"A mix of history, art and science, with a touch of creative license, to present an intriguing tale that I didn’t want to put down. I have thoroughly enjoyed the series so far, and am eager to read the entire series."5 star Amazon review
"This action packed, eerie thriller takes you through dusty museums crammed with Egyptian artifacts, into the hallowed halls of Masonic Lodges where secrets silently lay and to the great Temples themselves to witness horrifyingly real ceremonies."5 star Amazon review
"The cool thing about Penn's books, she adds so much historical detail, it makes me want to look these things up for myself . . . This book was no different. Between Egypt, the Ark of the Covenant and biblical tales, mixed up in the present day politics of the region . . . it made for quite the adrenaline rush. I totally recommend these books."5 star Amazon review
"The action starts immediately. And, it never stops, which I loved ...Ark of Blood is just as well-written as the first two books in the series, with vivid descriptions of people, places, and ideas ... I’ve been left with two desires at the end of this book: one, to learn more about the Ark of the Covenant and the theories about if and where it exists, and two, to read the next book in the series! Good work, JF Penn!"5 star Amazon review
In the ARKANE thriller series ...
ARKANE agents Morgan Sierra and Jake Timber race against time to solve religious and supernatural mysteries around the world.
They're joined by other members of the ARKANE team as they search for clues and battle foes both human and supernatural along the way.
Described by fans as "Dan Brown meets Lara Croft," and perfect for fans of James Rollins or Steve Berry.
Exquisite world building – one feels like one is where Morgan and the others are at any given time.
Loads of violence, fire and explosions – just like I like it!
Natasha is completely off her rocker and it makes her an unpredictable villain. Could have done without her ritualistic rape and murder of an unknown man while high on drugs…
A thrilling adventure with religious and historic facts woven throughout.
I can’t believe the stuff Morgan is able to survive – she’s amazing.
A fun read.
