    I discovered “Sanctus” because “Toyne” was very near Brad “Thor” on the Library book shelf. I had never heard of Simon Toyne, at the time he only had the first two books of the Trilogy published. Boy, was I glad I found this Series ….I had to impatiently wait until the last one came out. You never know when you will discover another great writer.
