Blog Tour - Beyond the Narrows Review and Giveaway


About the book: After being the subject of an explosive assassination attempt, O'Reilly (Obie) Begay, a retired Navajo archaeologist, finds himself in the middle of the hunt for an ancient record the personal journal of a Spanish Templar leading to a legendary treasure.

When Obie tracks down the journal, he enlists fellow retirees Peter, Bill, and Jack to assist him in following its clues. Facing gunfights and car chases, the treasure hunters locate a 500-year-old Mayan codex, the next clue on their adventure. Peter's grandson, Charley, and Obie's granddaughter, Mac, come along for the quest, but they may find themselves drawn to a different kind of treasure.

Constantly one tiny step ahead of their enemies as they scour the caves, cliffs, and canyons of Southern Utah, Obie's team will have to rely on each other if they want to reach the treasure before their pursuers. But what will they do if not all in their numbers can be trusted?

My review: I LOVED this book! It's full of adventure, fun characters, mystery, treasure, and deception.

I loved the beginning. The way that appears that a murder has been committed, and the whole gang heading to the scene, only to be led in another direction was great! 

I loved the characters. Mac, Charlie, Obie, Peter, and Bill are all really great characters. I loved the way you see the plot and things happening through many different eyes. 

And the plot! I loved it. I loved the whole idea, it really reminded me of an LDS National Treasure book. Obie receives a really old journal. This journal gives clues leading to a great treasure. Obie and his friends must figure out the clues that take them through different areas of National Parks and other places in the St. George area. And, of course, they're being followed by bad guys trying to get the journal or the treasure. Sometimes they know they are and other times they don't and simply miss the bad guys.

I was kind of surprised by who the bad guy was. I had kind of guessed, but then Obie's team took the person in and I kind of figured at that point that he was safe. 

I loved reading this book and trying to keep up with the clues! This is a fun book that I didn't want to put down!

I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
