Review: Will Shakespeare and the Ships of Solomon by Christopher Grey


Is there anyone who has not ever been attracted by the subject of the occult secrets, of the ancient mysteries that get through times until today, by the organizations that appear, or (who knows) really rule the world?

Will Shakespeare and the Ships of Solomon is based on some of these secrets, but it is not a dull book like some of the TV documentaries where the data are presented with a certain pseudo-scientific aura, but an action story full of twists and moments loaded with tension. A novel with a course of events on the edge, in which the sides are always in a race against time to resolve the situation that becomes increasingly dangerous as the pages pass. The reason or the element that triggers the conflict is the discovery of an artifact that I'm sure you've heard before in different stories told and retold in different ways over the centuries. Do not hurry, the book is not a retelling, but an original and attractive story that will keep your curiosity awake. If I did not make fully clear for you and to better outline the set within which action takes place, I could point two popular movie series that have delighted and will delight many of us: Indiana Jones and National Treasure. I think you have already formed an opinion about what I meant and you know now how we play. Time and you, the readers, will decide whether the Will Shakespeare and the Ships of Solomon is a novel that deserves to stand alongside the books of this genre that have remained famous in literature.

Anyway, it's a story of adventure in which the secret (or not) societies, ancient mysteries and famous characters are all caught in the action vortex and that cannot leave you indifferent and you will read with pleasure about the incredible happenings of the main characters of the novel.

The book’s style is engaging and very visual and that will make the reading of the novel to be an enjoyable and relaxing one. Without unnecessary descriptions and introductions, the pages will be full of tension and adrenaline.

A small warning: the references and the connections between the characters, the orders and the historical organizations would be better if you will treat them as an artistic license, as (hopefully) you do with those of the movies that I have mentioned above. Many are a fiction created only for your entertainment and you better not forget this.

In the fall of 1947, Will Shakespeare saw the world collapse around him. Shakespeare, a secret soldier for the Knights Templar, barely escapes the slaughter of his entire knighthood at the hands of a rogue militant arm of the Vatican in a small Montreal church. With orders to escort Templar business associate Dorothy Wilkinson back to her home in Bermuda, Will must locate and rescue the most important secret treasure in human history before it is devoured by a hurricane in the watery caves beneath her father's property. The spiraling quest sends Will and Dorothy into uncovering dark secrets that make up the origins of the knighthood as they confront the traps and puzzles that masterfully protect the world's most coveted treasure.

About the author:
Christopher Grey is an author of fiction focusing on conspiracy theories, secret societies and the occult. His special brand of storytelling dives into conspiracies and the occult from the point of view of the secret societies, attempting to dispel popular mistruths and paranoia prevalent in the mainstream. 

Grey's fascination with the secret world began when he was sixteen after a chance meeting with a conspiracy theorist in a coffee shop sometime in the 1990s. The conversation with this man led Grey on a lifelong scholarly endeavor to learn about secret societies and the occult from a skeptical and secular point of view. 

Over the past 15 years, he has been involved in various fraternal societies and has sought to explore the undercurrents of human civilization–to uncover the hidden histories and the forces and patterns that have designed what society has become and to demystify the hidden forces in our society that, for so long, have been vilified and misunderstood.
