When her safe-cracker mom and code-breaker dad inherit a dreary Scottish castle, sixteen-year-old Caity Mac Fireland is not happy. Ripped from her cushy life and friends in San Francisco, Caity's secret fantasy of being discovered by a Hollywood agent, talent scout, or even just a pageant coach seems more unlikely than ever.

But when Caity stumbles across a hidden room in the castle, its walls covered in strange symbols, her life takes a bizarre turn. She finds herself center stage in an international conspiracy involving warring secret societies, assassins, the suppressed revelations of the Mayan Calendar and the year 2012, plus the fate of humanity.

With the help of her friend Justine back home, and Alex, a gorgeous and mysterious Scottish boy, Caity must race to decipher the code and reveals its message to the world before time runs out. 

Review: Caity Mac Fireland finds herself ensconced in a Scottish island castle after her parents inherit it from a distant relative and she's torn away from her friends and school. She finds pictographs which leads to a prophecy stating that she will play a huge role in the upcoming events in 2012. She now has to come to terms with her role as one of the harbingers of humanity’s destiny. This book is full of codes, symbols, Chinese, Mayan, and other cultural myths, secret societies, and an origami-making monkey.

This is a great book! I was quickly finished the book seemingly no sooner than I’d started. It’s a rich and complex story with great characters and a global mystery. I can’t wait for the next book in the series!
