I have enjoyed the 30 clues series from the start. I loved the whole idea of all these books being written by different authors. This book was good at pushing the plot toward the end of the series. To be honest I am getting a little tired of following the main characters (Dan and Amy) around the world and finding clues. If the series continues after Day of Doom (which is the book after this one) then I probably won't continue. I was a little disappointed in this book though because we don't really get to read about all the characters we've grown to love. I am sure in the last book everyone will enter back into the story but for now we just focused on our little group of teens.
There is a lot of story lines happening in this book and I love it. I am glad that the next book will answer all these questions. The cliffhanger in this book was perfect. This book series is really good and I think more people should read them. There is a little love triangle going on.. but I guess that will get nipped in the butt in the last book. These books are fun fast reads.. they are for middle school readers but hey.. I still love them!
The crystal ball says:
Clouds are covering! A read that lets me down every now and then but peaks out of the clouds!
