Oh and the Cipher, I wish I was better at puzzles because this looks like such fun. There were scrambled letters that formed words, transposition ciphers, Rosicrucian puzzles, or dots inside a grid that represented a letter and even a whole way of talking where the twins inserted an "AB" before the vowel in the word. Quite creative.
While I'm excited that there will be more books in the series, I really wish it wouldn't have ended on a cliffhanger. After 448 pages, I 'm kinda vested in the twins and Jaime's story and I would've liked a little resolution. Plus, given how detailed the world building was, I'm going to have to re-read the first book before I'm ready to even start the next one. Still, The Shadow Cipher is an excellent beginning to this new series.
