THE WORLD AS WE KNOW IT IS IN PERIL – UNLESS ONE MAN CAN UNCOVER THE TRUTH...
A long-forgotten sect, a deadly brotherhood, a billionaire who trades in relics and a race across Europe in pursuit of a killer.
Jotham Fletcher is in Rome to give a lecture about Simon Magus at the church where he fell to his death beside the Roman Forum. Magus was a cult leader mentioned in the Bible and his libertine sect disappeared by 400 AD.
But did it really die out?
A robed man is pushed from the bell tower of the church at midnight and Jotham becomes the prime suspect. His lover Antonella, an expert on ancient documents, has a shocking secret. Rumours fly about a papyrus scroll. A ruthless Catholic Brotherhood will stop at nothing in their hunt for a hidden sect. And a reclusive billionaire has the chance of a lifetime to get his revenge.
Jotham is kidnapped, tortured and on the run. He races from Italy to England to Sweden. But the body count continues to rise and so does the heat in this non-stop thriller that will leave you breathless.
FEATURING: a fast-paced and gripping plot, chase sequences, Italian police, mysterious historical events and an ending that you won’t see coming.
Don't miss this action-packed thriller! Discover the secret that will change the world.
The Magus Covenant is the ideal read for fans that love books like The Da Vinci Code.
With sort chapters and quite a fast paced storyline, I flew through this book in no time at all.
I don't read many books like The Magus Covenant and to be honest I really don't know why as the whole church and religion storyline really fascinates me. The Roman catholic church for one has always been steeped in history with rumours and secrets that will always be something that intrigues many of us.
Jotham is on the run and you can really feel the adrenalin that is coursing through him and the constant mixture of emotions that he is experiencing. I enjoyed the closeness and relationship that he has with Antonella.
The Magus Covenant is a story steeped with lies and secrets. It's one of those story's where you become a bit like the main character and trust no one. There are certainly some twists that I didn't see coming that makes the novel even more enjoyable.
Many thanks to the author for a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
