In the third Cross book, the immortal angel killer Cross faces his most dangerous enemy yet: Noah. For ages Noah has sailed the seas, seeking out all of God's mistakes and imprisoning them on his ark. Noah is not humanity's saviour but is instead God's jailer. But he has grown increasingly mad over the centuries, and now he is determined to end the world by raising the mysterious Sunken City. Only one person can stop him: Cross.

The Apocalypse Ark is an epic chase around the world and through history and myth as Cross races to stop Noah from finding the Sunken City. He's joined by a few old friends, such as Alice from the Alice in Wonderland tales, and several new characters make memorable appearances as well: Captain Nemo and his crew of Atlanteans aboard the submarine the Nautilus; the sorcerous pirate Blackbeard, who has sworn revenge upon Cross; the devilish angel Sariel, whose sacred duty is to protect God's Bible; and the eerie and mysterious Ishmael, who may be the key to the world's salvation—or its damnation. Cross must find a way to bring them all together to stop Noah or the world will drown in madness.

Cross is a killer, a thief, a soldier and a drunk. He’s also an immortal soul with the powers of an angel, even though he’s fallen as hell.

And he may be the only one who can save the world.

This collection brings together the first three books of the Cross series. In The Mona Lisa Sacrifice, Cross has wandered the world for centuries, until he is drawn into a modern-day war between the angels over the fate of humanity. The Dead Hamlets finds Cross in a race against time to solve the mystery of why a strange and deadly ghost is haunting plays put on by the faerie court, before his eerie, undead daughter becomes the next victim. And The Apocalypse Ark sees Cross trying to make up for past sins by chasing down Noah, who has gone mad and sails the seas in search of the Sunken City, which he plans to raise in order to unleash the end of the world.

Cross is accompanied by a cast of characters as strange and fantastic as he is: the faerie queen Morgana; the quirky and unpredictable Alice, escapee of Wonderland; Captain Nemo and his crew of Atlanteans; a legion of angels who all have their own reasons to want Cross dead; and the ancient trickster god Judas, who is waging his own secret wars through the ages.

This collection includes two new stories never before published: “A Different Kind of Wolf,” and “The World Will Drown in Tears,” finding Cross caught up again in ancient struggles that only he seems destined to mitigate.

Read the Cross series today and find out why people are calling it “one of the strongest, and strangest, literary creations,” “deliriously unhinged” and “two-fisted, angel-punching action.”
