Dear Listeners,

If this were a normal description for a normal audiobook, I would tell you that this story is fantastic! Gripping! (According to their blurbs, all books are fantastic and gripping.) You'd meet the brave young heroes, Cass and Max Ernest*. And you'd hear about how a mysterious box of vials, the symphony of smells, sends them on the trail of a magician who has vanished under strange (and Stinky) circumstances.

If this were a normal audiobook, I would brag about the hair-raising adventures that follow - about the brain-twisting riddles Cass and Max Ernest solve and the nefarious villains they face. But, sadly, I can't tell you about any of those things: they might make you want to listen to the book.

You see, not only is the name of this book secret, the story is, too. For it concerns a secret - a big secret -that has been tormenting people like you for over...oh no! Did I just mention the Secret? Then it's too late.

I'm afraid nothing will stop you now. Listen to the book if you must. But, please, tell no one.

With apologies,

Pseud. Bosch

Listener Opinions

    " This was a fun read-aloud. The narrator's intrusions, which might've been annoying had I been reading to myself, were entertaining when I could use them to pique my daughter's suspense. (It might've helped, too, that we read intermittently, rather than every day.) I loved the use of synesthesia, though I suspect its representation here was tweaked for plot purposes. I also appreciated that the material sometimes posed an intellectual stretch for my 8-yr-old, without venturing into "mature" subject matter. She would probably give it 5+ stars. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Eviero | 2/9/2014

    " I agree with a lot of the reviews...written in a style very similar to Lemony Snickett... use of dark sort of humour in the narration. Not the most intelligent mystery story line I have ever read, but it was simple enough for kids to understand. I would recommend it to my students that like the Series of Unfortunate Events books... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Megan Mkrtschjan | 2/5/2014

    " The narrator was really the highlight of this book! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sharifa Abukari | 1/19/2014

    " It was an amazing mystery about a young girl named Casandra who is always prepared. she runs ito this secret society and becomes entangled in a mess that she was in long before she was born. I recomend that everyone with a taste for wanting more READ THIS BOOK "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sara Drazkowski | 1/14/2014

    " I immediately thought of lemony snicket when I read this story; the way the narrator talks to the reader, the use of words, the secrecy, etc. I know many of my 5th graders have loved this story, I thought it was okay. I will continue with this series just so I can talk to them about the books. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Natalie | 1/9/2014

    " A fun quick read. Not sure if I will pick up the second, but still a fun read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lina | 10/28/2013

    " I wonderful children's book that at a first glance thought was going to be horrible. Well, the plot is horrible, but the quirky author and entertaining writing style make up for it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Joan | 1/3/2013

    " I'm sure this book/series has its following. I was not caught up in the mystery and intrigue. Possible the written version with codes included would have helped. "

About the Author
Author Pseudonymous Bosch

Pseudonymous Bosch is the anonymous pseudonymous author of the Secret Series. Not much is known about him other than that he has a passionate love of chocolate and cheese and an equally passionate hatred of mayonnaise. Rumors of Boschian sightings are just as frequent and about as reliable as reports of alien abductions. If you ever meet anyone claiming to be Pseudonymous himself he is almost certainly an impostor. The real Pseudonymous is said currently to be hiding in a cave in a remote jungle (although there are contrary reports that he is somewhere in Greenland).
