Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 7-10–Rachel Buchanan, 15, is Blackthorn Academy's newest student. Arrested in California for grand theft auto, the wealthy teen is sent to this Pennsylvania boarding school to avoid a sentence in juvenile detention. It is here that Rachel's life changes forever. Blackthorn Academy is no ordinary boarding school, and Jonathon Kim is no ordinary headmaster. Rachel's penchant for discovering the truth leads her unwittingly into her first mission–to save the Book of Seraphim–and ultimately to uncover Kim's secret. A former FBI special agent, the headmaster runs a covert operation through the school to protect the world from Simon Blankenship, another former Special Forces agent who believes he is the mythical underworld god, Mithras, reborn and destined to rule the world. Although the characters are not terribly complex and the plot is fairly far-fetched, the book is an entertaining page-turner. Spradlin captures the perfect teenage voice in his protagonist; she is more than just a spoiled, fashion-conscious teen from Beverly Hills–she is the Spy Goddess–witty and smart with an edge. Overall, this is an intelligent, exciting mystery that will have broad appeal.–Leigh Ann Morlock, formerly at Vernonia School District, OR

From Booklist

Gr. 6-9. Someone has stolen the Book of the Seraphim, and legend has it that the second coming of Mithras is near. Fifteen-year-old Rachel Buchanan, an unenthusiastic student at Blackthorn School, wouldn't care except that her class recently visited the museum that houses the artifact, and she overheard her headmaster talking urgently to an FBI agent. Something is up, and Rachel isn't one to sit by without investigating. When Headmaster Kim disappears, Rachel is the only person with enough information to rescue him. Boys as well as girls will be attracted to this first book in a proposed series, and they'll eagerly follow Rachel's adventures, similar in feel to Alex Ryder's, but more about solving puzzles than using gadgetry.
