Simon Toyne’s debut novel, Sanctus, is a new must-read for the fall. The book follows a few main characters who are all intertwined in an ancient prophecy and a secret that will rock the world if discovered. Sanctus is filled with history, religion, mystery, and suspense. It asks the question of just how far someone would go to protect a long-hidden secret that would unravel the faith of millions if discovered.

Taking place in the city of Ruin in Turkey, Sanctus is a page-turning thriller that fans of Dan Brown are sure to appreciate. The novel compels the reader forward with the unanswered questions it poses, only to astound them with the revelation of what lay hidden deep within the Citadel at the very end of the novel. The religious mystery/conspiracy plot has been done before, but not with this kind of intensity and baffling twist. This is a definite must-read for fall!

Disclosure: I received my copy of this book free from Goodreads. However, this has no effect on my opinion of the book or my review.
