“For Queen, for Country, and for….Uncle Rabbit?”
Just when Barnabas and Wilfred thought the world was safe at last, along comes a new threat: the Mayan Lords of Death have hatched a plan to overthrow the natural order of things, involving a cursed serpent god, two untrustworthy sets of twins, and a dead bunny that must be resuscitated at all costs. Only Barnabas and Wilfred can possibly unravel the convoluted plot, but they face danger after danger as they attempt to do so. If they fail, up will be down and down will be up, and the evil Lords of Death will take over the heavens.
Do Barnabas and Wilfred have the courage, skill (and luck!) to save the world yet again?
Review Barnabas Tew and the case of the cursed serpent by Fany Van Hemelen:
What a funny and bizarre cosy mystery book about two Victorian detectives. This is the third in the series and it was my first read by this author. I am eager to read the other ones now.
Barnabas and Wilfred are back on an unexpected adventure in a completely new world. This time they have to get “Uncle Rabbit “ back to live. This creature is the only one who can change the events and our two friends have to help save the world. In Barnabas Tew and the case of the cursed serpent they have to solve the puzzle of the Mayan Gods . . Can they prevent that the Mayan Lords of Deaths destroy the world? The Victorian team has to do a lot of actions to have “Uncle Rabbit” back and if you want to know if they succeed you have to find out it yourself.
I didn’t read the previous books, so I can’t say if the characters have evolved, but I loved them now. It was so funny that Wilfred was in fact “ the leader” of the team. If you like to read something special, full of humour, mystery and surprising twists than just pick up this story and you will enter a great world.
I have to admit, this book is not for everyone, but if you love supernatural things or original stories, I think you have to discover this one!
This is a lighthearted and fast-paced, original tale that gives you an enjoyable time!
