"I thought you at least had SOME sense of honor -- in your sick, twisted way" HOW COULD YOU DO THIS?"

Amy and Dan Cahill, with the Rosenblooms, Jake and Atticus, are back in the States for the next artifact Vesper 1 wants them to steal so that he will let the 7 (view spoiler) hostages go free. This time, the Voynich, the mysterious manuscript found in 1912. But that's not even the worst of their troubles. They have found out that there is a mole in thei

Ok. First things first, I must say this. This to me, beats Percy Jackson, the Pendragon series, and the previous 39 Clues. To all those Rick Riordan fans out there: I'm sorry. This book is amazing. First of all, the cover is fantastic. With plenty of puzzles in the book, it makes it very frustrating to remember your page number. The search for the Voynich Folio 74 is filled with danger, and an old enemy. I can't wait for the "final" book by David Baldacci, because OH BOY does it end on a cliffha ...more

I have to say that there aren't much books so wonderfully spectacular that I was forced to do a review because it was so damn freaking awesome. Usually the books that make me do this are also the ones that made me scream out loud until my mother finally gives me the 'Why-is-my-child-so-crazy?' look.

Trust No One has got to be the most tense book of the whole Vesper vs. Cahill series, except the last book but then again, it isn't out yet. (A fact that I regret after reading this book in under four

I started the original series when it came out and have been reading the books since. I have to admit, I'm glad this is the penultimate book - it is time for the series to end! The storyline is still perfectly fine but it really is starting to feel like the story has just been dragged on for a bit too long - over 3 years since the first book, with one book about every three months. I still love the whole concept of different authors writing different parts. The characters are so well known at th ...more

I love the 39 Clues series. I have since the first series and I'm finding this second series isn't disappointing. So much so that I made sure I was first on the waiting list for the digital audio copy of this book.

Trust No One is the fourth book in the second series and continues Amy, Dan, Atticus and Jake's quest to both steal for Vesper One and figure out what he's doing so they can stop him. This time, they've been sent to Yale to steal the Voynich manuscript. But what they need from it isn't

I am a little disappointed at the use of foul language in this book which we have so far not seen in this series. It was mild and not used a lot but is definitely a change from the previous books.

Excellent book to continue the series with! If you don't want spoilers, then only read this review up to the spoilers section...

Firstly, this book has been my favorite in the Cahill vs Vespers series so far. For many reasons, chiefly among which is that it is not only action packed, but sees some of the largest shifts in plot seen so far.

I really enjoyed this installment of the series. It seems Amy has hit the proverbial wall in this book and I hope she breaks past it in the next. She seems to be falling into a serious depression and breakdown at the end of the book leaving Dan to have to step up at the end. Dan also finally make sthe serum and takes it, I'm off two minds on this, maybe Amy's worry over the serum is unnecessary and it won't change Dan for the worst, in which case I hope he made enough for her and gets her to tak ...more

This was an interesting book as you finally learn who the Vesper mole is and their motivation. However, the book seems to be pretty inconsistent. I think that has to do with the fact each book is by a different author and I'm not sure there was great collaboration between the author of the previous book and this one. At the end of book four, Jonah has what is a rather life changing event. Jonah and Hamilton virtually disappear from this book till the very end but the major event from the previou ...more

Quick read! This newest installment of the Cahills vs. Vespers series was really good! Filled with action and fight scenes, I think the kids in my library will enjoy it. We finally find out who the Cahill mole is and what the Vespers are up to. And spoiler alert: One of the hostages does die in this book. Dan becomes stronger as Amy starts to struggle in this book. Usually it was the other way around. These are definitely darker than the original series, but as the kids who read them have grown ...more

Dan is the best, Amy a little bit retreated into herself, no word from Phoenix, Hamilton and Jonah being best buddies, RIP Alistair, I like Jake, Atticus's life in danger, Isabel Kabra on scene again, Sinead is mole, Ian turns out to be good guy as we knew, and while all these happening V1 is making a doomsday device, so here comes the last book The Day of the Doom ^_^

This book is probably one of my favorites from the entire 39 Clues as well as Cahills Vs. Vespers series. The writing style is great, with eloquent action scenes and lots of comedic moments. The balance between the two types of scenes is also very good, and the story definitely keeps you on your toes. The author is also very good at writing what she writes, which was very big on me at any romantic scenes, since I really didn't like what the previous (and next) author does. Back to the humor, my ...more

Great, just great. I've marathoned the first five books of this spin-off series, only to find the ending of this one to be a cliffhanger. I've rummaged through our bookshelf in search for the final installment, Day of Doom, but it turns out my brother hasn't bought it yet! Now I have no other choice but to do what I hate doing most: waiting.

