I remember reading the preceding book, End of Days , in a couple of sittings, and while reading Valley of Dry Bones , I almost missed my bus stop on two occasions because I was so engrossed. For me, it's the most interesting of the series, mixing Louisiana Voodoo, Catholicism, relics, bones, and all other dark things. I'd also love to see New Orleans so reading the book felt like I was actually there.
It's good to see Morgan and Jake back together and yet again, Penn doesn't hesitate to put the two of them through the wringer. I absolutely loved their latest adventure and can't wait to see what they get up to next. This series just gets better and better. Oct 20, Toni Osborne rated it it was amazing. Book 10, in the Arkane series Although this may be the 10th book in the series it can be read as a standalone.
We are given enough background information to situate us without being overloaded with too much detail. Penn knows how to introduce her story with an expert penmanship and superb imagination. This page-turning archaeological thriller explores at its fullest the two attributes the author is well-known to explore: the supernatural and occult. These two elements are blended into a Book 10, in the Arkane series Although this may be the 10th book in the series it can be read as a standalone.
These two elements are blended into a religious mystery with an action adventure that is captivating from the start. An ancient prophecy, an occult secret and the power to raise the dead is at the heart of this story. Voodoo symbols, secret society and a mystery that stretches to the Spanish Empire will have Jake Timber to New Orleans seeking for the Hand of Ezekiel but he will find out he is not the only one seeking the relics that can turn bones to living flesh.
Morgan Sierra also plays a good role and with Jake they bring us on a fantastic journey that spans continents in their quest for the relics. Action driven, this story is very visual and also quite graphic not a dull moment throughout. Penn does extensive research before she pens down a story and we see how her knowledge shines through her words once it comes to fruition. Once into her book you will be hooked.
The plot is superb and well executed, the narrative is rich and flows smoothly and finally the characterization is well- drawn and appealing. This is another success, well-done Ms. I received this ARC from the author for my honest and unbiased thoughts. View 2 comments. Oct 13, David Taylor rated it it was amazing. Morgan and Jake are back in pursuit of the Hand of Ezekiel.
As usual in the ARKANE stories the reader is hooked during the first paragraph and the line is reeled in until that last page when you are deposited back in the boat of reality.

Great Dark Arcane Thriller Adventure. The story makes me think of the James Rollins type of adventure but with more thriller-type aspects and a slightly darker tone. There is an aurora of Dan Brown type about the story too. Hand of Ezekiel Such a cool arcane object with biblical connections. I mean think about it. What if it were true? Read the bible scripture. I did. Ezekiel 37 - Vally of Dry Bones.
The thought gives me chills, BUT this a totally great Fictional story without any Author Opinion about this aspect at all. That was just My Own thinking. It is well-written, action packed, fast paced, involving a dangerous ancient religious relic, believable adversaries that threaten the main characters and the world. Yes, there is more than one adversary each with their own passionate agendas. We visit more than one location and one of my favorites to read about, New Orleans.
This is the 10th book in the Arcane series but does well as a standalone read too. The characters are reoccurring so if you want to know more about their personal stories and history be sure to read all the books. I volunteered to read an ARC of this book. This is my genuine opinion of it. Oct 22, HornFan2 Mike rated it it was amazing Shelves: favorites , suspense , favorite-author , thriller , action-adventure , paranormal , supernatural.

The Valley of Dry Bones
Absolutely addictive, J. Penn's writing style just sucks you in, your right their in the action, on the edge of the seat cheering that Morgan, Jake, Martin and the rest of the Arkane crew to defeat evil and it's a read that you don't want to see end. Her writing is I received a free advance copy from J. Her writing is so well researched, like all the historical sites she adds into the storyline, can she ever add all the right elements to make her story that much better and what an imagination she has.
With the Valley of Dry Bones, you have two intertwining storylines that beautifully meshes into one storyline, felt Penn told what could have been a complex story into a simply told imaginative read, overloaded with twist and turns, seasoned perfectly with suspense and so glad she didn't write Morgan Sierra out of the series. Jake is Jake, Naomi's a great edition, but once Morgan gets into the storyline, she and Jake just click and just makes the storyline work perfectly.
I don't read a lot of books in the supernatural genre, but absolutely love how J. Penn mixes historical sites into her Arkane Series books, that alone makes it worth while to read, you always learn something new and highly recommend. Oct 12, Denise rated it it was amazing Shelves: action.

I have not read many of the books in this series yet but that didn't really matter as it stands alone. It contains all the elements is a good action adventure, "good" guys, "bad" guys, something being sought that is not easy to find and that somebody doesn't want you to get before them. Throw in New Orleans, voodoo, and a secret society formed to protect relics, and you have everything you need for a great reading experience. Though they were like "dem dry bones," he would soon reassemble them and breathe his life into them.
To the Israelites the Lord promised, "I will put my breath [ ruach ] in you, and you will live" It's not hard to see why this imagery resonated with slaves in America who expressed their hopes through the spiritual "Dem Bones. It reveals a God who brings the dead to life, who can make whole that which is beyond healing.
