: All I know is, if you don't figure out this something, you'll just stay ordinary, and it doesn't matter if it's a work of art, or a taco, or a pair of socks! Just create something... new, and there it is, and it's you, out in the world, outside of you, and you can look at it, or hear it, or read it, or feel it... and you know a little more about... you. A little bit more than anyone else does... Does that make any sense at all?" Quote from PS I LOVE YOU

The 13th Tribe - Book Review By Robert Liparulo

Jagger, his wife Beth and his son Tyler live in in a Monestary. Not just any Monestary, located at the base of Mount Sinai. The very mountain that Moses came down from an encounter with God with the 10 comandments. Though he stood sometimes on holy ground, Jagger was angry with God. He rubbed where his arm should have been, now replaced with a metal bar that served as his second arm. He lost his arm in an accident that killed his best friend and his best friend's family. Now he served as a security guard on these hallowed grounds while he tried to piece his life back together. Little did he know that 3500 years before-hand on this very same ground a unimaginable thing happened in 40 people's lives that would affect him today. They were 40 of the idol worshippers that could not wait for God to send Moses back down from the mountain. They worshipped their golden calf but drinking of blood. When Moses came down from the mountain and God opened up the depths of Hell to swallow the betrayers whole, they were spared. But once they awoke from the atrocities they realized that God had turned his back on them. They were not allowed to die, they were never to find favor with God and they were not allowed in the promised land. For 3500 years they plagued this Earth, trying every way possible to find favor with God. Their latest plan was to kill sinners to show God their loyalty. But when their plan brings them face to face with Jagger and his family, trouble ensues. With Jagger's family in danger, he has to find a way to stop these immortals and their evil plan. Will he make it in time, and will this encounter with the Immortals reconcile him with God?

It took me awhile to read this book I will admit. But I don't think it was because the book was slow I think it was from outside influences. But the book isn't as fast as many of the books I read. There is a lot of history in this book and much of it is Biblical. But the plot of the book is facinating. You can definitely feel the spiritual battles in this book between the bad and good characters. And I love how the characters struggle with some real issues. Like why bad things happen and if it is possible to earn favor into heaven with God. I think the book blurs the lines from fiction and fact well, possibly making many of the readers want to explore more into the Bible to discover the facts. During the middle and the ends of the book the plot keeps going faster and has more twists and turns. I do feel that the author left the book open ended for possibly a sequel. I really enjoyed this book and felt like I was gaining a secret look into the time of Moses.

I was provided a copy of this book for the purpose of a review by , I was not paid to give a good review. These thoughts are mine alone.
