In Shawna Ryan's Thrillers, the Church is embroiled in murder, its past and present colliding in earthly hells.
“Interweaving 1850s Utah with various present-day locales, this sequel continues the bloody back story of religious extremists as they battle to create the 21st century’s “perfect” race. Combining all the tropes of mainstream action-adventure, this book delivers a bloody fusillade of murder, betrayal, historically rooted agendas, and contemporary political corruption. Part Clive Cussler, part Michael Crichton, with just a dash of Thomas Harris….”– Kirkus Reviews
The Kingdom is a chilling and riveting account of the early days of the Mormon Church, with glimpses into disturbing present day activities. From customer review.
Kingdom is a descriptive, haunting historical novel combined with a modern day mystery that one will not soon forget. Character development is particularly strong - helping the reader to understand the conflicts of morality that the converts encounter.From customer review.
DESTINY'S DAMNED Trilogy:
The Destiny's Damned series by Shawna Ryan is an outstanding trilogy - shocking and fast-paced, full of interesting characters, twists, turns and surprises. I highly recommend it. DOUGLAS PRESTON, best selling thriller author.
The novel has a kind of cinematic quality as the story unfolds, and the pacing is such, that readers will find the novel a quick page turner! By Patricia Harrington, Mystery author.
Everything is kept tight and intact in this story, as multiple story lines unfold in each chapter and allow the entire work to come together in a climax that will have readers scrambling for the third installment in the series. By ForeWord Clarion Reviews.
TRIUMVIRATE OF THE DAMNED:
Shawna Ryan expertly juxtaposes the supernatural genre with historical fiction in the concluding volume of her Destiny’s Damned trilogy. Triumvirate of the Damned is a multi- layered story that surpasses the predictable formulaic religious conspiracy thrillers that currently glut the market. The premise behind her novel is unique and the characterization is excellent. By ForeWord Clarion Reviews
