Disappointing that the bad guys did an on page murder of one of the minor good guys Yes, the bad guys are one hundred present ruthless asshats, and yes, it was well disguised as a possible kidnapping But having my 10 year old ask So, what, then they KILLED him , well, that was than I really wanted out of a middle grade YA tale.
This is one of my favorite books ever It is full of adventure, suspense and thriller I totally recommend everyone to read this Such a masterpiece Totally worth buying You can see how faithful and loyal Evan is to Amy, how Dan and Atticus value their friendship and many others But the last sentence on the book is totally striking Warning Spoiler Who would ve thought that Amy and Dan s father was alive all this time, eh Not to mention he s one of the Vespers There s also a high possibility he s Ve [...]
I hate, HATE books that are written just for the sake of raking in the money HATE Unfortunately, the 39 Clues franchise seems to be heading down that path While I enjoyed the 39 Clues series, the spin off series, Vespers vs Cahills is just plain annoying The plot is stretched beyond reason and is SO CONTRIVED What could have been wrapped up in one book is now being dragged over five It s ridiculous When the first book ended, Vesper One had Nellie, Fiske, Alastair, Ted, Reagan, Natalie and Phonei [...]

The twist in this one was new and enjoyable Let s see how it pans out Oh and by the way, how cute is Atticus

Okay, so these are pretty much my favorite books EVER besides the Hunger Games I own EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THEM, plus the Black Book of Buried Secrets and the Agent Handbook So here I was, strolling along in BB, when I see it, in it s trophy on the shelf I m like, Oh wow, Oh wow, I can t believe I haven t read that yet So long story short I buy the book, read it in that same night, and by the time I m done I ve literally exploded.Thought 4 Those stinkin , stupid Wyomings I hate them so much.Though [...]
I m a huge fan of this series but I seem to like the other authors work better than Watson s She is a talented writer but she tries to build a suspense that readers aren t looking for in The 39 Clue, They want constant action scenes and chases Watson has this and the scenes she writes for them are great but I just wish she would cut to the chase She spends a little much time having Amy and Dan solving puzzles On a positive note, there were many parts of this book I liked I wanted to cheer out [...]
Have you ever watched Desperate Housewives It s funny and ridiculous I find it hard to watch when the plot turns serious and the characters take themselves seriously I watch it to laugh and if you take out the laughter then it s no fun The Cahills vs the Vespers takes itself too seriously and the fun of the series is gone for me At least in this book, Dan has most of his wise cracking ways back however, he now has a dark side oooh and people are getting killed and shot while the kids are pulling [...]
Watson continues her trend of being one of the best authors in this multi author series She does a terrific job of both developing the characters and writing a great story with a lot of action and suspense It s interesting to watch the main characters grow and change as they face adversity Amy gets confident and Dan gets depressed Watson made both character feel very real and relatable despite the crazy circumstances There were some great twists and turns in this book that had me frantically [...]
This book is the continuing of making Amy and Dan do whatever the Vespers pease as they have their loved ones This time the ransom takes them into olden days and mad kings As they steadly find information about the Vespers and the Cahills, Dan finds out that his father is still alive.I picked this book up because I have been waiting for this book very long.I finished this book because it was very interesting.I recommend this book to Patrick who loved the Medusa Plot.
Hmmm.It might just be me, but I felt like the only time the pacing was on in this book was when we were back with Nellieco Amy and Dan weret very exciting until about the last chapterhopefully the next will be better i.e Evan I think that s his name I don t like him is exposed as a spy dies both.

OKAYOKAYOKAYOKAY.WUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUT view spoiler No No No No You did not just kill McIntyre WUUUUUUUT WHYYYYY And HUUUUUH Arthur s a former Vesper And he s ALIVE hide spoiler
Gets a way better from beginning till end Much exciting than The Clue Hunt, but still with despair
Oh my god It did not just end like that Ahhhhh
Faster paced than the first one and even implausible, yet oddly gripping The plot thickens
The suspense, action, and plot just keep on coming with this second book Loving this second series
This book was so much fun And it was darker And it keeps getting interesting
More excitement and fun from this fabulous series
A little too short, but that ending Oh boy.
The book a kings ransom by Jude Watson was eventful to say the least The book took on something I haven t seen in most other 39 clues books, suspense they used it to build the plot in a way, from the realization that the woman holding the tuba was an enemy to the dread stare Dan gave to a skull the series of events went like a police investigation on the burglary of the century, arriving in Switzerland,realizing their dad was a vesper, stealing the De Vigra map and finally Atticus Rosenbloom bei [...]
Sometimes I find it hard to rate books because my opinion of the previous book I read can influence the one I m currently on I had a hard time with the book I finished right before this one, so I think I may have enjoyed this one because of it Much of the book was the same as previous books, but there were parts of it that were different, and I m kind of intrigued It makes me look forward to the other books in the series.
If the book is going towards how it is hinting I think this would be interesting but the darkness period with Dan is tiring me.
Action packed adventure story I like how new side characters have been woven into the story.
