More About the Author

Bodie and Brock Thoene (pronounced "Tay-nee") have written over 45 works of historical fiction. That these best sellers have sold more than 10 million copies and won 8 ECPA Gold Medallion Awards affirms what millions of readers have already discovered--the Thoenes are not only master stylists but also experts at capturing readers' minds and hearts.

In their timeless classic series about Israel (The Zion Chronicles, The Zion Covenant, and The Zion Legacy), the Thoenes' love for both story and research shines.

With The Shiloh Legacy series and "Shiloh Autumn"--poignant portrayals of the American Depression--and The Galway Chronicles, which dramatically tell of the 1840s famine in Ireland, as well as the 12 books in the Legends of the West series, the Thoenes have made their mark in modern history.

In the A.D. Chronicles, their most recent series, they step seamlessly into the world of Yerushalayim and Rome, in the days when Yeshua walked the earth and transformed lives with His touch.

In a country that is consistently plagued with questions over media cover-ups and governmental conspiracies, this book takes the reader to the edge of their comfort level. The authors have taken a vast series of facts, and interweaved them in such a way as to make a full blown conspiratal cover-up look like reality. Many of the "steps" that were taken in the book were ones that have been taken in reality here in the United States; in and of themselves, they mean little, however, as the author compiles them into a timeline of intention, those steps can be seen in a new and insidious light.
It was a very enjoyable read; one that gives you that creepy feeling at the end... given a brief study of history, one can see that many of the "big" events in history were predicated on a series of small events that most people ignored, especially those that have been "comfortable." The Thoene's have done a wonderful job of directing the readers attention to that problem, and in effect, given them a challenge to step outside and look at what is going on in the world today.

Fast read, intriguing, spellbinding
Is this a book or am I reading the newspaper?
How will the book end? How will current events continue???
Read it and consider.

I first bought this book when it was being released by chapters! I could not believe it was fiction! I truly enjoyed reading this book. The suspense is incredible, the story is so life like you have to remind yourself that it's fiction. More importantly, you really relate to the characters. This book motivates you to pray for your country. The author's go into incredible depth and details with each character and their situation. While I had the chapters already on my Kindle, I also bought the ebook in it's complete form. ICON would make an excellent Book Club selection for any book club. If you desire a political thriller, with action packed story lines and characters that you can relate to, cheer for, and care about, GET THIS BOOK!!! You won't regret it. . . or be able to put it down! (The same is true for all the books by these authors!)

A political thriller that is scary because it is like a walk through the headlines! It is fast paced and hard to put down! The whole time I was reading it I wondered, is this really fiction??? Bodie Thoene is my favorite author!! Everything she writes is a winner!!

I read this book the hard way Chapter by Chapter as it came out. I cannot wait until the sequel EFFIGY comes out.
I am so glad this is on Amazon as ..I DO NOT CARE who doesn't like a subject. IT SHOULD BE HERE.
There is certainly a lot on Amazon I totally dislike..BUT it IS touted by the elite and so has its place.

I commend Amazon on ICON's availability finally of this whole book and its many other Christian titles.

It has been so long since I have spent all of my spare time reading a book, but this book is a real page turner - or should I say scroller. It is easy to read, suspenseful, and pertinent to current events. The nature of it cautions you to beware and be alert. A timely cautionary tale. Thanks to the authors, Brock and Bodie Thoene for this exciting thriller.
