

 

Seems that a poet by the name of Mario Damiani is the culprit behind the disappearance of the Concordat, which is an odd document signed by Pope Martin and his nefarious group, the Noantri. The Concordat basically states that the Church will not persecute the Noantri in exchange for the Noantri’s support of Martin at the time he was in contention for the Pope’s seat. The Noantri, of course, are not your ordinary group of thugs. They are, in fact, vampires who’ve been around since ancient times.

 

Skip ahead to modern day where a young American Jesuit Priest, Thomas Kelly, is asked to come to Rome and work for Cardinal Cossa, the head of the Vatican Library. The Cardinal has just learned that this Concordat was once real and is now missing. He wants to find it and believes that Father Kelly, an expert in the study of Italian matters, can help him in his quest.

 

An art expert, Livia Pietro, is also looking for the document while – you guessed it – the Noantri vamps attempt to track it down.

 

Father Kelly and Livia meet while they’re looking through old papers and join together to find the Concordat. There are clues that have been left behind as to its whereabouts, and as the humans meet up with the fanged ones readers are whisked away on a merry chase through the streets of Rome.

 

Plenty of intrigue and secrets, with a little bit of romance thrown in for the ‘Twilight’ aficionados, this title can go from scary to silly. But, in the end, it is always a whole lot of fun and a highly memorable read.

 

Until Next Time, Everybody,

Amy Lignor
