Protecting the Legacy has its price.

The hunt for the first relic in Copernicus’ legacy has sent Wade, Darrell, Lily, and Becca to the far reaches of the world and put them in serious danger. But they never imagined joining this quest would come at such a high cost. Sara Kaplan—Darrell and Wade’s mother—has been kidnapped by the conniving Galina Krause.

Which means the stakes couldn’t be higher for the Kaplan family as they race across cold desolate landscapes, speedboat through narrow canals, and sprint through busy city streets in search of the sought-after relic called the Serpens. Along the way, they meet another network of Guardians that may help them complete their journey, but will the kids get to Sara in time to save her life?

Filled with more riddles, puzzles, and secret histories, The Serpent’s Curse is the second suspenseful book in bestselling author Tony Abbott’s exciting Copernicus Legacy series.

Quotes & Awards

  • “With engaging characters, a globe-trotting plot and dangerous villains, it is hard to find something not to like. Equal parts edge-of-your-seat suspense and heartfelt coming-of-age.”

    Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

  • “Fast-paced and clever, the novel reads like a mashup of the National Treasure films and The Da Vinci Code.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “The author masterfully pulls all the threads together and creates an engaging thriller enhanced by codes, puzzles, exotic locales, and narrow escapes.”

    School Library Journal

  • “With word games and rebus puzzles to spare, this whirling first entry in a projected six-part series from Abbott has international intrigue, fast-paced action, entertaining characters, and a healthy helping of science history.”


  • “This lively escapade will suit fans of the 39 Clues series who are looking for a new puzzle to solve.”

    Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

  • “MacLeod Andrews narrates the second installment in the Copernicus Legacy series with subtle expression. Wade, Darrell, Lily, and Becca work with Wade’s father to try to rescue Wade’s kidnapped stepmother. Andrews maintains a steady pace as the youngsters flee from Hawaii to San Francisco, solving puzzles along the way. Andrews’ voices aren’t always easy to distinguish from one another, but plot is more the point here. Listeners will be engaged as Wade and his friends become involved in conspiracies that are much larger than they ever imagined.”
