Synopsis: Warning: this description has not been authorized by Pseudonymous Bosch. As much as he'd love to sing the praises of his book (he is very vain), he wouldn't want you to hear about his brave 11-year old heroes, Cass and Max-Ernest. Or about how a mysterious box of vials, the Symphony of Smells, sends them on the trail of a magician who has vanished under strange (and stinky) circumstances. And he certainly wouldn't want you to know about the hair-raising adventures that follow and the nefarious villains they face. You see, not only is the name of this book secret, the story inside is, too. For it concerns a secret. A Big Secret.
My Take: So I wouldn't recommend reading this as in the book what I will be telling you is dangerous, maybe too dangerous for public pages. But I was never good at keeping secrets. If you love Adventure and Mystery this is definitely a book for you. It combines the thrill of a mystery and the fun of an adventure into a well-packed combo book. I would recommend it to kids between ages 8-18 as that would probably be the best place for the kids to like the book it's very subtle at first but as it goes on it cranks up the thrill to an almost unbearable pace. My favorite part of this book was the entire book there was no place that really stood out to me which means it's a very good book. The harder it is to find the favorite part, the better the book. Anyways, this would make an awesome Christmas or birthday present even for reluctant readers. I really have nothing against this book aside from wanting a better hook on the end of the book to make me more likely to want to read the next book.
