Review

Praise for SANCTUS and THE KEY:
‘Among the best current thrillers’ SUNDAY EXPRESS

‘A cool, confident debut … with pace, grace and a keen eye for cinematic effect’ DAILY TELEGRAPH

‘Intriguing and engaging … Relentless pace. An exciting and interesting read. I look forward to returning to Ruin, where there are plenty of stories waiting to be told’ THE SUN

‘High concept, debut conspiracy thrillers don’t come with higher expectations than this. Hard to think of it as a debut, better to think of it as the beginning of a massive new adventure, and a so-long to Dan Brown’ MIRROR

'A fast moving, thoroughly enjoyable, adventure – plenty of action, plenty of intrigue and a wonderfully imaginative reinterpretation of a slice of religious history. The sort of novel to devour in one sitting' KATE MOSSE

From the Inside Flap

The much anticipated final instalment in the bestselling conspiracy thriller trilogy by Simon Toyne, author of SANCTUS: 'Plenty of action, plenty of intrigue and wonderfully imaginative. The sort of novel to devour in one sitting' Kate Mosse. For all fans of Dan Brown.

AFTER THE RISE, COMES THE FALL.

The forbidden Citadel at the heart of the ancient Turkish city of Ruin opens its gates for the first time in history. Why now, after centuries of secrecy?

A deadly disease has erupted within, and threatens to spread beyond its walls. Infected charity worker Gabriel Mann may hold the cure - but can one dying man stop an epidemic?

Without him, former journalist Liv Adamsen is vulnerable, surrounded by strangers in the desert oasis that is her new home. Liv, however, has far bigger concerns than just her own life...

In the USA, newly qualified FBI Agent Joe Shepherd investigates the disappearance of NASA's most senior professor. Is it a vanishing act, an abduction, or something darker? Shepherd's investigation approaches a powerful conspiracy with global reach, and profound consequences.

For them all, this much is clear: something big is coming. Something that will change everything. But will it be a new beginning or the End of Days?

THE TOWER - SIMON TOYNE

The final part of the trilogy which started with Sanctus. A book that had me googling Ruin and citadels. The Key - still had Liv and Gabriel on the run from the Sanctus and now The Tower.

We find ourselves in America, with rookie FBI agent Joe Shepherd desperately trying to find out why Hubble and other hugely expensive satellite programmes have suddenly either gone off-course or been destroyed. The more he tries to find his former professors, the more he feels as though someone is always that one step ahead of him.

Gabriel has left Liv in the desert with the starmapp while he returns to the citadel because he has caught the Lamentation disease. With the help of the policeman Arkadian, he persuades the remaining monks to turn the citadel into an isolation centre for others who have caught this disease.

Liv finds herself in the desert and is joined by a people looking for "home".

I HAD to read this final book in the series. I started the book and wondered if I'd somehow missed the plot when I came across Joe Shepherd, so had to go back and re-read THE KEY. It helped me get back into the "mood" of this series. I'm giving it five stars because I think that the whole concept of a place like the Citadel, the monks and people trying to stop anyone from finding the truth, was simply brilliant and I honestly don't think Simon Toyne could have finished the trilogy any other way. But, I still think that the first book, Sanctus, was the most believable.

The final chapter...... I truly enjoyed the first book Sanctus, I know it had similarities to other authors and storylines and lots of action, however, what an absolutely brilliant story!!!! The Key and The Tower both had in my opinion endless potential, literally anything could have happened after the revelation in the first book that's why only 4 stars. All in all a good story that started great and finished very good....maaaan the potential after Sanctus......Looking forward to seeing the movie !

Fantastic book. Part of a trilogy which should be read in order (Sanctus and The Key being the other two). These are the best novels that I have read in a long while. Could not recommend more highly.

I have enjoyed reading all three books generally. Simon Toyne has researched the background very thoroughly and added some really thought provoking hypothesis. He has added his skill as a writer, sprinkled some well rounded characters and produced an unputdownable series of books. I loved Sanctus,really enjoyed The Key and I must say that The Tower is the most fascinating ending to the series.

Simon Toyne's books are really well written and easy to read. There was never a point where I felt disengaged or bored by the narrative. Very engaging and naturally talented writer.

What a brilliant book, it is gripping from start to finish. even when I thought I knew where the plot was going the story sidestepped into a new direction and threw me. A must read book for all who love historic, exciting thrillers.
