Read The Assassin's Curse (The Blackthorn Key, #3) Online Free - Christopher Rowe is back and there are more puzzles, riddles, and secrets to uncover in this third novel of the award-winning Blackthorn Key series.
Wherever Christopher Rowe goes, adventure—and murder—follows. Even a chance to meet King Charles ends in a brush with an assassin.
All that’s recovered from the killer is a coded message with an ominous sign-off: more attempts are coming. So when Christopher’s code-breaking discovers the attack’s true target, he and his friends are ordered to Paris to investigate a centuries-old curse on the French throne. And when they learn an ancient treasure is promised to any assassin who succeeds, they realize the entire royal family is at stake—as well as their own lives.
In 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 murdered.

About two years ago, I tried a new series called The Blackthorn Key and it has become one of my favourite MG series. I shared it with students and they also loved it, it was voted the Book of the Year in my district. The second book was also excellent and the third does not disappoint.

Actual rating 4.5 stars.
This series continues to keep me interested. There is plenty of action, and puzzles, this one involving the Templars, which made me feel like I was watching a Dan Brown movie, in a very good way. I love Christopher, Tom and Sally as characters. This time we got to see them...

great continuation to the story...!
I liked it a little less than the first 2 books but only because
1) it turned into a DanBrown style book
2) and sort of removed teh apothecary(chemistry) feel or atmosphere of the first 2.
....Master Benedict is spinning in his grave!!! :)
I do enjoy DanBrown Book...
