November 2008 Book of the Month.
Usually known for her books of spells and potions as a white witch, Titania Hardie has written a charming novel. A dual-time tale of a secret world of Shakespearean legacy and dangerous revelations. The book comes packed with clues and puzzles separate from the narrative to thoroughly involve the reader in the plot. Comparisons may be made to The Da Vinci Code but it really is quite different.
An enthralling novel of mystery and adventure Before his death in 1609, the brilliant Elizabethan spy and astrologer John Dee hid his most astonishing secrets, trusting his descendants would one day bring them to light. That time has come. In 2003, Will Stafford inherits a strange legacy from his mother: a key and an ancient script with an enigmatic note.
Intrigued, he travels Europe seeking answers to Dee's riddles, unaware that someone is following every move. Back in London, Lucy King becomes entangled in Will's cryptic labyrinth. As its mysterious twists take her from France to New York, and from literature to myth, in search of its hidden treasure, she has never been closer to the truth, nor in graver danger.
