I want those back AnywayThe story was great as usual with some pretty good humor to keep things light I still wish there wasn't so much darkness towards the ending Seeing a friend go getting us hopeful and happy and ripping that away Maybe it's because I love Christopher and Tom and Sally like they're my friends and have read about them recently than any other series's but I can say that the ending is cruel than anything I had readYes I know NO one was thrown into hell shut up Riordan but it was a different sort of dark I could feel the dread of Christopher I could feel the characters eyes filling with fear and terror and their heart speeding up and the utter coldness What can be done? I think that's worse than anything that Riordan ever pulledNot to mention what happened to SallyBut there were plenty good points Tom learning how to use a sword Christopher getting noticed by a king Sally even meeting her grandmother and getting her approval and blessing Plus the whole thing with the Templars That was awesome Please please please bring that back in the future I really cannot wait to see what Kevin does with that Ah that gets me so excited

The Assassin's CurseIn who succeeds they realize the entire royal family is at stake as well as their own livesIn the third heart pounding installment of the award winning Blackthorn Key series Christopher Tom and Sally face new codes puzzles and traps as they race to find the hidden treasure before someone else is murdere Reader thoughts I liked this book Another good Blackthorn mysteryI'm getting a much better sense of who the characters are Thomas is bigger than I kept imagining He's big enough to act as a guard or to swordfight or to pick Christopher up from a fall out a window um hypothetically Christopher is the devious thinker who really gets into trouble than anyone shouldIn this book the two friends plus Sally save the king and cause havoc in Paris including stealing a painting from the Louvre The book is a lot like National Treasure mixed with spying and sword fights and chases down dark alleysWriter thoughts I love that KS chose to have so many of the clues either left by Blackthorn or investigated or improved by Blackthorn It makes the mystery seem much personal and the stakes higher Readers care about Christopher solving the clues and mystery just because his master worked on the problem
