Le trivia or quizzes yet. However, it’s symptomatic that Brown has catoon of readers all over the world and Asensi is virtually unkonwn outside Spain or the Iberian Peninsula.
If they can survive the Staurofilakes’ tests, they will earn entrance matklde the Earthly Paradise–and hopefully discover the whereabouts of the missing True Cross for the Vatican. Still, it was an entertaining, enjoyable read, and would probably make good summer fare. I thoroughly enjoyed this, even though I hated The Divine Comedy, because of the adventure and give and take between the trio. But I will still recommend this piece to everyone who has an appetite for biblical mysteries, or plain mystery for that matter.
A masterful blend of Christian scholarship and thrilling adventure, The Last Cato is a novel about the race to find the secret location of the Vera Cruz, the True Cross on which Christ was crucified, and the ancient brotherhood sworn to protect it.
The Last Cato (Catón, #1) by Matilde Asensi
Salina uncovers the connection between the brotherhood and Dante’s Divine Comedyand races across the globe to Christianity’s ancient capitals. Matilde Asensi born in Alicante, Spain is a Spanish journalist and writer, who specializes mainly in historical thrillers. I loved the premise of this book and a mythical order of the Staurofilakes who protect the True cross over the centuries. The pope himself has ordered Salina, together with a big shot in the Swiss Guard and a world-renowned archaeologist to get to the bottom of the disappearances.
Over the years, fragments of the Cross have passed out of their reach, to churches all over Europe. Jan 27, Vaso rated it it was amazing. Along with a stoic Swiss Army captain and brilliant Coptic Egyptian, the three of them work through linguistic riddles and discover the key to everything is hidden in plain sight – Dante’s The Divine Comedy.

This is an intelligent, well-researched book and it was a great deal of fun. For those asens aren’t familiar with post Vatican II history, asensl references are a terrific place to start.
It ended like it should. Now, the Staurofilakes are stealing the fragments of the Cross back, using any means necessary to fulfill mahilde long-ago oath they made to protect it. I really like books that cross genres cleverly but this 2. Un poco to Aunque al principio no terminaba de cogerle el punto al final me ha gustado.

Some tenuous connection then derives to Dante’s Purgatory, and the three are forced to start decoding instructions hidden in the book to find an earthly paradise, where, they suspect, the criminals came from. A diferencia de lo que sucede con Dan Brown, Matilde Asensi se preocupa por desarrollar a sus personajes, cosa que se agradece.

The Vatican high command clearly riven by some factionalism is scared ultino the rapid progress the nun makes and takes her off the case, only to reassign her when they find that precious relics and crosses related to the prior investigation are disappearing from various churches around the world. Las pruebas que tienen que superar me han encantado, en cambio algunos ratos en los que describia la historia de las religiones me ha aburrido.
Relics of the True Cross from across the world have been disappearing, and an obscure religious order is suspected of collecting them. I gave this a three star because of a very weak translation.
Oct 19, Paul Pessolano rated it really liked it. It’s a curious thing that the author based this story on The Divine Comedy by Dante more specifically on the Purgatory12 years before Ultim Brown did the same this time with the Inferno.
