The Hallows. Ancient artifacts imbued with a primal and deadly power. But are they protectors of this world, or the keys to its destruction? 

 
A gruesome murder in London reveals a sinister plot to uncover a two-thousand-year-old secret.
 
For decades, the Keepers guarded these Hallows, keeping them safe and hidden and apart from each other. But now the Keepers are being brutally murdered, their prizes stolen, the ancient objects bathed in their blood.
 
Now, only a few remain.
With her dying breath, one of the Keepers convinces Sarah Miller, a practical stranger, to deliver her Hallow—a broken sword with devastating powers—to her American nephew, Owen.  

The duo quickly become suspects in a series of murders as they are chased by both the police and the sadistic Dark Man and his nubile mistress. 
 
As Sarah and Owen search for the surviving Keepers, they unravel the deadly secret the Keepers were charged to protect. The mystery leads Sarah and Owen on a cat-and-mouse chase through England and Wales, and history itself, as they discover that the sword may be the only thing standing between the world… and a horror beyond imagining.

    " Maybe I'm getting sensative in my old age, but I was turned off by all the blood, gore, sex and foul language in this book. Too bad, I thought it had potential. I read enough to get the idea, then skipped to the end to see how it all turned out. "

    " What a load of crap. I'm not really sure why this book exists. It sounded like it might be a fun, silly read: ancient objects, murder, mysterious powers. However, it was poorly executed, horribly researched, and the only way to propel the plot forward was to give the bad guys psychic powers (that were powered by sex?). After reading the book, I'm not even clear on what all the 13 Hallows were, the majority of them were only even named once with no explanation or clarification of what they actually were. One of the objects was a magical "hamper"? Since when is a hamper a leather pouch you wear around your neck, even the OED defines hamper as a basket or a box, with the oldest listing as 14th century french used as a verb. The authors should be ashamed, and the editors in charge of this dumpfest should be placed on notice. However, if you like the Twilight books (or if you're suuuper bummed that The Vampire Diaries is in re-runs again), this seems like it would be wriiten on a level for your enjoyment. I've smelled week-old dead dogs that stank less. Cheers! "

    " Great first story in this trilogy but definitely very adult - the sex and bloodshed were handled professionally and weren't lascivious. "

    " Wow ok very weird to say the least. Mind you the sex stuff was a little out there, it wasn't so much descriptive like I feared it would be. I myself enjoyed the book very well. Mr. Scott kept my curiosity throughtout the book, just like his other series: Nicholas Flamel. I enjoyed them very immensily also!! Enjoyed the whole artifacts concept of the book too. Will be waiting to see if there is a book 2 for this series. "
