Connecting Da Vinci Legacy and Daughter of God
The Linz Testament and DoG are _continuations_ of a theme I began in Da Vinci Legacy.
The THREE books are closely linked to one another. I would never have written Linz and DoG had I not started the process in DVLegacy ...
The Elect Brothers of St. Peter are patterned after and inspired by the Templars which is why
- they originated in about the same time period
- under similar circumstances
- have the same motives (protect and continue the bloodline, restore the proper leadership and theology to the church),
- the same physical treasure to protect (bones of the bloodline's origin),
- have associated themselves with scientific, literary, artistic and musical luminaries,
- have a secret that would destroy the Church as it exists today,
Plus DVLegacy has strikingly similar characters to those in DVCode and the hero and heroine who are co-equal as in DoG and DVC ... very unusual for a thriller, but symbolic of the co-equal male and female characters of God.
Then, of course, there is the issue of a similar title, which while not protectible, can be used as evidence of infringement
