The Proof


Shrouded in mystery, a precious relic known as Il Testamento, or The Proof, circulated among the early Christians for centuries. Before their deaths, its guardians hid it from their adversaries, leaving only a crude map of its location.

For centuries, it lay in darkness. Until now. Reports of its existence have resurfaced, inciting an ancient rivalry between a ruthless group that seeks to destroy it, and a secret association that lusts for its power.

Summoned to Siena by a grandfather he has never met, Gabriel Dolcini is thrust into a dark maze of danger. And into his divine destiny.


“For 800 years, it lay in darkness. Until now." 

My Impressions: 

Amazing story, filled with mystery and suspense. Could not put this book down. I love conspiracy and secret society books, they are fascinating and captivating. This book did not let me down once. It draws you in with the cover to pique your curiosity and keeps going from their. I love getting these books and researching the truth from the fiction within, really gets the blood going. Plus you learn some more about history that you never knew. 

I loved the characters. You could tell how much time and effort were put into breathing life into them. You got attached, you could relate, your heart broke for them. Just really great character development that made the book with strong family bonds that you cannot ignore. 

The maps-really need I say more. No secret society/conspiracy is complete without some great awe inspiring ruggedly drawn maps that frustrate you, inspire you and lead you all at once.  Plus the story is set in Italy so you get this wonderful imagery throughout that makes you feel like you were transported within the story. 

Easy book to recommend to art lovers, history buffs and all those that love a great mystery and conspiracy.
