(From the publisher):
Hear this, O Nobly-Born: life eternal we offer thee. So opens a strange and forgotten manuscript, The Book Of Skulls, which send four college students from their ivy-covered dorm rooms to an eerie monastery in the forbidding Arizona desert on a quest for immortality. It is here that Eli, Ned, Timothy, and Oliver will face the Trial, the ancient ritual of the Keepers of the Skull. But the Trial exacts a terrible price. Once the ritual begins, there is no turning back...and only two students can emerge immortal.
