I asked and received a copy of this book from the author/Inkslinger PR in exchange for my honest review.

Thank you, Inkslinger PR, for providing the ARC.

Let me start by saying I have never read anything by either of these authors or anything from the series. But this can be read as a stand-alone or as part of a series of its own. It’s a novella and a good place to start reading the authors’ work.

The characters are wonderfully created, and the story slips effortlessly back and forth between the ancient past and present day. The protagonist is satisfactorily fleshed out that it has intrigued me to read the other stories in the original series.


The dialogues are very revealing of what lies at the core of the story and also the smarts of the writers.


If you like magic and sorcery, you’ll find yourself lapping the story in no time. And if you want to dip your toes in this genre, this is an excellent place to start.


My rating is four starts.

About M. J. Rose

New York Times bestseller, M.J. Rose grew up in New York City mostly in the labyrinthine galleries of the Metropolitan Museum, the dark tunnels and lush gardens of Central Park and reading her mother's favorite books before she was allowed. She believes mystery and magic are all around us but we are too often too busy to notice... books that exaggerate mystery and magic draw attention to it and remind us to look for it and revel in it.

In the French mountain village of Eze, Cassiopeia visits an old friend who owns and operates the fabled Museum of Mysteries, a secretive place of the odd and arcane. When a robbery occurs at the museum, Cassiopeia gives chase to the thief and is plunged into a firestorm.

Through a mix of modern day intrigue and ancient alchemy, Cassiopeia is propelled back and forth through time, the inexplicable journeys leading her into a hotly contested French presidential election. Both candidates harbor secrets they would prefer to keep quiet, but an ancient potion could make that impossible. With intrigue that begins in southern France and ends in a chase across the streets of Paris, this magical, fast-paced, hold-your-breath thriller is all you’ve come to expect from M.J. Rose and Steve Berry.
