The prophecy in Revelation declares that a quarter of the world must die and now a shadowy organization has the ability to fulfill these words. Can one woman stop the abomination before it's too late?
Israel: A victim of Jerusalem Syndrome jumps to his death from the top of the Western Wall, his body smashed on the ancient stones. Another disembowels himself under the scrawled figure of the Pale Horse of the Apocalypse with the chilling words, "God told me to do it."
Dr. Morgan Sierra, specialist in psychology of religion, travels to Israel to investigate the deaths and becomes embroiled in an international conspiracy that will use cutting-edge technology to carry an ancient curse to mankind. She joins agent Jake Timber at ARKANE, a secret government agency investigating the supernatural and together they hunt down the Devil's Bible, pursued all the way by the evil forces of Thanatos.
From the catacombs of Paris to the skeletal ossuaries of Sicily and the Czech Republic, Morgan and Jake must find the Devil's Bible and stop the curse being released into the world before one in four are destroyed in the coming holocaust. Because in just seven days, the final curse will be spoken and the prophecy will be fulfilled.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. For me, it's better than Pentecost, the first in the series, but like Pentecost, towards the end I was loathe to put it down.
It's full of action and adventure but has a slightly different feel to the previous one, though I can't quite explain why. If you like fast-paced thrillers and don't object to supernatural occurrences, you'll enjoy this.
Yes, an exceptional story that not only entertains but makes you think, "what if?"
Not to compare Prophecy with the Bible but a lot of quotes come from Revelations
Near the end where the heroine is flying through the air holding onto a chandelier composed of bones
The villain wanted to get rid of one quarter of the population so he could control the future of the human race
A wonderful book brought to life by a very talented narrator. J.F.Penn is an expert on all types of ancient religions and brings this knowledge to the ARKANE thrillers
The second book is as good as the first. The story line is very interesting and fast paced. Morgan and Jake find themselves in another exciting adventure and not much time to save the world. Highly enjoyable, Looking forward to #3.
"Tense and exotic religious thriller"
having not read the print version i assume most audiobooks much more engrossing and this was no exception.
Morgan. A great female protagonist with surprising skills wrapped up in a decent moral character.
immersion was key in this audiobook and Veronica brought the story to life.
very tense moments throughout kept me engrossed until the end always rooting for the goody characters.
A Gripping story line, once more bringing back the main characters from Pentecost to solve another religious mystery and moral dilemma for Arcane. A fantastic continuation from the first book in the series Pentecost and places the main protagonist Morgan in situations and places more exotic each time. Tense and suspenseful I found the story full of diverse characters, good and bad, each with their own moral guidelines for life which clashes in moments throughout the book. Deeply enjoyed reading and looking forward to the next in the series.
