I always enjoy a good thriller and I like it when there is just a touch of the supernatural woven en there. It wasn't hard to guess the supernatural part although Simon Toyne does not tell you straight from the start it is quite obvious.
The mystery around Solomon Creed is the part that had me hooked to the story. Simon Toyne has created a character without a background. I mean Solomon Creed does not even know who he is and we get to go with him in the search of well him.
The story is told from different points of view which makes sure you get the entire story from every side. There is no lack in action and this made sure I kept flipping the pages because I just did not get a moment to slow down.
I guess it is time to read Sanctus just to pass the time untill Solomon Creed will return. I am definately looking forward to reading it.
My rating: 4/5
The author of the acclaimed Sanctus trilogy conjures an eerie epic of good and evil, retribution and redemption—the first novel in the mesmerizing Solomon Creed series in which a man with no memory of his past must save a lost soul in a small Arizona town.
On a hilltop in the town of Redemption, Arizona, the townspeople gather at an old cemetery for the first time in decades to bury a local man. The somber occasion is suddenly disrupted by a thunderous explosion in the distant desert. A plane has crashed, and it’s pouring a pillar of black smoke into the air.
As Sheriff Garth Morgan speeds toward the crash, he nearly hits a tall, pale man running down the road, with no shoes on his feet and no memory of who he is or how he got there. The only clues to his identity are a label in his handmade suit jacket and a book that’s been inscribed to him: both giving the name Solomon Creed. When Morgan tells Solomon that he is in Redemption, Arizona, Solomon begins to believe he’s here for a reason—to save a man he has never met . . . the man who was buried that morning.
Miles away, three men scan the skies for an overdue plane carrying an important package. Spotting a black cloud in the distance, they suspect something has gone badly wrong, and that the man who has sent them will demand a heavy price if the package has been lost.
To uncover the secret of his identity, Solomon Creed must uncover Redemption’s secrets too and learn the truth behind the death of the man he is there to save. But there are those who will do anything to stop him, men prepared to call on the darkest forces to prevent Solomon from seeing the light.
