If Cat can bring the pieces back, there will be a generous reward.

Buried deep within the abbey are pieces of the Montglane Chess Service, once owned by Charlemagne. Whoever reassembles the pieces can play a game of unlimited power. But to keep the Game a secret from those who would abuse it, the two young women must scatter the pieces throughout the world....

    " It was a goodbook, interesting, and full of historical informations. Also we must remember that it was written before Da Vinci Code, and this is a sign of originality. A little bit boring at the middle. "

    " Bored to death. I can't. I just can't. The very idea of continuing further makes me groan. I have too many other books I'm longing to read to waste any more of my time. "
