Publisher's Summary

In the caves beneath an Italian lake, the fossil of a creature older than the Earth has been disinterred. In the Judaean desert, a legendary parchment has been discovered. One reveals the secrets of heaven. One foretells an impending hell. And deciphering their message has been left to paleontologist Carter Cox - a man of science whose faith in the empirical is about to be shaken by forces of evil beyond imagining.

Pretty cool story

I was intrigued by the description of this book and was not disappointed . Although not my usual fare, I really got into the story.
Kind of Dan Brown meets Ann Rice.
Tho not quite as well developed as a Brown or Rice, the author kept my interest throughout. Pretty cool story and a good start to an interesting and entertaining new series. I'm looking forward to the next book already :)

Loved it!

What made the experience of listening to Vigil the most enjoyable?

I enjoyed the writing and the story. It seemed to have a lot of different threads that had to come together, and that was a bit hard to keep track of at first, but once things began to tie together it was GREAT! The most memorable part for me was the scroll (no spoilers, but it gets very interesting towards the last 25% of the book.
