There is a strange bookcase at the end of a chapel's corridor that is pitch black, save for a few lanterns lighting the way. As you approach the bookcase, you notice six conspicuous books with unique colors. These unique colors being: red, purple, white, gold, blue, and green. A note is laying in front of the books, telling you of a secret passage that activates when you pull one of the books. The note also reads "The location is in the titles". The six books have the following titles.

  • The Church's Hidden Archives

  • Purifying in The Tub

  • Bat out of Hell

  • Vowels with Noah: AEIOU

  • God's Word is True

  • The Devil's Tempting Lies

Which book do you pull to find the passage and why?

Hint 1

Upon closer inspection, the note seems to emphasize that the middle four titles are more important

  • $\begingroup$ FWIW I thought the title, backstory, and book names were really interesting and drew me in. Would have been nice to go a notch or two more difficult and incorporate all six books into a solution. But good start! $\endgroup$

1 Answer 1


It seems the book to pull to find the passage is:

God's Word is True - the blue book.

Because 'The location is in the titles' and:

the last letters of the four central books spell b-l-u-e. (Tub-Hell-AEIOU-True)
