Huber Hill and the Brotherhood of Cornado is sequal to Huber Hill and the Dead Man's Treasure. I also think thier will be more to come. I have not read Dead Man's Treasure but would like too. Brotherhood of Cornado can stand alone.
Huber Hill gets an email from Yesenia Ferrero who is 14 from Salamamca, Spain. She says her Grandfather Carlos Salazar knew his grandfather and he knows also who stole the Dead Man's Treasure. He can help them get the treasure back.
So they arrange for a contest abroad and three winners are picked. Huber, his sister Hannah and friend Scott won the contest. Everyone thought they cheated and of course it was rigged to get them over thier to get the treasure back.
Thier Spanish teacher Mr Mendoza has decided to come with them, The school and parents insist on it.
With the help of thier new friends Carlos & Pincho (inspired by Don Quixote and Sancho Panza), Alejandro, and Yesenia. They are on track to find out where the Brotherhood has the treasure and what their plan is.
Fausto, Matón, and Susurro are the three Kings of the Brotherhood of Cornado. They always wear a mask so they can't be identified. Thier are a lot of men in the Brotherhood of Cornado. They have kidnapped people and hurt them to find more treasure and keep them in the dungeon of a castle.
This novel is funny at times, its a adventure. They have to solve some riddles and go find some hidden keys before they can find the treasure. They have a hard time telling who is friend or foe at times.
Carlos the grandfather sometimes is very smart and tough then he can't remember what is going on. Sometimes he fakes being crazy. After a bull fighting contest he jumps in the ring with oxygen tank and takes shirt off and fights the security guards like they are the bull and he is matador.
Thier is a spy who is giving some information to Carlos and Pincho. He is the one that sends the teens all over Salamamca. The group stays in the University library break room at night after Carlos is in jail and the Brotherhood have kidnapped Mr. Mendoza.
It keeps your attention and I want to read the next novel in the series.
I was given this ebook to read in exchange for honest review from Netgalley.
