The Lucifer Gospel by Paul Christopher

This is the second book in a series of history-based thrillers.  This one revolves around a medalion that is found in the Libyan desert during an archeological dig. The medallion is inscribed with the phrase “Hic Latito Lux Excito – Vox Luceferus” or here lies hidden the bringer of light, the words of lucifer.  Hm.  This is the second book in a series about Finn Ryan, a young archeologist who is following in her father’s footsteps.  What she is also finding out is that her father also worked with the CIA as a spy, what a better way to find out more about someone than to work as a professor working on an archeological dig?  🙂  I started reading these stories as I love history and I enjoy books that leave me wanting to find out more about the subject of which I am reading.  I really enjoyed reading more about Libya and some of the archeological treasures that they are finding there.  However, I have to say that while I enjoyed the book, the ending was abrupt and a tad confusing.  I felt the first one also had an abrupt, too tidy ending.  I have already purchased number 3 but at this rate I am not sure how far I will get in the series.  But it has great potential!
