Floriana is a seemingly ordinary art student, until an exciting opportunity to study ancient Greek relics introduces her to long-held secrets and shockingly dangerous truths.
Her life becomes altogether extraordinary when a seemingly benign morning excursion transforms into an agonizing race across Europe to save humanity. Soon, she must work against the clock to recreate an antidote to save mankind before nostalgic Nazi militias make good on their plan to create a legion of superhuman zombie-soldiers that will wreak havoc on mankind.
As the heir apparent to a family of masterminds, Floriana is the only one capable of thwarting their efforts, but first she’ll come face-to-face with black roses, presumptive killers, and mysterious sects.
With the fate of the world in her hands, can an inexperienced and clumsy art student create an antidote before it’s too late?
Find out in this adrenaline rushing, young adult thrill ride, chock full of espionage, conspiracy theories, spies, and zombies!

However, the language of flowers, established in the 19th century, ignores the true symbolism of the black rose, the symbolism that was given by the first alchemists: revitalization, renewal and regeneration.” He stirred his tea with a silver spoon.
Floriana had no idea what the meaning of all of this was. “What does all of this have to do with what happened to me in the last fifteen hours?” she asked.
“A little patience and you will soon understand,” the Master replied. “Toward the end of the 18th century, disputes broke out within the Golden Dawn, and a few years later, a split occurred.
