    The author was apparently rendered mentally incontinent shortly after beginning this travesty of English. It's almost as if he had "know choice" but to give a "faux-pas salute" to the destruction of language itself as he "tendered to" blind typing. Perhaps I'm just not "fully imbibed to believe" in the power of random words. The general substance of the book is well presented in the first sentence of chapter twenty-two: "Friday night in Las Vegas is a night of anarchy in most cities, a place wit The author was apparently rendered mentally incontinent shortly after beginning this travesty of English.

Perhaps I'm just not "fully imbibed to believe" in the power of random words. The general substance of the book is well presented in the first sentence of chapter twenty-two: "Friday night in Las Vegas is a night of anarchy in most cities, a place with no discipline and no sense of order." The stories can be amusing if you're able to get past the "indigent plants."

    Pandora’s Ark...not a surprise I am a fan of the Vatican Knights and have thoroughly enjoyed the character development over the first few novels. The storyline as it regards nanotechnology and the geopolitical turmoil surrounding it was excellent. The ending however was anti-climactic and felt truncated. Still, I will look forward to reading about Kimball and the Knights in the next read.

    I thought this story was just okay, but full of editorial/writing mistakes. Just a few to highlight: "It is not our attention to cause you harm". H'mmm, maybe the author meant "it is not our INTENTION to cause you harm". Other examples include using "your" instead of "you're". Not just a few writing mistakes, but a lot. Certainly too many mistakes to justify giving this book a 5-star review. Did no one bother going over this book?

Did no one bother going over this book? How many people have read it and not caught some of these mistakes (I only highlighted a few)? These mistakes JUMPED out at me and forced me to stop and re-read the lines until I figured out what he actually meant. Action packed? No, not really. It might be a Vatican Knights books, but the Knights themselves do not have much of a role until the very end. And action? Yes some, but not action packed. You want action packed? Reference: by Matt Reilly. I am giving this story 3-stars and I feel that is being generous. Reading it was like watching one of those low budget sci-fi TV movies (with the real cheesy special effects). I picked up this $2.99 book for only $0.99. For under a buck I gave it a shot, but for $3 I would want a better quality production/book.

    Pandora's Ark takes us to a lab in a remote mountain in Iran. Here nanoparticles have been perfected. Those scientist behind these "microbots" have programed them to be the ultimate destroyer. They have been developed to destroy everything they come into contact with. This knowledge that has been developed came from a very unlikely source... the Ark of the Covenant. In the hands of terrorists, these nanoparticles are going to be used against the Vatican. The Vatican Knights may be up against thei Pandora's Ark takes us to a lab in a remote mountain in Iran.

    I like this series. I do wish that the Ark had played more than a backdrop/plot element part. I realize these books are not relic hunt books, but sometimes I feel like there are missed opportunities to have some real fun. Either way, Jones delves into Vatican politics and it is interesting. He sometimes reminds me of the great Malachi Martin.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. Was not impressed. The book was meant to be about the Vatican Knights it took far to long to bring them into the storyline. The ark itself was not used to good affect and I found passages of the story to long winded that you were bored. I thought the author spent to long on parts of the story that you had already lost interest in. Won't be rushing to buy the next one.

    The Vatican is attacked by terrorist using "The Ark of The Covenant" as a Trojan Horse filled deadly nano-particles. It's up to Kimball and the Vatican Knights to save the day. Fourth in the Vatican Knights series. Very good.

    Thought it was as good as his others in this series. Was disappointed to find that his current one is available only on Kindle.

    I enjoyed the book. It was a great story would have liked to have had more to the ending than a rush through. The book did well in detail until the end it was rushed through
