I was blown away not only by the stunning book cover, but by the beautiful, sophisticated writing appropriate to the time period of this novel. I am a big Roshani Chokshi fan and have read her previous works and this one is no less fascinating. It is incredibly appealing. A dangerous treasure hunt in Paris for an ancient artifact with an unlikely band of people. Feeling the adventurous and witty vibe of Ocean's 11 plus the mystery and danger of The Da Vince Code plus lots of originality added. I love treasure hunts and I can't wait to dive into this one. And I loved that the first look had a biblical reference. Just adds relevant layers and makes the story that much deeper and intriguing.
