In a way, this is part of Lowell's medieval series, telling the story of a descendant in a contemporary thriller dealing with ancient texts. Great read.

After reading the first three books in this series I was anxious to learn of Erik the Learned's fate. Erik North and Serena Charters know that from their first meeting that they have known each other in a past life. They're just not sure how or when. This book is a wonderful conclusion to a great series.

As I work my way through reading every book by Ms. Lowell I must say that this one really stood out. A marvelous subject matter and with bringing at least 10 characters into this novel which were from others of her works, it was like old home week! Perhaps her best that I've read yet!

"The troubling message from Serena Charters's late grandmother appears in a package containing four pages of a centuries-old illuminated manuscript -- a strange inheritance that hides many secrets...and has already cost many lives. Seeking answers, Serena turns to Erik North of Rarities Unlimited, a reclusive manuscript appraiser with a passion for the past. Without warning, they are thrust together into the center of a lethal firestorm that rages between two worlds -- one long dead, yet living on in an ancient text, the other chillingly alive and fraught with peril. In the blink of an eye, Serena and Erik have become targets of an unseen and determined stalker as they get closer to shocking revelations about Serena's legacy, the cold murder of an eccentric old woman in the heat of the Mojave Desert...and just how far a remorseless killer is willing to go. And now their only slim hope of survival is to keep moving."

This was a well written, entertaining mystery romance! I particularly enjoyed it because of the search for a centuries old illuminated pages and manuscript of a really old book ---- very interesting! Especially since I had gone with a local library tour to the main down-town Detroit Library lecture about these books and saw a lot of them --- author did a lot of good research on them also! Good read!

Someone torched Serena's grandmother's home with her in it. All Serena has left are some pages from a 12th century illuminated manuscript and a cryptic from her G'mom warning her to trust no man with her inheritance.
Erik has the expertise to certify the documents as authentic and a fascination with their source and the woman who now holds them. Can he keep her safe until they work out the weaving of history? Can they decipher the waking memories of their 12th century namesakes and keep moving until the mystery is solved and their survival is ensured?
Moves fast and hard to put down.
