"By switching character viewpoints often, the authors keep the pace moving to an ending full of action, revelation and horror."
From the Publisher
Years after vanishing from cities across Europe, five teens appear at an exclusive New York party with a strange and elegant governess, and when they enter the city's most prestigious high school, the Faust teenagers soar to suspicious heights with the help of their benefactor's extraordinary "gifts."
Inspired by the story of Faust and packed with literary references, this page-turning young adult novel follows the evil follies of a quintet of gifted teens. Kidnapped as children at the same time, but in different cities, and reappearing years later in New York City, five teenagers take on the elite at the exclusive Marlowe School, and wreak havoc with their powers. Led by a mysterious governess, they make bargains with the devil, and soon two of the group are onto some very unpleasant discoveries. The first in a series.
