Praise for The Key…


“If you like your secrets deeply hidden and your action breakneck, then Toyne’s sophomore thriller is just the ticket. . . . As in his debut, Toyne delivers a gripping, intricate story of religious and political intrigue that’s sweeping yet somehow intimate and very personal. Wow.”
-Booklist (starred review) on The Key

“[Sanctus] might turn out to be the next great cliffhanger conspiracy thriller.”
-Fort Worth Star-Telegram on Sanctus

“Hard to think of it as a debut, better to think of it as the beginning of a massive new adventure, and a so-long to Dan Brown. . . .”
-The Daily Mirror (UK) on Sanctus

“When you read Sanctus, you’ll see just how frightening, ruthless and relentlessly entertaining an order of monks can be. Haunting in the best way.”
-Brad Meltzer, New York Times bestselling author of The Inner Circle

“Remarkable . . . Its ‘just one more page, one more chapter’ urgency keeps you reading into the night, and the final revelation of the Citadel’s secret is haunting.”
-Library Journal (starred review) on Sanctus

“In British author Toyne’s stellar first in a projected trilogy, a thriller in the Dan Brown tradition . . . The truly mind-boggling revelation will leave astounded readers eager for the next installment.”
-Publishers Weekly (starred review) on Sanctus

“Well-written, fast-paced and delivered with an admirable economy of words . . . an edge-of-the-seat story filled with action and adventure, as well as a puzzle that the main characters must somehow put together before the world simply disappears. . . . [A] taut thriller.”
-Kirkus Reviews on The Key
