In this exciting and humorous first book in the “Adventures of Nicky” series, Nicky Reed spends the summer on Talon island in St. Margaret’s Bay, Nova Scotia where he encounters talking ravens, the ghost of a Knight Templar who guards a fabulous treasure, a scheming villain, a magical mirror, a medicine woman and a mysterious one-eyed cat who maybe isn’t a cat at all.
In this hilarious second book of the “Adventures of Nicky” series, Nicky returns to Saskatchewan where he finds himself ensnared in several mysteries at once: another treasure to be found, a romance, a parrot with a gift for languages and spy-craft, UFOs, ghosts and almost more adventure than he can handle.
In this sharp-witted and delightful story of epic adventure, Nicky journeys with his raven friend Hugin to Slovakia to visit his relatives. His uncle Bojmír teaches him swordsmanship and his cousin Sebastián ensnares him and Hugin in a time-travel experiment that sends them to the year 1490. There, Nicky must survive the Inquisition and solve the mystery of the local Knights Templar. When he and Hugin time-travel once more they end up where they least expected.
