Product Description

For William Barrow, two thousand years is a very long time…too long, when it is a perpetual punishment for betraying Jesus Christ.

The man originally known as Judas Iscariot is on a mission to recover thirty silver shekels once paid to him for his ultimate treachery. Twenty-two coins have been recovered, leaving just eight to go. But when his Russian nemesis, Viktor Kaslow, also becomes immortal, the stakes are immediately raised.

Kaslow has followed William and his son, Alistair, to Hong Kong in search of a ‘blood coin’ passed down through Genghis Khan. The coin presently belongs to an esteemed Chinese collection. But along with the coin are other cursed items from the famed Mongol Emperor. William soon learns he can’t have the ‘one’ without the others.

William has waited eight hundred years for a second chance to reclaim this particular coin that inspired the Mongolian Empire’s bloody violence it was once famous for. While Kaslow closes in, seeking his own vengeance, William and Alistair race against the CIA and an unscrupulous American businessman intent on reaching the cursed ‘treasure trove’ before them.

Much is at stake for the Barrows and the world, as a deadly weapon unseen for centuries lies in wait alongside blood coin number twenty-three….


****This new edition of Reign of Coins comes to you after a thorough tightening of the story, following constructive feedback during the past year. I would like to thank Alisa Gus, of Curiosity Quills Press, for her invaluable editing assistance in preparing this book for re-release. Peace to all, Aiden James ~ April 16th, 2013****


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”

5.0 out of 5 stars An unforgettable execution of a compelling premise, an immortality mystery, and the quest for redemption May 10 2012
By Eve Paludan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I am a huge fan of this series and I also wrote a 5-star review of the first book. Author Aiden James nails it again in Reign of Coins. As an author myself, I know when a premise of a book carries with it a lot of risk when you have such a big concept like Judas Iscariot's quest to retrieve the thirty coins that were his payment for the betrayal of Jesus. He's doing it because he believes that he is cursed to wander the earth forever, if he can't gather up the coins, that his eventual salvation is at stake. His book kept me up all night as I blasted through this international adventure that is packed with a dangerous journey, compelling emotion, and spectacular bad guys like the villain you love to hate, Viktor Kaslow, the Russian menace. Riveted to this Indiana Jones type adventure, I couldn't stop watching this story unfold in settings as rich as Hong Kong, with clues plucked from purloined documents and real investigation procedures. Plenty of spine-tingling scenes, including getting captured, magical artifacts, and of course, a woman, and others in mortal danger kept me on the edge of suspense for page after page. The ending is an amazing twist that brought a tear to my eye. Well-researched, well-written, and with loved ones in jeopardy, and high spiritual stakes, Reign of Coins will stay with you for a long time. Five stars, top-notch, breathtaking writing from a master of the craft. -- Eve Paludan, author of The Man Who Fell from the Sky (Angel Detectives Case #1) and Taking Back Tara

5.0 out of 5 stars A must read May 7 2012

A great mix of Indiana Jones and Bond all rolled into one. This was a cool adventure with a surprising ending. William and his son go looking for a coin and end up saving the world. Very entertaining, excellent character development. I loved it just as much as the first one.

5.0 out of 5 stars A thrilling adventure! May 18 2012
By Ginette Rennie - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book was an amazing adventure!! I enjoyed the first book in the series, but this one set the bar even higher. What really endears me to this story, is how the author can make a loathe-worthy character such as Judas Iscariot likable! I found myself relating to his plight intensely, wanting him to succeed in finding the coins so he could bring peace to his tortured soul. The relationship Judas (or William Barrow) shares with his son Allistair adds a lot of depth to the story line. It's so full of warmth but enough wrought with imperfection that it rings true. Then there's the beautiful love story that our main character shares with his wife Beatrice. There is one scene between them in the ending that literally had me crying it touched me so deeply. To me, there's a general theme of redemption in these books. Judas (William) seeking the coins to redeem himself to Jesus, trying to make amends to Allistair for missing so many years of his life, and waiting for Beatrice to release him from the guilt over abandoning her. I eagerly anticipate the next installment to the series, and can't wait to see what adventures will be in store for our immortal adventurer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mr. Aiden James does it again May 12 2012
By TammyD - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
WOW, right from the beginning I was hooked. This book is riveting and action packed from the first sentence and I was hating to get to the last sentence. This book contains mystery, suspense, action, history and romance all rolled into one of the best story plots I have read in awhile. Aiden brings you into the book like you are watching it unfold in person instead of reading it. I can't wait for the next book to see where William/Judas takes us next. The best thing about the Judas Chronicles is each story can stand alone and be a great read, but when you read them in a series you see the experiences that make William/Judas who he is and gives an interesting perspective into how he is becoming who he wants to be and the type of person he wants to be for his family. I LOVED THIS BOOK. Thank you Aiden for sharing your talent with us. I will be waiting for the next adventure.

5.0 out of 5 stars Riveting Sequel! May 15 2012
By Shari - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
After reading 'Plague of Coins/The Judas Chronicles Part 1', I was anxious for a sequel...and boy, did Aiden James deliver! 'Reign of Coins' is an edge-of-your-seat thrill ride into China with William Barrow, aka Judas Iscariot, on the hunt for another blood coin. With a compelling story-line, expertly developed characters, and just enough plot twists and turns, you will surely be glued to each page! The cliff-hanger ending has me salivating for Part 3...Summer 2013 is a long way off, but I am certain it will DEFINITELY be worth the wait!
