Godsword by Emerson Cole


Connor Brock is concerned when his friend, Matt Ferguson, goes missing on an Investigation of Corporate Espionage (ICE) mission. Matt’s abduction is part of the plan of a relentless and intelligent enemy. An enemy that plans on using terrorism and a dangerous artifact from Alexander the Great’s missing tomb to rule the world…

Godsword is an adventure thriller with elements of a financial thriller. It has the financial thriller element of corporate intrigue: very hostile takeovers, how business can grant political power and a chilling look at how terrorism might be used for financial gain. It has the adventure thriller ingredients of fun characters, an entertaining plot and environments the reader would not experience ordinarily. The buddy duo, Brock and Ferguson, clearly know how to balance one another. For instance, Brock reflects on how Ferguson balances out Brock’s seriousness with humor and helps him focus. The villain, Subedei, is a villain the reader likes to dislike due to his subtle and ruthless intelligence. The plot is entertaining because the reader becomes caught up in the quests of defeating Subedei’s cunning strategy and finding Alexander the Great’s tomb. Godsword gives the reader a chance to learn about the environments of corporate misdoings and Egypt. Corporate misdoings are shown to be subtle and ruthless. The reader sees that Egypt’s history contains many interesting personalities and exists over an immense time span. Godsword is a good choice for those wanting an adventure thriller, some corporate intrigue, a trip to an exotic locale and/or the search for the solution of an archeological mystery.
