amazing book!

Christopher Rowe loves puzzles and codes, put anything down in front of him and he will try and try at it forever. That is until he receives a cryptic warning...

A mysterious cult has been slowly making its way through London. Killing apothecaries from all over. So after his own dear master is killed, Christopher is forced on a mission to figure out who it is and maybe save London while he's at it.

It is never the tool that decides. It's the hands-and the heart-of the ones who wields it. _Kevin Sands, The Blackthorn Key quote


This book was absolutely amazing. I think you would really like this book if your in mystery novels (which I most certainly am!). There is definitely a lot of bloody gory stuff that is described. So if you aren’t fine with that stuff I wouldn’t recommend this book to you. But I really enjoyed it! I loved every second of it! Five stars!

I think The Blackthorn Key is geared more to the age 11 and up because of the violent parts. It is about a boy named Christopher who gets lead on the mission to discover who his master’s killer was. It is really captivating and a great story by Kevin Sands. And I recommend this book to everyone my age because I really think that it would be quite hard not to like this book.

I can’t wait to read the next two books in The Blackthorn Key series!
