Last Prophecy of Rome by Iain King
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
OMG I can not begin to tell you how fantastic The Last Prophecy Of Rome is. This is actually my first book that I have read by Iain King and definitely won't be my last. This is the pre sequel to Secrets of the Last Nazi, so in my opinion it doesn't matter which way round you read Iain's books. having not read Iain's first publication of the Myles Munro action thriller series. First of all I have to say what a brilliant vibrant cover this book has it really suits the story.
This book kept me highly entertained for two evenings it is so action packed you will not believe it. Myles Munro is on holiday in rome with girlfriend and journalist Helen Bridle. He’s convinced a bomb is about to be detonated at the American Embassy. Then the action starts with a delivery van hurtling through Wall Street in New york when BOOM, showering the sky with a chilling message that America is about to be brought down like the Roman Empire. And Juma an African warlord who is set free by the Arab Spring, plans to make it happen. A US Senator is then taken hostage, Myles finds himself caught in a race against time to stop Juma. Sounds a lot going on but for me this is what made the story. The chapters are titled with the citie and found this very easy to follow with it jumping back and forth to the different cities. Iain's writing skills are magnificent. I actually felt like I was right there with Myles on his adventure.
This book starts off with a bang and had me totally gripped. Myles goes through one hell of a rollercoaster journey where I found myself on the edge of the seat willing him along. The story just got better and better. I loved the hint of romance that was added to the story what a lovely couple Helen and Myles are. And without giving anything away I have to say what an ending I was totally blown away and found myself on the edge of my seat hyperventilating. This book is most definitely going to stay with me for a very long time and would love to see it has a movie! I can not wait to read more of Myles action packed adventures.
If you're looking for a gripping, action packed, page turner with lots of twists and turns this is the book for you. It will have you guessing until the very end which I highly recommend giving it a well deserved 5 stars.
