In My Mailbox - March 26th

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren in which bloggers post about the books they have received for the week.  Books may be won, taken out from the library or bought from a store.

I saw this one in the bookstore and went to my local library to check it out.  I tend not to purchase titles that I don't know much about unless they are part of a series that I love.  This one looked so interesting!  Check out the summary (by Goodreads)

The Hallows. Ancient artifacts imbued with a primal and deadly power. But are they protectors of this world, or the keys to its destruction? 

A gruesome murder in London reveals a sinister plot to uncover a two-thousand-year-old secret. 

For decades, the Keepers guarded these Hallows, keping them safe, hidden, and apart from one another. But now the Keepers are being brutally murdered, their prizes stolen, the ancient objects bathed in their blood. 

Now, only a few remain. 

With her dying breath, one of the Keepers convinces Sarah Miller, a virtual stranger, to deliver her Hallow--a broken sword with devastating powers--to her nephew, Owen. 

The duo quickly become suspects in a series of murders as they are chased by both the police and the sadistic Dark Man and his nubile mistress. 

As Sarah and Owen search for the surviving Keepers, they unravel a deadly secret the Keepers were charged to protect. The mystery leads Sarah and Owen on a cat-and-mouse chase through England and Wales--and history itself--as they discover that the sword may be the only thing standing between the world... and a horror beyond imagining. 

Don't forget to check out our GIVEAWAY for a copy of all 6 volumes in the Galahad Legacy series
This year I'm trying to take only a few books out of the library and be more reasonable with what I can read at one time.  Sure, I have lots on my TBR page still but I can't read like a speed-demon like some bloggers can. (ahem...Curlypow....) :P  What's in your mailbox?


  1. It does look interesting. I've not seen this one before, and I do love the cover! Thanks.

  2. I bought this when it came out, but haven't read it yet. I love the author. He writes the Immortal Secrets of Nicholas Flamel series that I love!

  3. I saw the cover at Chapters and it looked intriguing. To be honest, I haven't started it yet. I began reading The Gathering by Kelley Armstrong and I haven't been able to put it down!
