Publisher's Summary

For two years, Cyrus and Antigone Smith have run a sagging roadside motel with their older brother, Daniel. Nothing ever seems to happen. Then a strange old man with bone tattoos arrives, demanding a specific room.
Less than 24 hours later, the old man is dead. The motel has burned, and Daniel is missing. And Cyrus and Antigone are kneeling in a crowded hall, swearing an oath to an order of explorers who have long served as caretakers of the world's secrets, keepers of powerful relics from lost civilizations, and jailers to unkillable criminals who have terrorized the world for millennia.
N. D. Wilson, author of Leepike Ridge and 100 Cupboards, returns with an imagination-capturing adventure that inventively combines the contemporary and the legendary.

Great story - great narration

This book was a great listen. N.D. Wilson is one of the best young adult fiction writers and his new series is off to a fantastic start. All of the characters are interesting and it's fun to find out more about each one as the story unfolds. The storyline is really good -- the momentum builds quickly. I'm really looking forward to the next book in this series.
