Publisher's Description:

Blaine McCracken races to stop terrorists from unleashing an ancient weapon of unimaginable power at the president’s State of the Union speech.

Blaine McCracken pulled off the impossible on a mission in Iran, but his work has just begun. Returning to the US, he faces another terrible threat in the form of Reverend Jeremiah Rule, whose hateful rhetoric has inflamed half the world, resulting in a series of devastating terrorist attacks. But Rule isn’t acting alone. A shadowy cabal is pulling his strings, unaware that they are creating a monster who will soon spin free of their control.

Finding himself a wanted man, McCracken must draw on skills and allies both old and new to get to the heart of a plot aimed at unleashing no less than the tenth circle of hell. A desperate chase takes him into the past, where the answers he needs are hidden amid two of history’s greatest puzzles: the lost colony of Roanoke and the Mary Celeste. As the clock ticks down to an unthinkable maelstrom, McCracken and his trusty sidekick, Johnny War Eagle, must save the United States from a war the country didn’t know it was fighting, and that it may well lose.


Having never read Jon Land's book - including any previous Blaine McCracken books, I was wary at being able to pick where the previous book ended.  NO FEAR!  I was pulled into the mystery and suspense of the novel from the opening pages.

The fast-paced action thriller kept me engaged and wanting more!  Jon Land has written a storyline that could easily be in the New York Times tomorrow.... except for the mystery surrounding the Roanoke Colony.  That is still a mystery!  I love when a writer spins a story from true historical times and characters.  It makes the story come to life.

I look forward to reading other Blaine McCracken novels!  If they are half as good at The Tenth Circle, I'm in for a real treat!

I received a complimentary copy of The Tenth Circle from Open Road Integrated Media and NetGalley for my honest review.

Please note that this is NOT a Christian writer or publisher.  This is a secular book which contains expletives and swearwords.
