Présentation de l'éditeur

For fans of Dan Brown, Sam Bourne, Scott Mariani and John Lyman,

Book One of Two Parts: Please note that Book One continues seamlessly into and is concluded in Book Two. Trying Book One is an excellent way to get to know this exciting new author! Alternatively, readers are recommended to purchase the full omnibus edition containing both Book One and Book Two. Readers may now borrow Book One and/or Book Two free with Amazon Prime membership.
Crown of Thorns is a fictional thriller which takes place in the field of genetics and human cloning.

Hugely controversial, you will either love this book or hate it. Some will feel challenged and uncomfortable by the topic it deals with, and others will be drawn into it and unable to put it down... the question is, what will you think?

A young student at Oxford University has an idea for his doctor’s thesis (PhD), which fulfils not only the criteria for ‘originality’, but goes far beyond it. For if Jason Dyke is right, his idea will soon change the world and shift the delicate balance of power from one nation to another.

Jason’s idea is simple: In the genetics laboratory at Oxford University, he will clone Jesus Christ.

But when the CIA finds out about his plan, the President of America realises that if the UK succeeds, the balance of power will shift from the USA to Europe. And he realises that the only way to stop this happening is for America to create its very own clone of Jesus Christ.

The race is on...

Genetics is the future. In the coming years, or maybe even months, the single most important scientific development in the history of mankind will be the development of human cloning. This book is based upon a simple idea, which takes the inevitable science of human cloning, one step further.

What makes this book stand out from other novels that deal with a similar concept is the way the author makes the science seem plausible, by explaining simply what genetics is and how cloning works. By leading the reader through the latest advances in cloning techniques until even the impossible seems possible, the reader cannot help but get sucked into the story. Right to the very end the author successfully maintains the thrill of the ride, and manages to keep a surprise up his sleeve…

Whoever reads this book will never forget it. And they will ask….one of two questions:-

1: Is it really possible?

2: When will it happen?

Reviews from Amazon UK Omnibus Edition:

Five Stars: By B Baynes "Head Bookworm" (Worcestershire, England)
I just happened on this book while browsing through Amazon to find things to download to my Kindle. The premise of the book captured my interest so I duly downloaded it. And, I loved it! The story is utter nonsense, let's be honest - recreating Jesus Christ through cloning?! But, it is written in such an engaging manner that I found myself drawn in unwittingly. Mid-read, I actually broke my ankle and I found myself begging my family to bring my Kindle to the hospital so I could continue reading the book! I would recommend this highly to any one else, with the proviso that they suspend belief and read it for what it is - a truly interesting and captivating piece of fiction!

Five Stars: By Mr. A. Zabinec (Notts, UK)
Browsing the Kindle store for something to 'unwind' me, I chanced upon this excellent gem of a book. To my mind, the Author mirrors perfectly the Biblical events of Jesus' birth 2000 years ago and the subsequent 'Revelations' predicted for our time. The Characters are totally believable, able to deduce and thwart the plans of the Americans and British governments and to hide the true Messiah. A well thought out and researched book by the author, I was totally absorbed in it from start to finish. Believers & non believers alike will enjoy this thumping good read!!!

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Ugh, an interesting premise but poorly written 9 septembre 2012
Par D. Menning - Publié sur
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I liked the idea of this book (hmmm, I sound a bit like Nick Carraway in The Great Gatsby saying that Daisy wasn't truly in love but simply "liked the idea of Gatsby" ... or was it that Gatsby liked the idea of Daisy? Better read Gatsby again!); however, it is not pulled off well because of poor writing and unlikeable characters.

In terms of science, I had no trouble suspending disbelief. Yes, as the study of DNA and cloning advance, I imagine a blood stain on an inanimate object could provide the genetic/DNA seed for cloning. The concept of several governments racing to clone Jesus Christ is thought provoking as well--filled with "what if's."

Sadly, as much as I'd like to know how that scenario will playout, I don't think I could stomach another round of dreadful sex scenes laced with hypnotic mind control. None of the characters were fleshed out well enough for me to connect empathetically. They seemed robotic (but then, perhaps that's what happens when people run on "automatic" through hypnosis). When the professor has his "come to Jesus" moment, the book clunked from soft porn to sappy Christian fiction. Shudder.

Last, I know this is petty, but I thought I might scream and/or throw my Kindle across the room if the author used the word "whilst" one more time. I cannot recommend Crown of Thorns.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 a good read 2 septembre 2013
Par Charles Weatherstone - Publié sur

I did not realize when I got the first book that the story would be incomplete without book 2 - I assumed incorrectly that they were two complete stories, in which the second followed the first. Instead, they are each half of the story. That being said, I for the most part enjoyed the story, with a different take on "the second coming". It had multiple intertwining mini-stories which came together nicely. I personally did not appreciate the bad language or gratuitous sexual scenes - the story would have been just as good without this. Additionally, both books are in need of some minor editing for occasional grammar and spelling mistakes. Often, I found the word "of" printed instead of "off" for example. The editing could be cleaned up nicely by simply reading it through and making the changes. While not a book that I couldn't put down, it was interesting enough that I thought it worthwhile to purchase part 2 of the book.

I love reading new authors and I can tell within the first seven pages if I'm going to read the book or delete it from my Kindle. THE CROWN OF THORNS had me hooked fairly quick and it was definitely a page turner. Mixed with mystery, science, intrigue and piqued my interest and I couldn't put it down.

An ambitious PhD candidate Jason Dyke believes that he can clone Jesus Christ. Once the world hears about this theory scientist all over the world work to replicate their countries own version of Jesus Christ to maintain power. It is a fresh take on the second coming of Jesus Christ and leaves the reader wondering if in the future is cloning deities possible?
