The Mysterious Benedict Society
Riddle of Ages
by Trenton Lee Stewart

Flap Copy Description:

After starring in three adventures, the inimitable quartet of Reynie, Sticky, Kate, and Constance haven't had a mission together in some time. But with the arrival of a new Society member - and a new threat - they must reunite to face dilemmas more dangerous than ever before, including the return of the villainous Mr. Curtain and his Ten Men a a formidable enemy with a mystifying ability to track their every move.

In its triumphant return, the Society encounters all-new challenges, but the series' trademark sly humor, sweet camaraderie, hairbreadth escapes, and perplexing puzzles are all as engaging as ever.

My Thoughts:

With the introduction of a new character, Tai Li, Trenton Lee Stewart recently released a new addition to his The Mysterious Benedict Society - The Riddle of Ages. I've read all the books in the series, and was anxious to read this one too. While I enjoyed it, I found it not quite as intriguing as the previous books. That being said, it reads more like a young adult novel, rather than middle grade. (Maybe that's because the cast of characters has grown up a bit!) If you're a fan of The Mysterious Benedict Society, be sure to check out The Riddle of Ages!
