The Assassin’s Curse (The Blackthorn Key, #3)

Review From User :

Another amazing addition the the Blackthorn Key series. This time after saving the King of england from poisoning. Christopher, Tom, and Sally are sent to Paris under fake names and titles to stop the assassins and protect the royals. Clues, codes, danger, and humor. The perfect combination.

I found this to be another great read. Where as I did start to predict some of the answers before hand. I think that is simply because I am starting to understand the way the author thinks, but I would not call the book at all predictable. There are more than enough twists and turns to make you look twice.

The character development is really coming together. Christopher who always sticks to his morals and would gladly give his life for his friends. Tom who is very loyal, but has no problem telling Christopher when hes being foolish, also easily appeased with food. Sally who always find the bright side of things. Where Christopher is book smart she is street smart. Making them a great team.

The book was impossible for me to put down. I found it hurt to put it down even for a few minutes while i went to get myself some coffee. I am so excited for the 4th book which I currently have on the way and I hope for many more books to come.


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.
