    There are few authors I could read every day without tiring (I say this never having tried, haha!), but Steve Berry would have to be one. His mix of mystery and little-known historical events blend together to make sensational stories. He has a well-established Cotton Malone series, which has permitted one of its supporting characters—Cassiopeia Vitt—branch out onto her own on one previous occasion. Berry has teamed-up with M.J.

His mix of mystery and little-known historical events blend together to make sensational stories. He has a well-established Cotton Malone series, which has permitted one of its supporting characters—Cassiopeia Vitt—branch out onto her own on one previous occasion. Berry has teamed-up with M.J. Rose, an author I have not read, to create this wonderful novella with Vitt in the driver’s seat. Visiting a friend in the French village of Eze, Cassiopeia Vitt finds herself chasing someone who has just stolen a costly item from a museum. This is not just any box, but a Sabbat Box, filled with elixirs and potions and used in mediaeval times. Apparently brought to auction six months before, the Box contains items that trace back to the fifth century and could be called an ancient ‘pharmacy in a box’. Vitt catches the apparent thief and slides one of the vials into her pocket, curious about what its powers might be. Soon, Vitt is attacked herself and the Box stolen once again. Confronting the original thief, Vitt learns the true power of the Box, having inhaled some of the fumes from her own vial. This takes her back in time, into the body and mind of one Morgan le Fay. During this state, Vitt (le Fay) encounters a man she has been waiting for and with whom she has a romantic connection. Does this hallucination speak to the present course of events? If so, who is this man, if not Cotton Malone (who is on his way to America)? Baffled but adamant that she will retrieve the Sabbat Box, Vitt follows clues she obtains while conversing with a Paris detective. With a French presidential election under a week away, the Sabbat Box could play a larger role that that of the ballot variety in swaying the results. The trouble is, no one is entirely sure how! A brilliant teaser for those waiting for Berry’s next Cotton Malone novel as well as the many fans Rose has of her own work. Recommended specifically for Berry fans who like what Vitt brings to stories (for I cannot speak of anything Rose has penned). As I mentioned above, I have long been a fan of Steve Berry’s work and leapt at the chance to read this piece while I await the next Cotton Malone novel. Berry and Rose have created an interesting tale that pulls on both the present time and distant ages past. Cassiopeia Vitt, who has long been a secondary character, plays the protagonist in this piece. Her backstory is fleshed out a little more, with discussion of her childhood and upbringing. The authors also put her grit and determination front and centre, allowing the reader to better understand this woman who has often been called the ‘billionaire building a castle’ and more recently Cotton Malone’s love interest. The handful of other characters help to offer a stronger story, both in modern France and medieval Europe, though there is surely a sinister revelation that awaits the patient and attentive reader, revealed through intense dialogue presented within the narrative. The story straddles both time periods and uses alchemy to bind them. Without offering up too much of the story (and thereby spoiling it), there is a definite pulse to the story that requires the reader to understand what is going on during both time periods, which can then be bound together by the closing pages of the novella. Berry and Rose Bering their experiences together in this piece, adding some of their characters to the novella and creating a handful of others. While sorcery and magic is not my cup of tea, this piece did pique my interest and I may have to see what M.J. Rose is all about. Additionally, I am curious to see if Berry adds mention of it in his upcoming Malone novel. A great way to spend a short time reading and perfect for a beach afternoon! Kudos, Mr. Berry and Madam Rose, for this piece that is both unique and on par with much that I have read in Berry’s series. I hope you work together again, as this was a wonderful collaborative effort. Love/hate the review?

    This was both similar and different from what I would have expected from a Steve Berry work. I liked reading it from Cassiopeia’s POV because we see quite less of her in Cotton’s series but she is such a formidable character. This one has a mix of Arthurian legends and hallucinatory potions which made for quite an interesting read, but also felt very unrealistic. However, it definitely makes for a fun bridge novella.

    This is so far removed from anything Steve Berry has done in the past that I have to conclude R.J. Rose did most of the heavy lifting. It reads like what I assume a romance novel written by a woman for women would be like. I have always enjoyed the Casseopia Vitt character so this was a huge disappointment.

The characters are wonderfully created, and the story slips effortlessly back and forth between the ancient past and present day. The protagonist is satisfactorily fleshed out that it has intrigued me to read the other stories in the original series. The dialogues are very revealing of what lies at the core of the story and also the smarts of the writers. If you like magic and sorcery, you’ll find yourself lapping the story in no time. And if you want to dip your toes in this genre, this is an excellent place to start. My rating is four starts.

It was well written, but not what I was expecting from a Steve Berry novel. If the authors go forward and make this Cassiopeia Vitt Adventure a series, I wish them well, but I will not join them. However, I can’t wait for the next Steve Berry novel!

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. I've been on a roll recently reading books by M.J. Rose. She co-authored this novella with Steve Berry who I'm not familiar with tho. It was a quick read ~ only 165 pages ~ and interesting. The protagonist, Cassiopeia, travels from present to past (repeatedly) via a vial of 'henbane' found in an ancient Sabbat Box. How handy would it be to have one of those at your fingertips? If I keep reading about the occult, I will soon be schooled in (at least some) of the terminology of their craft. I wasn' I've been on a roll recently reading books by M.J. Rose.

