Sixteen-year- old Trinity was born during a solar eclipse and left at the doorsteps of a
convent along with a torn piece of papyrus covered with ancient symbols. Raised by
nuns in the English countryside, she leads a quiet life until she’s whisked away to the
Island of Cats and a grandmother she never knew.
But before they can get to know each other, her grandmother dies. All that Trinity has
left is a mysterious eye-shaped ring. And a thousand grieving cats. As Trinity tries to
solve the enigma of the torn papyrus, she discovers a world of bloody sacrifices and evil
curses, and a prophecy that points to her and her new feline abilities.
Unwilling to believe that any of the Egyptian gods could still be alive, Trinity turns to
eighteen-year- old Seth and is instantly pulled into a vortex of sensations that forces her
to confront her true self—and a horrifying destiny.
A certified bookworm, Zoe Kalo has always been obsessed with books and reading.
Reading led to writing—compulsively. No surprise that at 16, she wrote her first novel,
which her classmates read and passed around secretly. The pleasure of writing and
sharing her fantasy worlds has stayed with her, so now she wants to pass her stories to
you with no secrecy—but with lots of mystery…
A daughter of adventurous expats, she’s had the good fortune of living on 3 continents,
learning 4 languages, and experiencing a multicultural life. Currently, she’s working on a
Master’s degree in Comparative Literature, which she balances between writing, taking
care of her clowder of cats, and searching for the perfect bottle of pinot noir.
