Présentation de l'éditeur

Archeologist David Hyden is hell-bent to disprove his Biblical archeologist father’s religious theories. After his father is found dead at the center of Stonehenge with a strange glowing spiral engraved into his palm, David decides to challenge his father’s theory that Maeshowe—a passage grave ruin in Stenness, Scotland—possesses metaphysical powers. However, the morning after his arrival in Stenness, David wakes to find everyone else in town is dead.

NATO pathologist Brynne Thatcher is trained to recognize the subtle features of subsonic death, a unique forte and her only leg-up in a career dominated by men. Sound is the ideal weapon: an indiscriminate killer that leaves almost no trace upon its victims. She is testing an acoustic cannon in the grasslands a short distance from Stenness. Thatcher is certain her weapon caused the Stenness massacre, but all bets are off when she pinpoints Maeshowe as the source of deadly noise. The ruin erupts with low-frequency sound every 77 hours. Each explosion is larger and deadlier than the last. The only clues to stopping Maeshowe are the spiral petroglyph glowing inside its central chamber and the lone survivor, David.

Investigating the connection between the two glowing spiral symbols, Thatcher and David uncover Brenton’s most bizarre theory: There are four locks and four keys lost throughout antiquity. Any man who finds a matching lock and key will gain one of the powers of the Four Horsemen of Apocalypse (Conqueror, War, Plague, and Death). Displacement of a key awakened the passage grave. Unless the “key” is placed into the petroglyph “lock,” the ruin will kill every living thing.

Finding the key won’t be easy. A clandestine brotherhood known as the Abaddon is sworn to protect the keys. As Maeshowe’s eruption spreads across northern Europe, the leadership of the Abaddon crumbles. A new leader of the dark society seeks to become Conqueror, and a race to the Apocalypse begins.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 I want back the time I spent reading this unsatisfying, gory book 4 octobre 2013
Par Julia - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Yes, it's well written (tho plagued with typos). And yes, it's exciting. But the plot is terribly convoluted, and the author introduces tons of twists and turns that never get resolved. When I finished the book I was actually MAD at how unsatisfying the ending was, as well as all the unanswered questions that remained in my mind. I guess she's setting herself up for the next book in the series; but there's a big difference between a cliffhanger and total confusion.

It was really super gory, with graphic, oozing descriptions of eleven-teen different ways to torture flesh. I suppose that's a positive aspect of this book if you like that sort of thing, but I sure don't - blech!

I've read all this book's other reviews, and it sure looks to me like the first half - the 5-star reviews - are fakes that the author got her friends to submit; and the real reviews are the ones from my fellow 2- and 3-star reviewers. I say that because many of the things the 5-star reviews said about this book just aren't true, whereas the low reviews point out the legitimate flaws.

I advise this author to go back to the drawing board and significantly revise this book. It's a good start, especially for a first-time novel, but needs a LOT of work.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 So full of suspense we couldn't put it down! 16 juin 2013
Par Heather Smith - Publié sur Amazon.com

We purchased this book via amazon before we left on a road trip. We read 75% of it in two days. We couldn't put the book down! I narrated the book while my husband drove. We are so excited for the next book to come out! I am not much of a reader, but the suspense of the book kept me hooked. Waiting with anticipation in Seattle. =)

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Not in total agreement with others.... 29 août 2013
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com

I must admit that I liked the book. It has an interesting storyline and a reasonable presentation. But I wouldn't rate it as highly as some of the previous reviewers.

I'm always put off by little things... yeah, one of my many character flaws.

For example, the word BREAK is like a "coffee break". But when you want to stop a car, you're going to "BRAKE". Why do little things like that stick in my mind???

Another example would be wherever firearms details are given. One would be use of the word "clip." Technically it's a "magazine." There are several others.

But my biggest complaint would be how the book ended. Perhaps I missed something as I read the last few chapters in the middle of a sleepless night? I just didn't get the transition between "they're going to die!" and "all is good with the world again!"

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The best series start I've seen in years! 9 juin 2013

Madyson has written a book with a gripping plot. Tense and exciting action keep you turning the pages far after you should have gone to bed. The story has believable, extraordinary characters, but more than that, it has believable ordinary people doing their best in extraordinary circumstances. I am eagerly awaiting the next novel from Ms Rush.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Engaging and exciting 7 juillet 2013
Par Laura98092 - Publié sur Amazon.com

I usually read before going to sleep at night, but this book kept me awake. It is fast paced but with enough detail that I kept up with the story line, though there were some situations that were not fully resolved for me. Each chapter did switch between locations and characters so it is helpful to read the headings.

It was very impressive knowing that this is the author's first novel. I will definitely anticipate future works from this creative mind.
