Review

USA Today Bestselling Author

As Seen in The Wall Street Journal, The Chicago Tribune, and The Times!


"
A sadistically good writer."
- The Kindle Book Review

"Russell Blake writes with a brisk intensity and pulse-pounding power. Jump in and hang on for a nonstop thrill ride." - Scott Nicholson, Liquid Fear

"Blake at his best!" - Steven Konkoly, Black Flagged Redux, Black Flagged, The Jakarta Pandemic

"The Voynich Cypher is a fast-paced, intelligently written story with twists & turns that kept me up late at night turning pages. I was as hooked by this book as I was by the Da Vinci Code -- if you liked Da Vinci, The Voynich Cypher has the same flavor -- I urge you to pick it up. A must read for any suspense lover." Melissa Foster, bestselling author of Chasing Amanda, Megan's Way & Come Back to Me

"A taut roller-coaster ride featuring plenty of intrigue, suspense and mayhem; not to mention the kind of good-versus-evil conflicts that can only arise out of institutional religion gone bad. If you enjoyed The Da Vinci Code, this book's for you!" John L. Betcher, bestselling author of the James Becker Thriller Series

"The Voynich Cypher is a breakneck-paced thriller that will give fans of the likes of the Da Vinci Code a dose of Russell Blake speed, mixed with gut-twisting international intrigue & suspense."  David Lender, bestselling author of Vaccine Nation, Bull Street, The Gravy Train & Trojan Horse

For anyone who is a fan of Dan Brown like books, you will absolutely LOVE Rusell Blake's book. The lead character Dr. Steven Cross, is an amateur cryptographer who gets pulled into a quest surrounding a 15th century relic. The story is filled with suspense, code breaking, travel around the work with just right amount of violence and romance. This is one of the best code breaking books I have since reading Da Vinci Code. I have purchased the rest of Russell Blake's book and can't wait to read more. ABSOLUTELY Worth Your Time!

First i am not the kind of reader that picks apart grammer etc. I let the story come to me and take it in for what it is. That said i loved the story and the characters. Once i started i could not put it down and finished in two days of reading. This book is every bit as good as Dan Brown and comes close to Steve Berry in my opinion. So if you like this genre you will like this book. On to my third book King of Swords by Blake next.

OK, I admit it, I eat this stuff up--Dan Brown, National Treasure, that kind of thing. I'm not even really sure why, but it's my favorite kind of conspiracy--religion, treasure, mystery, cover-ups, traitors, hot pursuits. I could read that kind of book all day (sometimes I do!). This is a great example of the genre. Genuine mystery, enough research in there so you learn something and are convinced, and enough action and plot twists to keep it thrilling. Nothing extraneous in this story--if it's in the book, it's there for a reason. Classic Blake.

I had not previously read Russell Blake and found his novel The Voynich Cypher one that immediately caught my attention and literally pulled me through the book in a day of reading! I love fast, action-packed adventure. When you can't stop reading because you want to immediately know what is going to happen, then there is no hesitation in making it a must-read for action lovers like me...

But it was the story itself which drew me in. Yes, I love to read or watch movies about lost treasures... Do you? What I found quite thrilling was that the manuscript does exist and has yet to be deciphered. Will it be? Should it be?

What is intriguing is that, often, these hunts are for documents that have a religious origin and usually relates to something that should "never" be known by the entire world. Somehow that makes it more sinister to me--and I, along with many others, wonder what it is that must be hidden...

Dr. Stephen Cross had developed an interest in older documents, many of which had been coded for secrecy and he had become a cryptographer. Later after he had started his own computer business, he had created several programs that could be used in deciphering such documents. He had studied the Voynich manuscript and had become somewhat of an expert with what was available. In fact, he had a working theory on this obscure document which had been written entirely in code. It wasn't surprising then that Winston Twain, considered one of the most respected cryptologist in the world had contacted him in response to Cross' letter. Twain had been working on the same manuscript for the past 30 years, and was curious about what Dr. Cross had in mind, especially since he had himself rejected what Cross seemed to be working on...

I couldn't put this down once I started reading it. I loved the atmospheric opening in southern England, and from there on followed Steven and Natalie as they try to find out what led to her father's death.

They find out that there is much more at stake once the plot begins to unfold and have to keep one step ahead of several pursuers with a vested interest and cynical intent. Then we begin to realise exactly why the scroll was so important. The ending is very well set out, and dare I say, believable. One that I'll read again to see what clues I missed first time round. Very skilfully contrived: 10 stars.

Kept one guessing around each turn. If you liked Da Vinci Code, you'll enjoy this as well. Try it out.

Russell Blake's latest addition to his already outstanding arsenal, The Voynich Cypher, is just another testament to why he has become a favorite author of many. Each of his titles have been different in their subject matter, different in their plots, and different in their overall writing style. However, all of them have been stupendous in keeping you engaged, entertained, and in the end a little more educated. Blake is superb in his research and keeping the book realistic, while taking your mind on a journey through possibilities that most of us don't look for.

The Voyinch Cypher easily lives up to the standards Blake's previous books have created. In the spirit of titles such as The DaVinci Code and National Treasure, Blake takes us on a journey of what if. What if there are secret societies associated with the church? What if there are buried secrets out there that people in power didn't want getting out? What if people with money decided they want the power of these secrets?

Dr. Steven Cross soon finds out as an innocent letter he penned drags him into a life-altering adventure. "When a sacred relic is stolen from its subterranean guarded vault, Dr. Steven Cross, amateur cryptologist, becomes embroiled in a deadly quest to decipher one of history's most enigmatic documents - a 15th century parchment written entirely in unbreakable code; The Voynich Manuscript. Stalked by secret societies, and aided by the daughter of a murdered colleague, a trail of riddles catapults Cross from England to Italy to the Middle East, where a Byzantine web of ancient secrets leads him to a revelation so profound it will change the world order." (Author's synopsis).
