Book Review: The Pegasus Secret by Gregg Loomis

The Pegasus Secret The Pegasus Secret by Gregg Loomis
My rating: of 5 stars

The only good thing this book had was... Sintra.

The setting for the last 20 or 30 pages is in Portugal. Mainly in Sintra. It sure gives the feeling that the writing has been here or at least has google maps uptaded. The information on IC19 traffic and Sintra "little" villas are great.

About the book itself. You've got two stories in the same book. One divided in 6 parts, each with 5 or 6 pages, inbetween the main story, about a servant of Templar Order (until the end) and the other nowadays as a man (Lang Reilly, ex-CIA - now lawyer) tries to uncover why his sister and son were killed.

In terms of depth character, only Lang Reilly is given some background and devolpment (too unrealistic in my opinion - with the love story inbetween, nevertheless would be nice to see in the cinema Gurt).

Besides this, you've got a history lesson & Da Vinci Code & 24 (a bit more but you get the point) as a man uncovers the truth behind a painting that leads him to Templar Order.

The truth behind the painting is one that I really saw in other books. So Christ really died and his body was transported to France meaning that the Christian Church was founded based on... twisted truths. It was interesting that, again as seen on other books the Cathars and Gnostics were correct. Oh, and the Templars are alive and well with connections everywhere - Done! The ending and the understanding was weak in my opinion. The Templars would had their way if they were all that powerful.

In the end, as a couple other books I review this year - they are good history (pseudo-history mayhaps) stories mixed with conspiracies theories. Good for brake from other novels.
