      All I can say about the book it was the easiest one about the events, about Amy and Dan's itinerary and finding clue until now. But realization was worse. How they could be a Madrigal, when they two hated them so much.

      The most dangerous secret in Amy and Dan's past is unveiled in Book 7 of the #1 New York Times bestselling series. The hunt for 39 hidden Clues that lead to an unimaginable power have taken a heavy toll on fourteen-year-old Amy Cahill and her younger brother, Dan. They've just seen a woman die. They're wanted by the Indonesian police. They're trapped on an island with a man who knows too much about the death of their parents. And a tropical storm is rolling in. Just when they think it can't get [...]

      Audio version with The Youngest on a car trip; filled the time vey nicely. A few pretty deep themes for a 4th-grader; if your kids are hooked on the 39 Clues series, be aware of what they are reading.And really, (view spoiler)[these Cahills are also (view spoiler)[Madrigals (hide spoiler)]???

      Ну ничего себе, вот это поворот. Впрочем, я об этом догадывалась, но ведь фамилия-то почему такая? Эта часть менее насыщенная событиями в отличии от остальных, но конец порадовал. Итог: 7 из 10

      Why was Dan so pushed in the spotlight? I kinda wished everyone contributed equally in the novel.

      This book was mainly that sometimes the reward is worth the risk. In this book and series the reward is nothing short of the chance of world domination, the reward making you the most powerful person in the world. In this book they are in South Africa, tracing down a connection between Winston Churchill and Shaka Zulu, all the while avoiding peril from their adventures and relatives. They go through many dangers and as usual dodge death many times. But they still stay in the hunt, showing time a [...]

      This book was really exciting. There is lots of danger in the series, and Amy and Dan are trying really hard to find all the clues before their enemies do.The reason I put four stars is because of several inappropriate words that were mentioned in the book. 😕 Can’t wait to start on #8. 😄

      I thought that this book was really exciting, because there was so many problems Amy and Dan had to face. But most of all, after reading the end, it made me want to continue the series even more now.

      ******MINOR SPOILERS AHEAD******Oh my gosh. Here is yet another awesome 39 Clues book. I wonder how do the 39 Clues writers come up with those mind-boggling puzzles and codes topped with historical background and everything. And speaking of puzzles, codes, and history, in this particular book, readers are brought into another action-filled adventure to South Africa (Pretoria---because of the song March to Pretoria which was a clue from Irina Spasky---and I even checked out the youtube video of t [...]

      I thought that the book was overall pretty exciting, and I really liked the ending. I was a little bit confused at some parts, and it moved pretty quickly, but otherwise i really liked it. This book made me think about family. Family is so complicated! One minute you love them, and the next moment you don't.Dan and Amy have lots of family, most of whom they hate. Besides Grace, their parents are the only family members they have who they feel close to, even though they're dead. But at the end f [...]

      The Viper’s Nest is book number seven in a mystery series, which incorporates game cards and an Internet site that continues the adventure. This would be a great book for Haidyn to read independently. The characters are a part of an ancient family that is broken apart into its branches and is searching for a great source of power. These family branches are all racing to get this power and to keep the other members from getting it first. They must find 39 clues, which lead them to the power. I [...]

      So a lot of stuff happened in this book, big stuff for Dan and Amy. But that's not what affected my perception of this book. I couldn't get past how annoying and whiny Amy was. In a way, it's very understandable because of what happens to them in this book. They are forced to go through a lot of things that young children should not have to deal with. All the same, I can't help but feel that perhaps it was the way Peter Lerangis wrote the book that made Amy seem so annoying.The book was a little [...]

      I'm actually reading this whole series to introduce 3 and 4th grade students to a series that discusses history and science topics that aren't covered in the classroom, and encourage them to use library resources to look for more "clues." I wrote a review of the first book and did not intend to write reviews for the rest of the series (there are 11 books total), but Lerangis' writing was actually a step above what I had come to expect. There were a number of moments where the characterization wa [...]

      In this 39 Clues installment, Amy and Dan are reeling from their experiences in Indonesia and ready to go wherever their clue takes them. Unfortunately, they don't have a lead but fortunately, something turns up (as it always does) to help them along and take them to Africa. Lots of history lessons are given and family backgrounds are explored, including the big revelation of which Cahill branch Dan and Amy belong to!Some of the dialogue - especially at the beginning of the book - felt forced, w [...]

      This is a great adventurous book in which two siblings go on a perilous journey to find the 39 clues. On the path they came through many obstacles such as bloodthirsty cousins/rivals, deadly snakes, muscle men and secrets that people will kill to find out. The small secret turns into a humongous clue that all the other branches thrive to find out. Amy, Dan, Nellie and their cat Saladin have to protect this clue from reaching bad hands. Will they succeed in doing so, or will they face terrors no [...]

      Vipers Nest is a adventure with a group of kids and elders, the two main characters are Dan and amy. Dan, Amy, and the group go on an adventure to find clues that church hill left behind from his travels. While traveling, they go to south Africa and there they find one of church hills clues, and in the next books they find more and it goes on from there. I would recommend this book to anyone who has read the 39 clues series and liked it or people who like mysteries.

      Terrific, one of the best in the series. Lots of history without lecturing. Tons of action while preserving the emotional context. Witty without pandering. And lots of suspense, expanding on the mystery. Plus a heck of a cliffhanger! Thank goodness the books come out only 3 months apart. Very well done, much better than Lerangis' first book in this series.

      this book takes off the exact same day as the last book. this is kind of different because it is usualy a while before the next book starts. right now they are worried that a volcano is about to BLOW!!! Now I it is about a week later and I just finished the book. I just found out what branch they are in and i I was really supprised I did not even know that it was a branch!

      An OK entry by the standards of the series. Didn't learn too much about South Africa or Shaka Zulu that I didn't know, but if it teaches some kids about apartheid, then it was good. It did make me want to watch the 80s miniseries of Shaka Zulu, which we now have in the library.

      I really enjoyed this installment. It was exciting and I felt immediately pulled into the story. The characters were true to themselves, and there were some great twists that left me wanting more! Can't wait to read the next one.

      I JUST WANT TO KNOW HOW IT ENDS!!!!And on the back it said Amy and Dan would find out what branch they're in, but it didn't really say. It kinda said it on the last page, but not really. And it's a little annoying how they keep changing authors. I wish they would stick with Rick Riordan

      To be honest, I love Dan. He is definitely my soulmate.Here are snippets as to why I love this book.***Dan was looking over their shoulders. "Um, Amy, they're not following us.""That's because I took these." Amy held up a set of keys. "The front door was open and I reached in.""Whoa, snnnap!" Dan said. His sister was all grinning and proud of herself. "You took your Cahill pills!"***"We have a few more minutes," Dan said. "He's going to ask for a rematch.""How do you know?""It's a guy thing!"*** [...]

      Another fun Amy, Dan, & Nellie adventure with a BIG revelation at the end. We are seven books in & still love reading this series as a family. My son (age 9) could definitely read this by himself, but I think it would be a little tough for my 7-year-old. We read it out loud so that we can discuss the history, events, & theories about the Clues. They have both chosen historical characters from these books to write reports on in school, so I love that the books are also piquing their i [...]
