Together, Robert and Sophie work together in a quest to find the Holy Grail, which is in fact Mary Magdalene’s tomb or something that is related to it.

Using Jacques Sauniere’s difficul clues, they are aware that if they do not succeed or if the Holy Grail falls in the wrong hands, the ancient truth will be lost forever…
This book was as amazing as Harry Potter. I loved it! I really recommend to people to read this book at least once.
