Mark of the Plague by Kevin Sands
Christopher Rowe is back and there are more puzzles, riddles, and secrets to uncover in this follow-up to The Blackthorn Key, which was the 2017/2018 Red Cedar Award winner.
The Black Death has returned to London, spreading disease and fear through town. A mysterious prophet predicts the city’s ultimate doom—until an unknown apothecary arrives with a cure that actually works. Christopher’s Blackthorn shop is chosen to prepare the remedy. But when an assassin threatens the apothecary’s life, Christopher and his faithful friend Tom are back to hunting down the truth, risking their lives to untangle the heart of a dark conspiracy.
And as the sickness strikes close to home, the stakes are higher than ever before… (Simon and Schuster)

I LOVED Mark of the Plague, so far it is my favourite book in the world. It is funny, suspenseful, and you feel like you're really in the story. If I could, I would give this book 50 stars. You should 100% read this book.
I like mark of the plague because of the suspense, the excitement like when Christopher makes the smoke your home. One my of my favorite parts is they find the treasure under the mattress. I really was surprised to find out that Henry was their father.This was a really great book.
