This novel was interesting and perplexing, thought inducing and chill seeking. The different areas that Neville worked into the story were fantastic. History and mythology rule the day while adventure had me on the edge of my seat. This novel is fantastically and captivatingly written and plotted.
The flipping back and forward from the past to the present allows readers to get to know a myriad of characters who are all important to the tale. The contrast between present day characters and those in the past allowed each to shine to their fullest. This novel may be long, but it was unendingly fascinating. I read it in a single day, unable to put it down. It definitely sets the bar for all novels in the genre.
Please note that I received a complimentary copy of this work in exchange for an honest review. The Eight by Katherine Neville starts in France in Valentine and Mireielle are novices are Montglane Abbey. Due to a new act that has been recently passed, the government is seizing possessions of the churches.
This particular abbey hides a very special chess set. It was once owned by Charlemagne who gave it to Garin de Montglane. It is supposed to possess special properties and hides a formula. Now it is being unearthed and sent out with the nuns. Valentine and Mireielle are given two pieces and special instructions. They will act as a gathering point. If a nun has to flee, the girls will receive their pieces and keep them safe.
The girls are only sixteen and have been raised in the convent since they were orphaned.
Are they up to the task? When she refuses to do something underhanded and illegal at the request of her boss, they decide to send her to Algiers for a year. Several months later just before she is to leave for Algiers Lily Rad takes Cat to a chess match. Lily is obsessed with chess and the daughter of a dear friend, Harry Rad.
He also warns her that she is in danger. Catherine is to embark on a journey to find the pieces of the chess set. They are set to be in silver and gold with uncut, polished gems set in them not a small chess set. It will be black the good versus white the bad. Cat will need to stay one step ahead of the competition to stay alive and win the game. I had grown up during the Cold War when the East and West were squared off in a global game.
With the OPEC embargo, it suddenly seemed like a huge game of chess where somebody had thrown in an unexpected move and upset not just the game but all the rules. It was not an endless battle between two forces, but a complex dance in which each move affected every other.
What role do multiple, interwoven time frames play in your storytelling, and why do you prefer to use this technique? I think one of the most important skills we humans possess is our ability to look at events that are happening around us, and to place them within a larger historical context.
Like that famous line of George Santayana: So what past was Santayana talking about? And whose memory? How do you mean? It must not be forgotten that the closest unions are those of opposites. What roles do these layers of families play? Or someone related to or descended from those characters, whether historically real or invented by me.

One of the things I liked the best about The Eight is that it was a good mix between adventure which I found very suspenseful and engaging and the rather new age-y story about the significance of the chess set which I was not overly interested in, but whatever.
