Book 2 of the Legacy Chronicles.
Hell has been unleashed into the world of men, we just don't know it yet. One man has unlocked the doors separating Earth from Hell, and now humanity will pay the ultimate price.
Unless Jacob Hope can save them.
The scars of the past rarely fade, but Jake has managed to heal many of his, knowing that to continue on his crusade he must enter the final battle as more than just a man, he needs to be a leader, a figurehead for all mankind.
Having managed a surprise victory over the immortal Abaddon, Jake sets forth to thwart the plans of the Fallen. His search leads him through exotic locations in a hunt for vital information to aid him in the final battle.
And yet information might prove to be his greatest enemy.
Dragged into Hell, Jake is confronted by Satan, who reveals a secret that devastates all Jake holds to be true. As Jake begins to lose control of the ever-darkening power contained within him, his confidence frays, and his search for answers becomes more and more desperate.
The Lord of Hell has claimed him as his son:
"Rarely can a sequel compete with the original... A taut thriller with the right mix of action sequences and suspenseful build-ups to move along quickly... My only disappointment was realizing I was at the end - can't wait for Book 3!" -- Adina
"I honestly don't know what genre to label his writing. He deserves a category of his own called...Just Read The Damn Book Because It's Good! " -- Christie C. Bilbo

For over two decades, Luke has worked in the security industry; from bouncing in some of Australia's roughest pubs and nightclubs to protecting Mickey Mouse and the Disney crew from the overzealous jaws of tenacious toddlers. He's been bodyguard for celebrities internationally and chased feral pigs and snakes from jungle sets on Steven Spielberg productions. Luke has traveled the globe and spent time in some of the most amazing locations the world has to offer.
This experience fuels the Australian writer's ever-expansive imagination, and he pours it into his novels, combining fact with fiction, history with fantasy, delivering engrossing action-thrillers which leave fans gasping for more. Luke's quick wit has seen his social media following explode, and he is currently one of the most prolific social media celebrities in Australia, with several hundred thousand followers across the internet.
Publishing his first book, The Dark Path, in 2009 saw it voted in the top 10 horror novels of that year, even though Luke denies ever intending the novel to be classed as horror.

The results are international bestsellers you're certain to love diving into.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
I bought this book in July and just now read it in Sept. I felt bad for not jumping right into it, but I wasn't quite ready for the heaviness that Mr. Romyn's books bring to the table. I'm not talking physical weight. I'm talking emotional, mental and just down right WTH is wrong with me!
I honestly don't know what genre to label his writing. He deserves a category of his own called...Just Read The Damn Book Because It's Good! Under amazon he is listed as thriller and horror. I've read horror and thriller, to me this isn't it. Let me just explain what I mean quickly:
We all know by now, Jake is the new Messiah. The only problem is...is he the real one? Satan has sent the Fallen out to destroy the Earth and Jake and all his allies. Jake still questions how he is to accomplish this monumental task with no direction. Jake learns he may or may not be the spawn of Satan.
I see why they label this horror...DEMONS. I also see where the terror comes to play...HELL and SATAN! You also have blood, guts, torture and death. Just your basic good all around bed time story. I personally love the authors sense of humor that is dribbled into the book. I personally think the character Vain, is the alter ego of Mr. Romyn.
I don't know why at the time I wrote my review, only 10 people have reviewed this book. More people should be reading his work. He is an outstanding author with a wonderful imagination. I'm looking forward to seeing how Jake and his Followers deal with Satan.
So, on to this one in particular. Earth is in great peril, the Antichrist has appeared and the gates of hell have been flung open. It is left for man to oppose the great deceiver and win the day. Heady stuff, occasionally offset by the author's trademark humor. Sins of the Father, the much awaited second volume in The Legacy Chronicles, was, in short, amazing. Imagine, if you will, a plot which involves matching wits with the Devil himself. Do you enjoy a book filled with intrigue? We follow along on the journey undertaken by Jacob Hope as he endeavors, as a mere mortal, to discern how he is to defeat the forces of hell which are allied against him. Sure, he has aid now and again from angels and he does possess some ethereal powers which he has yet to fully comprehend, but the task is, to say the least, daunting. One other source of assistance at various times comes in the person of Vain, an assassin with loyalties to no one, but who at least has no fondness for Satan. Although he is a minor player in the series so far, Vain is a complicated character and should you wish to know more of him do not hesitate to grab a copy of The Dark Path, which features him and describes his origins.
Another first-rate offering from Luke Romyn awaits you. Don't hesitate to get a copy!
For being only his second novel, he's won quite a number of awards -- all justified -- and I'm sure it won't be long before Luke Romyn gas moved from the NY Times New Author Best Seller list to the NY Times Top 10 Best Sellers. His writing is certainly worthy already!!!
I never could stand whiney characters especially when they stay that way throughout a series. It is one way to insure that I will not continue a book. But Luke has developed the characters and brought others in that keep the story going.
The arch has not been compromised once. Their have not been easy answers to tough decisions which when writing fiction some do. I love that Luke has kept this in the realm of plausibility. And of course I am reaching for the next book as well. Burning down the charge on my tablet quickly only cause I just don't want to stop. Thank you for sharing your talent with us. I look forward for more!!!

Having read it now I can tell you this is one awesome read. A follow up to Corpus Christi and a continuation of The Dark Path story catches up on Jacob Hope and his continued fight against the evil to end all evil, the Devil himself! Not wanting to give too much away you can expect nothing to be as it seems, friends come and go and bonds with the unexpected form to play out a story of biblical proportions.
As I have said before, Luke has an amazing way of capturing you and carrying you with his journey, I missed my bus stop twice on the way to work!! He can create a character that absorbs you, from our "hero" Jacob, to the dark Vain, to Abbadon the saved Fallen, to Aadesh who is not quite what he seems.
New figures emerge to help in the battle against the darkness, the lieutenants, and Jacob is thrown a curved ball about who he really is. Everything is at stake and the world is about to be plunged into chaos and darkness, the rise of a mirrored enemy is more than just a distraction from Jacobs ultimate goal and sometimes doing nothing gives you time to find out who you really are.
All in all this is a must read book and I for one cannot wait for the next instalment, I'm hooked!
Jacob Hope is the new messiah, the son of God, and he's on a mission to stop the End of Days but with Satan as a foe it's not exactly straightforward.
