The Blackthorn Key (Prebound)
Set in the 1600s, this is a fast paced, action-packed adventure with truly memorable characters, especially the apothecary’s apprentice, who solves puzzles and riddles, but sometimes blurts out funny, middle ages humor - this will resonate with Percy Jackson fans. Loved by Maureen— Maureen Palacios
Exciting, fast-paced story of Christopher, the apprentice to an apothecary who is involved in several mysterious deaths. One of the best kids' novels I've read this year. I felt like I was in their world for days afterwards!
