5.0 out of 5 stars Good mystery with codes to solve as an added bonus., 8 Sept. 2012
This review is from: The Power of Three: Book 1 (Secret Breakers) (Paperback)
Described as the Da Vinci code for kids, this is the first in a series about three kids who are head hunted by former members of the Black Chamber at Bletchley Park to solve codes and find a lost "key" to solving the riddle of MS408 also known as th Voynich Manuscript (a real manuscript which was the inspiration for the book). Reasonably fast paced, with lots of different codes and a few drawings, it's plausible and interesting, and for anyone interested in code breaking, introduces lots of avenues to explore. Can be read by adults as well, although a couple of times I was ahead of them in solving the next stage - this didn't detract from the enjoyment of the story. I'm now intrigued to see where we're going with the story as MS408 has never been cracked!!!!
