Cassie Arroyo, an American studying in Rome, has her world ripped apart when someone tries to kill her father, an art history professor at an Italian university. Is she their next target?

Cassie sets out to uncover what is happening, only to learn that she is a member of an ancient bloodline that enables her to use the Spear of Destiny - a legendary object that can alter the future. Now running from a secret organization intent on killing those from her bloodline, Cassie must - with the help of some friends - decipher the clues that will lead her to the Spear.

Great book but weird ending

AL_BRIDGET Aug 23, 2016

This is a very quick read with almost non-stop action. It actually reminds me of a kids version of The DaVinci Code, with secret societies, Roman adventures, and a few puzzling riddles (though not the religious focus of the adult book). If you're in the mood for an action packed mystery with a great main character, this is a great choice.
