      Two murders, one in Rome and one in Jerusalem brings detective Antoine Marcas and special agent Jade Zewenski, the head of security of the embassy in Rome together. Jade's friend Sophie is killed by three blows to her upper body. Her shoulder, her neck and her head. In the same day a man is killed in the same way in Jerusalem.Zewinski is in no way pleased about working on the case with Marcas. She doesn't like anything that has to do with Freemason and Marcas is a member of the group. But as the [...]

      I liked this enough to translate it into English. I had the honor of working with the French authors to pare it down and adapt this first-in-series, making the adventure very exciting. I liked the action, the premise and the characters. Some favorite details: Inspector Antoine Marcas's total disregard for any mention of the Templars, the character Jade as a whole, the discussion about Le Procope, the final climatic scene (for the setting as much as anything else), and the bits and pieces of real [...]

      ‘Designed to last a thousand years, the bunker’s foundations were showing signs of weakness.’Two slayings - one in Rome and the other in Jerusalem - rekindle an ancient rivalry between two separate secret societies. The two are in competition for information lost when the Third Reich fell, and will do whatever it takes to achieve their objectives.‘There was no longer any room for doubt.

      Nazis, Freemasons, secret societies and mystic symbols abound in this book. It took a while for me to get into the story because there were just so many threads but once it started to weave together, it was a beautiful tapestry.Two ritualistic murders bring our hero and heroine together. Since they immediately despise each other, you know sparks will fly. She is the head of Security in the French Embassy where one of her childhood friends is murdered. He is brought on board as a policeman as muc [...]

      Chaos reins in Berlin as Russian forces near the city.The SS's convoy carrying plunder occupied countries is stopped except for lead vehicle. Present day in the French Embassy in Rone MURDERs and in Jerusalem occur. They are similar as both were kill by 3 strikes, one to shoulder, next to the neck and finnally a blow to head. This a thriller with good information about World War Two and Freemasons. Why the method of killing?The ending is a suprise.This book was translated from French into Englis [...]

      Thanks to the Author Eric Giancometti and Jacques Ravenne, Publisher Le French Book and NetGalley for providing me with an Advanced Copy of the book for review purposes. I in no way make any profit from my reviews and all the opinions expressed in this review are 100% mine and genuine. I quote this from the publisher "When this book was first released in France, it sold 250,000 copies and was translated into 17 languages. Now it is finally in English. The nine-book series has gone on to sell 2 [...]

      "Flesh falls from the bones"SHADOW RITUAL is an action-packed thriller that follows two separate secret societies - the Freemasons and the Thule - on a deadly quest. The book started out a bit slow for me but was soon barreling along non-stop, alternating between societies. A lot of history was included in this tale and it was interesting to me especially to see where the Freemasons began.The synopsis of the book on says this is actually based on a true story. Hmmems farfetched to me but then t [...]

      Tightly written thriller. Marcas is a Freemason and a cop. He is to help investigate a murder that happened in the French embassy in Rome which has Freemason ties. His partner for the case, Jade, has no use for Masons so he has an uphill battle dealing with her. She comes to rely on him as the case proceeds. I loved this! I was on the edge of my seat throughout the book. It was a page turner. The characters are good. Marcas and Jade are fun to watch. I liked that Marcas explained different Mason [...]

    12. Mike Dishmon on said:

      I came across this book by chance, and am glad I did. I loved this from page one. Characters are sharp and real, tale reads well, no long drawn out sections that lag the flow. I do not want to give too much away, but I would highly recommend this one to anyone who likes a good thriller loaded with mystery and suspense.

      Originally published at Reading RealityThis is the second book in the series featuring Antoine Marcas, and based on this entry in the series, I hope that the publisher gets the rest of the series translated tout de suite. Meaning, as fast as the translator Anne Trager can get them out.Shadow Ritual is edge-of-the-seat thrilling, very much in the vein of The Da Vinci Code but with much better editing. The pace is taut, and the story, even the parts about rituals and history and the secret society [...]

      J'ai du mal à savoir si j'ai aimé ou non en fait ça se laisse lire et l'intrigue est assez prenante, mais en même temps je n'ai pas vraiment accroché. Je ne suis pas sûre de lire la suite même si je ne regrette pas d'avoir lu ce premier tome pour découvrir le polar ésotérique.

