    As reviewed at Indie Books R Us Never having read The Da Vinci Code I know, you can flog me later , I was able to go into Carter Vance s book without any sort of bias And while the storyline and ideas were engaging, the book simply didn t work for me as a reader.The book is told from multiple viewpoints We meet Geoff, an American banker vacationing at his friend s estate in France Jacques, said friend and secret Templar Knight and Sarah and Peter, whose relationship is vital to the story s plot.

    This book came to me comparing it to the Da Vinci Code, so I m expecting NOT to like it The cover is Christian and in keeping with the theme of the book, but the title and author name is lack lustre It doesn t stand out among the rest in its genre The blurb was full of If you like a great story you will like The Return , which irked a bit Basically, the story is good verses evil.The look inside opens to an investment banker called Geoff having a holiday in France with his friend Jacques, but on [...]

    Carter Vance took a real risk, stepping into a difficult genre that is ruled by Dan Brown The author is to be commended for an excellent story line and superb research.I found the Dan Brown esque style to be engaging and the strong point of the novel I am a reader who loves Biblical prophecy, end times eschatology, and especially when it is rolled into a modern day tale Who doesn t enjoy reading about the Knights Templar, and their place in history I, too, enjoyed the short chapters, ala James P [...]

    I received this book to give an honest review I am giving this book a 4 1 2 star rating It was really good, but there was a part that didn t make me really believe this person What happens if the Holy Grail was not a cup or something material but of a person How would that change things With The Return, we follow the Templars and how they go to the ends of the Earth to protect the Holy Grail We follow Sarah and Peter and their journey of bringing to the world someone who is very important Now w [...]

    My Review This is an interesting book about the prophecy of the return or Christ It delves into a lot of little known prophecy of the Holy Grail and the ark and the signs of the second coming The author builds around the new Holy mother giving birth and the Knights of Templar a group long thought to be extinct protecting her and the babe from the forces of dark It is a fast moving story maybe a little too fast I would have liked to have the people developed a little so I cared deeply for them [...]

    Oh My God This was truly amazing The concept of Jesus Christ coming back was truly nice It reminded me a lot of Dan Brown s Da Vinci Code but only some part of it The story is as original as it gets The research done is impeccable and the narration goes well too.Just at some parts, the narration gets a bit dragged along but that doesn t last for long Carter Vance does a really nice job with the story and makes the reader really curious to step on to the next book The second book The Reawakening [...]

    This is a mystery thriller in the style of Dan Brown s The Da Vinci Code, so if you enjoyed it you might find this book interesting It borrows some themes from Dan Brown s work, notably SangReal referring to Royal Blood and Jesus progeny rather than the cup of the Last Supper.The novel is fast paced, and the action keeps on coming The characters are sympathetic if somewhat black and white I did find myself engaged by the protagonists and wanting to read of their story This is the first in a ser [...]

    This book comes off as trying to work in the stylized craft that Dan Brown s The Da Vinci Code managed to achieve The plot is extremely rushed right off from the beginning While there are aspects of interesting historical interlude, the timing just does not allow for any reader focus The concepts need to be further explained and a story developed.Note I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

    Disclaimer This book was provided by the author in exchange for an honest review What would happen in the world as it is today if the prophecy of the second coming of Christ were to come true What elements would be in play How would religion as a whole, the military, civilians, and even the devil act What exactly would happen It is apparent that these were the questions the author asked himself when writing the book This is a story of layer upon layer of religious mythology, military protocol an [...]

    I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review Spoilers within I m just going to say it right off This book didn t work for me.I ve read some other reviews and I agree with some of the things they said and disagree with others First, I agree that there are no characters in this book I can summarize everything about a character in one line.Sarah She donates to charity and such and is horribly rich.Peter He runs a big shipping company place and is horribly rich.Regina She ser [...]

    So it seems that in much of the visual media that permeates today s culture there is an underlying theme of religion Even if not factored explicitly into the plot of the work itself, it exists in the murmurmings of secondary characters or in the historical context of the birth of a story The DaVinci Code Yup Pi To a certain extent The Chronicles of Narnia Duh What is the value of this religious presence Is it to present a certain level of comfort for the fickle, aged and 1% s who are active read [...]

    I really struggled to get through this one For personal and technical reasons Let s begin with the technical ones, shall we The writing is very dull It very much reads like an itinerary These are the events, this is what happened I don t know what these people feel and how they think They are all very one dimensional The writing lacked any flair or creativity For example, one sentence that really stuck out to me was It looked old, because it was Really Come on now Why not The imposing stone stru [...]

