From the award-winning author of The Memory Painter comes a sweeping and suspenseful tale of romance, fate, and fortune.
Semele Cavnow appraises antiquities for an exclusive Manhattan auction house, deciphering ancient texts—and when she discovers a manuscript written in the time of Cleopatra, she knows it will be the find of her career. Its author tells the story of a priceless tarot deck, now lost to history, but as Semele delves further, she realizes the manuscript is more than it seems. Both a memoir and a prophecy, it appears to be the work of a powerful seer, describing devastating wars and natural disasters in detail thousands of years before they occurred.
The more she reads, the more the manuscript begins to affect Semele’s life. But what happened to the tarot deck? As the mystery of her connection to its story deepens, Semele can’t shake the feeling that she’s being followed. Only one person can help her make sense of it all: her client, Theo Bossard. Yet Theo is arrogant and elusive, concealing secrets of his own, and there’s more to Semele’s desire to speak with him than she would like to admit. Can Semele even trust him?
The auction date is swiftly approaching, and someone wants to interfere—someone who knows the cards exist, and that the Bossard manuscript is tied to her. Semele realizes it’s up to her to stop them: the manuscript holds the key to a two-thousand-year-old secret, a secret someone will do anything to possess.
First time reading a book by this author. I’m truly impress on how she writes. I was pulled inside the pages with the first paragraph. This book reminded me a lot of Dan Brown. With similarities but is still the author’s own depth story.
I can’t wait to read more from her. And thank you for doing your homework with this story. It made it more special.
And THANK you for the price too!!!!
I couldn’t put this book down and ended up finishing it up in two days because it was so good!
