An Ateban Cipher Novel. Hachette Australia, 2018. ISBN 9780734417695
(Age: 10-12) Highly recommended. "Gabe and his companions journey to a remote mountain citadel where they learn the secret of the mysterious encrypted book that he has been tasked with protecting. But their enemies are close behind them, and new dangers lie ahead.
As Eddie seeks to regain his crown, and Merry and Gwyn race to free their father, Gabe will discover the answer to his own great mystery - his true identity." Publisher
This is the second book in the series and ideally they should be read in order. The book is full of adventure, mystery and danger and sure to be a hit with children aged between 10-12. The story takes up from the cliffhanger that ended the previous book, The book of secrets and answers a number of questions. With so many twists and turns throughout the plot and the connections to medieval times the reader will be kept on the edge of their seats. Strong lead characters representing both genders and resonating with Robin Hood and Rangers apprentice what is not to like about this series. A must have for the collection.
