Good Weds everyone , hope you are all staying warm and snuggly with a good book and a great cup of coffee. Today we are reviewing THE STORY OF ORION  book one Weapons by Gerald J, kubicki and Kristopher Kubicki

                                       BOOK BLURB
Was Orion a real person? Did he have weapons that he left on earth?
Colton Banyon and his partner Loni Chen receive an invitation to a ceremony for a dedication to his famous ancestor Jakub Banyon. When they arrive in Warsaw, Poland, they were promptly attacked and kidnapped. They soon escape and go after the kidnappers only to discover that they were sent by the head of a very secret organization called the Society of Orion. He needs their help.
The leader explains that the Society of Orion is charged with the protection of the Orion weapons, but some have all gone missing. The leader, Albin Wilk, wants Banyon to find the missing fifteen weapons in three days because some of them had been activated. He tells Banyon that the crisis is caused by his ancestor, Jakub Banyon, because he kept a diary that explained the powers and how to work each weapon. The diary had recently been discovered and published in a newspaper.
Soon, Banyon discovers that the history of the Wilk family and the Banyon family have been tied together for hundreds of years. Nothing is what it seems. He decides to find the weapons and clear his ancestor’s name.
While Loni puts together a chart of the weapons and where to locate them, Banyon begins to call in the troops. They include the Patel clan and people from Dewey & Beatem. Soon they have a plan and begin the recovery of the weapons. But nothing goes as planned and Banyon must make constant iterations to stay ahead of the many people after the weapons.

                                    MY REVIEW
   This was the first book I have read from this author and I will say I really loved it. What would happen if Orion was a real person. We meet Colton Banyon and Loni Chen who get invited to a ceremony by his father Jakub Banyon , where they are kidnapped by the leader of a secret organization to help them find some missing artifacts and they only have three days to find fifteen artifacts. Which sends them on a mission and finding the artifacts and stay ahead of the people after them and the weapons .
  As you all know I am a avid reader of mysteries and thrillers. I love to figure out who did it and the reasons behind why they did it . This book is no exceptions. I was turning the pages of this book well into the night . I can't believe that I haven't heard of this author before now . I mean this is the first book I have read from him and now going to go and check out all his other books . This book has it all ,mystery intrigue and oh yeah throw in Greek mythology and you have one mighty fine book.
 The characters in the book are well written and so life like . They are characters from his other books but I had not trouble understanding the main characteristics and mind set. Seeing as this is a new series and book one . He also incorporates the secret society of the free masons and the secret of Orion. You feel like you are in the middle of a great spy novel, almost like you are in a Dan Brown novel when you are figuring out what will happen next.
   You will take a twisted rollercoaster ride, right into the middle of a secret society and delve deep into the world of Greek mythology. This is a dark book and once you enter you won't want to leave until you are done reading the very last page . There are twists and turns that you won't see coming . So if you want a great read that is a fast read also. If you love secret societies and mystery and intrigue. This is the book for you . So please check it out.
