This book was well-written, but not my type of book. ( )

As the description said, this is not a book but a riddle and as a riddle it's a five star one!
AENIGMA is a fresh air in the fantasy market that has been crowded with vampires, dystopian worlds, medieval knights and sorceress. This book combines ancient history, mythology, riddles and an UNIQUE ending.

In the first part, THE PROFECY, you see the actions that lead to the conflict between Rome and the kingdom of Pontus, with the Greeks trapped in the middle. A sort of ‘West' and 'East' confrontation that has been a continuous fact in our World History. The real characters are fascinating, Mithridates VI, known as the king of poisons (due to his obsession to become immune to venoms) and Sulla, the Roman commander that won every single battle despite the fact that his army was less than a third of his enemy's.

But, this is not a historical novel; the author only uses this conflict to draw the landscape of the story. In the second part, THE MISSION, the seven chosen ones will be involved in many adventures to find the Treasure that the Pythia revealed in her prophecy. This led them to find a ancient riddle wrote when the Word was first pronounced. The Reader that solves it would become a character in the next book.

This novel has it all: action, adventure, romance and surprises. It has potential to become an epic movie. ( )

Following a prophecy revealed at the Oracle of Delphi, seven chosen ones (an Amazon, a priest, a pirate, an Olympic athlete, a stone princess, the bearer of the Word, and a mystery character) set off on a voyage that takes them from Delphi to Alexandria, to other Greek Islands, and eventually to Rome. Along the way, they encounter various mythological creatures.
In the background, the region is in turmoil. Mithridates VI of Anatolia (the poison king) attempts to push back Roman control of Greece, thereby expanding his own territory. He faces a powerful opponent in Lucius Cornelius Sulla, the Red Commander, who sacked Athens in 86 B.C., after a siege that had driven Athenians to despair, forced to eat rats to survive. The purpose of the voyage puts the chosen ones on the radar of both of these real warriors, and places their lives in danger. The magical element of Aenigma is captivating, but I also felt that there was a strong reminder of the foundations the Greeks and Romans laid that are very much part of our society today.
The difference about this book is the ending. There are five cryptic clues revealed throughout the journey that will help to solve the enigma, and the first reader who solves it successfully will be come a character in the next book. If you have ever dreamed of being an Amazon warrior, this is the chance. There is another puzzle in the book, the identity of the Seventh, any more would be a spoiler. ( )
