When a quirky archaeologist finds ancient Viking parchments containing runes and riddles, his mundane life is changed for good. As he embarks on a dangerous quest to discover their origin, he finds himself plunged into the heart of an ancient religious conspiracy, fighting for his life. From Egyptian tombs and antiquarian bookshops in modern day Egypt to the year 1013—when Viking warriors raided a tomb and unknowingly stole the greatest secret of the Old Testament—he is led on a mystifying trail of clues through past and present alike. With powerful forces fighting against him, will he be able to succeed in unveiling a religious cover-up when the consequences of failing are fatal?

Start by marking The Guardians of the Covenant: An Epic . However, as, again, people keep comparing Tom Egeland to Dan Brown, although this book came in after Brown's success, Egeland's writing antedates Brown's.

From Nordic countries to Egypt to America to the Caribbean and back again...this (on occasion - a little confusing) book/story introduces one Mr. Bjorn Belto, associate professor of archaeology of University of Oslo, Norway, who says he is albino, but has an odd & whimsical wit and sense of humor about him throughout the book. Bjorn Belto is an interesting character who gets too curious for his own good when he gets into trouble following 'signs' of the Egyptian ankh, Rune tiwaz & Christian cross, trying to solve a historical puzzle of crisscrossing religions of different races throughout the centuries to modern day.

There's a lot of names of people and places in the book to keep track of...ancient and otherwise. The story Bjorn tells is one of not just age old religious mysteries with parchments & scrolls, but of murder too...to get to the 'prize'. What will happen to archaeologist Bjorn Balto if he gets too close or in the way of the prize? And who is 'the sheik' that causes Bjorn so much trouble?
Good book.

[description from Wikipedia] "A scavenger hunt is a game in which the organizers prepare a list defining specific items, using which the participants -- individuals or teams -- seek to gather all items on the list -- usually without purchasing them -- or perform tasks or take photographs of the items, as specified.[1] The goal is usually to be the first to complete the list, although in a variation on the game players can also be challenged to complete the tasks on the list in the most creative manner."

If you have read & loved The DaVinci Code-Dan Brown, you will love this book even more! I loved the story, totally shocked to find out who really was the shiek after Bjorn. The character of Bjorn is one of the best i have read, written in the 1st person. I would highly recommend this book, beautifully written!!

Wow I was pleasantly surprised as to the fun this read was, he has a totally different style of writing, in the first person. I love it. He the charter is not a super hero, just a normal guy. It is a witty book, and most interesting read. I am now reading his second book and look forward to more from this guy.

I would have rated zero starts, if it was possible. The first 16 pages from this edition are half printed!
