Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Start to a Promising Series! The Forbidden Stone is about four friends who unwittingly find themselves in a heart-pounding treasure hunt. Wade and Darrell are stepbrothers who, along with Wade?s dad (Roald), cousin (Lily), and her friend (Becca), travel to Germany for the funeral of Wade?s honorary uncle (Henry). Not-really-uncle Uncle Henry was Roald?s erstwhile professor and benefactor of Wade?s most cherished possession?a 17th-century star chart. Sound like a run-of-the-mill story? Well, Abbott keeps you on your toes, starting from the very first chapter. Check out these plot peeks: 1. Uncle Henry sends Roald a coded message the day he dies. 2. The only way to decode the message is to check Wade?s star chart, which Uncle Henry sent him for his seventh birthday. 3. A building collapses in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and an oil tanker sinks in the Mediterranean all around the same time as Uncle Henry?s coded message. 4. When they get to the funeral in Germany, strange people are watching their every move. Not since the multi-author, multi-platform, multi-series 39 Clues saga have I been as excited to start another adventure series like this ? and that?s saying a lot, considering the 39 Clues books and authors are world renowned and beloved. Pick up The Forbidden Stone and mark on your calendars the release dates of the rest of the books. (The first novella, Wade and the Scorpion?s Claw, released this summer, and the second book, The Serpent?s Curse, came out just a couple of weeks ago!) Join Wade, Darrell, Lily, and Becca for the adventure of a lifetime and discover more about the Copernicus Legacy.
