Product Description

Product Description

Krontos Lazarevic may be the vilest sorcerer to ever live. He stands in the way of William Barrow (aka Judas Iscaritot) finishing his quest to reclaiming thirty pieces of silver paid to him to betray Jesus Christ.

Forced to flee an underground fortress in Abingdon, Virginia, William and his family, along with former CIA specialist, Cedric Tomlinson, and William’s immortal druid companion, Roderick Cooley, end up in the quirky spiritual town of Sedona, Arizona. For a short while, it appears they might finally have a moment to enjoy life without looking over their shoulders. But the purchase of a horse ranch brings only temporary happiness once Krontos demands William’s surrender of the Dragon Coin.

In the midst of this latest crisis, another blood coin resurfaces. Believed lost with the fall of the Third Reich, this coin was once legendary for miraculous events among prisoners at Stutthof and later Auschwitz concentration camps. For that reason alone, it is preferred by Krontos over the Dragon Coin. But the coin also is key to restoring a medieval shrine known as The Silver Trinity of Death.

The race is on to block Krontos from purchasing the Stutthof-Auschwitz Coin from the antiquities black market. If the shrine is restored to its previous state, nothing will stand in the way of Krontos’s grand designs—something he once enlisted the Nazis to help accomplish.

The atrocities of World War II serve as a reminder that unspeakable horror is never far away. And as such, the stakes have never been higher, or deadlier, for William and the gang as they travel to Germany, Poland, and finally Hungary to stop this latest madman from taking over the world.

Acclaim for the novels of Aiden James:

"The intense writing style of Aiden James kept my eyes glued to the story and the pages seemed to fly by at warp speed. ...Twists, turns, and surprises pop up at random times to keep the reader off balance. It all blends together to create one of the best stories I have read all year."
--Detra Fitch, Huntress Reviews for "The Devil's Paradise"

"Aiden James has written a deeply psychological, gripping tale that keeps the readers hooked from page one."
--Bookfinds review for "The Forgotten Eden"

"Not only is Aiden James a storyteller par excellence, but his material for his story is riveting."
--Huntress Reviews for "The Forgotten Eden"

"The hook to this excellent suspense thriller is the twists that will keep readers wondering what is going on as nothing is quite what it seems. Adding to the excitement is that the audience will wonder whether the terror is an evil supernatural creature or an amoral human...Aiden James provides a dark thriller that grips fans from the opening."
--Harriet Klausner for "The Forgotten Eden"

"Aiden James writing style flows very easily and I found that "Cades Cove" snowballed into a very gripping tale. Clearly the strengths in the piece were as the spirit's interaction became prevalent with the family... The Indian lore and ceremonies and the flashbacks to Allie Mae's (earthly) demise were very powerful. I think those aspects separated the work from what we've seen before in horror and ghost tales."
--Evelyn Klebert, author of "A Ghost of a Chance" and "Dragonflies"

"Aiden James has a keen eye for detail and an uncanny knack for scaring the hell out of me. We are watching a master at work. "The Raven Mocker" is a nearly perfect thriller. Ghost stories don't get any better than this."
--J.R. Rain, Bestselling author of the "Vampire for Hire" series

"As with the previous titles I have read by this author, I found the author's writing style to be silky smooth and the main plot line to be extremely creative. The fertile imagination of Aiden James definitely knows what today's readers want to see in their stories."
--Detra Fitch, Huntress Reviews for "The Vampires' Last Lover"

4.0 out of 5 stars The Coin Search Continues 18 July 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is the fifth book in the Judas Chronicles which concerns the immortal Judas's search for the 30 pieces of silver which have been scattered through time for his betrayal of Jesus Christ. Only when all coins are found will Judas gain his mortality and be allowed to have a normal life span and to be able to die. I found his son rather annoying in this book and this is what made me give this review only four stars. A good read, however I do recommend reading all of the books in order. I look forward to the next book in the series to see how Judas and co find the next coin.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun read 19 Feb 2014
By Pelaqita - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
As usual Aiden James has written another book that is fast paced, entertaining and full of historical references. I have enjoyed reading these series of books and this one did not disappoint me. In each of the books of this series, the book is a stand alone with just enough background to fill the reader in on what has been happening in previous books, without it being redundant. However, reading the entire series is highly recommended as you don't want to miss one adventure of the characters.

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW! 16 Feb 2014
By Book Nut - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
In the 5th installment of the Judas Chronicles, Aiden James takes William and his entourage to Germany to recover the Stutthof-Auschwitz Coin from the antiquities black market. I felt the emotional turmoil that Aiden has had his characters go through as they visit the concentration camps. The story is well written and I love the characters....even the ones that make me cringe. Krontos again proves to be the evil monster that he is. We'll done Aiden! Loved this story and look forward to #6!

5.0 out of 5 stars TYRANNY OF COINS IS GREAT 13 Mar 2014
By S. Faatz - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Aiden James is a master story teller who keeps you interested i what will happen next. This is book number 5 in the Judas Chronicles and by far the best so far. We follow William/Judas on another quest to find one of the coins he was paid for lthe betraying Jesus over 2000 years ago. This coin is called lthe Holocaust Coin as it was in the concentration camps during WWII and was said to be linked to miraculous events among the prisoners there. You will follow William and his family and friends into Germany, Poland and Hungary in search of the coin. Of course there is a villin trying to stop them from finding the coin. We met the sorcerer Krontos in the Dragon Coin and he is still as evil as ever. Will he have success in stopping William from finding coin number 26? Will our old friend (said with tounge in cheek) show up as this is his part of the world? You will have to read the latest in the adventures of William Judas Barrow to find out. I highly recommend this book as it is the best so far in this series and as always is acton packed with lots of twists and turns to keep you turnig pages till the end.
