Nora, a bookish girl from a damaged family, is the kind of teen who's thrilled when she receives a Latin dictionary for her birthday. She's trying to make a normal life for herself at a new school when suddenly everything she cares about is destroyed – two of her friends are murdered and her boyfriend is implicated. Determined to learn the truth about what happened, she sets out to find the culprit. Her journey takes her to the ancient streets of Prague where she finds herself in a shadowy world of secret religious societies and assassins who will stop at nothing.