If I keep reading about the occult, I will soon be schooled in (at least some) of the terminology of their craft. I wasn't familiar with a Sabbat Box before I started reading but it makes perfect sense that a herbalist, healer, sorcerer ~ whatever label you choose ~ would have a place to keep their plants and potions together, especially when they needed to be mobile. As demonstrated when it's stolen in the novella, in the wrong hands or using the contents without having been properly educated, it can be a dangerous weapon. I am more and more fascinated by the properties of plants and all this reading is really feeding/fueling that interest! I think the modern era we live in has gotten us away from the knowledge of how powerful ingredients found in nature can be. This was quick paced, as necessary due to its short nature, and the flashbacks to the Medieval Ages were the best part for me. I almost wish we could have spent more time there. The subject of ancient artifacts always piques my interest ~ then add the irresistible lure of seeing/touching something that's existed for centuries and I'm all in. Too bad 'The Museum of Mysteries' is a fictional place. Who knows, maybe there is one secreted away somewhere by another equally compelling name??

    Steve Berry was different in writing a book about Cassiopeia Vitt instead of Cotton Malone although Cotton was briefly in the story. It starts out with a man running out of a museum with an important piece of history after Cassiopeia was held up with an empty gun.

This is a short story that has many ins and outs that are fascinating to think about.

They always leave me wanting, simply because they are so short and, thus, lack the pages for a solid arc. This book was no exception. The premise of THE MUSEUM OF MYSTERIES is interesting and enchanting. It’s an intriguing mystery with touches of history. Readers get action from page 1 — what begins as a theft of a unique artifact leads to thrilling exploits and political betrayal. This novella has a lot to offer but still had plot holes. As I previously mentioned, I was left feeling that this would have made a better full length novel. Certain elements just needed more explanation, and the story felt rushed at times. Can I just say, though, that as a fan of mysteries AND romance, I liked the unexpected steaminess! The star of THE MUSEUM OF MYSTERIES is definitely the main character, Cassiopeia Vitt. I was no stranger to this character, having gotten to know her in Berry’s other books, and I am excited to see her in the spotlight. She is bold, determined, and fiercely intelligent. She has a lot of compassion, too, which you get to see in this novella. I am very much looking forward to more of her adventures in this series. Overall, THE MUSEUM OF MYSTERIES is a good, fast read, that I would recommend to fans of Dan Brown. I’d also recommend that you check out Cassiopeia in the Cotton Malone series by Steve Berry. Trust me when I say that she is a fabulous character who you should get to know better. *I was provided a free copy for review in exchange for an honest review.

    This was a total misfire!! Where is the Cassiopeia Vitt of the Cotton Malone series that we have all come to know and love? This is in no way reminiscent of Steve Berry’s historical adventures and it doesn’t read as though he had a hand in this story at all. It comes off as a boring fantasy, erotic romance. 95% M.J. Rose, 5% Steve Berry.....I’m not a fan.

I was completely intrigued by the references to Morgan Le Fay and Authurian legend. My favorite part of the book actually was the writer’s note. It gave a background of so many elements of the book and tied the story together quite nicely. It also made me add the French village of Eze to my bucket list of places to travel!

Cassiopeia's prodigious strength and re The Museum of Mysteries Steve Berry and M.J. Rose Cassiopeia Vitt is an enticing character who usually appears as the love interest and partner in adventures with Cotton Malone, the central character of mysteries by Steve Berry. In this novella, by M.J. Rose and Berry, she is on her own, except for a few long-distance phone calls with Cotton. As with Berry's books, the Museum of Mysteries merges present with long-distant past in skillfully constructed plots. Cassiopeia's prodigious strength and remarkable physical and mental agility have been established in previous Berry books. In addition, she is, of course, quite beautiful and incredibly wealthy. She has been raised in affluent and exotic locales throughout Europe, and she has equally exotic and affluent friends whom she can call upon whenever she confronts a desperate challenge. This particular episode in Cassiopeia's adventures hinges on an ancient gem-inlaid wooden chest, a Sabbat Box. It contains antique bottles that once held the elixirs gleaned through the knowledge and craft of those who were variously termed witches, healers, sorcerers, priestesses, soothsayers, or simply wise women. Even a brief whiff of one seemingly empty bottle's 700-year-old concoction creates powerful hallucinogenic responses. Thus we have the skillful means for our heroine to travel between Morgan le Fay, a damsel in distress of Arthurian legend era, and a nefarious plot to discredit Lydia St. Benedict, a popular candidate for France's presidency who also has rather kinky sexual proclivities. There is quite a bit of informative discourse on the properties of various herbs and oils. Cassiopeia meets with characters who explain how sorcerers, perfumers, and apothecaries all return to the powers of the natural elements of belladonna, datura, henbane, mandrake, and nightshades, used in vastly differing combinations and dosages, to create poisons and perfumes, as well as medications, aphrodisiacs and hallucinogens. Cassiopeia relies on them for clues to how past lives influence the present. The Museum of Mysteries was a good fast read, full of action and adventure, giving readers a larger-than-life super heroine. It's much easier to follow than many of Steve Berry's books since the historic references are not obscure. The ending neatly brings together the past and the present, visions and experience, all with a dash of magic potion. E. Dianne Campbell

    I was disappointed to be reading this book to find so much sex in it. The story seemed to revolve a bit too much around it in the last half. There is no need for discriptions to make the story. I would have rated it higher if the book had been clean. It spoiled the entire thing for me and I will not be reading more from these authors.
