Format: Hardcover
Modern day Turkey - the city of Ruin. Above the city of Ruin is The Citadel - a mountain enclave that houses a group of monks named the Sancti who have protected their secrets for thousands of years. And suddenly one day high on a mountain above The Citadel is a man, standing with his arms outstretched - in the shape of a cross. The world sees him....and sees him fall. And to another group who have been patiently watching the Sancti for hundreds of years as well, it is the sign they have been waiting for.

One group is determined to protect their secrets as much as the other group wants them exposed to the world. Caught up in the conflict is journalist Liv Adamson, the sister of Samuel, the fallen monk.

I enjoy conspiracy thrillers and with Sanctus, Simon Toyne has penned a thoroughly entertaining one. I liked that the two main protagonists were female for a change. There's lots of action and although the plot line is not new, Toyne has put his own twist on it. The promise of discovering what the mystery sacrament was kept me turning pages til the very end. Some plot points seemed a bit far fetched - most notably the reason that the sect did not discover that Samuel had a living relative. But you know, I really wasn't looking for a hard and fast fact based read when I picked up Sanctus. What I did get was what I expected - an entertaining read. Readers with strong religious beliefs may not enjoy Toyne's alternative views. But fans of James Rollins, Steve Berry and of course, Dan Brown will enjoy it.

Sanctus is the first in a trilogy. I am very curious as to where Toyne will take the characters after the last 40 pages of Sanctus.

Format: Paperback
Loved this book, At first I wasn't sure but it very quickly caught me up , my imagination in overdrive. I loved it so much I ordered The Key the next book in the series. THIS is a really thoughtful book with a twist, exciting the characters awesome, a real page turner. I EXPECT this book to be made into a MOVIE if it isn't that will be a real shame. I TOTALLY recommend this book. This book is what a call a keeper and those books I do not lend.

I loved this book until the last 30 pages. It was gripping right from the start, moved along at a fast pace with lots of action and an intriguing story line. However, it became too much to comprehend during the final chapters. There is a sequel to this book and perhaps it will tie everything in together and make it somewhat more plausible.

I didn't expect to like this book, but it was fast paced, action-packed, but still incredibly easy to follow. Really enjoyed the surprise ending and now I am on book two!
