    I had high hopes for this one, but was oh so disappointed. The concept of having an immortal Judas in search of the now lost 30 pieces of silver he received in exchange for betraying Jesus lends itself to so many outstanding possibilities. However, we are left with a second rate "thriller" and a main character who shows no real inking of having over 2000 years of life experience though he feels a compulsive need to remind us in what seems to be at least once every other paragraph. He is crude, r [...]

    Awesome premise that didn’t deliverI was excited to read Plague of Coins as this is the type of book I love to read – a book that weaves popular biblical stories throughout an action packed thriller. My expectations for this book were high, but in the end I was let down.I hard a hard time connecting with the voice in which the book was written. I almost stopped reading the book after the first page and a half. However, when I found out that the narrator, William, was actually Judas Iscariot [...]

    This book was spectacular, until about the 40% mark. Then, it was as if another author took over and hijacked the really cool premise of an immortal Judas Iscariot doomed to search for his 30 pieces of silver to try to "repent" for his sins. Suddenly, the book took a horrible turn to a trashy spy novel. Once "Amy Golden Eagle" (yes, that was her name) joined the cast, all of the women in the book were talked about in terms of their looks (including the nurses for an injured CIA agent who were de [...]

    The Plague of Coins was an interesting twist to the story of Judas Iscariot. It created a sympathetic aura around this infamous character, providing him with dangerous, surprising adventures in faraway lands, both for the sake of his soul and for the United States government. It created an interesting perspective on his participation in the crucifixion of Jesus Christ and a fascinating spin on much of the traditional mythos of Christianity. It was, overall, an interesting plot that moved smoothl [...]

    I LOVE Aiden James!! I love how he can describe a place so well I can see it in my mind and not feel like he is overselling it to me. I loved this story! I really liked the characters and I loved Willam and Alister. Aiden has done a great job of giving William a sense of humor while be a tough son of a gun and being someone I wish I could know in real life. I enjoyed this book and I am very much looking forward to the next installment!

    Giving this four stars for creativity and inventiveness. Would say why, but that would spoil the surprise (and the fun).The main character is someone I might not have normally sympathized with, but that's exactly what happened. After all, how many books have I read about Judas as the main character? Just this one. Alternately grumpy, smart and funny (after all, he is more than 2000 years old) William Barrow, aka Judas Iscariot, will have you rooting for him from the get-go.

    Interesting concept of an immortal Judas trying to find and retrieve the internationally scattered 30 pieces of silver as a protagonist. In execution it is just another handsome scoundrel, beautiful intellectual female researcher, breathless full speed ahead adventure you've seen dozens of times before.

    clever narrator, a great character with sly humor and snarkiness, wish I liked the story resolution a bit more though

    What a disappointment! When I saw the plot of this book I thought 'What a great idea'. Even I, as a non writer could see the potential of this theme. Judas Iscariot betrayed Jesus, believing that He was not really the Son of God. Judas now knows that he was wrong and the only way to gain his own redemption is to complete the task of collecting the 30 pieces of silver, paid to him for his act of betrayal. These coins are distributed not just all over the world but also through the entire 2000 yea [...]

    I read, 'Plague of Coins' in a night! The story flows so rapidly and well that you just glide from one excitement to another and before you know it the book has reached the end.The story is about Judas who despite being "killed" many times over the past few eons always manages to awake with his body renewed and his quest to retrieve EVERY coin that he took to betray Christ continues on. Judas is surprised to find that he's not the only immortal on the planet as he occasionally runs into others f [...]

    I was intrigued by the blurb when I originally saw this book on . A book about Judas Iscariot.Jesus Christ's betrayer. The most hated person on Earth. So, I got the book and I wasn't let down.The premise of the book was great. Judas (aka William Barrows) is looking for the 36 shekels that was paid to him to betray Jesus. Because of that betrayal.he was made immortal. Nothing can kill him. Nothing at all. So far, he has collected 21 coins and he is on the search for the 22nd.Around the same time [...]

