Review:

This was a good book, as always. I'm not sure how the 12 or so different authors of The 39 Clues series do it, but somehow all their writing coalesces and seems like it's written by the same author. It's pretty cool if you ask me. The reason this book got 3.5  stars? Because it was good. No, good is not a bad thing, everyone just chill. But it was... just... good. I remember the beginning arc in The 39 Clues series, that was one of the best book series I have read (the books are currently all sitting on my shelf right next to me ;D). But I think that the 12 authors should have stopped at that arc. I feeeeeel, that these authors are running out of ideas. It was still a good book, good writing, but kind of predictable and the series is getting old. I'm still getting over the shock that there are four arcs.

 

The Bottom Line: Good book, but they probably should have ended with the first arc
