When Evie Walker goes home to spend time with her dying father, she discovers that his creaky old house in Hope's Fort, Colorado, is not the only legacy she will inherit. Hidden behind the basement door is a secret and magical storeroom, a place where wondrous treasures from myth and legend are kept safe until they are needed again.

Of course, this legacy is not without its costs: There are those who will give anything to find a way in.

With the help of her father, a mysterious stranger named Alex, and some unexpected heroes, Evie must guard the storeroom against ancient and malicious forces, and protect both the past and the future even as the present unravels. Old heroes and notorious villains alike rise to fight on her side or to do their best to bring about her defeat.

At stake is the fate of the world and the prevention of nothing less than the apocalypse.

Listener Opinions

    " This was an odd book. Unlike her 'Kitty' series, it doesn't occur in our world, but rather a very similar world only with the world on the brink of disaster. It brings in the ancient Greek gods and goddesses, as well as a couple other people from the time of Troy and the destruction thereof. At first I thought it read like the first in a series-a lot of set-up, learning who's who and why they're important. Then we come to the end. Can't say I'm a fan of the ending. Still, getting to that part was fun and entertaining, and I really liked Alex/Sinon and his story. His story ended well, I thought. "

    " Great premise. It's a decent book with good writing. Original concept. I could have, however, done without the stuff about her writing. It seemed pointless to me and had nothing to do with the plot. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mike | 2/4/2014

    " I really didn't expect I'd care for this book, but I ended up finding it enthralling. The one primary quibble I have with it is actually its name. All of the other mythological figures are referred to by their Greek names; therefore, it shouldn't be Discordia, but Eris. "

    " Finished this book today at lunch and I thought it was an interesting read. The heroine was good, but didn't know everything which is always a positive. The hero was interesting, but I would've liked to see more of his struggle, without it he seems a little cardboard to me. The story takes place in America but it's an America under martial law and one step away from nuclear war - I would've enjoyed learning more about what brought the country to the brink like that. Loved the ties to the various mythologies! I'm not sure if I'll read it again at some point, but I'm certainly glad I gave this one a shot. "

    " This book was amazing. I could not put it down. Troy is one of my favorite Greek myths and this book just made me love it more. I recommend this book to everyone. "

    " I like Vaughn's "Kitty" books, but after reading Discord's Apple and After the Golden Age she's moved up to my "autobuy" list. Her exploration of themes of mythology, ancient and modern, brings a fresh look to cultural tropes and folklore. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 + Dragonfly+ | 12/7/2013

    " Hard to get into at first, but then I got it and really liked this book. Interesting idea! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Beth F. | 12/5/2013

    " Not bad, but Evie Walker is no Kitty Norville. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Matt Piechocinski | 11/22/2013

    " Great stuff. I think I might have a crush on Carrie Vaughn. Thoroughly impressive. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marsha | 11/6/2013

    " In the near future the world faces one major disaster after another, magic is reemerging and myths are interweaving with reality. Evie Walker finds herself the keeper of a story room of magical item waiting for their owners and the object of interest of a man who can not die. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Christi Barth | 10/9/2013

    " Entertaining - always fun to see ancient myths brought into current times. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dawn Swingle | 1/19/2013

    " Interesting premise, but not that well executed. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Deedee | 3/21/2012

    " Her werewolf books are better. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Elena | 1/19/2012

    " The crux of this book is an enormously racist re-imagining of the world, based on Greek mythology, without even a nod to other mythology. If I could give it no stars, I would. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Susan | 12/15/2011

    " Great book... didn't care too much for the ending, but it was a definite ending. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 HRM Maire | 6/23/2011

    " I really like this unique premise, where a family has been taking care of a Storehouse of magical items over the centuries. Combining history, myth and fairy tales along with engaging characters (as usual for the author) makes this story very entertaining! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rodney | 6/17/2011

    " Its a good read, too bad its a stand alone novel. It would've been nice to have a sequel. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tisha | 5/24/2011

    " I really liked this book. I've read the Kitty books by her and loved them and this book did not disappoint. =) I'd read more of these books "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Crystal | 5/17/2011

    " Great book! Picked it up by chance at the library and I couldn't put it down. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Theomanic | 5/17/2011

    " It was a lot softer than I expected, and not nearly as mysterious. It was alright, but nothing special. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nicole | 5/8/2011

    " I like the different story line from Carrie Vaughn. I like the mix of future and historical in the storyline, and would like another with the same characters. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rene | 5/5/2011

    " A believable combination of myth and reality, gods and humans. "
