This is such a fantastic, intelligent book! It's fast-paced, bookish, dark, and dangerous at times. Everyone has said that this is YA Dan Brown, and they're right! Things are not as they seem, enemies lurk behind every shadow, and a world-changing artifact lies hidden somewhere in Prague. People will kill for it. People have killed for it--and they won't stop until their goal is complete.

There are a few small problems I have with it, but they're absolutely minor, and maybe I'm being nitpicky. (view spoiler)it was only in bits of the characterization that I found problems. The plot was great, the mystery was delightfully tantalizing, and it's absolutely worth reading.
