Publisher's Summary

“When the thousand years are ended, Satan will be released from his prison.” Revelation 20:7
The thousand years are ended.
A marble tablet found in the ruins of Babylon warns of the resurrection of a banished serpent in the final days. A sarcophagus is discovered in the deepest ocean, locked by seven seals scattered throughout the ancient world.
As the Brotherhood of the Serpent race to find the seals before a rare lunar eclipse over the heart of Jerusalem, ARKANE agents Morgan Sierra and Jake Timber battle to find them first.
But this time, evil threatens to destroy all that Morgan loves and she must wrestle an apocalyptic foe as well as fighting to conquer her own fears.
In a fast-paced adventure from the ruins of Iraq to the snake-handling churches of the Appalachian Mountains, from archaeological digs in Israel to the tombs of Egypt, Morgan and Jake must find the seven seals and stop the resurrection of an evil as old as mankind. An evil that will usher in the End of Days.

Well told the snakes didn't even trouble me

Any additional comments?

Serpents are just not one of my favorite things in life, to be honest I hate them the only good one is a dead one. To be honest they are the one thing that I fear the most. When I started this audio I thought oh lord will I be able to finish it. What I found was a wonderful delightful story that had me sucked in snakes or no snakes. It was told in a way that I could deal with my fears and really forgot all about the snakes for the most part. The detail given from the bible to the seeking of the seals to bring one demon to life really pulls you in from the danger of the unknown to the people who seek it and the ones willing to kill to get them really keeps you invested in this story. What is truly minded blowing is the ending, it all becomes very real for the reader. Lives will be lost but more will live as they try to bring the unnatural to life.

The narrator does and outstanding job pulling the reader in for me she made this story so real with her tones, the way she pulled in the danger and those that really seemed cold (which is how they should seem to us) to those trying to bring the serpent to life and those trying to keep it dead. There were no background noises or any places where the volume changes. No repeat of words or uneven tones or sounds. Her voice is very pleasant from her males who are bold to her sweet older men, he females from the elderly to the very young. I had no trouble understanding or knowing what each character was feeling or who was talking. Ms. Giguere has put a lot of time and thought into this audio you can tell from her powerful character voice, their tones and emotions. I have really enjoyed this and can’t wait to listen to more of her work.

Ms. Penn has taken time to do her research penning a wonderful tale of the end of time. Her books are so real you get lost in them. Her characters become family you want to pull them in to protect them from the evil. You can feel the danger coming off the pages as it wraps you in its arms feeling like you are there. Even the good are normal they have done things they are not proud of you have no trouble relating to them. I am not sure what happen to the lady who was taking the venom. I am not sure if I was so caught up in what was going on at the time that I missed it or if we were not told. I had no other issues. It really was a powerful story and very believable of ancient tales of the end of days. The author had me from the first page until the last not knowing if the end was near or if it could be turned around. At times my beat over time I could feel the serpent and could almost feel his power. There are a lot of twists and turns that really add to the story as well as old characters we have come to love and new one. There are secret, dishonesty, death, evil as people race to bring down people who are trying to bring this serpent back to life in hopes of bring evil and power to their selves. They just might be surprised at the outcome as the hunter becomes the hunted. If you enjoy books of this nature you do not want to miss this one.

Best Book of the ARKANE series

End of Days is the best book in this series. It tells a different interpretation of Revelations. Each time I put down the book since I was started reading the book during a working week, I couldn't but help to wonder how the story is going to end.

I just love how the serpent is revealed in this book and the religious meaning of what the snake means in each religions.

The ending of the story is sad without giving the ending away. I can't wait for the next book in the ARKANE series to know what will happen next to one of the main character that may or may not come back.

The narrator Veronica Giguere delivered another perfect performance. The narrator provided the perfect voice for Morgan Sierra. I would like to say that she is Morgan Sierra.

I was given this audiobook by the author and volunteered to write an unbiased review for this book. I was not compensated or influenced in any way for writing this review.
