Professional reviews

"Liv Adamsen and Gabriel Mann race to find the key to a plague at the Citadel, in the ancient city of Ruin. Simon Vance's smoky voice captures the tension and mystery in a thriller featuring a religious conspiracy. His tense narration moves the story along as Mann and Adamsen seek to evade "the Ghost," a mercenary at work in the Syrian desert, and restore order to the world. The duo must find the answer in a cuneiform tablet before it's too late. Vance's flawless performance pulls listeners into this mystery as it twists and turns through secret places across the planet. The complex events in this volume have a lot of backstory, so listeners are advised to start with Volume I. M.B.K. (c) AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine"
