Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"This conspiracy tale has all the trimmings of a Dan Brown thriller, encompassing Mayan 2012 theories, feng shui, mystic runes, a secret society, and even a monkey that communicates through origami. The story is told by 16-year-old Caity Mac Fireland, a teen of the hyperarticulate, hypercool type, who interpolates her breathless narrative with e-mail exchanges, sketches (art not seen by PW), and research snippets. She's been uprooted from San Francisco to spend the summer exploring a Scottish castle that her parents are thinking about turning into an inn (oblivious to Caity discovering secret passageways, mysterious inscriptions, and a local hottie, Alex). This being the first book in a series (called Prophecy of Days), the scope of the mystery is not fully revealed, but it will come as no surprise that Caity is at the center of the hints she discovers. The story has an appealingly frenetic energy, but debut author Raedeke is so busy delivering information and surprises that there is little chance for suspense to build or for Caity to develop as a character. Ages 12 — up. (May)" Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

Can one (super smart) girl (who just wants to be discovered) decipher the cryptic Mayan calendar prophecy and SAVE THE WORLD?

When her safe-cracker mom and code-breaker dad inherit a dreary Scottish castle, sixteen-year-old Caity Mac Fireland is not happy. Ripped from her cushy life and friends in San Francisco, Caity's secret fantasy of being discovered by a Hollywood agent, talent scout, or even just a pageant coach seems more unlikely than ever.

But when Caity stumbles across a hidden room in the castle, its walls covered in strange symbols, her life takes a bizarre turn. She finds herself center stage in an international conspiracy involving warring secret societies, assassins, the suppressed revelations of the Mayan Calendar and the year 2012, plus the fate of humanity.

With the help of her friend Justine back home, and Alex, a gorgeous and mysterious Scottish boy, Caity must race to decipher the code and reveal its message to the world before time runs out.
