Hist fic world building is rustic has medieval flair and the tone is vividly portrayed given it s time mild fade to blackoff screen gore Characters and relationships ie bromance feel organic However there isn t a strong female presence There is a pigeon named Bridget You will have animalpet feels Story is self contained though part of a series and is courageously resilient full of hilarious tomfoolery and painfully tragic Initial Thoughts It seems like stories with animal sidekicks will without fail garner 4 stars from me NO COMPLAINTS HEREEEEEE Full disclosure I received an advanced reader copy of The Blackthorn Key from the Book Blog Ontario Meet Up I extend thanks to Simon and Schuster for providing me with the opportunity to review this bookview spoilerAfterthoughtsPremiseChristopher Rowe a once orphan now budding apprentice to Master Benedict Blackthorn is plunged into the gritty underbelly of the alchemical world when a string of murders claim the lives of prominent apothecaries With the perpetrator at large and signs pointing to the Blackthorn shop Christopher finds himself with the key to uncovering the mystery behind the disturbing deaths and the scheme at the heart of it allSettingLondon 1665 cobblestone roads stone mausoleums imposing cathedrals dusty wooden shelves lined with material knick knacks and a bird house for the greatest avian side kick ever Sands has crafted an explosive literally alchemical historical fiction with medieval flair and a tone that vividly portrays its time The story doesn t inundate readers considering target audience with religious diatribes that detract from the cat and mouse narrative NarrationI ll admit I don t usually do hist fic because the past is blergh interpret that how you will The Blackthorn Key I found was packed with intrigue and credit goes to the story the adventurous and impeccable pacing and the penmanship to weave a page turning experience This book elicits a range of feels it s courageously resilient full of hilarious tomfoolery and painfully tragicThe story made me cry If that s not a powerful thingthen I don t know what isThe coolest thing is that readers can for the most part unlock the puzzles before going forward as if it were an interactive experience The narrative provides the codes and kinks to uncover the mystery before you turn the page Note it s not a gimmick The exposition pulls you into the eyes and world of Christopher Rowe and connects readers to the conflict in a smart wayThat being said the writing may not be for the faint of heartWhat I will say in terms of gore is this as a kid I was immersed in a lot of violence through videogames and multimedia Am I suggesting that this book will be fine for all MG kids Not at all This book has bleak as shit moments but you don t witness the brutality It s like a fade to black This is just a discretionary warning to those incapable of stomaching the high stakes game of survival It is in the context of its time and not as censored as things seem to be based on its intended audienceCharactersChristopher Rowe is simply precious and I adored his voice He s emotionally invested to a life that has given him than just borrowed time There is so much to root for as the story promotes the cultivation of adolescent experimentation and ingenuity Christopher isn t a special snowflake he s not the only one who could have unlocked the mystery The puzzles are his to crack because he s the product of initiative and work ethic and his development is one keenly demonstrated by action Subtext learning is important but you should also blow things up in the processThe bromance is sublime Christopher and Tom are like two peas in a pod Their friendship can easily be mistaken as blood related due to loyalty and it s wholly organic I d call Tom a comic relief but that would short sell his importance to ChristopherBridget is one badass scene stealer This pigeon deserves all the love and then some If you appreciate the value of Manchee for Todd s character in the Chaos Walking Trilogy Patrick Ness you will surely love every feather of this flappy birdIf there s one thing that can be considered amiss it s that there s no real female presence Aside from Tom s siblings and his mother the only female with potential of a role is an orphan girl with a line or two The implication is that this can be considered a book about boys for boys It s so much than thatOverallThis book punched me in the face with feels And then did it again and again While this first installment is a self contained story it s seuel explores the Great Plague of London in 1665 You don t need to worry about cliffhangers So yeah if there s one middle grade title you should considering reading in 2015 it s
