Product Description

Product Description

When a visit to an old friend ends with a dead body and the appearance of a monstrous creature, Ash finds himself in more trouble than he could ever have imagined. An ever escalating crisis unfolds, as one after another his friends, colleagues and allies are maimed, murdered and kidnapped. While dodging Harpies and combating a Hydra, Ash comes to realise that a dangerous plot has formed; one which threatens the lives and minds of everyone he knows. Time is running out for him to uncover which god, goddess or primordial power is behind this sinister attempt to remake the world and the only place he can go to look for answers is hardly inviting.
Life is pure hell when you take a trip to the Underworld.

More About the Author

Born in London, too late to be a flower child but too early to take Gordon Gecko as a inspiration, I stumbled across three continents without ever discerning a guiding philosophy. As a child my parents seemed to think that anywhere that was synonymous with backwater, inbred, hill-billy jokes sounded just about right, so as a family we discovered the wild splendours of West Virginia, the Llyn Peninsula and the far north of the Scottish Highlands. Even though a succession of teachers had suggested that I was not particularly academically inclined (and some considered me not merely profoundly dyslexic but a visible drag to the potential of the whole human race) I studied Electrical Engineering, English Literature and American Studies, Shakespeare Studies and Law, in locales diverse as Edinburgh, Hull, Stratford and Singapore.

In a final attempt to escape any form of actual work I took up writing. Only to discover that it was far more demanding than any job I'd ever had and more addictive than morphine. Clumsy, to the point of tripping over single blades of grass, I took up Tai Chi in an effort to discover outer balance and it worked, these days there need to be at least three blades within a square inch before I land face first in the dirt.

I live in a tiny village somewhere in Shropshire, usually with one or more insane cats. All of whom considered my writing as a treasonous waste of time that should, by all rights, be spent seeing to their needs. I've long since been obsessed by narrative forms, be it novels, films, plays, or, for that matter, comic books. So, despite the incessant nagging of the cats, I'm happiest sat at my computer banging out sentences, considering character and plot details and discovering what happens next. I'm the author of the Hidden Academy series which so far comprises the three novels: The Unicorn Crisis; The Digital Wolf and Pantheon of the Dead. I hope to keep adding to this list at regular intervals. Currently I'm working on a fourth book in the series with the working title: Mithraic Mystery, which has Ash confronting the most ruthlessly ambitious forces of the Roman Empire.


The idea for the first novel (Unicorn) came to me as a joke, a joke which became a skit and then a short story. By the time I had written the novel I found that the joke no longer suited the book which Unicorn had become. I hope one day to finish the original joke as a short story set in the world of The Hidden Academy. It's likely that I'll find the room within the overall narrative structure as The Hidden Academy, as a project is likely to be extended to ten novels.

5.0 out of 5 stars Powerful writing 18 April 2012
By Ignite TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Kindle Edition
The third volume of Jon Rosenberg's Hidden Academy series will not disappoint any of his many fans. David Ash goes up against the Greek gods who are trying to regain their old powers. He needs to enable the return of his fellow Summoners who have all been spirited away and he journeys into Hades to do so. The work is darker, more thoughtful, than the earlier books which often contained a good deal of humour. Jon has moved his writing up to a new level with this story.

What impresses me greatly is the descriptive talent he displays in showing us the use of Ash's powers. There is some wonderful writing here and to be able to explain and describe so clearly a process which doesn't exist is an enviable skill. I read it, I saw it in my mind, I believed it. This book will enhance Jon Rosenberg's reputation as a skilled storyteller. His writing is developing both in style and in power. I loved it!

4.0 out of 5 stars Jon Rosenberg pantheon of the dead 31 Dec 2013
By Paul T
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I've liked this series and number three "The Pantheon of the Dead" doesn't disappoint. It's action packed and follows the other world versus our world theme. I've noted the improvement in his writing style through the series - it can be beautiful.
The criticisms I've read in other reviews, around he cultural stereotypes can be annoying - Llewellyn "Boyo" ( lived in Wales for 25 years and nobody said "boyo"!) and Scotland's "Nessie" - perhaps they should be dropped.
Overall great - give us more Jon!

5.0 out of 5 stars Still biased but they just get better! 16 April 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Things are getting serious for our hero David Ash, there is a Greek god in his kitchen, dryads in the garden and a friend in gruesome trouble. Once again Ash has to use all his powers of deduction and imagination to work out what the hell is going on and if the world is a worth saving and b if he can do it alone. With allies less than friendly and friends falling by the wayside Ash is in a darker episode than we have ever seen
Once again Jon has given us a ripping tale full of creatures who refuse to remain in the mythology section and beings of unlimited intelligence who have mother issues. I have been a huge fan of David Ash since I first met him and Jon does not disappoint with this outing. I quite agree with the previous reviewers this novel shows the subject matter and the author maturing - something a little sister never thought would happen!

5.0 out of 5 stars Intelligent and exciting fantasy series 15 April 2012
By Hollygo
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Pantheon of the Dead is the third in the series of the Hidden Academy and it sees our hero Ash up against the wrath of the Greek gods. Ash has his usual sidekicks but much of this story revolves more around his own strengths and integrity which helps the story flow much more fluidly than the previous novels. Jon Rosenburg's writing style is maturing and it's a pleasure to see this in his storytelling and leaves you with an impatience for his next installments, they just get better and better.

5.0 out of 5 stars BEST SO FAR 29 Jan 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Another can't -put-down book. Well developed characters and a fast moving plot, all just the thing to keep you page turning. Once again Ash runs foul a whole range of Gods, elementals, Fairies and other things there aren't categories for, all while developing new ways to use his powers and generally try to stay alive while saving humanity..... again.
His friends and colleagues return, but this time they are more bit-players while Ash tries hard not to fall foul of a whole range of of occult plots and entities, including the Goddess of the chaos before the Big Bang.
Excuse me while I nip onto Amazon to buy the next in the series...

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best yet 17 Jan 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Strong story with more depth than the first two. Really looking forward to the next instalment. Still missing a few of the wee words like "it", "to" and "for" in places.
