Secrets of the Silver Lion is a novel based on Carmen Sandiego Netflix series and is written by Emma Otheguy.
From the bustling streets of New York City to the cobblestones of Seville and the silver mines high in the Andes Mountains of Bolivia, Carmen is off on another quest to stop VILE in this heart-pounding caper full of twists and turns!
For centuries, the magnificent Throne of Felipe has stood with two empty spaces beside its famous silver arrow—spaces where the silver castle and lion should have been. And now, with the recent discovery of the silver castle within a secret vault in Seville, Spain, the hunt is on for the third silver icon. With all three pieces in the place, the throne will be enormously valuable—making it a hot item on V.I.L.E.'s radar. Now it's up to Carmen and crew to find the silver lion before VILE does, and protect the throne from winding up in the wrong hands.
