Publisher's Summary

At prestigious Oxford University, an American student searches for the truth about her mother's death in this eerie, suspenseful thriller that blends money, murder, and black magic.

You can't keep it from her forever. She needs to know the truth.

Cassandra Blackwell arrives in Oxford with one mission: to uncover the truth about her mother's dark past. Raised in America, with no idea that her mother had ever studied at the famed college, a mysterious package now sent her across the ocean, determined to unravel the secrets that her mother took to her grave.

Plunged into the glamorous, secretive life of Raleigh College, Cassie finds a world like no other: a world of ancient tradition, privilege - and murder. Beneath the hallowed halls of this storied university, there is a mysterious force at work...a dark society that is shaping our world and will stop at nothing to keep its grip on power. Cassie might be the only one who can stop them - but at what cost?

    Story
    "This book was so promising."

    This book held so much promise and was pretty enthralling for the first 2/3. Then it all spun out of control. The "twist" was absurd and ruined everything. It ended up being a chore to finish. I don't mind paranormal books but only when the author sows the seeds for it along the way and is upfront about what type of book it is. It felt like this author just decided to switch genres with only a third of the book left and without any paying any mind to the story they had formed thus far. It ended up being such a jarring change of pace that looking back it really feels like two different authors.

    "Has this author ever been to England?"

    I expect this inept book was assigned the reader it deserves. The narrator cannot reproduce any sort of authentic accent other than generic American and the writing is unconvincing.
