Four Pieces for Power – A book review!

Four Pieces For PowerFour Pieces For Power by Marc Estes
My rating: 4 of 5 stars


A man’s very settled life suddenly turns upside down by an unexpected visitor who reveals a secret that changes everything. Andrew Correo’s grandfather, who he’d thought to be dead for many years, had faked his death and disappeared to head a powerful organization known as Vindicatori. Now, he has passed away and Andrew has the opportunity to take over the command of this world dominating force and carry on his grandfather’s work.

But, there is a challenge, set in place by Grandfather Correo that must first be won . Andrew and his rival, Robert, must compete in a high stakes deadly game to find four pieces of a puzzle.

The first man to find all four pieces wins the leadership of Vindicatori. This quest leads them from the pyramids of Mexico to Rome, where they discover clues to help them find each piece of the puzzle. But, one of the men doesn’t play fair. Suspense builds throughout the story with a climatic ending.

Marc Estes did a great job of weaving the characters of this story together in a compelling way. I was hooked from the first chapter. This tale is very much along the lines of an Indiana Jones adventure or a Dan Brown novel. If you like action/adventure stories with intrigue and espionage, you will love this debut novel!

Jan SikesHello, I am Jan Sikes. I started writing when I was a young girl, around the age of eight. My first writing was a gospel song. I had an uncle whom I loved dearly, but he was an alcoholic and his drinking caused such family discord that at times, resulted in him being banished from their home. So, I wrote a song about Uncle Luke finding Jesus. That is my first memory of feeling the passion deep down to my toes for writing.

Then as I continued to grow up, I became an avid reader of books. We had no TV in our home so reading was my entertainment. Many times, I’d be in the middle of a good book when Mom called for lights out, so I would hide under the covers with a flashlight and continue reading.
