It is a fantastic thriller that keeps you wondering what is happening next and how am I going to put the book down without missing the upcoming action.
It is like an exciting movie that keeps you on the edge of your seat and even when the movie ends, you want to repeat it thinking you might have missed something. The events keep moving and surprises are constantly happening.
The way this book is written, you are in the book's events and are nervously trying to second guess who and what is happening and how can I stay safe and hoping the results will end well for all the good guys. The continuing thought is that the bad guys are still out there (whoever the new figures will be) and being safe and free of the worry of future encounters with them.
The mindful question is always - where is the artifact and who will find it first and how will it affect mankind, good or bad? And so it begins (still).

Great surprises in this story, truly a page turner. I like the characters, each one has their own 'secret'. Got to visit places I've never heard of and learned some history as well. Read this book - you'll be hooked!

This book was a great read!!!
As a kid I read nearly every Michael Crichton book over and over again until the covers came off and the pages fell out. As a young adult I frequently read Tom Clancy Novels as well as similar authors. Up until a few years ago I had been mainly reading Dan Brown and J.K. Rowling.
Then my brother talked me into listening to books on tape, turning me to the dark side of books. I essentially stopped reading novels all together due to that and just having too much on my plate over the last several years.
I decided to give e-books a try since many e-book readers have the option to read you the book with a computerized voice. That way I could still continue the book while working on my Mac.
Needless to say I had set my standards high when I started reading Covenant Deception, considering the caliber of Authors that I mentioned above that I was accustomed to reading.
I found this book to be an exciting thrill ride that kept me guessing with each turn of the page. Angela brought her characters to life and pulled me into the world of her book. I felt like I was part the story, trying to solve the mystery before it was all too late.
The last several chapters were so riveting; I ended up staying up all night and well into the dawn reading. Clutching my e-book reader in the dark, hands clammy from anticipation, eyes strained trying not to blink. I just could not put it down until I finished.
My advice is to make sure you start reading in the morning so you don't end up losing sleep. Reader beware... This book is highly addictive! I feel like I need some kind of 9-step plan adrenaline arm patch to wean me off this book.
I am going to recommend that this book be used by hospitals to wake up people that are in a coma and prescribed to people who have been diagnosed with terminal boredom.
Do whatever it takes to get your hands on this book. Buy, beg, borrow, or steal. Ok maybe don’t steal it. But get it anyways.
I’m pretty sure the president of the United States will be making this book mandatory reading for all citizens. So you might as well get a head start.

I really enjoyed the twists and turns of Covenant Deception. There's lots of mystery and history. I like how you think you might know how something will turn out, but it doesn't end up that way. I liked the characters I met and the places I visited. If you want a great read, read Covenant Deception by Angela Schiavone.

Covenant Deception - A must read for any Mystery Novel fan. This Historical Fiction/Mystery/Thriller keeps the reader on their toes with each twist and turn that takes place while the story unfolds. As the plot thickens and a solution seems at hand we find that things are not as expected. In the spirit of Mystery Novels of the past, Angela Schiavone makes her characters come alive as we journey with them through the pages of her newest book making the reader want to meet them again in another work.

I really liked this book, lots of history and lots of surprises. At first it seems a bit predictable but things are not what they seem. Well worth the $2.95. Try it, you will be pleasantly surprised.
