“I am become Death, destroyer of worlds.” — Bhagavad Gita
London. A street cleaner walks into the middle of Trafalgar Square and blows himself up. No mere act of terrorism. The explosion rips open a crater to reveal the underground headquarters of ARKANE — the ultra-secret British agency tasked with investigating the supernatural.
Within moments, armed commandos rappel into the breach, blow open ARKANE’s vault, and steal a single box containing an ancient relic linked to the Indian god Shiva.
By the time ARKANE’s best agents, Morgan Sierra and Jake Timber, arrive on the scene, it’s over. All they have is some video, a few thin leads, and the whispered words, “Don’t let the pieces come together.”
Soon, Morgan and Jake will find themselves on a quest unlike any they’ve experienced yet . Racing from the slums of Mumbai to the temples of Kolkata, from the unmarked graves in the killing fields in Rwanda to the most famous tomb of all — the Taj Majal. On the run from a mad scientist who wants to use ancient Indian relics to rewrite the genetic code of every human alive. In search of a threat woven into the very fabric of existence.
They’ve faced danger before, but never like this. Because in a place beyond madness, all that remains is Death, the Destroyer of Worlds.
New York Times and USA Today bestselling author J.F. Penn brings you her biggest thrill-ride yet in her eighth ARKANE adventure… Get your copy of Destroyer of Worlds and see if you can solve the mystery first!
“This book will grab you from the first page and not let go.” – David C. Taylor
“Another great book by J F Penn. Her research and attention to detail is nothing but amazing. She keeps you spellbound from start to finish.” – Gail
“J.F. Penn could have been an awesome history teacher! This story grabbed me right from the start and hurled me through the pages. I have to admit that I read it over a two day period as I couldn’t wait to see what happened next. Nor could I wait to learn more about the religion, the country and the history of India.” – Beth Farrar
“Another great book always looking forward to the next one. Read it in one night couldn't put it down. Suspenseful.” – Debbie Harris
“The reader is (willingly) taken on a non-stop rollercoaster ride, with Morgan and Jake, to stop those who would let loose the forces of evil. On this journey you learn more about the characters themselves, but also of other people's culture, myths and religion.The reader is right there, experiencing everything. You can smell the spices, the sweat mixed with animal and human blood. Feel the heat, the unwashed bodies as they pass you by. See the sights, the blinding colours of the saris mixed with the blazing sunshine. All made possible via Penn's very descriptive words. This is very well written, in my opinion, it's the best ARKANE novel (so far). Superb!” – Kay Smillie
