Book 7 in the Whyborne & Griffin Series
Previous book: Hoarfrost
Between his father's sudden-and rather suspicious-generosity, and his own rash promise to help Christine plan her wedding, Percival Endicott Whyborne has quite enough to worry about. But when the donation of a mysterious codex to the Ladysmith Museum draws the attention of a murderous cult, Whyborne finds himself in a race against time to unlock its secrets first.
Griffin has a case of his own: the disappearance of an historic map, which quickly escalates to murder. Someone is sacrificing men in dark rituals-and all the clues lead back to the museum.
With their friends Christine and Iskander, Whyborne and Griffin must discover the cult's true goal before it's too late. For dark forces are afoot at the very heart of the museum, and they want more than Whyborne's codex.
They want his life.

Another fantastic adventure with Whybourne and Griffin. So much emotion. All the adventure in the last 1/3 had me so on the edge of my seat there was no dinner at my house tonight, I had to keep reading!!!!!!! I love this series. Worth reading over and over and over again!
Hawk jeeps tightening the screws on her heroes: new villains, new catastrophes, new spells. Things just keep getting worse -- but Whyborne and Griffin have one another, and they will stand by one another no matter what. Plus, it was cool to see Heliabel and Persephone again, and to see Mr. Quinn and Miss Parkhurst take a more prominent role. Highly recommended to fans of the series. -- lyradora
As usual, I was blown away by Jordan L Hawk's Whyborne & Griffin, of course, I never expected not to be. The entire series has me on the edge of my seat but there was something about Maelstrom that had me perched on the edge that I might as well have sat on the floor because it took everything I had to stay on the chair. As always, Christine adds her unique brand of friendship and determination. I don't do spoilers but I will say there came a point that I was yelling "NO! NO! NO!", the rest I will let you discover for yourself and trust me, you will want to find out. Can't wait to see what she has planned for their next adventure.
