A tragic tale about falling in love on the world’s most infamous ill-fated sea voyage as heroine, Tess, discovers darker secrets that lie beneath the doomed crossing… and a hidden brotherhood that threaten to tear her lover from her forever.
The RMS Titanic is the most luxurious ship ever built, but for eighteen-year-old Tess Davies it’s a prison. Travelling as a maid for the family she has served for years, Tess is trapped in their employ amid painful memories and family secrets.
When she meets Alec, a handsome upper class passenger, Tess falls helplessly in love. But Alec has secrets of his own… and soon Tess is entangled in a dangerous game. A sinister brotherhood that will do anything to induct Alec into their mystical order has followed him onboard. And Tess is now their most powerful pawn.
Tess and Alec fight the dark forces threatening to tear them apart, never realising that they will have to face an even greater peril before the journey is over…


This one is published September 2011 by HarperTeen in the US and March 2012 by Harper Children's Books in the UK. What do you think of the different covers? I have to be honest and say I'm not all that fussed about either but probably prefer US. Even so, this sounds awesome!


  1. Definitely excited about this one too. Love Gray. Great pick!

  2. Sounds great!

    Here's my WoW this week. Happy Reading!

  3. This sounds amazing. I have to say I like the US cover more for some reason.

  4. Definitely want to read this one. I actually like the UK cover better...feels more lush, less flat I think. Prolly just the colors.

    Our WOW pick is at Book Sake.

  5. Oh my, I'd be embarrassed to have the UK cover on my shelf! It's pretty bad IMO. Much prefer the US.

  6. This is my pick this week too! LoL! Great minds think alike!

  7. Great pick! Both covers are intriguing! New follower!

    My WoW

  8. This book's on my wishlist. I can't wait. I hadn't seen the UK cover. Very pretty! Thanks for sharing.

    My WOW

  9. Looking forward to this one too! I prefer the US cover, but don't really mind that much. Great pick!
