A vast improvement over the last two installments in the 39 Clues series, "Storm Warning" finally reveals the mystery behind both the Madrigals and what Nellie Gomez has been up to since the clue hunt began.

This time, Dan and Amy Cahill are off to the Caribbean, searching for clues about the pirate Anne Bonny and other historical figures of the area. "Storm Warning" has a good pace and none of the clue hunting seems to rushed as it was in the two previous books in the series. I loved learning m

4.5 stars. One of the best books in this series yet! Things are finally coming together and being revealed as Dan and Amy race around the world - this time in the Caribbean - against relatives on the hunt for the 39 clues. The narration's viewpoint shifted between a few of the characters, so we got to see how others were feeling, and there was excitement mixed with danger and red herrings. The author was one of the better writers, too, which made the reading super quick and smooth. The reveal at ...more

so this isn't really a four star book in comparison to what i usually consider four star books. but compared to the other books in this series - which i can't stop reading despite some seriously sub-par offerings - it is. by which i mean it's probably the best book in the series. not in small part because stuff actually happens and you start getting answers to the questions that have existed since the series began. and there weren't so many ridiculous situations and the characterizations didn't ...more

A piping hot volume in the 39 Clues series!

I feel so much smarter after reading one of these books, for 2 reasons. Firstly, you learn interesting facts about our world, history, and important figures. Secondly, the drama of the Cahill family continues, and you learn much more about their ancestry.

This time Amy, Dan and their au pair get caught in hurricane weather while racing the Cahills through Jamaica. The siblings are definitely upping their status in the family line (if you've read the pre

Dan and Amy want to find the next clue to their clue hunt, but some people are getting in the way of things like the man in the black suit, Natalie and Ian, and possibly Nellie too. So, Dan and Amy try to keep their secrets (clues) to themselves, and with help from Nellie, Dan and Amy get to the places they needed to go like the Caribbean. Then Dan and Amy find a clue that changes their whole life, the clue that tells what branch of the family tree they are in, but in order to open it they need ...more

Hmm. If you have been staying with The 39 Clues and following each of the 8 books before this one, then you are probably like I was, ready for some answers. Storm Warning delivers some interesting answers - particularly some answers about Grace, Aunt Beatrice, Nellie, Dan & Amy’s parents, the Madrigals & the Man in Black. Getting some answers doesn’t necessarily mean the secrets are over though. (I for one, am getting suspicious about Grandma Grace. Do you think she’s really dead? I can’ ...more

I'm going to give a generic review of the series. Basically because I'm lazy and don't want to write 39 reviews. Okay, 11.

We finally read Book 1. And then because we liked it so well, the entire series. One son (age 12) has read them all, the second son (also age 12) is on Book 2. And son #3 (age 8) will be starting as soon as he finishes his current book.

I thought the premise of this book very interesting. I loved how they integrated history and geography along with problem-solving skills and c

Recommends it for: 39 Clues fans- and others who have read the series.
Ugh. I hate this book. That's why I rated it 5 stars. I hate this book so much I love it. I LOOOVE Linda Sue Park's writing in this book. It's written incredibly well. The entire death of (view spoiler) left me holding my breath until the end of the chapter. Rereading this series has been fun, especially after reading the horrible ending to the next series. The death of (view spoiler) was taken really well- having a whole chapter or two with just the ...more

The book showcases lots of satisfying reveals as we near the end of the journey. But somehow not so much heart or excitement. It's not that there weren't emotional scenes, adventure betrayals, love, sacrafice, danger, etc., but it felt a little distanced and simplified compared to some of the books. There was an enjoyable amount of girl power in the book though, both from historic figures and our heroes.

I'm just hoping that the last book isn't too much of perfect ending. The series has shown an

I have seen other people read so I thought I should read it and I loved it. I was suprised when Dan, Amy, and Nellie went in the cave and they tried to find a clue but then the water inside the cave was rising and Nellie yelled at Dan and pulling the rope although Amy was swallowing some water and she was gargling then I was scared like what was gonna happend.

I like the part about The Man In Black because when they introduce him earlier in the story except no one knew who he really was not eve

Dan and Amy Cahill are on a deadly mission to find all the clues before anyone else in their family can, so they decide to travel the high seas and look for clues in the Bahamas and Jamaica. But on their way, Dan, Amy, and Nellie haven't been getting along; during their conflict, Dan and Amy found clues about their well known ancestors which lead them close to lost treasure. So they met up with some of Grace's friends that Dan and Amy never new of, but surprisingly they knew Dan and Amy. Then Am ...more

Hello guys!!!Yesterday evening,I finished the ninth book in the heartstopping 39 Clues series and I say it wasn't what I expected.A friend of mine who is also a fan of the series,claimed that this book was the best from the first nine and I had high expectations.As I dived in,though,I realized that it wasn't so much adventurous as the previous one(which is so far my favorite).

