Today they released a very cool promotional trailer. Check it out.
I'm really looking forward to reading this. The cover is pretty nice. Very sleek and elegant looking. The story line sounds very paranormal with a twist of mystery.
Here's the summary available from Daniel & Dina's website:
One night, across four cities, five children disappear. Years later,
five enigmatic teenagers appear at an exclusive New York holiday party
with their strange but beautiful governess, Madame Vileroy. Rumor and
mystery follow the Faust children to the elite Marlowe School, where
their presence brings unexplainable misfortune.
Using a series of “gifts” given to them by Madame Vileroy, the
children are able to soar to suspicious heights at Marlowe. The gifts
seem child-like in their simplicity. The governess teaches them to
cheat, steal, hide, and lie; ‘harmless’ she calls them, though they are
much more. For the vicious over-achiever, reading an unsuspecting mind
is simply to cheat. For the reclusive pariah, the gift of stopping time
is just another way to hide. And who but an aspiring writer can weave a
Soon, Madame Vileroy’s gifts become darker and more complex. Living
in a gray home designed to cultivate and corrupt them, they are
enveloped in the side effects of their own addictions. They live cursed
lives, making deals with the devil as they claw their way toward their
goals….that is until two of them begin to uncover secrets more shocking
than their most unforgivable sins. A modern retelling of an ancient
dilemma, Another Faust recreates the story of the Faustian bargain. Set
in present-day New York, but spanning the centuries, it is a chilling
tale of ambition, consequences, and ultimate redemption.
Another Faust will release on August 25, 2009.
