Publisher Description

Following a series of murders, an apothecary’s apprentice must solve puzzles and decipher codes in pursuit of a secret that could destroy the world in this “spectacular debut” (Kirkus Reviews, starred review).

“Tell no one what I’ve given you.”

Until he got that cryptic warning, Christopher Rowe was happy, learning how to solve complex codes and puzzles and creating powerful medicines, potions, and weapons as an apprentice to Master Benedict Blackthorn—with maybe an explosion or two along the way.

But when a mysterious cult begins to prey on London’s apothecaries, the trail of murders grows closer and closer to Blackthorn’s shop. With time running out, Christopher must use every skill he’s learned to discover the key to a terrible secret with the power to tear the world apart.

In his stunning debut novel, Kevin Sands brings readers on a heart-stopping adventure rich with suspense, mystery, and unforgettable characters.

Great series

This book is amazing! Plus the series is to. If you like mystery or promblom solving like puzzles this series will be great for you. I highly recommend this book to those people that have those interests

Ps if you like dinosaurs or survival games then get ark survival evolved! It is a great sandbox game that includes 3 very hard boss fights, dinosaurs that you can tame and ride, building houses, building houses on top of huge dinosaur like brontosaurus and some sea creatures plus more land creatures, building houses on redwood trees like tree forts, building bases, going into volcanos or caves to get crystals or obsidian, flying on birds in the sky and exploring biomes such as the artic. And crafting tools. The game has greatly increased game play and Graficts and game physics recently to 2018.
