I read about eye of the god on Margaret's blog Creative Madness and since it sounded like something I would enjoy I put it on my wish list. Well, I bought the book a couple of weeks ago and I'm so glad I did. Eye of the god is about some people who want to steal the Hope Diamond. I didn't really know much about the Hope Diamond before I read this book but now I know more and I'm interested in finding out even more. I enjoyed how the author (Ariel Allison) weaved the history of the diamond into the present day story. So even though you go "back in time" the story still flowed really well. This is a book with quite a few twists and turns, definitely a page turner. I have to say this has to be one of the best books I've read this year. It really has everything in it: a little romance, intrigue, history, and great characters. I loved this book and hope she plans on writing more books. I highly recommend this book.
