July 1209: in Carcassonne a young girl is given a mysterious book by her father which he claims contains the secret of the true Grail. Although Alaïs cannot understand the strange words and symbols hidden within, she knows that her destiny lies in protecting it. It will take great sacrifice and faith to keep the secret of the labyrinth safe - a secret that stretches back thousands of years to the deserts of Ancient Egypt . . .

July 2005: Alice Tanner stumbles upon two skeletons during an archaeological dig in the mountains outside Carcassonne. Inside the hidden tomb where the bones lie crumbling, she experiences an overwhelming sense of malevolence, as well as a creeping understanding that, however impossible it seems, she can somehow understand the mysterious ancient words carved into the rock. Too late, Alice realises she's set in motion a terrifying sequence of events that she cannot control and that her destiny is inextricably tied up with the fate of the Cathars 800 years before.

We found this book lying unwanted and unloved on a shelf. :-(

So now it's going to make someone's wish come true! :-)

I found 8 packages in my mailbox (which is across the street from my house). It was quite the adventure to carry them all home crossing the very icy street. :)

This is a very lovely surprise! Thank you Blue Fairy!

I recently saw this mini series on tv. Thought that was okay. But when I settled in to read this book, I couldn't get into it. Too many images in my head. Sad, because it is my type of story. Not sure what was missing for me.

It only took me a year and a half to actually get through Mount TBR to this book. Thank you lauraloo29 & BCFairies for making this wish come true. Now I will pass this along to someone else interested in historic fiction and grail tails :)
