    Masonic fiction is hard to come by, and good Masonic fiction even harder, but Karpovage has delivered both in Crown of Serpents Beyond the fact that it exists as a Masonic fiction, the book is a fun and exciting read and delivers on every level.

    Climbing down a hole to find a dead body that leads to the adventure of a lifetime is not what U.S Army Major Robert Jake Tununda had planned After twenty years of service and a chest full of metals he was looking forward to his new position with MHI or the Army s Military History Institute as a way to follow his passion of military history with out risking his life on a daily basis, or so he thought.But the body found in the well leads to the uncovering of the truth about a sacred herd of w Climbing down a hole to find a dead body that leads to the adventure of a lifetime is not what U.S Army Major Robert Jake Tununda had planned After twenty years of service and a chest full of metals he was looking forward to his new position with MHI or the Army s Military History Institute as a way to follow his passion of military history with out risking his life on a daily basis, or so he thought.But the body found in the well leads to the uncovering of the truth about a sacred herd of white deer confined in the fences of an abandoned Seneca Army Depot, a lake that never gives up its dead or its secrets, and the combining of the freemasons and the hunt for a ancient Indian crown of unknown power.Jake must find the answers to the location of the Crown of Serpents before Alex Nero, ruthless billionaire who is dying to control the crown gets there first Jake soon finds that following the clues left through history is full of unknown dangers.Crown of Serpents by Michael Karpovage is a well written story with just enough intrigue to keep you reading till the end and maybe wondering what lies beneath the ground you live on While this does well as a stand alone book, I hope Jake findsadventures in Karpovage s next book, I for one would read it.I won this copy from Goodreads and would recommend it to all who are looking for an adventure book that will keep you reading

    Who would think there was a connections between our American Indians and Masons This book is a great casual read to enjoy during fall afternoons and evenings.This book is derived from honest roots from the American Revolutionary War and the masonic connections between American Officer Boyd, British Officer Butler and American Indian Chief Brant Half Seneca Indian Jake Tununda tries to rescue a local who fell into an ancient Indian gravesite A button with a white deer holding a snake inside it Who would think there was a connections between our American Indians and Masons This book is a great casual read to enjoy during fall afternoons and evenings.This book is derived from honest roots from the American Revolutionary War and the masonic connections between American Officer Boyd, British Officer Butler and American Indian Chief Brant Half Seneca Indian Jake Tununda tries to rescue a local who fell into an ancient Indian gravesite A button with a white deer holding a snake inside it is found and kicks off a series of events to recover the Crown of Serpents.I loved learning about current Indian dynamics, politics and relationships Enter a ruthless and dying Alex Nero, an evil Casino owner who keeps a secret stash of old and new scalps hidden under this lair and you have the making of murder, arson and dishonesty.Now this is not the best written book I have ever read but I like it anyway Jake is great guy and is pure of heart I became tired of the police woman and her tough act Why can t someone write a book about a feminine police detective without a chip on her shoulder Okay my movie suggestions Jake Tununda Lou Diamond Phillips
