I do not await eternity I am eternityEnglish I ve come across The Blackthorn Key series last year and I ve enjoyed reading it quite a lot Even though it s a middle grade series it has most of the things I like in a book historical fiction set in 17th century London and in this third instalment Paris , a little bit of magic and fantasy, puzzles and riddles it s like Da Vinci Code but well written , great and lovely characters Christopher is such a cutie and intelligent boy Tom is the loyal and down to earth best friend and Bridget the pigeon is quite funny and really well built villains These books mix History and whodunit novels perfectly well and it doesn t matter if you re not the intended audience I d recommend this book to children from 10 years old that you re gonna truly enjoy them.As I said, in this third book we move from London to Paris, and starts off a few days after the ending of the second instalment Mark of the Plague Christopher had solved the Great Plague enigma in London 1665 but he hasn t time to have tranquility cause Charles II of England wants him to solve a new riddle that involves an attempt to murder her sister Henrietta, married to Phillipe, Duke of Orl ans, the brother of Louis XIV Christopher, disguised as an English noble in the France Court, has to discover who the assassin is but his adventure alongside Tom and Sally lead to new riddles, secret treasures and puzzles connected to The Templars Even though the setting has always a special treatment in these books, I ve noticed as an Art Historian some little incongruences with the real 17th century Paris ex the description of Notre Dame is Viollet le Duc s ideal the Notre Dame we have now and not the real gothic cathedral but that doesn t bother me that much I especially enjoyed the approach of the Louvre s descriptions and the artworks involved in the mystery, which is gonna keep you on the edge of your seat until the end.I surely continue the series with the fourth instalment coming out this year P S I m not English, so if you see any mistakes let me know so I can correct them, please Espa ol Descubr la saga El Enigma Blackthorn el a o pasado y disfrut bastante su lectura Aunque es una saga m s middle grade tiene la mayor a de cosas que me gustan en un libro ficci n hist rica est n ambientados en el Londres del siglo XVII y esta tercera parte en Par s , un poquito de magia y fantas a, puzzles y acertijos es un poco como El C digo Da Vince pero bien escrito , personajes geniales y divertidos Christopher es un ni o muy cuqui e inteligente Tom es el mejor amigo ideal, leal y con los pies en la tierra y la paloma Bridget es bastante divertida y unos villanos muy bien construidos Estos libros mezclan perfectamente bien Historia y novelas de detectives y no importa que no entres dentro de la audiencia intencionada recomendar a estos libros a lectores a partir de los 10 a os que vas a disfrutar con su lectura.Como he dicho, en este tercer libro nos vamos de Londres a Par s, y empieza pocos d as despu s del final del segundo libro Mark of the Plague Christopher ha solucionado el enigma de la Gran Plaga de Londres 1665 pero no tiene tiempo para tener paz y tranquilidad porque el rey Carlos II de Inglaterra le pide que resuelva un nuevo misterio que gira en torno a un intento de asesinato de su hermana Enriqueta, casada con Felipe Duque de Orleans, el hermano del rey Luis XIV Christopher, disfrazado como un noble ingl s dentro de la Corte francesa, deber descubrir qui n es el asesino pero su aventura junto con Tom y Sally le llevar a nuevos misterios, acertijos, tesoros secretos y puzzles conectados con los Templarios.Aunque la ambientaci n tiene siempre un desarrollo muy especial en estos libros, he notado como historiadora del arte algunas peque as incongruencias con el verdadero Par s del siglo XVII por ejemplo, la descripci n de Notre Dame es el ideal de Viollet le Duc la Notre Dame que tenemos ahora y no la verdadera catedral g tica del momento pero no ha sido algo que me molestara mucho S que he disfrutado especialmente el acercamiento a las descripciones del palacio del Louvre y las obras de arte que est n presentes en el misterio, que adem s te har morderte las u as hasta el final.Voy a continuar seguro con esta saga este a o, en cuanto se publique el cuarto libro
