  • Thirteen Hallows
    The Hallows. Ancient artifacts imbued with a primal and deadly power. But are they protectors of this world, or the keys to its destruction?

    A gruesome murder in London reveals a sinister plot to uncover a two-thousand-year-old secret.

    For decades, the Keepers guarded these Hallows, keeping them safe and hidden and apart from each other. But now the Keepers are being brutally murdered, their prizes stolen, the ancient objects bathed in their blood.

    Now, only a few remain.

    With her dying breath, one of the Keepers convinces Sarah Miller, a practical stranger, to deliver her Hallow—a broken sword with devastating powers—to her American nephew, Owen.

    The duo quickly become suspects in a series of murders as they are chased by both the police and the sadistic Dark Man and his nubile mistress.

    As Sarah and Owen search for the surviving Keepers, they unravel the deadly secret the Keepers were charged to protect. The mystery leads Sarah and Owen on a cat-and-mouse chase through England and Wales, and history itself, as they discover that the sword may be the only thing standing between the world … and a horror beyond imagining.

    The Thirteen Hallows is the beginning of a spellbinding new saga, a thrilling tale of ancient magic and modern times by a New York Times bestselling author and an award-winning playwright.


    I just found this book today. It is by one of my favorite authors Michael Scott, the author of the Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel series. This book looks so good I can not wait for it. =] It is kind of Harry Potter like but it is for adults. I really can't wait. =] Let me know in the comments what you are waiting for this week. =]





    Thanks for Visting and Happy Reading

    15. Hmmm... I haven't heard of this one... I wasn't the biggest fan of the Flamel series but maybe if Scott's writing for adults I'll like it better. Will have to look into it!
