France, 1942. While war blazes at the front lines of Europe,
in the walled southern city of Carcassonne, nestled deep in the Pyrenees, a
group of courageous women is engaged in an equally lethal battle. Like their
ancestors who fought northern invaders seven hundred years before, these
members of the French Resistance—code-named Citadel—fight to liberate their
home from the Nazis.
Led by a daring eighteen-year-old, Sandrine Vidal, and her
elder sister, Marianne, the women of Citadel work quickly to sabotage their
German occupiers, safeguard their neighbors, and smuggle refugees over the
mountains into neutral territory. But that is only part of their mission. Their
struggle will reveal an older, darker combat being fought in the shadows, one
meant to protect an ancient secret that, if it fell into the wrong hands, could
change the course of history.
Combining rugged action with the haunting mystery of an
ancient city, Citadel is a story of daring and courage, love and
passion, as the women of Citadel dare the impossible to save their homeland—and the astonishing secrets buried in time are at long last revealed.
