Will West is careful to live life under the radar. At his parents' insistence, he's made sure to get mediocre grades and to stay in the middle of the pack on his cross-country team. Then Will slips up, accidentally scoring off the charts on a nationwide exam, and he is recruited by an exclusive and mysterious prep school - the best school no one's ever heard of, with technology the likes of which no one's ever seen.

At the same time, coincidentally - or not so - Will realizes he's being followed by men in dark hats, driving black sedans who pose a terrifying threat to his family. What follows is a series of events and revelations that places Will smack in the middle of a millennia old struggle between titanic forces . . .

Review quote

"Mark Frost has created a wonderfully inventive and exciting tale where one exceptional teenager must discover the truth about his family ... and himself. The mysteries are unexpected and the mythology is impressively original. A remarkably suspenseful ride. I can't wait for the next instalment!" * Chris Columbus * "New school and new mental powers meet ancient mysteries and ancient war." * Kirkus * "Frost, adult author and Twin Peaks co-creator, makes his YA debut with this densely plotted thriller, first in a trilogy. His story has serious entertainment value and pulls together satisfyingly by book's end, while laying the groundwork for the sequels." * Publishers Weekly * "Heart-pounding...breakneck pace...This young adult literature as popcorn blockbuster" * New York Times * "An addictive Jason Bourne/Pittacus Lore/Harry Potter mash-up. Nonstop action and a richly layered plot propel at a breakneck pace" * Booklist *
