“The Columbus Code” by Mike Evans

The Columbus Code: A NovelThe Columbus Code: A Novel by Mike Evans
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

In this book, Evans challenges readers with a startling truth of Columbus being a Messianic Jew. This isn’t news, and it’s not altogether unexpected. What is unexpected, however, is the twists that Evans places in the life of Columbus and its far-reaching impacts to modern and apocalyptic times.

The book ends suddenly, much of the action occurring in the last ten percent of the book, leaving the reader building with anticipation that is either barely containable or enough to quit the read (the jury is still out on this one). Within those final pages, the characters come to the full realization of the impact of what the author foreshadowed and gently hinted at through the text, and the reader comes to the realization that this book is not a silo project, but rather simply a prelude to a larger story. Left with an anti-climatic rush and transition to a pause, reminiscent of the Lord of the Rings cinematic works, readers will be both satisfied simultaneously frustrated with the conclusion.

Without a doubt, this book is a fun read that engages the audience and only begs to be a completed story. With adventures that travel the world, include government conspiracies and corporate secrets, and end with a bang, the book is enjoyable, yet leaving the feeling of needing more, much like a fancy dinner with the portion a little small…
