Dead Sea Conspiracy By Jerry B. Jenkins + GIVEAWAY

Dead Sea Conspiracy JustRead Blog Tour 

Welcome to the Blog Tour for Dead Sea Conspiracy by Jerry B. Jenkins, hosted by JustRead Publicity Tours! I was sent this book as part of this book tour. The review is my personal opinion.


Dead Sea Conspiracy

Title: Dead Sea Conspiracy
Series: Dead Sea Chronicles #2
Author: Jerry B. Jenkins
Publisher: Worthy Books
Release Date: August 23, 2022
Genre: Christian Suspense, Dual Timeline (Biblical & Contemporary) 

In Book 2 of the Dead Sea Chronicles, archaeologist Nicole Berman is about to discover the key to unifying three major religions, if a dangerous and evil enemy doesn’t stop her first. 

She is the first woman to be awarded a permit to lead a dig in Saudi Arabia and believes what she hopes to discover has the power to rewrite history. She assembles a team that will ultimately surprise – and in some cases – betray her. In a parallel storyline, readers are launched back to ancient Ur where young Abram is sent to learn from his forebears, who tell him firsthand stories of being on the ark during the Great Flood.

My Review:

This was an interesting conclusion to this duology. While in the first book the first two timelines didn't make sense on how they'd come together, after reading book two I look at it as a funnel. In book one the timelines are far apart, but the closer we got to Abraham's life it starts to come together.

Book two picks up right where the first one leaves off. Doctor Nicole still seems like a flat character. The author tries to write her as intense, but oftentimes I didn't find her to be that strong of a character. She has an end goal in mind, but seems very naive to what her dig means to not only her team, the Saudis, and the world at large although she says she does.

There were parts of the story that got my attention, especially as more comes to light in regards to those on her team, but other parts of her storyline felt like space filler. There is an interesting twist that I was rather surprised about. I also felt like the author was really trying hard to get a message across about salvation that didn't seem...subtle? It just didn't feel like it flowed "naturally"?

I ended up liking the Biblical times timeline better this time. I think it's because I read the book and didn't listen to it. Terah is still a rather simpering man. I liked that God didn't give up on him even after all of the evil he did. Honestly, I would've preferred to follow his wife, Belessunu. lol She was much easier to read and like, but then we wouldn't have been able to see the change in Terah and his (very weak) faith in the Lord.

I ended up liking how the storylines ended in both times, although I would've liked more closure in the current timeline. I could see more books springing off the current timeline. I liked that the Biblical time followed Scripture and the stories we know about Abraham, Sarah, and Issac.