It had lots of historical facts,something that when I started was entertaining but it turned quite tiring after some time

The Book 39 clues is an amazing book! It is an immature reading for me but I love it! The whole story line keeps you incredibly captured.

The story is about a pair of brother and sister (The Cahills) who after their grandmother died left their whole family a scavenger hunt for the 39 clues. There are four branches to the family and Dan and Amy are trying to figure which they belong to. While on the hunt they discover fascinating things about their family history and themselves. Who will win the h

This book answered so many questions that we have been wanting answered. The history is back too (Jessica will want to know this.) And it is a pirate book!
Loving the series.

Wow, this must be a really good book, because this is one of those books that I finished in one day. I really can't wait for the last book of the series because this is awesome!

3.5 stars. This has been my favorite book of the series so far.

Amy and dan go to the Bahamas and Jamacia in this one. They find out that Grace left a clue for Nellie and that it helps them with a puzzle that they have to do at the end of the book. The Kabras we very vicious in this one and Amy and Dan narrowly escape. They meet and new friend and they discover another family member and more about the Madrigals, their branch. By the end of the book Amy, Dan and Nellie are working together and the

If you haven't listened to this series on cd I highly recommend you do so. The narrator is the same for all of them and he is amazing. The books themselves have some great funny moments but David, the narrator, adds so much more to it. He is amazing at the voices for all the characters but my favorite character he does is Nellie. Oh my word my whole family loves when Nellie is mentioned in the book and we usually end up laughing pretty hard.

We borrow them from the library and really can't wait

FINALLY. My mind is [mostly] at rest about all this.

I really can't say much about the story without giving it away, but I can say that my emotions were everywhere while reading this.

Having read all the books in this series so far, I am now most anxious to read the final book that is due to come out in August. Every book has captured my attention and Book 9: Storm Warning is no exception. It is aptly titled and if you are an astute observer some things are revealed even before you read the book. That’s one of the things I love about The 39 Clues.


This time 14 year-old Amy Cahill and her 11-year-old brother Dan are in Jamaica, following the lead of Anne Bonny, a pirate of the

This is the last one in this set available right now. We will have to wait for the rest. This last on is probably the best. Good payoff on some of the mysteries built up in the previous books.

These books are great for kids. The reading level is good for kids even as young as third or fourth grade, but the story is interesting enough to engage kids much older than that (uh, how old am i again... :-). The length of each book is not intimidating, and the story in each, while progressing the overal

This book is one of my favorites. In here Amy and Dan work hard to find the next clue, and the first stop is a cave in the Caribbean. They must find 4 key trinkets, 1 for each branch and its correspondent animal, as their are important in the clue hunt. Many dangers occur during this mission, including Dan and Amy almost drowning inside the cave, and Amy hitting her head hard because of the waves. The kids still can't seem to trust Nellie, so they must find the clues without her and their relati ...more

Storm Warning is the continuation of the book, The Emperor's Code. This series is about two siblings, Amy and Dan. You might think they are just average people, but the truth is that their family, the Cahills, is on a hunt all around the world looking for 39 clues that can change the world. In the book Storm Warning, Dan and Amy starts of their next clue search in Bahamas, hoping to find more information about a pirate who they believe is a Cahill, thinking that she (the pirate was a girl) was ...more

***NOTE MY REVIEWS OFTEN CONTAIN SPOILERS***

After the events in China, the Cahill siblings feel they have no choice but to confront Nellie, because they’re sure Nellie isn’t what she claims to be and they need to know exactly what kind of enemy might be among them. Even though they were expecting it, it still blows them away when Nellie confesses to be working for Mr. McIntyre. Along the search for the clue Nellie has become the only family they had and now she’s confessed that they can’t trust

This series is just wonderful and gets better with each new installment. 39 Clues was written and directed towards middle grade readers but I have to admit I love them and eagerly await each one that comes out (I always give my game cards away to a student which makes me quite popular!)

39 Clues is about two siblings, Amy and Dan Cahill, who were left a challenge in their grandmother's will: accept $1 million and walk away now or take no money but embark on a quest for the 39 clues. Only one fami

The series definitely starts to resolve and wind down in this volume, which provides a mix of emotions. On the one hand, mysteries that have pervaded the series are solved, though not always in a satisfactory way. On the other, some elements of the story seem to be slightly lacking in the sense that there is a ton of build-up in the other eight books, with somewhat mediocre conclusions. I love that the Madrigals aren't as sinister as they're made to seem, but I also wish they were more sinister. ...more
