Hounded. Haunted. Hunted. She is the most important person in the world. She is The Key. In the ancient Turkish city of Ruin, American journalist Liv Adamsen lies in an isolation ward staring at walls as blank as her memory. She knows she entered the monumental Citadel at the heart of Ruin but can remember only darkness. Something strange is stirring within her, whispering that she is 'the key'. But the key to what? For the Ghost, a mercenary operating in the Syrian Desert, Liv could unlock one of mankind's most potent secrets. For the brotherhood in the Citadel -- now cursed by a terrible plague -- her may be the only way to ensure their survival. And for a powerful faction in Rome, she threatens the very future of the Catholic Church. Hunted across continents and caught up in events that defy explanation, Liv turns to the only person she trusts -- a charity worker named Gabriel Mann. Together their paths lead to a shocking discovery -- one that will tear them apart and change the world forever!… (mais)

This is the second book in a series, and I feel that I am missing something for not having read the first book before this one. It doesn't explicitly require it, but I did get the strong feeling a lot of it would have made more sense. This might also explain why, despite decent character development, I failed to invest emotionally. I was along for the ride, but I really didn't care too much about the outcome. ( )

Amazing sequel to Sanctus. I thought it was every bit as good as the first book. At the beginning I got a bit bogged down with all the new characters introduced and trying to remember who was who but I settled into the story easily after than and thoroughly enjoyed it. I am eager to begin the third installment 'The Tower'. ( )

After the events of 'Sanctus', Liv wakes up in hospital. She hears voices inside her head whispering in ancient tongues. An earthquake hits Ruin and the monks of the Citadel start falling prey to mysterious disease. Soon Liv in on the run with the Catholic Church chasing her as well as the Sancti. Reunited with Gabriel Mann Liv must travel to a remote part of Northern Iraq to fulfil her destiny and save the world.

Written like that it sounds complete and utter hokum - which, to honest, The Key is. However a rapid pace and original thought make this series of books absolutely gripping and great, lightweight reading for a winter's afternoon. ( )

I love Toyne's Sancti series, in exactly the way that I do NOT like Brown's Da Vinci Code. it is a more than fitting sequel to Sanctus, which I also loved, and was the reason for me reading this book in the first place. Toyne has a very 'visual' rather than 'cerebral' way of writing, which draws the reader right into the action and tension of the story. This was a book that was hard to put down. The pace is fast, the plot imaginative, and even those moments that can be predicted, don't detract from the enjoyment and the thrilling climax. I will certainly be looking for the third book in the trilogy. ( )

Five Stars. A great follow-up to the first book in this intriguing debut trilogy by Simon Toyne. I look forward to reading the final part of the trilogy. ( )
