The Book of Blood and Shadow by Robin Wasserman | NOOK Book (eBook) | Barnes & Noble®Thank you! Here's something refreshing: a religious-historical thriller with a nifty Mobius strip of a plot—think Nancy Werlin channeling Dan Brown—serving up shivery suspense, sans fangs or fur. Battered by family tragedy, high school senior Nora has been sleepwalking through life in her chilly New England town. Knowing her facility in Latin, Chris and his roommate, Max, talk her into helping translate letters relating to Edward Kelley, a prominent 16th-century alchemist. A cryptic message from Max sends Nora, joined by the semi-recovered Adriane and stalked by Eli, to the mean streets of Prague.

High school is torture with everyone staring and talking, even glaring and accusing, since her brother also took his popular girlfriend with him to the grave in the accident. To escape the achingly familiar, Nora applies for a scholarship to the exclusive private school across town. Thanks to her Latin professor father, who drilled Latin lessons on her for years, Nora impresses the private school board and achieves a scholarship.
