The international bestseller and award-winning thriller that takes its reader on a richly imaginative journey to the depths of Mont-Saint-Michel.Rising out of the sea on a rocky isle off the coast of France, the church and abbey of Mont-Saint-Michel have withstood the harsh northern weather—and withheld its darkest medieval mysteries—for one thousand years. Until now.Now a young, brilliant archeologist, Johanna, has begun to uncover and explore secrets that have long lain buried at the sacred site. In ancient ritual, in foreboding visions, in an expedition at once metaphysical and archeological, Johanna ardently researches the past only to discover that its bizarre, murderous history has begun to be repeated in the present. Reality becomes an elusive, dangerous place, and it leaves Joanna with no one she can fully trust.

OMG - every character in this book is hysterical and unbelievably wordy in their hysteria. The main characher had a bad dream when she was a child, and is still in therapy over it 30 years later.

I haven't finished it (500 pages???? great scott!) I'm skimming through the endless histrionics, hoping to find the meat of the story. The only character I like is the main character's girlfriend, who celebrates madly when the main character apparently dumps the married man she's kanoodling with. Oops! Celebrated too soon!

I"m pretty sure there's a story here. If I find it, I'll let you know.

THE ANGEL'S PROMISE is a well researched book with a compelling story. I noticed two Biblical mistakes, one on page 111 in the Kindle edition, where it says that "Yahweh promised never to curse or destroy the world again." That is not accurate. God only promised never to destroy the earth by water again. The sign of the covenant was that God sent the RAINBOW as a sign to men and animals. This is not mentioned. The second most glaring Biblical error is on page 115 in the Kindle version, where the monk Roman says, that God said to Abraham, "Lift your eyes to the heavens and count the stars if you can, and he made he made him a promise 'your children will be like that'. Sarah had a child, Jacob....." Sarah did NOT have a child named Jacob. Sarah had a child named ISAAC. Isaac had two sons named Jacob and Esau. So, Sarah had a GRANDCHILD named Jacob.

Other than those two errors (which are so easily researched and corrected and SHOULD have been corrected before publication) the story is clearly written by medieval scholars of some note. Their knowledge of the history of Mont St. Michel is extensive and their knowledge of the Catholic church and monastery life is extensive. They know the proper terminology and they know Latin well.

What a shame that two errors (which surely, their editor would have caught or which could have been corrected easily and quickly) should put any cloud on their accomplishment. I found that the change from third person to first person was a little jarring but I understand that this was done to distinguish between when the action is taking place. I can't help but think this transaction could have been handled more seamlessly.

In all, I enjoyed the book for the information regarding this period in history and would recommend it with the one caveat regarding the two biblical references. It is a little slow to plow through but if you are a history buff as I am, you can enjoy the information on the early church. You need a long, rainy weekend for this book, and no interruptions so you can keep up with where you are in the story.

This is a hard read. I finally went to a web-site and copied a glossary of Cathedral terminology. The book moves between an 11th Century monastery which is the scene for love,torture,murder; and a modern day archeologist who is on a quest to discover what happened. There is a love story, intrigue,ghosts,keepers of secrets... what more could you want! A very tough read, but worth the effort.

The story in this novel is very interesting, but the writer's use of language and style is uneven and at times distracting. The Kindle version of this book is extremely poor. The font cannot be controlled. It reads like a bad photocopy. A good number of pages are almost illegible. Not what one would expect for the price of book (i.e., the Kindle copy is not a good buy!).

I liked the Angel's promise. I specifically looked for the book that was recommended to me. I will be going to the Mont Saint Michel, and the historical background seems to be well researched and will make my visit of that site more interesting. Easy read, nice mix of history, romance, mystery. My wife took it as soon as I finished, and she is totally immersed in it.

It is a little difficult to read at the beginning but it gets better further on. Too many adjectives, making it hard to read.

Very interesting. Takes a little while to get into the story but well worth the effort.
I purchased this book in French on a visit to Mont St. Michel. I didn't read it until after I got home. I found it somewhat difficult to read, especially when the author switched time periods, but thought that was due to my level of French comprehension, so I found that I had to go back and reread certain parts to be able to follow the story. I don't really think that would be a problem in English. What I liked so much about this book was that I had seen and could visualize many of the places where the action took place since I had visited there and walked around the ramparts after dark, plus, it was just a good story. I would recommend it.
