This book was just as good if not better than the first in my opinion. Our main character Christopher is in the middle of a plague. The story centers around him, his best friend Tom, and the orphan girl they take in, Sally.

There is a prophet who is predicting the next plague victim and Galen an apothecary who seems to have discovered the cure and can prove it. But someone is trying to murder Galen, the prophet seems off to Christopher, and worse of all, the prophet predicts that someone Christopher loves is next. To top it off his former master had left behind a treasure for him to find, after figuring out the clues of course.

The book was full of adventure and mystery. More puzzles and codes. Christopher is obviously a really smart kid to figure out everything that he does. Sally is such a happy spirit to be around she lightens the mood and that great. However my favorite character in both books is Tom. He is suppose to be the big giant looking kind of a guy, but who is a 'mouse'. Hes loyal to a fault and very funny in an accidental kind of way.

I would like to quote my favorite moment in this book. Tom had been poisoned and as they say in the book it had addled his brain. They were on the run from some guards who were literally throwing weapons at them.
"Christopher," Tom said. "Can I please rest for a minute?"
"They're throwing axes at us, Tom," I said.
"I'll rest later, then."
"Good idea," I muttered.
This was to funny, picture the trio running through the back alleys of london while guards are chasing them and throwing axes at them and poor, sick, addled brained Tom wanting nothing more then to take a nap, oblivious to the danger around him.

Anyways a part of me knew going into this book that someone they trusted would betray them. That Christopher would have to use his brain to get out of it, and still in the end there would be help from those who cared about him. The ending made me cry, but in a good way. I'm looking forward to book 3 of this series.

How awesome (and ransom) is it that the third book in this trilogy is being released tomorrow?

Master apothecary Benedict Blackthorn died in the first book, leaving his home and business to his apprentice, orphan Christopher Rowe, who is stymied because he is not licensed. It's London, 1665, and a plaque descends. More than a thousand people are dying every day, when a plaque doctor begins to build popular support against the ruling magistrates and a miraculous cure is developed. Chris smells a rat, and with this two trusty friends (Tom the baker's son) and Sally, another orphan, tries to gather the proof needed to thwart his plans. I liked this one better than the first installment, which I thought suffered from unexplained leaps of faith to solve puzzles. Here, author Kevin Sands provides fewer puzzles and the solutions are more believable. Nice ending. ( )

Kinda slower than the first, but still entertaining and fun. ( )