Wow! Wow! I mean, really? Gah!

Dan and Amy (and Jake and Atticus) are travelling around the world trying to figure out what in the world the Vespers are trying to do. Maybe they don't want to know, but what with family and others being held hostage, they don't exactly have a choice but to stop them. Surprises and sadness is what this book is.

Despite that, this book was pretty great. There was some great action scenes, lots of funny parts, and then some emotional parts that I'm glad were added in.

What is this with the female authors of this series taking Amy's characterization back to the 19th century?
Haddix took Amy and made her whiny and bossy.
Park makes her curl up into a little ball of "I can't do this anymore" so Dan has to come and save the day?

Really?

Add to that the fact that the mystery is just sort of...sidelined (seriously, the Voynich manuscript is so amazing and it got turned into just a McGuffin for the kids to find a missing piece?) to give more time to the attempts on Atti

The penultimate book of the series makes it clear whoever is writing the blurbs isn't bothering to read the books, because the shocking traitor is revealed in chapter two. Despite that, this book has plenty of tension, arguably more than recent volumes, because it focuses solely on the core team of Amy, Dan, Jake, and Atticus and their frantic search for the Voynich Manuscript. There is still time for one terrible event among the hostages, but the other allies and enemies are basically absent. T ...more

I’ve come to be prepared for anything and everything in this series, and that’s just about what I got from this installment of the Cahill versus Vespers series.

Linda Sue Park weaves a story that includes double-crosses, assassins, a trip to Brazil, a page from a centuries-old manuscript stuck in a crack, the death of one of the hostages, a knife fight and a mental breakdown by Amy…Whoa.

In all this, we *finally* get a sense of what the Vespers are planning – of course, it isn’t anything good! Sti

As much as I enjoyed the adventure, intrigue and drama in this volume of the 39 Clues, a couple of things bogged down the story for me..

NOTE to the discerning reader & parents: A key element in this book includes the characters looking at illustrations of naked women swimming in water. This made the whole book lose its appeal on me. Plus, one of the characters utters a rather foul word that I had not expected to come from Scholastic, nor the 39 Clues series.

Overall, I can't really rate this

In the 39 Clues series things just keep getting more intense. Without spoiling the major events, there are seven members of the Cahill family held hostage by the organization known as the Vespers. Vesper One is holding all the cards. But who is he? There are some hints that he could be someone Dan and Amy knew. But what hope of stopping Vesper One do they have if there is a traitor within their innermost circle.

While most of the 39 Clues books make an effort to stay on a fairly historical track, with a bit of manufactured history thrown in, the final couple books always just throw out things that are so far from the truth that its place as a semi-educational series is just destroyed.

We get a few revelations here. Who the mole among the Cahills is, which made me feel a bit silly, as it's the person who felt very tacked-on at the beginning of this sub-series. And, well...tacked on at the end of the previ

I liked A Single Shard so much that I started to look for more books by Linda Sue Park. You know how it is. Find a new author: check out the oeuvre.

Well, if I'd realised this was part of a multi-author series before I ordered it, I might have thought twice. If I'd realised it was the fifth book in the series, I'd have changed my mind.

But... ... the plot isn't hard to pick up. Sufficient information about the backstory is provided to make it relatively easy to follow the action.

In this fifth installment of the Cahills vs. Vespers, the demands of the kidnappers revolve around an ancient manuscript, writings and inventions of Archimedes, and the Madrigal ring. Amy, Dan, and the rest of their team have no choice; they must do as they are ordered or the hostages will be killed. They rush from New York to Brazil and back while they send Jonah and Hamilton to Italy in search of clues.
