Publisher's Summary

Forget all you know.

History's biggest secrets were hidden behind myths and legends....

This is the long-awaited sequel to the international, Amazon US/UK Top 100 best-seller: Vessel.

Eight years after the events of Vessel, the guardians of an ancient treasure are living in New York. Secrecy has long served as their protection, but in an increasingly connected, technological world, remaining hidden is not as easy as once it was.

Someone knows what they have, and means to take it from them.

Present and ancient past are set to collide, and prove that not all myths are fantasy, and not all legends are lies....

Fast paced and action packed!

This action-packed story is full of well-developed characters. The story speeds along and keeps the reader on the edge of their set, I opted for the audiobook on this one and found that I had to pay closer attention than usual because I was missing out on the action! Great narration aids in keeping the list of characters straight. I did not realize until I came to review that I had selected a sequel, so obviously this is a good stand alone!

Excellent sequel

8 years after Holly, Gabriel and Jin escape with the item they have dubbed the "holy grail", Gabe accidentally brings attention to their whereabouts and a group of mercenaries mean to take it from them. An unknown ally helps them escape and hunt down the group, but nothing could prepare the trio for the truth. The truth about history, the truth about the " grail".

This is book 2 in the series, but it can easily be read as a stand-alone. As I listened back to back after book 1, it did take me a little while to get to grips with change of narrator but this was still a great listen.

Synopsis

Eight years after the events of Vessel, the guardians of an ancient treasure are living in New York.
Secrecy has long served as their protection, but in an increasingly connected, technological world, remaining hidden is not as easy as once it was.
Someone knows what they have, and means to take it from them.
Present and ancient past are set to collide, and prove that not all myths are fantasy, and not all legends are lies....

While this is book 2 in the series I feel it could be read and understood as a stand-alone
It’s so so lovely to catch up and spend time with the characters again
The book moved at lightning speed full of action and top class adventure I was totally hooked to find out what would happen next
The story feels well researched and detailed I loved the fantasy aspects
I would love to see this ultimately made into a movie I hope there will be more …..