    N.M.
    There are two types of fiction writing plot driven, and character driven The Return takes plot focused novels to a whole new level There was nearly nothing in terms of character development They were cold, one dimensional, and entirely emotionless I also have a confession to make I didn t read the entire book I just couldn t I have never not finished a book I ve always tried to make a point to read the entirety of books so I can give fuller comments, and try to find something else that s positiv [...]

    Opening this read The Return , Geoffry Allen is seeking answers for the historical puzzle of the Ark of Covenant between humankind and the royal bloodline coming from the Holy Grail Through his research, discovers Templars are dated 1118 and sees a connection to other bloodlines However, the Orders realizes that Geoff has possession of confidential information Yet for me, the opening of the novel is quite a bore for me I am also waiting for the thriller aspect of the novel, since I like these ty [...]

    When the author of The Return contacted me for a review of his novel I was intrigued This is, quite frankly, not usually the type of novel I d read, and though some other reviewers have compared this to The Da Vinci Code, having never read that myself I cannot make that comparison All I can do is give my opinion on this book in and of itself To start, you were thrown immediately into the action, without very much of a build up, Geoff finds the book that sets off the whole story on the first page [...]

    Rabid Readers Reviews
    The author, Carter Vance, gave me a copy of this novel in exchange for my review.The premise is a good one While there are definite similarities to the premise of The Da Vinci Code, The Return is unique The novel starts with Geoff finding an introduction manual to the Knights Templar while visiting a friend s castle in Provence Geoff is stretching out his back and finds a hidden room The Return is a swift read with extremely fast moving action There are readers that will love this novel for its [...]

    Claire
    OkayThe Return is a modern fantasy novel in the vein of Dan Brown It starts with the discovery of a modern Templar manual, takes in a healthy dose of Vatican conspiracy, worldwide evil and ends up with the second coming.Okay the problems I had with this book were numerous, extremely so For starters, the text is bland and the characters so We are told that Geoff is a financier and how he stumbles upon this Templar text, but not his back story He takes this text from a hidden library in his frien [...]

    The plot line in The Return was a very interesting concept, one that I hadn t expected Especially hearing that it involved the Knights of the Templar I think in most of the books I ve read they tend to be portrayed as the bad guys so it was interesting to have that flipped I enjoyed the basic plot behind the book but the book itself could use some work.The writing seemed a little awkward at times, with the wording and it could use a little editing to fix some simple mistakes.The book jumps aroun [...]

    Twin Opinions
    I was super excited to read this book I love these types of stories and they really get me involved This one had so much potential It is good but not great It was short and seemed a little too rushed to really get me involved in the plot A lot of really great historical facts thrown in that intrigues me but at times I was a little overwhelmed by the amount of information packed into so few pages The characters have a great base but they are kind of glossed over so that you get all of the informa [...]

    Chrissy (The Every Free Chance Reader)
    Did I enjoy this book The topic is interesting enough Knights Templar, the Holy Grail, some folks who get married in front of the Ark of the Covenant The writing, though, just isn t up to par The Return reads like a school history paper it s got all the details, but it s missing that emotional draw that gets and keeps readers reading.Would I recommend it If you re a fan of reading long, dry police reports I d give it a go, but there are several far superior grail books.As reviewed by Melissa at [...]

    Full review at Katherine s Corner wp p4Dssh kKI thought the plot of this book was interesting and though that the mix of world history and fiction was good However, this book got 2 stars from me for two reasons.Firstly, it annoyed me that the characters particularly Peter and Sarah were so understanding and accepting of their position from the moment they found out This made them seem largely unrealistic to me Secondly, the story moves so fast that I found it impossible to get to know the charac [...]

    I won a copy from Librarything and here is my review.I had a really hard time getting into this book It felt rushed to me, and I kept thinking, that although it was being compared to The Davinci Code, that s not what I was thinking while reading The Return I won t be continuing with the follow up unfortunately.

    Samantha (Book Lover's Cozy Cafe)
    I had tried three times to read this book, I just couldn t get into it, I would lose my focus quickly Now I am not saying that it is a bad book, it is not just something I could get into Other s may like or love this book, but again it just wasn t for me If a book doesn t hold my attention after multiple attempts are reading it, I generally will just set it down, and move on.
