This is a very adventurous and action packed read for kids and is an Indiana Jones like treasure hunting story. The main characters are thrown into a treasure hunt when an old professor mysteriously dies and they all fly out to his funeral in Berlin only to discover clues to hidden relics all the while being chased down by an ancient evil organization trying to find the same relics. It has history and facts tied in to the story about constellations and historical astronomers around the 15th century.

Not my favorite series. Too many characters and easy to forget stuff.

The ending was really good. It makes you want to read the second book. I think the beginning was a bit too slow. personally, it was quite boring in the middle. Anyways I do like this book. Also, you can try The Secret of droon series. Hope you like this book :))

I thought it was a good book to pick after Riordan's, but my 10 yo got disturbed by too much murders going on after a few chapters. I will wait another year or two till trying it with her again.

I think ten-year-old me would have really liked this book, with its puzzles, codes and historical secrets. Give it a shot! Also available as a streaming audiobook through Hoopla Digital.
