Booklist - 02/15/2020 In the town of Windrose, the weather is subject to sudden bizarre shifts and the ground produces abrupt expulsions of foul-smelling natural gas. At the local camp, a group of self-described social Cs, Ds, and Fs come together to engage in the town’s local industry: pursuit of the legendary Windrose treasure. This diverse group—each member has a distinct skill set—follows the clues, puzzles, and hidden paths to the soon-to-be-abandoned concrete castle of the town’s benefactor, Henry Merriweather, pathfinder extraordinaire. Wits and perseverance do indeed carry them through a time-traveling twist and even beyond the treasure chest itself, straight toward volume 2 of the Pathfinders Society series. The structure renders the puzzle-solving more of a vicarious thrill than a race with the characters to figure things out, but many of the tricks are Indiana Jones–style clever, and the thematic joy of searching is hard to resist. Characters’ personalities are easily accessible and each is visualized in clean, elegant strokes, while the backgrounds are lavishly detailed, most appropriate for a story about discovering secrets in strange places. - Copyright 2020 Booklist.
