Something that will change everything. But will it be a new beginning or the End of Days?

About the Author

In 2007 Simon Toyne quit his job and moved to France to fulfil a long-held desire to write a thriller. After a sleepless night crossing the channel, he and his family abandoned a planned eight-hour drive to their new home and limped instead to the city of Rouen. It was the sight of the sharp spire of Rouen Cathedral piercing the pre-dawn sky that gave birth to the fiction Citadel of SANCTUS and THE KEY.SANCTUS and THE KEY became immediate bestsellers. To date they have been translated into 23 languages and published in 40 countries.

Reviews

Praise for SANCTUS and THE KEY:`Among the best current thrillers' SUNDAY EXPRESS`A cool, confident debut ... with pace, grace and a keen eye for cinematic effect' DAILY TELEGRAPH`Intriguing and engaging ... Relentless pace. An exciting and interesting read. I look forward to returning to Ruin, where there are plenty of stories waiting to be told' THE SUN`High concept, debut conspiracy thrillers don't come with higher expectations than this. Hard to think of it as a debut, better to think of it as the beginning of a massive new adventure, and a so-long to Dan Brown' MIRROR'A fast moving, thoroughly enjoyable, adventure - plenty of action, plenty of intrigue and a wonderfully imaginative reinterpretation of a slice of religious history. The sort of novel to devour in one sitting' KATE MOSSE

Great book, wraps up the story well, But also leaves the imagination asking questions as to the fate of the earth now that Eden has been restored.
Nicci Horton on
 
The final book in the trilogy by Simon Toyne, following Sanctus and The Key. This religious conspiracy takes you on a journey to Armageddon. It will question your faith. The book, as like the past two, was very well written and enthralling. It is a book you cannot put down. Simon Toyne hit gold with this trilogy. It is a must!!!!
