Book review of Finding Sheba and Beneath by Heather Moore, H.B. Moore

"Finding Sheba" by Heather Moore is a romantic, tragic, thriller book all rolled into one. I can't imagine how many months it took the author to gather historic information about Queen Sheba and the Middle East to make it seem as accurate as possible. It took me a couple chapters to really get into the story line because it kept jumping from character to character and their particular story. However, by the end of the book the characters all came together so it made more sense why the book was written that way. I got so involved in the characters stories that I didn't want to put my kindle down. I didn't know who to trust, who was telling the truth, and who would be the betrayer. I liked the history aspect and using the bible as their reference during the quest. It was so intriguing to read what really happened to Queen Sheba and how secrets can alter or change the course of history and peoples heritage. I can't wait to read more adventures involving "Omar Zagouri". Oh-and I think this book would make an awesome movie!!

Book Description:
An ancient legend is reborn . . . One that might prove the Bible false.

For centuries, historians have theorized the Queen of Sheba as only a seductive legend, and scholars have debated over the legitimacy of King David or King Solomon. When undercover Israeli agent, Omar Zagouri, stumbles onto a tomb in Northern Jerusalem he unknowingly finds the final clue that threatens to overthrow government claim to the Holy Land, pits wealthy collectors against one another, and sends ruthless archaeologists scrambling to find the queen’s secret burial place. An assassination attempt on the Coptic Pope, His Holiness, Patriarch Stephanus II, is only the first in the chain of lethal crimes. Omar must find a way to prevent the greatest discovery of the century from becoming the most deadly. 

I read "Finding Sheba" back in August so I was thrilled to read this short story this month by the same author. I was so enthralled with the story that when it ended I thought my kindle had make a mistake and not downloaded the entire story!! ;-) I kept forgetting it was a short story. I loved that "Beneath" introduced the two main characters that were in "Finding Sheba". This book is 8 chapters long. I loved it!! Thanks Heather!!
