    House of Wolves was amazing I loved the fact that the author used fact and fables regarding Hitler s obsession with relics to come up with one dynamic tale Only I wouldn t recommend getting attached to some of the characters as they tended to get picked off by the killers along the way This novel sort of reminds me of Relentless by Robin Parrish or Germ by Robert Liparulo in that it is fast paced and there is a serious manhunt going on with many casualties and a lot of gruesome stuff done wit House of Wolves was amazing I loved the fact that the author used fact and fables regarding Hitler s obsession with relics to come up with one dynamic tale Only I wouldn t recommend getting attached to some of the characters as they tended to get picked off by the killers along the way This novel sort of reminds me of Relentless by Robin Parrish or Germ by Robert Liparulo in that it is fast paced and there is a serious manhunt going on with many casualties and a lot of gruesome stuff done with knives Oh, and things blowing up, lots of chasing scenes, and shooting guns, etc Doesn t that just sound like an action packed story It wasn t too gross for me, though, and I tend to be a wimp.The quality of the author s writing and the plot was very well done Bronleewe has a unique story telling style For people who like National Treasure and Indiana Jones type stories, this is sure to please I also loved how things turned out in the end for the main characters For an action thriller type novel, this ranks toward the top of my list The twists and turns were believeable and well done It held my attention and the plot details fascinated me I don t know how the author kept track of all of that information and how he tied it together, but it seemed flawless Great story I can t wait for the next installment

    I picked up this book at a used book store while traveling I ve never read any of author, Matt Bronleewe s, books before I believe that after reading his book, House of Wolves , that I will definitely look for past and present titles that this author has written An ancient book, ancient map, and a ancient cult of bad guys trying to decipher both and take over the world Of course, the good guys are trying to decipher both, as well, and prevent an ancient evil from becoming the world s ruling I picked up this book at a used book store while traveling I ve never read any of author, Matt Bronleewe s, books before I believe that after reading his book, House of Wolves , that I will definitely look for past and present titles that this author has written An ancient book, ancient map, and a ancient cult of bad guys trying to decipher both and take over the world Of course, the good guys are trying to decipher both, as well, and prevent an ancient evil from becoming the world s ruling class And, of course, the good guys win in the end But it was an adventurous book that was a very enjoyable read I don t know if Mr Bronleewe s other books are as good as this one, but if you you want an enjoyable read, I would recommend that you pick up a copy of, House of Wolves

    I like this and bought the next one I like whatever this genre is and I especially like his notes at the end helping to measure out fiction and non fiction from the story I guess I m officially a fan of his music and his writing too now Really like the flawed characters and how we see the August s family change between the first and second books.

    Watch Out Indiana Jones Lovers August Adams is Here A mysterious book with a dangerous secret An evil brotherhood out to conquer the world One man stands between themwith his family in the

called The Gospels of Henry The Lion.The manuscript has been showing up and disappearing ever since Watch Out Indiana Jones Lovers August Adams is Here A mysterious book with a dangerous secret An evil brotherhood out to conquer the world One man stands between themwith his family in the balance.In the twelfth century, Henry the Lion collected the rarest relics in Christendom And to protect his most precious acquisitions, he encoded the whereabouts in a gorgeous illuminated manuscript called The Gospels of Henry The Lion.The manuscript has been showing up and disappearing ever since No one knows where the relic has been hiddenor its ultimate power.Only one man holds the key to the mystery.He s carrying it in a briefcase at his son s school for show and tell, and he thinks it s a fake But he s about to find out just how real it is.Because the wolves are rapidly closing in And if August Adams can t decode the secret in time, the world s balance of power will forever be altered.REVIEW Be prepared to enter August Adams world of non stop action, heartfelt adventure filled with intrigue, suspense, humor and love And, not necessarily in that order Beware once you pick this book up and start reading, you will lose all track of time and forget anything you had scheduled that day I have to admit that I was a little less than excited about reading this book when I looked at the cover House of Wolves I really didn t want to read about wolves or blood I m very happy to report that there is lots of action, fighting, gun fights, bloodshed and bad guys acting really badbut nothing is extremely graphic I loved it August Adams is one likeable guy who reminds me of an Indiana Jones type character Adams is a man totally into his work, who loves books and really enjoys the challenge of chasing down rare antiques That s his specialty, rare antique books He gets into the most unpredictable situations while researching the locations of these rare books, and then guarding them once they are found I loved August s quick wit and sense of humor like Indiana Jones And just like in the National Treasure movies, relics have to be found in order to chase down the treasure In August s case, the books are the treasure.In House of Wolves , August Adams isn t looking for an adventure But the action and adventure grab him as he is watching his son, Charlie, as his ex wife goes out with her new fianc to pick out rings He couldn t believe she was doing that He felt it was a little bit soon, but he couldn t think about that right now he had Charlie to think about.August Adam s father sends him the greatest birthday present or so he thought it was at the time , in the mail He thinks it s from his father, but there s no card with it Who else would send him such a rare find While August is admiring the great condition of the book, he starts to feel sick to his stomach when he realizes exactly what book this is He knows his father, Cleveland, shouldn t have it and he can t imagine what his father did to get this book Why did his Cleveland send it to him This can t be good August doesn t have to wait long to get answers to his questions A secret society soon discovers that Mr August Adams is in possession of the book they want, and they will stop at nothing to get it August will have to thank his dad for sending such unbelievable trouble his way after he stops some guy from killing him and Charlie and so the adventure begins in House of Wolves.Just when you think August is in the clear, something else happens But, it may not necessarily happen to him I was intrigued by the many interesting characters in this book, and so much was happening, but it all tied together This book is definately a page turner I loved never knowing what to expect with each chapter I read This book was so refreshing because it is not a formula style book.There is a special bonus at the end of this book in the author notes Here the author tells the reader which parts of the story are real and which parts he added to make the story work Not only did Matt reveal which events are factual, but he also tells which relics are real Wow Since I m not a history buff, I wasn t aware that some of the events depicted in the House of Wolves were real It was quite amazing I have to say I love learning about history this way You will definitely want to check out Illuminated the first book in this series where you will learn how August Adams became the book hunter I know you ll enjoy all the adventures he got himself into before House of Wolves The third book called The Deadly Hours , is to be on bookshelves August 2009, mark your calendar I know I have.Disclosure of Material Connection I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher I was

