ABOUT THE BOOK
It began when Moses was on Mt. Sinai. Tired of waiting on the One True God, the twelve tribes of Israel began worshipping a golden calf through pagan revelry. Many received immediate death for their idolatry, but 40 were handed a far worse punishment-endless life on earth with no chance to see the face of God.
This group of immortals became the 13th Tribe, and they've been trying to earn their way into heaven ever since-by killing sinners. Though their logic is twisted, their brilliance is undeniable. Their wrath is unstoppable. And the technology they possess is beyond anything mere humans have ever seen.
Jagger Baird knows nothing about the Tribe when he's hired as head of security for an archaeological dig on Mt. Sinai. The former Army Ranger is still reeling from an accident that claimed the life of his best friend, his arm, and his faith in God.

My review of The 13th Tribe:
When I first received this book for review, there was one question on my mind, “am I going to like it?” I really wasn’t sure because I have never read a book by Robert Liparulo and I really wasn’t sure that I was going to be interested in the story. It did take me a while to get into the story, but once it picked up and the story got really interesting, I read it fairly quickly. The mix of Biblical history with suspense was something I have not seen in any other books before. There was a little too much action in this book, which is something I just don’t care for. I’m not sure why I prefer less action, I just do. This book did go by fairly quickly. I liked how the chapters were short. Not only did that make the book a faster read, but it also made it harder to put down because I found myself wanting to read “just one more chapter”.
Overall, I would say that The 13th Tribe is a good book. Not quite my favorite type of book to read, but I still felt that my time was well spent and I learned a few things. Robert Liparulo is an interesting author and there are some of his previous releases that actually interest me more than this book did, so I’ll have to give them a go. I think that any fan of Robert’s will really like this book and any suspense and history fans will find this an interesting read.
