"Daughters of The Grail" by Elizabeth Chadwick"

This is her latest book, published in Dec 2006

Synopsis
Thirteenth century France. Bridget has grown up mastering the mystical gifts of her ancestor, Mary Magdalene, whose unbroken female lineage has kept a legacy of wisdom alive for a thousand years. But the all-powerful Catholic Church has sworn to destroy Bridget for using her healing talents and supernatural abilities. Bridget's duty to continue the bloodline leads her into the arms of Raoul de Montvallant - a Catholic. But when the Church's savage religious intolerance causes Raoul to turn rebel, a terrible vengeance is exacted by Simon de Montfort, the unstoppable Catholic leader of a crusade against peaceful 'heretics'. As war rages on, it is the children of these passionate souls, Magda and Dominic, who must strive to preserve the ancient knowledge for future generations - and find the love and courage to endure...

At the moment I'm reading Hiroshima by John Hersey for school. It's a really good book and it makes you look at life a whole lot more, and the horrors of the war and everything. I suggest everyone reads it, it's an emotional book but it is worth the read.

That and I've just finished reading Frankenstein by Mary Shelley, my God it is such a wonderful book. It is one of the most brilliant books I have ever read, it is so sad, so emotional, so well written. Everything about it is amazing.
Two words,
READ. FRANKENSTEIN.

"The Codex" by Douglas Preston

Synopsis

'Greetings from the dead,' declares Maxwell Broadbent in the videotape he left behind after his mysterious disappearance. A notorious treasure hunter and tomb robber, Broadbent accumulated over half and a billion dollars' worth of priceless art, gems, and artefacts before vanishing - along with his entire collection - from his mansion in New Mexico. At first, robbery is suspected, but the truth proves far stranger: as a final challenge to his three sons, Broadbent has buried himself and his treasure somewhere in the world, hidden away like an ancient Egyptian pharaoh. If the sons wish to claim their fabulous inheritance, they must find their father's carefully concealed tomb. The race is on, but the three brothers are not the only ones competing for the treasure. With half a billion dollars at stake, as well as an ancient Mayan codex that may hold cure for cancer and other deadly diseases, others soon join the hunt and some of them will stop at nothing to claim the grave goods.

I think I would describe this as a Indiana Jones type story, very descriptive and fast moving. The book draws you in after only a few pages.

You are right, it's Henry James. :D I studied English language and literature, so I recognized the title.
P.S. I am not reading anything at the moment. So, guess I'm the saddest person here, Runaway Maggie. :(

Desmodus, tell us what Necronomicon is about. I agree, reading is meaningful...and it's a great way to build your vocabulary. I find words all the time I have to look up in the dictionary.

I started reading The Mayflower, got 1/2 way through (it's about 400 pages), and stopped after reading something that made me feel sick. Well, a lot of it made me sick...especially the parts where they would burn an Indian village, killing all who tried to escape their death. Men, women, children, all killed for land.

Now I'm reading "By My SIde", which is a romance novel (not my typical read) I only got because I had a dream I was at the library asking for the dvd. I woke up and remembered the title. My curiousity got the best of me so I had to see if they had something with that title and they did.

Respected Jamirocat:

Best wishes for all of you and your notes for me are so important.
Well, what can I answer?.......Hummmm, it is really a LONG story....I am not a bad person...or rude....I AM NOT. The fact is that is so long to explain but I can tell you these details.
1- It was the beginning of a real story of horror in Arabia, that was so real.
2- There are three main GENUINE books, of Necronomicon. The book I read is a changed version...but the version made by Lovecraft is OVERWHELMING.
3- The person who reads or who could have contact with ONE of the main books can fall into the deepest abyss of Hell, believe or not, it happens and it is true. I AM NOT JOKING.
Psdt: The writter, was a clearvoyant, and he died WATCHING DEMONS in the Sahara desert......

so......LET'S DIE AND BE IN HELL.........TTHE PLACE OF OUR SHADOWS AND DEEPEST SACRED SINS. :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:
AND GET MAD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
