Shadows and nightmares are stalking Finian in his dreams and when he is awake. It is up to him and his friends to find out why.
Found floating in a stream as an infant by peasants, with no past and no last name, all twelve-year-old Finian wants in the world is to find out what happened to his parents.
So when his step-sister provides him with the only clue – the corner of a cloak he’d been swaddled in when she found him – he realizes finding them might actually be possible.
What Finian couldn’t begin to suspect was that such a search would drag him into a larger and more perilous world than he could ever have imagined. His quest will lead him into a great conflict that has raged for millennia, an ancient mystery thought lost long ago, and bring him face to face with unimaginable evil.
The Book of Secrets begins a sweeping and unforgettable new fantasy epic in the grandest classical tradition.
