Barnabas Tew and the Case of the Cursed Serpent by Columbkill Noonan

“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?

My Review

5 stars

Barnabas Tew is a Victorian detective with his assistant Wilfred Colby find themselves in Xibalba. It is the end of the Mayan world and time for Uncle Rabbit to resurrect the world again. But a couple of demons are determined to prevent this from happening. It’s going to be up to the bumbling Barnabas and Wilfred to bring Uncle Rabbit back to life and keep the world from going to hell, literally.

This is the first book I have read about Barnabas and Wilfred and I am hooked. Grumpy Barnabas falls into bad luck and clues alike. Thankfully he has Wilfred to save him and keep things on track. I loved the Mayan mythology and enjoyed the different legs of this odd journey.

I really enjoyed Baranbas Tew and the Case of the Cursed Serpent. It was a great mystery that kept me guessing and hoping that our heroes would survive. I do think that reading this series in order would give more to the story but I didn’t have too much of a problem following along. This is a great mystery and one that I recommend checking out. Now I have to go catch up on what I missed.

I received a complimentary copy of this book. I voluntarily chose to read and post an honest review.

I would like to thank Rachel’s Random Resources for the opportunity to read and share this book.
