    One thought on “The Sword of Moses”

    1. As soon as I began reading Dominic Selwood's The Sword of Moses, the first violent scene told me it would be hard to put down. A capable main character kept me engaged while controversial historical enigmas kept me intrigued. The author's seamless blend of historical fact and tantalizing fiction had me mesmerized and consuming the chapters non-stop. This was a very exciting read and worth picking up. Dr. Ava Curzon thinks the world of her father and followed in his footsteps. They share the same [...]

    2. Oh my goodness!!!! This book is absolutely fantastic, fanbloodytastic. I had this book downloaded on my Kindle for a few months, and never really thought much about it, till I thought I would give it a go. I'm so glad I did.The book took me over 6 weeks to read, which is unusual for me, but just having started a new job and reading is the last thing I do at night to relax me before I go to sleep. I have been that tired that even though I was determined to read the book, I was actually falling as [...]

    3. The Sword of Moses is one of those rare books that pulls you from the 1st sentence and doesn't let go. It is full of action, really bad bad guys, a determined protagonist and a fantastic mix of fiction, occult, Nazis, Knights Templars,Freemasons, Mossad, religious history and archaeology.Dr. Ava Curzon is former member of the British M16 turned archaeologist working in Iraq trying to recover lost art from the museum. Her reason for leaving M16 was the unexplained death of her father. All she was [...]

    4. If this is one of the first books of this gender you read, or if you REALLY adore this gender, than the odds are that you will like it. It has what promises: action and mystery, with a good structured plot, and a cocktail of, well, everything: neo-Nazis, tension Orient/Occident, betrayals, Freemasons, Judaic-Christian mythology, secret organizations, long lost treasures, codes, etc, etc.In my 'reader's frame', however, this book is an 'it was ok'. First of all, because of the exposition. I know [...]

    5. "Das Gottessiegel" ist der erste Band einer Trilogie um Ava Curzon, eine renommierte Archäologin, die zuvor beim Geheimdienst gearbeitet hat. Als die vermeintliche Bundeslade auftaucht, wird sie um eine Überprüfung der Echtheit gebeten - doch was zunächst als sensationeller, aber ungefährlicher Auftrag beginnt, gerät rasch außer Kontrolle und wird zu einem lebensgefährlichen Wettlauf, einer Suche nach dem mysteriösen Artefakt und der Erkenntnis, dass hinter all dem noch viel mehr steckt [...]

    6. A huge tome of a book, over 1800 pages on my e reader and every page was an exciting turner. A search for the ark of the covenant, said to contain the Hebrew treasures from their trek in the desert and an in depth history of the parties interested in finding it. There are neo nazis who think it will give them the start of the fourth reich, The Jewish nation who believe it is the foundation of their history, the Templar knights who were charged with its safety over the centuries even after the or [...]

    7. I bought this book quite a while ago and had forgotten Id got it until scrolling through my kindle in search of something new and from a new author to me and re-found this - it is an excellent read very long some have said too long but I'm undecided. It is full of fascinating facts and the Knights Templar, Ark of the Covenant, the Occult and other things. The heroine is well developed character with a few interesting traits and the other characters are also well developed. All in all it is a wel [...]

    8. The Sword of MosesAs I have a pHD in Archaeology, I was afraid this novel would be typical of the genre; all thrills, chills and very unrealistic practices. However, I was pleased to see sound research and conceivable conjectures, along with truly well-rounded characters and an engaging plot. Very well done.

    9. Ok read. Not really a fan of heroes that are always brilliant and survive against all odds. The biblical historical aspect of the story line kept me reading. I thought the ending was sloppy and of course our hero will continue to save the day in the future.

    10. This book was 400 pages too long. I only ended up finishing it because of a book club challenge where you got more points for a book you DNF. No plans to read the next one!

    11. EngagingWell written, fun and most of all splendidly vivid. An excellent read with memorable characters who many will be eager to join in their next adventure. Bravo!

    12. Really enjoyed this story plot and the book was well written, although it was long. Look forward to reading the next in the trilogy.

    13. An exciting ride for your mindAs a fun to read political thriller, as well as a source of academic thought and cultural study, this is a great read.

    14. Great readI love a long novel. Characters are interesting. And I learned some historical facts woven through the story. My favorite

    15. A no-put-down till done. Exciting, characters were believable and fascinating, plot was ingenious. Luved every part of it. Even though it was a long story, I just couldn't stop reading.

    16. Dan Brown meets Indiana Jones in a fairly unoriginal plot. A fun read but I am suprised by the gushing reviews. I really enjoyed the scene setting until he began describing England very inaccurately which made me doubt the rest. Some scenes were a little laughable - we've only got seconds left so we will stop to admire the architecture and discuss the art work.For all its faults I really did enjoy it.

