#CryptOfBone by @JFPennAuthor

The prophecy in Revelation declares that a quarter of the world must die.

Now a shadowy organization has the ability to fulfil these words. Can one woman stop the abomination before it’s too late?

ISRAEL. A victim of Jerusalem Syndrome jumps to his death from the top of the Western Wall, his body smashed on the ancient stones. Another disembowels himself under the scrawled figure of the Pale Horse of the Apocalypse with the chilling words, “God told me to do it.”

Dr Morgan Sierra travels to Israel to investigate the deaths and becomes embroiled in an international conspiracy that will use cutting-edge technology to carry an ancient curse to mankind and threaten those she loves.

Morgan joins agent Jake Timber at ARKANE, a secret government agency investigating the supernatural. Together they must hunt down the Devil’s Bible, pursued all the way by the evil forces of Thanatos.

From the catacombs of Paris to the skeletal ossuary’s of Sicily and the Czech Republic, Morgan and Jake must find the Devil’s Bible and stop the curse being released into the world before one in four are destroyed in the coming holocaust. Because in just seven days, the final curse will be spoken and the prophecy will be fulfilled.


BLOOD HAS SEEPED into the stones of Jerusalem for a millennia.



(Curl Up Press, 3 January 2017, ebook, 270 pages, bought from @AmazonKindle)




I’ve become a huge fan of the author over the past few months since I stumbled across her book, End of Days which I thought was amazing. I still have quite a lot of her back catalogue to read, mainly the ARKANE books. I thought Crypt of Bone was a terrific read. There’s something I love about the blend of ancient legends and modern technology and I love the idea of the ARKANE agency, they remind me of the TV series Fringe and the like. Thanatos is the Greek god of death, a fitting name for a fanatic hell-bent on wiping out what he sees as ‘unfit’ members of the population to welcome in a new perfect race. Sound familiar? Hitler anyone? This has everything I’ve come to expect from the author’s books; great characters, fast pace and lots of action. I look forward reading the other ARKANE books at some point.
