Publisher’s Description

When world-renowned Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon is summoned to a Swiss research facility to analyze a mysterious symbol—seared into the chest of a murdered physicist—he discovers evidence of the unimaginable: the resurgence of an ancient secret brotherhood known as the Illuminati…the most powerful underground organization ever to walk the earth. The Illuminati has now surfaced to carry out the final phase of its legendary vendetta against its most hated enemy—the Catholic Church.

Langdon’s worst fears are confirmed on the eve of the Vatican’s holy conclave when a messenger of the Illuminati announces they have hidden an unstoppable time bomb at the very heart of Vatican City. With the countdown under way, Langdon jets to Rome to join forces with Vittoria Vetra, a beautiful and mysterious Italian scientist, to assist the Vatican in a desperate bid for survival.

Embarking on a frantic hunt through sealed crypts, dangerous catacombs, deserted cathedrals, and even the most secretive vault on earth, Langdon and Vetra follow a 400-year-old trail of ancient symbols that snakes across Rome toward the long-forgotten Illuminati lair…a clandestine location that contains the only hope for Vatican salvation.

An explosive international thriller, Angels & Demons careens from enlightening epiphanies to dark truths as the battle between science and religion turns to war.

Book Review

This fast-paced thriller delivers nonstop action and intrigue as it follows world-renowned Harvard researcher Robert Langdon on a high-stakes mission. This book grips you from the beginning to the very last page!

I have often heard that the Da Vinci Code is better than Angels and Demons but in my opinion; Angels and Demons is Dan Brown at his best.

God answers all prayers, but sometimes his answer is ‘no’.

Dan Brown not only wrote a good novel but he also brought up the battle between religion and science. I love how he took historical events, places, and art and turned them into a thriller that left me wanting more.

Science tells me God must exist. My mind tells me I will never understand God. And my heart tells me I am not meant to.

This book is easy to recommend. It’s exactly what you’d expect and it doesn’t disappoint. If you’re looking for a fast-paced thriller that delivers nonstop action this book will not disappoint.
