Mark of the Plague by Kevin Sands and me


Mark of the Plague, by Kevin Sands, was a super gripping sequel to the the Blackthorn Key.
It was soooooooooo good! I think it is a great book for the ages 11 and up. There is a lot talk about death for the plague that hits London, but there is nothing too graphic. I would recommend this book to all my friends! I loved it so much.

This is a very exciting book that appeals to mostly middle grade readers who love to read mysteries. This story has so many twists and turns that just keep adding more and more to the book. I really loved how it completely captivates the reader in the best way. I just remember myself sitting there reading the book and being absolutely transported into the book as if I was there alongside the character as the story was unfolding.
