We have the technology to clone human beings. But do we have the right? We have the ability to play God. But what if we could clone God? We can… And already did. An ancient prophesy predicts a dire future as past and present intertwine into a deadly dance of power with mankind as the ultimate pawn.
A supernatural event occurs at an Italian monastery in 1046 which starts a chain of events destined to affect the future of humanity. ‘The Shroud’ is a fast paced apocalyptic thriller with strong elements of horror and suspense.
They say the road to hell is paved with good intentions and that is the premise behind this cautionary tale. Fast forward to the 20th century when the ability to clone a human being exists. A group of well-meaning but sadly misguided priests and nuns persuade a genetic scientist with dubious morals to clone Jesus Christ.
‘The Shroud’ explores interesting themes. Full of plot twists and a cast of characters all with their unique parts to play in the drama that unfolds. Historical flashbacks provide clues to the mystery which I liked. Well written supernatural elements ensure a unique take on a much written about theme it definitely brings something new to the table.
Full of vivid imagery and explosive action this is a recommended nail-biting read.
I received a copy of this e-book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
