REVELATION OR DEVASTATION? The certainties of the modern world are about to be blown apart by a three thousand year-old conspiracy nurtured by blood and lies . A man throws himself to his death from the oldest inhabited place on the face of the earth, a mountainous citadel in the historic Turkish city of Ruin. This is no ordinary suicide but a symbolic act. And thanks to the media, it is witnessed by the entire world. But few understand it. For charity worker Kathryn Mann and a handful of others in the know, it is what they have been waiting for. The cowled and secretive fanatics that live in the Citadel suspect it could mean the end of everything they have built - and they will kill, torture and break every law to stop that. For Liv Adamsen, New York crime reporter, it begins the next stage of a journey into the heart of her own identity. And at that journey's end lies a discovery that will change EVERYTHING.

Pickpick

Rated this ‘pick‘ because it was a real page-turner so from that point of view a success. The author also has a great imagination and I didn‘t guess what the ‘sacrament‘ was. It was also total hogwash! Thinly veiled pop at Vatican. At beginning I could feel author writing. Not sure I ever warmed to chapters never more than 4 pages, sometimes less than 1. Don‘t think I‘ll read the sequel but I don‘t regret reading this, just wouldn‘t re-read it.

Should possibly have saved Night Circus for today‘s theme, but cannot recommend strongly enough The Sanctus Trilogy by Simon Toyne. Such a great reading experience and quite unique books as well. What are you waiting for? You won‘t regret it. #UniqueRead #ANewChapter

Day 12 - #adventrecommends

If you haven‘t read this trilogy yet - you need to! This was a great read. Packed full with history, mystery, intriguing characters and an exciting plot. It was a fast-paced read that kept me interested until the final page. This trilogy would make an excellent movie. If you enjoy reading Steve Berry or James Rollins books, I'm sure you will enjoy Simon Toyne's books too.

TrishB This has been on my horizon for ages but not brought it got round to! 11mo

These shelves house some of my husband‘s books. He‘s a huge fan of Ian Rankin, military history, and rock & roll. He also has several boxes of books in the basement. #someoneelsesbooks #riotgrams

TrishB He'd definitely get on with my hubby! 2y
LeahBergen I usually trade my husband's books in at the used bookstore as soon as he's done reading them. 😆 2y
Andrew65 Loved the whole Sanctus Trilogy, a wonderful read! 2y

Melissa_J @LeahBergen now you‘ve given me an idea as to how I can free up more shelf space for my books 🤣 2y
Melissa_J @Andrew65 my husband loved it! I‘m going to read it one of these days. It sounds like something I would really like. 2y
Andrew65 @Melissa_J I definitely think you would. I also enjoyed the first book in his Solomon Creed series, which the second book in that series has recently been published. 2y

The brilliant Sancti trilogy starts off with a man climbing to the top of a mountain, having escaped from the monastery below, and throwing himself off the mountain in front of cameras and many witnesses. Why? What ramifications would this have for the world and world religion? #mandown
In case I was too subtle & you didn't pick it up, I loved everything about this trilogy. If you haven't read it, or even heard of it, you need to stack it today!
