Review:

Praise for the Copernicus Legacy series: "Full of mystery and intrigue."--Ridley Pearson, New York Times bestselling author of the Kingdom Keeper series

"The Copernicus Legacy takes you on a fantastical journey that is as eye-opening as it is page-turning. With mysteries hiding behind secrets coded in riddle, this book is like a Dan Brown thriller for young readers. The further you get, the more you must read!"--Angie Sage, New York Times bestselling author of the Septimus Heap series

"The Copernicus Legacy has it all: A secret code, priceless relics, murderous knights, a five-hundred-year-old mystery, and a story full of friendship, family, humor, and intelligence."--Wendy Mass, New York Times bestselling author of The Candymakers and Every Soul a Star

"With engaging characters, a globe-trotting plot and dangerous villains, it is hard to find something not to like. Equal parts edge-of-your-seat suspense and heartfelt coming-of-age."--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

"Fast-paced and clever, the novel reads like a mashup of the National Treasure films and The Da Vinci Code."--Publishers Weekly

"With word games and rebus puzzles to spare, this whirling first entry in a projected six-part series from Abbott has international intrigue, fast-paced action, entertaining characters, and a healthy helping of science history."--Booklist

"The author masterfully pulls all the threads together and creates an engaging thriller enhanced by codes, puzzles, exotic locales, and narrow escapes."--School Library Journal

"Tony Abbott is such an amazing storyteller, Copernicus should've named a star after him. With codes to crack, clues to unravel, and bad guys to outrun, this is one thrilling, smart, and fun read! I can't wait for the next chapter is this stellar new series."--Chris Grabenstein, New York Times bestselling author

"A sprawling and fast-paced adventure in the great tradition of Robert Ludlum, Ian Fleming, and other masters whose tales loom larger than life. Readers are in for a real treat."--David Lubar, author of Flip, Wizards of the Game, and Hidden Talents

"This lively escapade will suit fans of the 39 Clues series who are looking for a new puzzle to solve."--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
