Thea Winthrop is a Double Seventh, the seventh child of two seventh children. From birth, great things were expected of her, gradually replaced by puzzled disappointment as it became evident her magical abilities are, at most, minimal. Now, with Cheveyo, Thea has begun to weave herself a new magical identity, infused with elements of the original worlds where Cheveyo and others like him walk. But back home, she attends the Academy, the one school on earth for those who, like her, can’t do magic. It is there that Thea realizes that her enemies are hungrier and more dangerous than she thought. What’s more, her greatest strength may be the very powerlessness she has resisted for so long.

Her father’s promotion means leaving her whole life in New York behind. She finds herself transplanted to a huge, lonely manor house in the English countryside, with no one for company but the distant staff. Her new school only adds to her misery – neither the girls nor the teachers seem to like her. Then Megan meets three girls who actually talk to her instead of about her, and at first she thinks things are getting better. But the girls seem more interested in the strange rumors that the house is haunted. Desperate to make friends, Megan invites them to sleep over for the weekend. A discovery of a cryptic poem, a key and a diary written by the builder of the manor – an eccentric archaeologist – turns the sleepover into a treasure hunt. Clues lead the girls to believe the Parthenon holds a great secret – and suddenly they find themselves sucked into one man’s version of Ancient Greece. The only way home is to find an object thought to be mere legend. If they survive that long.
