Hunted. Hounded. Haunted.She is the most important person in the world.She is the key

Journalist Liv Adamsen has escaped from the secretive Citadel in the ancient city of Ruin and now lies in isolation, staring at hospital walls as blank as her memory. Despite her inability to recall her past, something strange is stirring within her. She feels possessed by a sensation she can't name and plagued by whispers only she can hear: "KuShiKaam," the key.

At the center of events that defy explanation and hunted by someone she believes is trying to kill her, Liv turns to the only person she can trust--a foundation worker named Gabriel Mann. Together they must elude capture and journey to the place where all life began. From New York to Rome to the deserts of the Middle East, worlds collide in a race to uncover a revelation dating from the creation of man in this electrifying follow-up to the international bestseller Sanctus.

Review by Library Journal (2012-06-29)

A week has passed since a green-cassock ed monk plummeting from a mountaintop in Toyne's debut thriller Sanctus commenced a prophecy that throws the Vatican's Number Two man into panic mode. This sequel finds the Citadel monastery in ruins and the survivors of the previous ordeal dropping from Vatican-ordered hits. Journalist Liv Adamsen realizes that her involvement in the tumult is far from over as she regains her memories of the prior week.

How can she resume her mundane life when she senses she is somehow bound to the sacred? If Liv and co-protagonist Gabriel Mann can reach the wellspring of humanity before assassins find them, she and the Sacrament will be liberated, cataclysm prevented, and mankind saved.

Verdict: Equal parts religious artifact thriller and tale of palace intrigue, this dramatic follow-up to Sanctus will reward fans of the first book. However, new readers will struggle to follow the convoluted plot.
