The Proof by Cheryl Colwell

The Synopsis:

51i2L7ewD7L._SL250_“Shrouded in mystery, a precious relic known as Il Testamento, or The Proof, circulated among the early Christians for centuries. Before their deaths, its guardians hid it from their adversaries, leaving only a crude map of its location.

For centuries, it lay in darkness. Until now. Reports of its existence have resurfaced, inciting an ancient rivalry between a ruthless group that seeks to destroy it, and a secret association that lusts for its power.

Summoned to Siena by a grandfather he has never met, Gabriel Dolcini is thrust into a dark maze of danger. And into his divine destiny.”

I received this book from the author for the purpose of this review. All comments and opinions are entirely my own.


The Proof is an unpredictable twisting and turning chain of events that will have lovers of National Treasure and Tricia Goyer’s The Spanish Civil War series hooked!

This book bounces between a modern day story filled with mystery and action, and the story that began 800 years earlier, which also contains its fair share of mystery. The characters are incredible and as the readers, we struggle with not knowing who to trust just as much as the main character, Gabriel, does.

The action can get graphic and there are a few murders present in the story-line, however the language is clean and there is no sexual content. Also the physical copy of this book that I received does have some formatting issues, failures to indent, and some dialogue that was missing quotations, making it somewhat confusing to read in places. However this does not affect my opinion of the story so I still gladly give it 5 out of 5 stars.
