The Ancient Tripod of Peace
Genre: YA Mystery
Release Date: March 13th 2018

Teens Lexi and Gil face relic-thieving secret societies.

Plagued by loneliness in her Lake Erie Islands community, vegan Lexi hopes to make like-minded friends in high school. But her dad’s job is jeopardized when relics are stolen from his museum, changing her priorities. And she finds her new teachers’ eerie dislike of her troubling.

His dad in jail, cipher enthusiast and bacon-loving Gil hopes freshman year will provide a clean slate. Soon, he discovers secret codes within a Shakespearean play while paired with Lexi, pulling him into an ancient mystery.

With the official museum burglary investigation stalled, the mismatched teen sleuths join forces to try and crack the case. Lexi’s inquiries and Gil’s codes capture their teachers’ attention. But these teachers have the stolen Tripod of Peace, a powerful relic sought by rival secret societies. Caught in these societies’ crossfire as thieves wield an instrument of astounding power, Gil and Lexi are in danger.

The Ancient Tripod of Peace is the first book in novelist Kalen Cap’s Teen Thief-Catchers Series. If you like stories with artifact treasures, fighting secret societies, and spirited protagonists, you’ll enjoy this novel.

4 stars

Ancient Tripod of Peace was a very interesting book about a group of friends who stumble across the mystery of a lifetime. The great thing about this novel is the pacing, it's quick and stays fast-paced throughout the novel, keeping your attention hooked.

There are quite a few characters in the novel, but they were all very distinct with their personalities, and it wasn't hard to tell them apart and know who was being mentioned. I liked being able to see the teens grow throughout the novel, and I was happy that there were adults present in this novel (as so many YA books fail to include).

I would highly recommend this novel if you are a fan of mysteries. It has an intriguing plot and a wonderful cast of characters.
