Video Review Brilliant Utterly brilliant I won an advanced reader s copy book from a GR giveaway and I am so happy I did This book is set to release on September 3rd 2015 which is when you should buy and read it To be blunt it s amazing and uite honestly one of my new favorite middle grades London 1665 A world of wigged gentlemen drunkard peasants and orphaned children Christopher Rowe is an orphan at Cripplegate Orphanage when he impresses an elite member of the apothecaries guild and is then taken in as an apprentice to Master Apothecary Benedict Blackthorn Christopher learns all kinds of remedies potions and lethal poisons in his master s care skills that will save his life than a few times Whispers of murder are spreading through the streets and London s apothecaries seem to be The Cult of The Archangel s target Christopher is set on a perilous journey involving conspiracies codes secret alchemists puzzles and pigeons Who doesn t like pigeons Kevin Sands writing is superb This book is written in 1st person which to me can sometimes sound amateur if not done right but Sands does it right The mix of real history and events is blended well and keeps it interesting however I m very surprised there was no mention of the plague that hit London in 1665 That sort of feels like a missed opportunity but nevertheless the history that was given was welcome Edit The plague is mentioned by the end of the book I completely recommend this book to anyone who loves to read about apothecaries alchemists potions poisons and anyone else who likes middle grade I look forward to see what Kevin Sands publishes in the future

Kevin Sands Ø 8 Read & Download review µ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF Ø Kevin Sands Read & Download The Blackthorn Key Een historisch jeugdboek vol spannende puzzels ingewikkelde codes en een vleugje magie De sleutel van SleedoornKrachtige brouwsels en een mysterieuze sekteLonden 1665 De 14 jarige Christopher is in de leer bij meester apotheker Sleedoorn die hem leert codes te ontcijferen puzzels op te lossen en met simpele ingrediënten krachtige brouwsels te maken. This is a fantastic fast paced historical mystery and I honestly did not want to put it down Aimed at middle graders but definitely one that any reader could enjoy The Blackthorn Key is the complete package mysterious puzzles and codes thrilling and suspenseful action history and science and exceptional friendships Set in 1665 in the city of London this book introduces us to Christopher Rowe our clever hero who is apprenticed as an apothecary to Master Benedict Blackthorn Having rescued Christopher from an unknown future in the orphanage Master Benedict acts as a compassionate father and mentor to this boy who is eager to learn everything he can about potions puzzles and books The baker s son Tom makes a wonderful friend and sidekick being constantly dragged into Christopher s little schemes and experiments These two make a great pair and I really enjoyed every minute of their adventures with one another When a menacing cult begins to systematically murder the city s apothecaries Christopher is determined to get to the bottom of this mystery before he finds himself the next victim He must use all of the knowledge he s gleaned from his master along with plenty of courage and ingenuity to solve the biggest mystery of all and escape imminent danger There are bad guys galore and Christopher must learn who he can truly trust I must say there is a lot of page turning action in this book The Blackthorn Key gives us a snapshot of a piece of history that is uite informative but not at all mundane or too mystifying for the middle grade reader The potions and puzzles should interest anyone that enjoys science or magic However one bit of warning from this reader there is a fair amount of violence and danger in this book that could be disconcerting to a younger middle school child Some gruesome descriptions of the murders and other brutal assaults may be okay for the mature middle grader but I hesitate to recommend this to the complete gamut of grades 3 7 readers as noted on the back of the book But as always parents use caution you know what your children can handle This is definitely a book worth reading and has huge potential for this debut author I would love to see a seuel to this book I think Kevin Sands left just enough open at the conclusion for this to be a possibility at least I hope so 45 starsI received an advanced reader s copy of this book from Goodreads and Aladdin Books in a first reads giveaway in exchange for my honest opinion

It is never the tool that decides It s the hands and the heart of the one who wields it As always my reviews are based off of my true and honest opinion and I do my best to keep all reviews spoiler free Christopher Rowe is an apprentice to the apothecary Benedict Blackthorn He s learning not only how to create recipes but how to make and decipher codes However before he knows it Christopher Rowes life comes crashing down and now its in danger as well Together Christopher and his good and loyal friend Tom must figure out a secret worth killing forI absolutely loved this book It was almost impossible to put down It reminded me a lot of National Treasure with its codes and puzzles not to mention being chased and by both the good and bad guys Parts of it made me cry and feel for Christopher It also reminded me of adventurehidden objects games that I enjoy playing from time to time because Christopher needs to use his knowledge of codes and puzzles plus be resourceful with the items he has on andor around him I fell in love with the characters and the plot It was easy to follow and immerse myself in This book is a first to a series and without a cliffhanger and most things wrapped up I m not sure what to expect in the next book which leaves any number of wonderful possibilities
