Rusty’s Reading List 2019 | June 4, 2019

Sigh.
This is not the sort of book I would usually pick up. A number of years ago I was in an airport (I think), and needed a book. I bought Sanctus, by Simon Toyne. It was a sort of conspiracy thriller, built around the church, but a fictionalized version.
It wasn’t a ‘religious’ book.
Anyway, I enjoyed it more than I would have thought. Enough that when I realized it was going to be a trilogy, I casually watched for the second and third and picked them up.
This is the third.
I want my time reading them back.
A trilogy of conspiracy thrillers that led up a ridiculously cliche ending about a ‘second coming’ that changes the structure of the universe and somehow is going to make everyone stop fighting and love each other, or something like that.
Hey, I like fantasy and science fiction, but these books pretended to be something other than that.
At least it is clearly marked ‘fiction’.
