Summary of the Book:

When a stranger gives Analiese Jordan a list of names before he dies, the last thing she expects to see is her own on it. Not. Cool. Her search for answers leads to the man’s grandson, Marek, who has dangerous secrets of his own. Both are determined to unlock the mystery of the list.

But the truth is deadly. Analiese is a descendant of the God of Death, known as a Riser, with the power to raise the dead and control them. Finding out she has hidden powers? Cool. Finding out she turns corpses into killers? No, thank you.

Now the trail plants her and Marek in the middle of a war between gods who apparently want to raise an army of the Risen, and Analiese must figure out how to save the world—from herself.

My Personal Review: I received a copy of this book for a fair and honest review. I actually got a paperback copy of this book from the publisher. This book had me because it was the mythology, the gods and goddesses, the puzzles and the mystery that just pulled me in. I like Analiese and Merak they were crazy and lively characters. They are brought together by an accident and a leather bag and a list of names that does include Analiese herself. They have to travel to Rome during their adventure. I got a kick out of them trying to figure out who to trust and who not too. I need to read more by this author. I have heard good things. I got a National Treasure or Da Vinci Code vibe from this book.

My Rating of the Book: 4 Stars
