Product description

A second dazzling round of magic, intrigue, alchemy and danger: think The Da Vinci Code in 1660s London. Follow the clues. Crack the code. Stay alive. Except – that’s easier said than done when the Black Death comes to town! Young apothecary Christopher Rowe knows the signs all too well. (Blood, boils and burning fever.) It’s just too bad he doesn’t know a cure. The dreaded sickness is rampaging through London, killing rich and poor alike. That is, until a stranger arrives with a miracle medicine. He might just be the city’s saviour. So why is an assassin trying to strike him down?

  • A second richly thrilling dose of history, alchemy and magic
  • The Blackthorn Key was shortlisted for the Waterstones Prize
  • Brilliantly evokes the sights and atmosphere of 1660s London
  • Fantasy, mystery and a survival drama – all in one book!

“Sands does not shy away from exploring the mesmerizing, gritty, and often terrifying details …. Another stunner.” Kirkus Reviews
