I dream of beauty and sightless night
I dream of strength and fevered might
I dream I'm not alone again
But I know of his death and her grievous sin.
Ah, and just what does this strange song mean that was seemingly imprinted on the child's brain?
She names herself Rosalind de la Fontaine, since she cannot remember who she is. In her first season in London in 1835, under the aegis of the Sherbrookes, she meets Nicholas Vail, the 7th Earl of Mountjoy, newly arrived from Macau. It is instant fascination on both their parts, but for different reasons.
With Grayson Sherbrooke, they are led to an ancient copy of a mysterious book written by a 16th-century wizard. The book is written in a baffling code that neither Grayson nor Nicholas can read.
But Rosalind can, easily.
Strange things start happening. Both Nicholas and Rosalind know it has to do with the old book and, perhaps, even her past, particularly the song she first sang as a child. The urgency builds as they realize Rosalind is the key to a centuries-old mystery.

The Worst Listen Ever!!
This is my first review and I have had the pleasure of listening to many audible books. If possible I would give this book a (-5). I am extremely disappointed in this book and would not recommend it to anyone with half a brain. From the first chapter of the book it was apparent I was listening to the worst drivel ever written. The dialogue is terrible, and the readers' British? accent even worse. I found myself wanting to lead the heroine by the hand to a psychiatrist. The characters are boring and incomplete, they are introduced into the story at random with very little if any bearing on the plot (which is elementary at best). The storyline was vague and juvenile. I REGRET purchasing this book and wish I could get back the time I WASTED listening to it.

This is the worst book I have ever forced myself to endure. I think some of my brain cells committed suicide from the effort. It was boring and extremely idiotic. I'm sorry that I wasted the money and the hours.
