The Green Cathedral – Kerry McDonald & Lee Tidball

Book on table


A slow-burner that does well to build the tension.

Thank you to Love Books Tours for the gifted copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. 


Deep in the jungle lies the deadliest kind of beauty. 

As a DEA agent caught in an unwinnable drug war, Abel has spent his life with the ugliest side of humanity. It’s no wonder he’s given in to corruption, bribery, and an illegal side hustle that has him on the run from some of the most dangerous men in South America. 

Then he stumbles on a deadly, abandoned alien girl who has made a home under the green canopy of the deepest part of the jungle. Her spacecraft crash-landed a decade ago; his life crashed and burned well before that. 


But as this unlikely pair grows closer, Abel will realize that his dark past has tracked him down and threatens to destroy the very beauty he has fallen in love with.

The Green Cathedral is a fast-paced thrill-ride that examines the nature of beauty and the power it has to heal our damaged souls.


This book is an odd one for me. I found it quite difficult to get into as there seemed to be lots of build up for things that seemed to be explained away rather quickly. 

I do wonder if there’s going to be a sequel as a few things happened that were then never heard about again which could be explained in a second book. 

All in all, this book had some great characters that were really well-written and had great development (I loved Flaviola) and some good ideas, I just feel it was a little rushed at the end.