    I downloaded this book while it was free and as a whole I enjoyed it and was bitterly disappointed when it finished at 75% - this also caused me to wonder what the author was doing as by 70% the story seemed to be over yet I assumed it must have carried on a further 25-30% all too soon it became clear, why do authors do this?It is not the best written novel I have ever read and there were certain descriptions that made me roll my eyes and think of fan fiction, but these occurred at the beginning [...]

    I started reading this as a sample on my Kindle. I found the story line intriguing. However, I immediately disliked the style of writing and found the narrator almost despisable. James leaves little to the imagination - he spells EVERYTHING out for you - there is no such thing as indirect characterization in this book. That said, the situations were not well-explained, and at times made little sense. But, something kept me coming back for more. I was excited about picking this book up, and when [...]

    Surprisingly good! I got this free for my Kindle & honestly had not very high hopes for it, but the funny thing is, this author speaks exactly like I do! It was like reading something I had written if I had any talent for it. I have always found the character of Judas to be a bastard, just like everyone else, but here he was just another guy. An immortal guy looking for his lost 40 pieces of silver, but still just a guy. The story was fast paced and exciting and the characters all felt real [...]

    'Immortal Plague' was full of mystery, adventure, secrets and a paranormal twist. The storyline was great. I love how Aiden James writes in such a descriptive nature that transports you to another place. The way the story played out was interesting. The characters were a great cast of personalities. William has a great sense of humor. He makes an intriguing lead. The story as a whole was well written. I look forward to reading more of this series.

    Interesting choice for the main character. This was a super quick read. Action is good but everything moved too quickly for me. I like to "live" a little longer in each environment and I love detailed descriptors which this book didn't have enough of for me. I may check out the next book to see if there's growth with characters and locations but not in the near future.

    I like the premise of this book a lot. I hated the first couple of chapters, though. The writing felt very contrived as the author tried to set up the story. Still, once he got past introducing characters and setting up the plot, it was quite fun. Rathed ridiculous, but fun. Not sure I liked it enough to buy the next one, but fine vacation reading.

    Judas Iscariot is immortal and has to find all 30 shekels that he was paid. This story tells a part of one of his many "lives". He works at the Smithsonian, and does some side work for the CIA while he travels the world in his never-ending hunt for the 30 coins. It was a fun, entertaining read. Felt like it was part of a series, but was complete in itself.

    Aiden has a way of writing that pops you right into the scenes with the other characters. Very real and at times a bit heart racing. I loved all the details, it made everything come alive in my mind. If you like a little bond mixed with some Indie then this is the book for you. I love William he has such devotion to his wife and son. Great read I highly recommend it.

    Really liked this book. Love the subject of Judas and his shenanigans. Gets a little confusing with his son at times. Got a feeling that the Russians will play a big part in the rest of the series. And I also hope that the Eagles will continue also. Amazing what the Russians did in Iran, and hope something like that never comes to pass. Would wreck havoc on the planet.

    A book I really couldn't put down in my busy life where in-between writing and doing psychic readings it takes me ages to read a book sometimes not even finishing what I've started! But this page turning spooky thriller had me captivated,read it please, you won't be dissapointed. Aiden James weaves a great tale.

    Judas repented and has spent the last 2000 years walking the earth trying to collect each of the original 30 peices of silver in penance. An imaginative premise and a fun read. Thanks for loaning it to me Gina!

    Good premise based on Judas Iscariot. I would like to read more about where the 30 pieces of silver could have ended up.

    Imaginative and thoroughly enjoyable take on the fate of Judas Iscariot (Spoiler Alert: He can not die and lives through the ages trying to redeem himself.)

    I liked this book. I found the story to be interesting and different from my normal books. The story flowed well. A nice light read.

    A decent page turner. I would have liked it better it were more detailed like Matthew Reilly's books (am a big fan, especially of the complex backstories and the elaborate travails that have to be undergone to obtain the treasured objects).The concept of having an immortal as the protagonist and having him fight for his salvation over millennia lends itself to so many beautiful possibilities. I went in intrigued and with high hopes of having a tapestry of stories winding through time. However, t [...]
