Rated this ‘pick‘ because it was a real page-turner so from that point of view a success. The author also has a great imagination and I didn‘t guess what the ‘sacrament‘ was. It was also total hogwash! Thinly veiled pop at Vatican. At beginning I could feel author writing. Not sure I ever warmed to chapters never more than 4 pages, sometimes less than 1. Don‘t think I‘ll read the sequel but I don‘t regret reading this, just wouldn‘t re-read it.
