Review: The Book of Blood and Shadow

By - Robin Wasseman
Published - April 10, 2012

Nora had the perfect senior year project.  She was a professor’s translation assistant with one of her best friends and his roommate at the nearby local college.  She is to translate personal letters from the 16th century from Latin to English.  At first she is upset because she is given the personal letters because of her age, but then the author, Elizabeth, begins to grow on her and she begins translating the letters in her spare time.  All translations come to a stop when the professor is hospitalized, the manuscripts go missing and her best friend, Chris, is found dead.  She believes these events are all related and convinces her other best friend, Adriane, to skip the senior trip to Paris and go to Prague (the original location of these manuscripts).  Can they determine who is behind Chris’s murder?  Was the device mentioned in the manuscripts real and is it still hidden and waiting to be rediscovered?  The Book of Blood and Shadow is a cross between The Da Vinci Code and National Treasure.  Secret organizations, hidden codes, long lost documents and European history abound in this page turning tome.  Goodreads Book Information
