"Original, scary, rooted in the past but as current as tomorrow's nightmare. An enthralling read" (Lee Child)
"One of the boldest recent adventures in historical fiction" (Independent)
"A fantastic tale of human struggle against the forces of evil and an attempt to avert the apocalypse" (Soul & Spirit)
"Very much in the style of the epic thriller writers such as Wilbur Smith, Clive Cussler and Matthew Reilly, Scott has produced a veritable three course meal of a book in which every dish served up is superb" (Shropshire Star)
The end of the world starts now ...Ancient wisdom predicts the end of the world with uncanny precision. But it also provided the key to staving off apocalypse: a flawless sapphire of incomparable beauty carved into the perfect likeness of a human skull. Hidden for four centuries, a crystal skull of exquisite beauty has just been found by Stella Cody, who also inherits its legacy of dark secrets, intrigue, and murder. Facing an increasingly implacable enemy, Stella and her lover, Kit, struggle to crack the code that hides the Skull's intended resting place. Their search takes them from the intellectual rigour of Cambridge University to the untamed wildness of England's prehistoric stone circles. But time is against them, and they have days - hours - left to uncover the secret that may yet save the world.See all Product description

A well written story and a good read. For the negatives I would only say that I got a little confused in reading the historical chapters as during the course of the book they span over thirty years whereas the modern story is set over a couple of years.
On the whole worth the effort and would recommend.
The synopsis as described by Amazon is accurate but the book is very poorly written and I hate saying it but the author really lacks the kind of vigor required to tell this kind of story in gripping compelling way. If you are still contemplating buying this book, please please try and find an excerpt online or visit a bookshop so that you can read a few pages and see for yourself just how awful this really is.
