"The world desperately needs an infusion of hope. Jacob Hope... This is another gem of an offering from Luke Romyn. Action-packed, intriguing, and sprinkled with much of the author's trademark humor, Corpus Christi left me anxious to read the next installment. I loved it!" -- Eric S

"Well past 3D, Romyn's imagination can best be described as multi-dimensional." -- Claude Bouchard, internationally bestselling author of the Vigilante series.






Formerly titled Corpus Christi


Haunted by the toxic memories of a torturous foster-father, Jacob Hope yearns to make a difference in a world gone awry, trying to accomplish some small scrap of good in an ocean of wrong. Tumbling through life with no true direction, Jake unwittingly reveals a nightmare.

The gates of Hell have been unlocked, and something long imprisoned has broken loose from its shackles to roam free upon the Earth. It cannot be bargained with, it cannot be defeated, and it exists with only desolation in its heart....

Longing to confront such evil but not knowing how, Jake must embark upon a journey not only of destination, but of self-discovery. In his attempts to thwart a fallen angel, Jake must also come to grips with his own part in this almighty drama.

For above it all haunts the inheritance he alone must bear, a legacy which will save or doom all of mankind.






"This is a modern, mind blowing, heart racing theological adventure!
'Corpus Christi' is EPIC and I need the next installment STAT!"
-- Camelia Tawhiti

"Luke's descriptive passages come with a cadence of their own. My heart beats with the rhythm and my breathing quickens with anticipation of the outcome." -- GreenRaven

"Romyn has a talent for taking mythologies and weaving them into awe-inspiring, kickass modern adventures. "Corpus Christi" takes on the monotheistics in his latest epic, and it's totally awesome." -- Matt Pearson

    God vs Devil, Good vs Evil or a man vs his destiny?
    Having read The Dark Path by Mr Romyn, I thought I had an idea of what this book would be like. I was quite wrong! The book was just the stepping stone to a whole new level of awesome!
    To tell you too much about the book would, in my opinion, be wrong. I would rather you find out for yourself. What I can say is that Mr Romyn certainly knows how to weave an intricate tale that spans time itself. Twists and turns galore. The story contains amazing characters too. You have dark, evil monsters created from the genius mind of Mr Romyn, described in such detail that you can picture them in your minds eye and believe me, that can be scary at times. Then you have the good, from the sometimes reluctant bravery of man himself to the powerful guardians of all life in the universe.

    The ultimate battle of Good vs Evil. Or is it? Cant wait for Book 2..............

    This is my first Luke Romyn novel and if this is the standard, it won't be my last.

    The story kept me turning the pages, even when I was supposed to be going to sleep!

    5.0 out of 5 stars Another Masterpiece... 27 April 2013
    Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
    Corpus Christi is another fantastic book by Luke Romyn. I have thoroughly enjoyed reading all his books to date and this one was no exception. Every page was so brilliantly written; the story flowed, it twisted and it sucked me into the life of its self-doubting hero.

    The reappearance of a few familiar faces was also a nice touch, but I can tell you this; if a world on the verge of Armageddon was ever in serious need of a miracle, it would need to come in the form of Jacob Hope. Can't wait for Book Two!

    5.0 out of 5 stars Corpus Christi 21 Sept. 2014
    By Fee
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    For all this took me a while to read - which was nothing to do with the book itself, more tiredness from looking after two kids etc - it was a wild ride from the very start that when I did get moments to myself to read I was engulfed in Romyns' vivid descriptions of events that were happening.

    Whilst I am in now way shape or form religious, and since religions is somewhat of a taboo, this story did make me think, even though it pure fiction who is to say that it may never happen?

    John Hope, the main character is basically having a hard time coming to terms with the fact hat he is Christ reborn and tasked with the momentous burden of saving humanity from Armageddon.

    Pretty tall order for a simple guy right? He must convince not only himself but others through out his quest to stop this happening.

    The book will suck you in with you are religious or not and it will definite get you thinking for sure.

    I cannot wait to read book two in the series.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Another triumph 15 Mar. 2013
    Format:Kindle Edition
    I have become a fast fan of Luke Romyn since acquiring a kindle and enjoyed the latest addition to his works immensely. This tale brings the fantastical creatures honed during the Prometheus wars to a more relevant myth of the western world. I am looking forward to book 2 . Great book Luke

    5.0 out of 5 stars Another excellent read! 13 Aug. 2013
    By Peter J
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    After being introduced to Luke Romyn, via a Kindle offer for the first book in "The Prometheus Wars", I've quickly become a fan!
    Whilst it's not a sequel to "The Dark Path", it does follow a similar vein (forgive the pun as Vain, The Dark Man, does make a brief appearance).
    Jacob Hope is a reluctant hero who quickly finds himself out of his depth but struggles to do the right thing as he overcomes his disbelief.
    An excellent, fast-paced read that keeps you gripped until the finale.

    I've already downloaded the sequel and will be eagerly awaiting Mr Romyn's next books.
