Summary

The book begins when a mysterious letter is delivered to the Prince of Wales 32 years after it was posted. Hinting of a secret royal marriage, the letter raises the specter of an unknown heir to the British throne and sets in motion a desperate race for the truth. The search sets David Lord, an American accountant, against the unlimited resources of the Royal Protection Service (the SO14) who do whatever it takes to protect the King of England.

Critical to settling the issues spawned by the letter is locating the coronation stone, one of the holiest artifacts of the Hebrew nation and a companion to the Ark of the Covenant, of ‘Raiders of the Lost Ark’ fame. The coronation stone legend originates in ancient Israel and travels, over time, to Ireland, Scotland and London. The revered stone is currently on display in Edinburgh castle.

Or is it?

Mounting evidence indicates that the genuine coronation stone disappeared before it ever reached Westminster Abbey. The sacred stone Mr. Lord uncovers could prove the downfall of the House of Windsor or validate their divine right to rule through the ancient Throne of David.

  

My Review

The Throne of David was a romantic suspense about a quest to find an heir and a religious stone that would confirm a proper heir, or at least one supported by God. It was interesting to see how biblical history came to play in the story as well as the people and places the characters saw as they traveled to find the stone. There were individuals who did everything in their power to not have the stone or the heir come to light, not for the good of their country, but for their own greed.

I really liked both David and Camryn. They were great characters to follow throughout this story. I liked that David was a take charge kind of guy. He was intelligent, loyal, and brave. Camryn was fierce, compassionate, and a real sweetheart. There were several other characters that were interesting who were an enjoyable part of the story as well.

The plot was crazy in parts. The romance was sweet, but played second ring to the history and suspense so that it didn't overtake the story. There was some info dumping here and there, but also some interesting  historical information. Some parts of the story were a little quirky and unbelievable, but if you can take it as it is then the plot works. There is also a nice set up for a second story, which I'd be curious about. I'm not sure what the plot would be, but I'm sure there will be more danger and deception.

Overall, The Throne of David was an intriguing and enjoyable read. I'd recommend it to those who enjoy religious suspense or action-adventure with a biblical history aspect.

Content: Some violence, but would consider this clean.
