Publisher's Summary

The prophecy in Revelation declares that a quarter of the world must die and now a shadowy organization has the ability to fulfill 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, specialist in psychology of religion, 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. She joins agent Jake Timber at ARKANE, a secret government agency investigating the supernatural and together they hunt down the Devil's Bible, pursued all the way by the evil forces of Thanatos.
From the catacombs of Paris to the skeletal ossuaries 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.

Excellent, fast-paced thriller

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. For me, it's better than Pentecost, the first in the series, but like Pentecost, towards the end I was loathe to put it down.

It's full of action and adventure but has a slightly different feel to the previous one, though I can't quite explain why. If you like fast-paced thrillers and don't object to supernatural occurrences, you'll enjoy this.

Evil verse Good who will win

Any additional comments?

This starts out pretty fast with action, thrills and chills as people are running to find the evil bible which was made years ago and if in the wrong hands could turn the world into a nightmare. There is mystery of why, where, and what they want to do with this book. As the author takes you through the wild pace she gives you a little history lesson which you will totally enjoy. People are jumping to their deaths and no one has a clue why. The only clue is a drawing of a dark figure leaving everyone wondering what it could mean and what it has to do with so many deaths.

I thought the narrator Veronica Giguere did a good job, there were places in the audio that the volume does change. I am guessing this is when a break was taken. She has a nice voice and good character voices. This was not as even flowed as other audios I have listen to from this author but it was a nice listen. The character voices are nice you have no trouble knowing who is talking and what they are thinking. I heard no background noise or and repeats of words. I enjoyed the listen and look forward to listening to more from this narrator.

This was a pretty fast pace listen with lots of information and tons going on around it. This story is well written with a powerful meaning leaving us wondering if good will out do evil. The author gives you a great plot with a wonderful story along with outstanding characters. Here you will find believers and non believers of the prophecy in Revelation declaring that a quarter of the world must die. A few believe and do their best to make it happen turning the world into an evil place. You will be blow away with all the evil ones have in store for you as they take over your mind making you do things you would never do. The writing style is wonderful as the author displays the plot of good against evil. I am looking forward to the next one in this series.