    We first met rare book scout August Adams in Matt Bronleewe s novel Illuminated A purloined Gutenberg Bible sent Adams and his family on the adventure of a lifetime Now he s back in House of Wolves, and the rare book du jour is The Gospels of Henry the Lion Like in Illuminated, this book is real, too Published in 1188, the title actually sold for 12 million in 1983 No one knows for sure who bought it at the Sotheby auction a camouflaged military plane was sent from Berlin to collect it , b We first met rare book scout August Adams in Matt Bronleewe s novel Illuminated A purloined Gutenberg Bible sent Adams and his family on the adventure of a lifetime Now he s back in House of Wolves, and the rare book du jour is The Gospels of Henry the Lion Like in Illuminated, this book is real, too Published in 1188, the title actually sold for 12 million in 1983 No one knows for sure who bought it at the Sotheby auction a camouflaged military plane was sent from Berlin to collect it , but Matt Bronleewe has penned a novel that gives us his best guess.From the New York Public Library to Antarctica, House of Wolves spans the globe in typical thriller fashion, withtwists and turns than San Francisco s Lombard Street We never know who or what will show up next, and that s what makes this novel a true page turner Fans of Illuminated will be pleased to see August s ex wife April and son Charley are back But evenfamily mayhem ensues as August Adam s estranged father, from whom August gets his love of books, plays a key role too.How does Bronleewe come up with these elaborate stories He starts with a fascinating historical element and weaves the facts seamlessly with his imagination Says Bronleewe about The Holy Vehm, a secret society that plays a prominent role They certainly existed within the ranks of the Nazis symbolically and about The Gospels of Henry the Lion being lost for fifty years prior to its 1983 sale Bronleewe says, Some research suggests that the Nazis stole The Gospels of Henry the Lion from a bank vault during WWII I used that best guess while plotting House of Wolves borrows from many adventure movies, but most notably the National Treasure franchise It s easy to imagine Nicolas Cage playing August Adams like he did Ben Gates Both leads possess sharp minds able to decipher clues, maps and codes with lightning speed They aren t super heroes their skills come from their knowledge, not their brawn, and that s what makes them endearing.But it s the rare book angle that sets Bronleewe s stories of international intrigue apart Even if you re not a bibliophile you can t help but be intrigued about books so rare men and women would kill for them Apparently August Adams has some amazing sources because it remains to be seen just where he finds all these valuable titles in the cut throat world of antiquarian books At times, a pause in the action for some character development would ve been nice, but that s a lot to ask of a thriller Bronleewe is on par with Ted Dekker s relentless pacing in this department, and it s certainly not hurting either of them.There s a little less graphic gore in House of Wolves than in Illuminated, but the body count still piles up The spiritual message is almost non existent, but there s no offensive language or sexual undertones Knowing that going in you can sit back and enjoy this terrific conspiracy novel Even the most astute reader won t be able to guess the surprises.Illuminated shot Bronleewe out of the starting gate, but House of Wolves makes him the one to watch

    So I was really looking for a good popcorn book to read on a flight between NH and Utah I saw this book in the bookstore and figured what the heck On the whole the book isn t horrible, it just wasn t great.It sells itself as a Indiana Jones meets National Treasure type of thriller However, it seems to almost be made up of happenstance instead of deliberate action There is the occasional misdirection and red herring in the book, but the ending and final reveal seem a little too contrived.Th So I was really looking for a good popcorn book to read on a flight between NH and Utah I saw this book in the bookstore and figured what the heck On the whole the book isn t horrible, it just wasn t great.It sells itself as a Indiana Jones meets National Treasure type of thriller However, it seems to almost be made up of happenstance instead of deliberate action There is the occasional misdirection and red herring in the book, but the ending and final reveal seem a little too contrived.The secret society is intriguing and reading the excerpt at the end about what Matt went through to find out the information about the society makes the realism really pop So I have to give it props for that little bit of historical data This book really made me want to like itit just didn t deliver on it
