Prince of Europe
By Elton Elliott & Doug Odell
350 pages, $19.95, 2009
The first entry in the Nanoclone Trilogy (Prince of Europe, Bishop of Rome, King of Jerusalem) sets up the intriguing premise: What if some mad scientists cloned the most radical, power-hungry leaders of history? And what does an ancient secret society and mystical artifacts have to do with mysterious pink fog in Scotland?
Although the writing is a bit dry at times (there is a lot of plot to cover here), this novel lays out some interesting ideas and attempts to weave modern day science and ancient beliefs together in a cascade of plot punches that will leave the reader with a lot to think about.
Looking forward to the rest of this fascinating series. Get it here: http://www.mvp-publishing.com/Preview-Prince-of-Europe.html
