“A talented new writer who instinctively grasps the broad rules of superior action thrillers and adapts them with pace, grace, humor, and a keen eye for cinematic effect.”

Daily Telegraph (London)

“Toyne’s writing is stellar and downright fun. Get your Dan Brown game face on and step into the temple of Simon Toyne.”

Madison County Herald

Simon Toyne’s breathtaking international bestseller, Sanctus, had critics everywhere cheering, calling the author the new Dan Brown (The Da Vinci Code) or Steve Berry (The Jefferson Key), while praising Toyne’s debut thriller as “remarkable,” “thrilling,” “provocative,” “haunting,” and  “spectacular.” The adventure continues with The Key, returning readers to the dark world of a sinister religious order older than Christianity and their Vatican-like secret citadel high in the Turkish mountains—as one courageous woman must fulfill an enigmatic prophecy that could determine the ultimate fate of humankind. James Rollins, Raymond Khoury, and Chris Kuzneski fans will not want to miss this one.

    " cant wait for the final book "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jess | 1/23/2014

    " Definitely a page turner but I was torn whether to give it 3 stars or 4 (if there was a 3.5 option that would have been my choice). I loved the first book "Sanctus" but felt this one didn't quite live up to the excitement I received from the first. Mainly due to the fact the pinnicle of the story seemed under described and rushed after such an extensive build up. Nonetheless I enjoyed reading it and didn't want to put it down. "

    " The follow up to Sanctus, second in a pending trilogy. I listened to Sanctus and read The Key. Both are excellent...in my opinion. If you liked the DaVinci Code, read these. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stephen | 1/9/2014

    " just as good as the first! Can't wait for the third! The whole book just flows until the last 75 pages then you cna't put it down!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Antoinette | 1/8/2014

    " I took too long to read it and lost the thread, another book about Catholics hiding something sacred. It is OK, but very far fetched, Christians would be quite offended by it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Pamela | 1/8/2014

    " The book was amazing. I love it. I like the way there's less description and more action, and that the characters are formed by the things they do and the choices they make rather than the color of their hair or the historicity of their surroundings. I like the moral conundrum that no matter whether they seem to us to be the good guys or the bad guys, they believe that they are doing what is right, what God is calling them to do. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah | 12/29/2013

    " Not quite as good as Sanctus but still enjoyable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karen | 12/7/2013

    " I like Simon Toyne's style of writing with short chapters. It really enhanced the fast pace of the book. If I could read all books as quickly as I read this, I'd be able to complete my "to read" list in no time. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amelia | 11/29/2013
