Description

Rare book authenticator Carys Jones wanted nothing more than to be left alone to pursue her obsession with ancient manuscripts. But when her biggest client is committed to an asylum, he gives Carys an offer she cannot refuse. In exchange for his entire library of priceless, Dark Age manuscripts, Carys must track the clues hidden in a previously unknown journal, clues that lead to a tomb that could rewrite the history of Western civilization. But there are people who would do anything to stop Carys from finding what she seeks-for reasons both noble and evil. The hunt takes Carys to places she never thought she'd go, physically and emotionally; first to Wales, her estranged father's homeland, then to bed with Dafydd, a mysterious Welshman who agrees to help her with the search, and finally, deep inside her own psyche, when the monk who wrote the journal 1,500 years ago appears and assists her in her search.

Professional reviews

"Carrington MacDuffie's narration of this audiobook is first-class. Carys, a rare-book authenticator, seeks to uncover clues hidden in the ancient journal of a monk that may lead to the location of King Arthur's grave. Add to this an appearance by said monk, and listeners know they are joining a fast-paced adventure. MacDuffie's pacing allows the interweaving plots to unfold without seeming rushed. She voices a wide cast of characters well, including both males and females. Her use of accents and intonation aids the listener in differentiating the characters and sets the scene. While her Welsh accent may not sound as authentic as the others, this does not detract from the thrilling tale. K.J.P. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine"
