A nightmare come true
As a member of the most powerful family history has ever known, thirteen-year-old Dan Cahill has been shot at, kidnapped, and even thrown into a pit with a deadly snake. He's survived it all due to luck, smarts, and his older sister, Amy, who always sticks by his side.
Now Dan and Amy are facing their greatest threat yet, an enemy who has found a way to use the source of the Cahill family power against them. To stop him, Dan and Amy must set out on a desperate mission that will take them from one of the world's hottest regions all the way to the frozen blast of the Arctic Circle. But with the enemy closing in, Dan finds himself facing the one terror he never imagined - being betrayed by his own sister.

This is a good book, though, as I feel with other 39 Clues books, it is rushed. The books are altogether too short, a lot of things happen in only a little time, and, frankly, the whole 'race against time have to find a ton of ingredients while mad people are hunting us down' thing gets old. But... That's the style of the book; I won't get in the way of that.
The Bottom Line: Good book, but feels too short
