Completed on: 07/01/2016 Review Rating: 5 stars! Reviewed By Tracy A. Fischer for Readers’ Favorite In an interesting and intriguing new work by author Linda Lee Kane, The Black Madonna is a story that will keep readers turning the pages from the start straight through until the very end! Follow the story of Luci de Foix, a young woman who was orphaned at the age of nine when her parents were killed in a car accident. But the more Luci researches, the more she realizes that there might not have been an “accident” at all. A mysterious group called The Order has been keeping watch over her family line for hundreds of years, and has been waiting for the day when a secret diary will be delivered to them, unlocking a codex that The Order desperately wants. And when just such a diary is delivered to Luci when she is twenty-nine years old, she realizes that it might be the only way to learn her true family history and the key to her own future. Will Luci be able to figure out the codex in time to save herself and avenge her family? You’ll need to read this excellent book to find out! I so enjoyed The Black Madonna. Author Linda Lee Kane has provided her readers with an exciting and adventurous read, as well as a complex and fascinating main character in Luci, that will leave them wanting more. This story line has something of The Da Vinci Code feel to it, but in the very best of ways! Any reader that loves mysteries, adventures, thrillers, or books with a great deal of history thrown in should definitely read The Black Madonna. I highly recommend this book, and I look forward to reading more from author Linda Lee Kane as soon as I possibly can!
