Thomas Lourds – Wikipedia
The first half of the book is a single, continuous, non-stop action sequence. I like the action and history in it, but I felt that the storyline was a little far fetched and I am becoming not too fond of the main character. That leads to some more encrypted messages which too are never elaborated upon. Fast-paced, gripping, mysterious, an explosive ending and again with a good knowledge of facts, this has left me wanting to start book 3 right now.
Published August 31st by Forge Books first published January 1st Also a big than I loved this book. When he all of a sudden showed that he had supernatural abilities is when I could no longer take the story seriously.
Where Indy would whip the gun from vharles bad guy’s hand, Thomas just kind of sits there waiting to be shot — or saved by a much ljcifer impressive woman. Aug 02, Caroline rated it did not like it. Of course, the rbokaw that the two main female characters do end up sleeping with him does nothing to alleviate his pompousness or improve the situation on the whole. The Lucifer Code is not a religious mystery but rather a suspense as to whether Lourds can crack the code in time to save the world, a la Its far fetched and i suppose the author meant it to be that way but by the end of the first 60 pages, i was hoping the hero’s would get killed i didnt like any of them The plot was boarding on ludicrous, the script cheesy This guy should give up writing!
May 23, Jo Richardson rated it it was amazing Shelves: HTML is allowed in the comment box above. Are there times when the situations faced by the characters requires some eye-rolling on the part of the reader? It has action and adventure, near-death experiences, a touch of the otherworldly, hot women, fast cars, and state-of-the-art weaponry. For me, I would put Charles Brokaw in that latter category. I won’t say anything regarding the story but this is not your simple connect-the-dots mystery that can be linear and predictable.
The adventure starts off quickly and proceeds at a jaunty pace. When I got through broakw first quarter of “Lucifer’s Code”, I started considering whether I should give this pulp archaeo-historical-thriller four or three stars. The professor is given an ancient manuscript that holds the location of the much sought scroll. Each of these accomplishments goes hand-in-hand with different sides of Thomas’s personality.
You can use the following tags: The Vice President of the United States is another story entirely. There are some fun moments, a great sidekick in gun-smuggling gun for hire Cleena and a lot of fun chases through catacombs and underground chambers.
The Lucifer Code (Thomas Lourds, book 2) by Charles Brokaw
The end of the book, I can only describe as being bad. And one of those people has ties to the US government, ties that lead directly to the White House.
The book never elaborates on the cryptic messages that are a key to unlock the code that is talked about in the book. Be the first and leave a response!
In my mind the only reason this book has been written! Which happens relatively quickly. Want to Read Currently Reading Read. Oh please spare me Poorly developed and ridiculous premise, unresolved storylines and clumsy gratuitous sex.

I liked most of the characters, and stories featuring the ultimate battle of good versus evil always excite me.
That said, it is the intricate detail in which Brokaw lays o Brokaw’s second coxe brings our main fharles back on the scene, newly made famous for his work on the rediscovery of Atlantis and a mainstream ’50 Shades-like’ novel, with a new discovery in the heart of Turkey. The book flags at the end, though, to the point where they skip over how much of what the document that they finally found leads to, although I guess the author probably figured no one would want to read more searching, so I’ll forgive that.
I like that he is really smart but he is so full of himself and sleeps with every woman he comes in contact with, it becomes a little annoying at times. Return to Book Page. I very much enjoyed the story. Thomas Lourds ventures to Istanbul University in Turkey to examine artifacts never before seen by Western scholars.
He needs help to stay alive—and he has it in the form of a beautiful but deadly Irish Republican Army operative, and in his old flame, Olympia Adnan. I, it is easy for books like this to get lost in the tidal wave of cash-ins that happen when one book makes it big.
REVIEW – The Lucifer Code by Charles Brokaw
Mar 07, Jennifer rated it liked chares Shelves: I had just read the 7TH Scroll by Wilbur Smith, which i quite enjoyed and was hoping this might be in the same mould but Wilbur Smith is a far more superior writer This is a sort of Indiana Jones type of tale. I thoroughly enjoyed the book and its intricacies, as well as some of the new characters introduced and developed. Design by Booyah Creative Login.
Critical reception for the Thomas Lourds series has been mixed, with Publishers Weekly saying that The Atlantis Code “will get few readers’ pulses racing, especially since Brokaw relies more on shoot-outs and narrow escapes than plausible archeological details to carry his story along.
