 Sanctus by Simon Toyne

This is a debut book by a British author, which I'm looking forward to reading.

The certainties of the modern world are about to be blown apart by a three thousand year-old conspiracy nurtured by blood and lies …
A man throws himself to his death from the oldest inhabited place on the face of the earth, a mountainous citadel in the historic Turkish city of Ruin. This is no ordinary suicide but a symbolic act. And thanks to the media, it is witnessed by the entire world.
But few understand it. For charity worker Kathryn Mann and a handful of others in the know, it is what they have been waiting for. The cowled and secretive fanatics that live in the Citadel suspect it could mean the end of everything they have built – and they will kill, torture and break every law to stop that. For Liv Adamsen, New York crime reporter, it begins the next stage of a journey into the heart of her own identity.
And at that journey's end lies a discovery that will change EVERYTHING …
SANCTUS is an apocalyptic conspiracy thriller like no other – it re-sets the bar for excitement and fascination, and marks the debut of a major talent in Simon Toyne.

 Funny Felt Farm Faces from Templar Publishing

This one is for our youngest reviewer, who's already had fun with it this week, both with help and without, so a review will be coming shortly.

I remember using Funny Felt on boards when I was younger!

I've bought a couple of books this week, although they haven't arrived yet so I'll include them in the relevant IMM when they arrive. 

This week I'll be having a dragon theme on my blog, as it's Dragon Festival time here in Norwich.  One of our city's mascots is Snap the dragon, who sits proudly in the Castle Museum.  He normally takes part in the Lord Mayor's Procession every year....I'm sure I have photos of Snap somewhere - anyway, dragons all week this week :)
