Parchment Maze/ Ludmila Filipove/ 439 pages
The Parchment Maze written by Bulgarian author Ludmila Filipova is written in the style of Dan Brown, but set in Eastern Europe. Vera Kandilova is trying to separate herself from her archaeologist father by writing a revolutionary thesis that ties a lost Bulgarian civilization to ancient Egypt and Rome based on the Orpheus Cult. In her search for material to back up her thesis she is directed to the Parchment Maze. Much to Vera's surprise, she finds multiple clues that imply her thesis is more real than even she imagined. Vera's search includes plenty of action and adventure along the way. If the reader likes Dan Brown and Steve Berry, they will enjoy this novel.
