Most Helpful

A brilliant story, wonderfully read.

What did you like most about Vessel?

The plot - it's both intricate and fast-paced, with a clever back-story that feeds the main narrative at just the right point.

What other book might you compare Vessel to, and why?

If I had to, I'd compare it to Dan Brown's novels, only much, much more enjoyable. It's well-written, for a start.

Have you listened to any of Craig Beck’s other performances? How does this one compare?

No but I might do now.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Well, yes, but I don't like spoilers. The original approach to Jerusalem. And the ending.

Any additional comments?

I'd thoroughly recommend this book, genuinely exciting, engaging characters, a fast-paced and witty narrative style, great twists, ably delivered in Audible.

Cracking action adventure with science and myth

As a fan and long time reader of Templar fact and myth, immediately from seeing the cover I knew I'd enjoy this book. I was not disappointed. Fast paced but clever it ticked all the boxes for novels of this type. The story might have been told before in different ways but this was refreshing with a nice slant on combining present day and past. The narration was very good too with good production and clear speaking throughout.
