NY Times and USA Today bestselling author Anita Clenney grew up an avid reader, devouring Nancy Drew and Hardy Boys books before moving on to mysteries and romance. After working as a secretary, a Realtor, teacher's assistant, booking agent for Aztec Fire Dancers, and a brief stint in a pickle factory (picture Lucy and Ethel--lasted half a day)...she realized she'd missed the fork in the road that led to her destiny. Now she spends her days writing mysteries and paranormal romantic suspense about Secret Warriors, Ancient Evil and Destined Love.
Anita lives in suburban Virginia, outside Washington DC, with her husband and two kids.

Having enjoyed the book immensely, I was rather surprised at the reviews that the book has garnered. I felt the book was very well written, the author’s vivid descriptions allowing the reader to become part of the book, part of the chase. The book had an eccentric cast of characters that kept you on your toes throughout the book.
I got caught up in the story as I pictured the hiking trail and swinging bridge as two of the characters traversed the hillside (to give more examples would give too much away). The author went into a lot of detail about the castle and the hidden passages, catacombs, etc. I was fascinated by this and felt she did an excellent job. The author also managed to disperse humor in conversations throughout the book.
I enjoyed the intrigue and the author brought about a cliffhanger that I didn’t see coming, leaving me breathlessly awaiting the next book in the series. I am giving .... the five stars I think it deserves.
