I really liked the integration of magic tricks as puzzles that compliments the room and story. There are plenty of puzzles to get through which made this an intense game but it was clever, original and fun.

A really interesting setting - exploring a missing magicians flat. awesome puzzles involving magic tricks and one of the closest rooms to failing! (24 seconds left on the clock) solid room but overshadowed by 2 tickets 2 ride with heavier tech and theming.

This room won us over with almost the very first thing we did after entering. It has a profusion of refreshingly original, nicely-implemented puzzles that all build on the theme and the story.
According to the plot, you're searching for the lost secrets of a vanished conjuror, with an impending building demolition providing the time limit. This is a convenient theme since any manner of puzzles and locks fit plausibly in a magician's storeroom. But the room design takes the concept and runs with...
A game that literally puts some magic back into escape rooms. This is a tough escape room with lots of puzzles and plenty of challenge - possibly too much for a lot of teams. Take a biggish group along and keep your focus and you'll have plenty of fun.
Despite the sheer volume of puzzles, I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this game to newbies, provided they have a larger team. For enthusiasts, it’s a solid room and a good choice if you like a plethora of puzzles.
We have to solve the mystery of the disappearance of a top magician, and find his book of secrets before they are destroyed.
The Book of Secrets is a masterclass in escape room design. Quite literally, it takes you on a whistle-stop tour of three different ways to design an escape room, yet rather than feel disjointed, somehow it all fits together like magic…
Next stop in our London Escape-Room-Tour was a big contrast to the polished and high-tech game we did in the morning. But could the “Book of Secrets” of “Clue Adventures” in London hold its own and stand the comparison? Find out in our Review.

The Book of Secrets escape room has magic galore and it’s a delight to complete their puzzles. Some are variants of puzzles we’ve seen before and some were unique but they managed to stick to the theme incredibly well which is not something that happens in all rooms.
Chock-full of puzzles, a room where if it isn’t nailed down (and maybe if it is) it’s a clue. Great build, wonderful host, and originality of theme. Just a little over-stuffed.
