The story revolves around the search for the True Cross that Matillde Christ was crucified on. Once in the mode of interpreting Dante as a roadmap to solving seven deadly puzzles, I found the book to become a bit boring.

I thought very much about rating it a three but it does not merit that rating as there is so much that is just a wreck about this book.

This book is along the lines of the DaVinci Code. Other reviewers have praised this book for the fact that it’s a romantic quest for paradise with emotional sophistication my words rather than an investigation of baddies. The ending had a nice twist that was followed by ulfimo bit of a cliche, but that was fine.

El Ultimo Caton : Matilde Asensi :

The only questions remaining are why the secret cult is gathering the Cross remnants and what motivates Captain Kaspar Glauser-Royst. The Vatican high command clearly riven by some factionalism is scared by the rapid progress the nun makes and caon 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.

Recomendable y todo eso. Over the years, fragments of the Cross have passed out of their reach, to churches all over Europe. Characters don’t so much speak as perorate.

This book is a delightful historical fantasy. To complicate things more, the dead man was carrying along bits of the True Cross – the one Jesus died upon – and bears scarification that suggests a long-lost religious order may not be lost after all. If perchance you are looking for an excellent plus religious thriller I would highly reccomend The Matulde of Q by Jonathan Rabb!!


But I will still recommend this piece to everyone who has an appetite for biblical mysteries, or plain mystery for that matter.

There are elements of fantasy that are a complete let-down. If they can survive the Staurofilakes’ tests, they will earn entrance into the Earthly Paradise–and hopefully discover the whereabouts of the missing True Cross for the Vatican. The markings, symbolizing the Seven Deadly Sins, are part of an elaborate initiation ritual for the Staurofilakes, the clandestine brotherhood hiding the True Cross for centuries, headed by a secretive figure called Cato.

The story is good, the writing is quite fair, the translation and proofreading are almost flawless. Una lectura muy recomendada.

The Last Cato (Catón, #1) by Matilde Asensi

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.

Either the translation is somewhat lacking or the author’s got a tin-ear for asnesi. The Last Cato also happens to be an intelligent critique of the Roman Curia as well as a lively This book is a delightful historical fantasy. Asenis 10, Beth Cato rated it really liked it Shelves: Sep 08, Lowed rated it liked it. This is an intelligent, well-researched book and it was a great deal of fun.

Together, they will face challenges that will put their faith—and their very lives—to the ultimate test. And it’s hard for me to say this, because Asensi’s writing has more quality than Brown’s the construction of phrases, the richness of vocabularybut the truth is I never felt engrossed by the book – and that made its reading lukewarm and emotionless, ruining all the rest for me. Want to Read saving….

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.

However, the book ultomo too much on slapstick, silly humor and cheezy romance to gel things together. Salina uncovers the connection between the brotherhood and Dante’s Divine Comedyand races across the globe to Christianity’s ancient capitals.
