If you read Sanctus and The Key, the first two novels of the Sanctus trilogy, you'll certainly want to read this final installment of the series. A cyber attack at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center has not only disabled the Hubble telescope but the director has also gone missing.

FBI agent Joe Shepherd is handling the investigation and among the puzzling clues he finds left behind by the scientist are the words 'end of days'.

Meanwhile, American journalist Lib Adamsen has also disappeared. Trapped in the Syrian Desert, Lib is a prisoner of the prophecy that drove her there and she is now haunted by the terrible things about to come.

With a countdown clock left at Goddard ticking away, Shepherd realizes time is running out and something truly catastrophic is waiting in the wings to destroy mankind. Extraordinary events from extreme weather to odd animal behavior are harbingers of the coming transformation.

The question is are we rushing towards a revelation or total devastation? Never have the stakes been so high or the outcome so much in doubt as with this situation and only Lib holds the key to what will ultimately transpire.

If you thought the first two stories of this trilogy were exciting, you haven't read anything yet. Simon Toyne pulls out all the stops with this concluding novel. This wrap-up will leave you breathless!
