Book Review: The 13th Tribe by Robert Liparulo

Title:  The 13th Tribe
Author:  Robert Liparulo
Publisher:  Thomas Nelson
Pages: 416

The 13th Tribe is a thriller that spans time from the Biblical days of Exodus to modern times.  On one side of the story we have a band of zealots bent of justice and on the other, a simple security guard trying to live a normal life.

Liparulo is an excellent writer.  Descriptive, but not tiring, witty, but not corny, he was able to keep my attention throughout the whole book.

Liparulo spins a wonderful web of suspense, Biblical history, and an interesting look at judgement and grace all with a Biblical backdrop.  

This is not a read for the squeamish as there are some fairly violent battle scenes.  

I really enjoyed this book and would recommend it to anyone looking for a book with great adventures and several excellent twists and turns thrown in the mix. 

5/5 Stars

A big thank you to Thomas Nelson publishers for a review copy of this book.
