The Vault by Emily McKay
The Vault - Emily McKay

Date Published: December 2, 2014

Read from: 12/21/14 to 1/6/15

Rating: 5 stars

 

Synopsis: There is no rest for the damned in this thrilling follow-up to Emily McKay's The Lair and The Farm, in a series New York Times bestselling author Chloe Neill calls, "Equal parts Resident Evil and Hunger Games."

 

* The actual synopsis is completely full of spoilers from the second book!! Here is the link to the synopsis of book one The Farm https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/13542868-the-farm

 

My Thoughts: This book was even more amazing than the first two were. So many things happened and we got a lot of answers that we didn't get in the first two books. The way things ended in the book were great. I think it ended just like it should have and I was very happy with it. It was action filled and there were sad moments and you are kept guessing as to what's gonna happen next. I am almost 100% positive this is the last book from the way things wrap up through out the whole book and at the end of the book. I would highly HIGHLY recommend this if you have not read this yet.This series is hands down one of my

The Inquisitor's Key - Jefferson Bass I enjoyed this book, but not as much as some of Bass's other works... This book felt, at least in the beginning, rushed. I found it quiet annoying that Isabelle get's a one line mention that she's dead from the Japan Tsunami, when some of the previous book was spent wondering if she was carrying Dr. B's child... It was just so random and and seemed like a cop-out to get rid of her. While this is now the third book I've read detailing the papacy at Avignon, its not the best, as much as I hate to say it. I do like the fact that Bass focused on a small part of that history rather than the Templars (which the other two books did) and their dealings with the papacy there. But something still felt missing from this book... may be it was the ending in that Miranda saved Dr. B... but didn't really end it... It was a rather annoying ending.

The Inquisitor's Key - Jefferson Bass *Rating* 3 1/2 *Genre* Mystery*Review*The Inquisitor’s Key is the seventh novel in the Body Farm series. The main character of the series is Dr. Bill Brockton, renowned forensic anthropologist and founder of the Body Farm at the University of Tennessee. If you haven’t yet had the opportunity to read this series, you really should consider trying it out. If you weren’t aware that this place actually exists, they I shall correct your mistaken belief when I say that I’ve actually visited there thanks to the bi-annual visit of the Florida Gators to UT for college football.Dr. Bill is once again asked by the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation for his help in identifying a body that was left behind after a botched DEA investigation into the Columbian drug trade into the US Southeast. Almost immediately, he once again finds himself in danger because the operation itself has somehow been compromised. Unfortunately, this operation causes the death of someone important to Bill, and who has been a friend of his for awhile.Bill then receives a call in regards to the health of his all but important assistant Miranda Lovejoy. Miranda is in Avignon, France for the summer doing an excavation on a former medieval palace that once was the home to the French Popes. After a bit of misdirection, and lies about what is happening to Miranda, Bill takes off like a bat out of hell to Avignon only to learn that Miranda is fine and that she and her colleague Stefan Beauvoir may have found the discovery of a lifetime.The book transcends time periods going back to the 14th century (1314-1328) as well as the present time. Dr. Bill is once again at the center of a major mystery after discovering that the bones that were found in Avignon by Stefan and Miranda may or may not be that of the Christ Jesus.With the discovery of the fact that the bones are 2,000 years old, comes plenty of questions and the mystery of how they ended in in the former palace in the first place.This story definitely has a nice historical feel to it. The writers delve into the lives of several Catholic Popes especially those like Clement the V and Benedict the VII who were behind the Inquisition and the total destruction of the Knight’s Templar’s during the early 14th century. The mystery kept me interested in the story right until the very last page. Were the bones actually Christ Jesus, and if so, how did they end up at the Palace of the Popes? Or, were the bones actually that of Jean Eckhart who caught the ire of the White Pope during the Inquisition and was never heard from again? Sorry, no spoilage here!Then there is the relationship between Bill and Miranda who have worked together for the past 6 years. Again, if you haven’t read this series, I absolutely encourage you to at least go to the library and borrow this book. It seems as though Miranda and Bill are growing closer than ever which is better late than never. I want to thank the writer Jon Jefferson for providing me with a signed advanced copy of this novel. Jon I appreciate the fact that you thought about me when sharing copies of this book.Hardcover, 352 pagesExpected publication: May 8th 2012 by William Morrow

The Inquisitor's Key - Jefferson Bass I know if anyone goes back and reads my reviews for my previous "Body Farm" reads, I always say that that particular book is the best of the series (until I read the next one), but I must say that The Inquisitor's Key is the Pièce de résistance of the series. This book is beyond intelligently written with loads of intrigue set in multiple eras which come together spectacularly, yet Jon Jefferson remained true to the "down to earth" character of Bill Brockton. When I heard the premise of the book, I was concerned that "down to earthness" and light sarcasm would be lost. There are few authors that I salivate waiting for their books to come out, but, like a fine dark chocolate or a fine wine, the writing duo of Jon Jefferson and William Bass are a pleasure worth waiting for. I always know I will not be disappointed and with The Inquisitor's Key...that feeling is magnified 100%.
