Author: Page Morgan
Publisher: Random House (Delacorte)
Released: 14th May 2013
After a bizarre accident, Ingrid Waverly is forced to leave London with her mother and younger sister, Gabby, trading a world full of fancy dresses and society events for the unfamiliar city of Paris.
In Paris there are no grand balls or glittering parties, and, disturbingly, the house Ingrid’s twin brother, Grayson, found for them isn’t a house at all. It’s an abandoned abbey, its roof lined with stone gargoyles that could almost be mistaken for living, breathing creatures.
And Grayson has gone missing.
No one seems to know of his whereabouts but Luc, a devastatingly handsome servant at their new home.
Ingrid is sure her twin isn’t dead—she can feel it deep in her soul—but she knows he’s in grave danger. It will be up to her and Gabby to navigate the twisted path to Grayson, a path that will lead Ingrid on a discovery of dark secrets and otherworldly truths. And she’ll learn that once they are uncovered, they can never again be buried.
First of all, *cough* cover love *cough; clears throat* Sorry about that. Now where was I? Something about the cover, you say? No, I think you're mistaken We're not supposed to judge books by their covers, and I can't tell you how many disappointments I've had, thinking a book will live up to its cover. No, what I was going to say was, gargoyles. London. Paris. Gargoyles. *grabby hands*
OK, fine. I was totally staring at that cover. Happy? Now you stop staring, and let me know what you're waiting on! :P
