A gothic tale about Victor Hugo's long–buried secrets
and the power of a love that never dies . . . In 1843,
novelist Victor Hugo's beloved
nineteen–year–old daughter drowned. Ten years
later, still grieving, Hugo initiated hundreds of séances
from his home on the Isle of Jersey in order to reestablish
contact with her. In the process, he claimed to have
communed with Plato, Galileo, Shakespeare, Dante,
Jesus—and even the devil himself. Hugo's
transcriptions of these conversations have all been
Or so it has been believed . . .
Recovering from a great loss, mythologist Jac L'Etoile
thinks that throwing herself into work will distract her
from her grief. In the hopes of uncovering a secret about
the island's mysterious Celtic roots, she arrives on Jersey
and is greeted by ghostly Neolithic monuments, medieval
castles and hidden caves. But the man who has invited her
there, a troubled soul named Theo Gaspard, hopes she'll
help him discover something quite different—
transcripts of Hugo's lost conversations with someone he
called the Shadow of the Sepulcher. Central to his
heritage, these are the papers his grandfather died trying
to find. Neither Jac nor Theo anticipate that the mystery
surrounding Victor Hugo will threaten their sanity and put
their very lives at stake.