    17. Interesting historical research but in dire need of a more ruthless editor. This novel is padded with needlessly long and patronising descriptions.I was also disappointed with the damp squib ending. After all the teasing the payoff was a letdown.

    18. For an adventure, I would give this book five stars. I read about half of it before I saw how long it was. however, on some of the religious aspects and content, I would give it a one. After awhile, I felt there was an agenda other than telling a story. I felt that the author was attempting to disregard God and those who chose to follow him. Where the author saw mysticism, occultic practices, and ceremonies involving the worship of other "god's", I see that God will not be denied. We as humans m [...]

    19. As a lover of books by the likes of Dan Brown, Sam Bourne and Chris Kuzneski I enjoy all things about historical artifacts and the various ways and reasons people hunt for them. This book had the lot, in spades. From the Knights Templar through to Freemasons and Nazis Mr Selwood has obviously done his research well. Although very long I found this book riveting, a real page turner.The characters, from the amazing Dr Curzon, a cross between Lara Croft and Robert Langdon, right through all the sup [...]

    20. Gripping archaeological action thriller:This is an action packed thriller right from the start. Similar in style to the "Da Vinci Code". It is crammed full of classical and medieval historical and religious facts guaranteed to increase your General Knowledge. The author, Dominic Selwood is an expert on this theme and it clearly shows. The main characters all have depth and the story is narrated from different perspectives which ensures your interest doesn't wane. The plot is devised to keep you [...]

    21. A friend of mine told me The Sword of Moses was similar to Dan Brown’s novels, and I was not disappointed. Although the book is a little lengthy for my tastes, Dominic Selwood weaves history, religions, politics, and magic together seamlessly in this book, creating a world of mystery, intrigue, and conspiracy that is hard to put down and equally as hard to guess what will happen. The rich historical and religious details added to my enjoyment of the novel, although occasionally I felt some of [...]

    22. I am a fan of fast paced action novels. Matthew Reilly and Lee Child are two of my favourites. Dominic Selwood has just joined this group.From start to finish, this book kept me guessing, wondering what was going to happen, where we would be transported to next, and how the subsequent sticky situation was going to pan out. The book flows well and is very exciting.The thing that sets it apart for me, is the obvious knowledge of history and detail that has gone in to writing this book. It was fasc [...]

    23. Intriguing story filled with doses of history, religion, scary villains and fantastic treasures. Dr Ava Croft is an archeologist engaged by the US Army to help them recover the Ark of the Covenant stolen from the Aksum in Ethiopia. Her search puts her straight in the sights of Neo-Nazi crazies, black magic occults and a mix of intelligence agencies. The author has brilliantly researched and characterized the novel and leaves you wondering about the true story behind the rise of Christianity and [...]

    24. I bought this book as it was one suggested by Kindle after finishing reading some Michael Cordy books. I am a pretty slow reader, so I was originally a bit daunted by the length of it. It was immediately addictive, and I found the history captivating. It prompted me to do some reading around the topics mentioned in the story, all were equally as fascinating. There were some very very tense moments, and I often found myself reading under my covers in the middle of the night. Ava Curzon was a bril [...]

    25. I would have liked to have given this 3.5 stars. I enjoyed the historic and religious aspects and it was a well written, fast moving tale and very easy to read despite the length of the book. I didn't like the violence and there were parts of the book which I felt could have been left out as I didn't think they added much to what was already a complex story. This was a Book Club choice and not one I would have chosen to read but overall I'm glad I did.

    26. Very gripping, Indian Jones goes FemmeThis is a really gripping and exciting new series of sub-Dan Brown type archaeological puzzle adventures. Set all over, this couples the Ark of the Covenant, the Menora of ancient Jerusalem and, inevitably, the Knights Templar. Great story, a real page turner that should excite all Dan Brown readers but also encourage younger readers to try out an exciting, girl-based hero in the Modesty Blaize tradition.

    27. When archaeologist Ava Curzon is hired to find the stolen Ark of the Covenant which has been taken from Ethiopia and listed for sale to the highest bidder. She ends up in the far east and becomes involved with Knight's Templar, Neo-Nazis, and a host of extremists and countries who covet the prize, she ends up in terrible danger and involved in a demonic ritual. This is one of the best thrillers I have read in a long time. I am looking forward to more books by this author. Highly recommended.

    28. I received this book for free from a giveaway. I really enjoyed reading this very fast paced thriller. If you like the Da Vinci Code, Tomb Raider or Indiana Jones, then this is the book for you. Without giving the plot away, I can tell you it has the Ark of the Covenant, Knights Templar, Nazis, Satanists (even Aleister Crowley gets a mention), and lots and lots of violence. Well written and very well researched.
