READ THE REVIEWS:
The Fourth Kingdom kept me turning the pages and I was thoroughly wrapped up in the story – so much so that I had to go online to do my own research – some of the circumstances in the book aren’t discussed much in history books so I thought surely the authors must be embellishing – unfortunately, they weren’t.
"Another awesome book! I started this book and couldn’t put it down. If you enjoy medical thrillers that involve cloning, a Christian scientist, a secular scientist, with a lot of intrigue, you will love this book! You won’t believe how far reaching this novel is as you turn each page in this must read book." Sally Shupe, book blogger.
