Publisher's Summary

When the last of the Remnant is murdered at the Sagrada Familia in Barcelona, Arkane agent Dr. Morgan Sierra is drawn into the hunt for a supernatural Key. She's joined by Agent Jake Timber, who must face his own fears as they decipher clues left behind by Kabbalist scholars.
From ancient sites in Spain to Israel and the Czech Republic, Morgan and Jake must follow the trail to the Key while evading Adam Kadmon, a man consumed by a lust for dark power.
As the planets align, Morgan and Jake race against time to find the Key and destroy it before the Devourers and the Polluted of God emerge from the Gates of Hell to ravage the earth.

An honest review is not always easy...

I never read this author's works previously, the title was intriguing, so I asked to read it for review. I love audio books, but sometimes I doze off, etc...which I did...but this was good enough to make me back up and listen to it all. I was intrigued by the subject matter (Jewish supernatural ideas) which I don't see too often. The performance was very well done...especially since a woman narrator had to do male voices, and did them quite well. I know I will want to read more with these is obvious there is a lot going on with them and there were just enough hints to make me curious. All around, a great read/listen.

When All Hell Nearly Breaks Loose

An amazing thriller that travels the world and walks the thin line between the real and surreal. I read the book when it was first published, but since I got an extra credit for re-joining audible, I thought I'd give this a go as an audiobook. Listening to the book I was taken on a journey with even more depth and fine storytelling than in the reading. A good night's sleep was lost on this one, and without regret.

It begins when Rabbi Santiago Pereira falls to his bloody death at the feet of the sculpture of Christ on the Sagrada Familia basilica in Spain. He's been running in hopes of escaping a man, now known as Adam Kadmon, determined to know where the Key to the Gates of Hell is hidden. Hell is real in the world created by Penn, and there is a key. It can fall into the wrong hands. The rich details of the book become more vivid in the audiobook, which I hadn't expected, and the tension keeps growing until the terrifying end of the book. Penn's writing is so well done that there isn't a moment when the fear of God and hell don't scare the living daylights out of the listener. Angels and golden letters, a Golem and rituals of ancient Jewish mysticism mix with one tough lady for quite an adventure.

I was a bit surprised by the narration. I would have expected the weight of the subject matter to be told by by a deeper, more threatening voice. But as the action ramped up, so did the narrator's intensity. It was very well done, just a surprise at first.

I'd highly recommend this audiobook for anybody dealing with a boring commute or in need of something that keeps them focused as the world around them disappears. Simply fabulous.
