Stairway of the Gods by Vic Warren is the beautiful love story of Joan and Paul Webster set in the Philippines. Joan Webster discovers some precious artifacts after an earthquake in the Philippines. Her husband, Paul, is in hospital after being hurt in the earthquake and she realizes that she has to keep her discovery a secret or die. The novel has the right mix of adventure, travel, and romance to make it an exhilarating read and it looks like a perfect novel that can be made into a movie. With a well researched theme, the story will expose you to the Philippine culture and lifestyle.

A romantic adventure set in an exotic location, this book is a fast paced read and will keep readers glued to the story. The romance of Joan and Paul is also exotic, like the location, and their characters are well portrayed by the author. The imagery is so beautiful that readers can actually visualize the beauty of the place. The story has been masterfully worked around the mysterious treasure buried by the Japanese officer, General Tomoyuki Yamashita, which Joan finds during the earthquake and the betrayal, murder, and intrigue have been woven together well.

The characters are likable and relatable to readers and they will find the story of lost treasure, suspense, murder, and romance highly entertaining. The author's love of travel is evident from the descriptions in the story. The intrigue, treasure, romance, and exotic location works well in favor of the book. A very original theme and an engaging and entertaining novel.