      Starting with a prologue in which François Le Guermand, originally from France, and now an SS officer is inducted into the rites of the Black Order, Thule, and includes an all too familiar incident of Nazi looting and finishes with the curious ritual murder of a delirious prisoner in Dachau, Shadow Ritual is a book filled with diverse secret orders, grizzly deaths and a thrilling hunt through Europe, the Middle East and France to prevent an ancient and powerful secret from falling into the hand [...]

      Another good find from NetGalley, this book piqued my interest from its synopsis. I'm a sucker for symbols, mysteries and adventure. This book had all of that and more. There were quite a few twists and turns that I didn't expect and some that I knew were coming from having read other similar stories in the past. However, this book did a good job of stepping down other avenues while retelling familiar tales. It was refreshing to have another element added to the usual mystery or suspense type no [...]

      Tout d’abord, il faut savoir que ce roman a été rédigé par un duo improbable composé d’un maître franc-maçon - Jacques Ravenne - (c’est un pseudonyme) et d’un journaliste ayant enquêté sur les dérives liés à l’ordre - Eric Giacometti -. Le rituel de l’ombre est le premier opus d’une série mettant en scène le personnage récurrent du commissaire Antoine Marcas. Ce commissaire, comme vous devez vous en douter, est lié de très près à la franc-maçonnerie. Il a été [...]

      Boring!If I never hear the word freemason it will be too soon. It was just one LONG description about how wonderful they are.

      “Shadow Ritual” was published in 2015 (March) and was written by Eric Giacometti and Jacques Ravenne. This is their first english language publication, though they have published more extensively in Europe. I obtained a galley of this novel for review through netgalley. I would categorize this novel as ‘R’ as there are instances of Violence and Mature Language. This Thriller novel is set in contemporary times and takes place primarily in France. The primary characters are Antoine Marcas, [...]

      Je commence la saga avec le commissaire Antoine Marcas. Depuis que j'ai rencontré Jacques Ravenne au Livre sur les quais, je dois dire que je rêvais de me lancer dans Le Rituel de l'ombre. C'est chose faite.Il s'agit donc du premier tome de la saga, et je suppose qu'à cet effet, il sert d'introduction au monde de la franc-maçonnerie, puisque le commissaire Marcas est lui-même franc-maçon. La profane que je suis a été ravie de pouvoir passer les portes du temple et d'observer une initiati [...]

      This thriller engages you from the first page, it's really hard to put it down: it's full of action, twists and unsolved mysteries, three spectacular places such as Rome, Jerusalem and Berlin where everything takes place, and let's not forget the main characters, a French detective really good and a brave girl. It 's a really intriguing mystery to solve: two murders, a Masonic sect and a secret society who seek to dominate the world.The secret society Thule had tried to dominate the world with H [...]

    25. Joanne on said:

      An interesting premise and for the most part a fun read. The author does well for keeping the reader turning the pages. However the plot is somewhat fantastic and over the top which detracts. By the end of the book, while I found an interesting read, I couldn't help but roll my eyes at how things had developed.

    26. Merenda on said:

      I was given this book as a giveaway winner for MY personal opinion and review of it. And that is what I have left here. This book is a full of action thrill ride! Mystery, dripping in hearty suspense offerings. It offers intrigue and fast paced action to keep the story flowing like a river cascading down a mountainous terrain. There are crossing of Nations and locations. Mystery unfolding at each to take you to the next piece of the puzzle. The easiest way to describe it would be Dan Browns Da [...]

      Nous voilà plongé dans la franc-maçonnerie de nos jours, nous avons donc, un roman quelque peu ésotérique comme on pourrait le dire des livres de Dan Brown, en légèrement moins bine tout de même. Nous suivons tous les protagonistes de l'histoire qu'il soit "méchant" ou "gentil" et certains nous surprennent ou pas mais le fait d'être dans la tête de chacun, nous donne une autre dimension du roman, pour notre plus grand plaisir. Par contre, j'ai trouvé qu'il état vraiment long à comm [...]

      IntenseTwo very different secret societies drive the plot of The Shadow Ritual.French police officer Antoine Marcas, who is also a Freemason, is investigating a murder at the French embassy in Rome. The cause of death is three blows. One blow to the shoulder blade, one to the back of the neck, and a finishing blow to the forehead. On the surface, the attack does not seem in any way special, but Marcas know differently. This is the exact way the founder of The Freemasons was murdered 1500 years a [...]
