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

Это был залп. Я проглотила восьмую и девятую книгу в кратчайшие строки. И если восьмая была так себе, то девятая это чертова отдушина. Какое там развитие сюжета! А расскрытие некоторых тайн! Просто фантастика. Читала я с удовольствием, не отрывалась от книги ни на миниту. И это с учетом того, что делалось это на работе, в самый разгар рабочего дня. Не жалею.
Я уже предвкушаю что будет в последних книгах, ибо все идет к финалу. Но еще до сих пор не были упомянуты Весперы, что удивительно. Ведь о

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

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

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

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

It seems that books are turning to be easy to fathom. No more complicated trips, journeys, messages or notes. So far I guess it was the most interesting and important book in the series; Revealing secrets of Nellie Gomez, the man in black ( now in gray whose name is Fiske Cahill ), and Madrigals. For centuries Cahills thought the family consisted of four branches: Ekat, Lucian, Janus and Tomas. Noone knew about Madrigals and yet was afraid of them. In fact, they descended from Gileon and Olivia' ...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

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

At long last, this is a much more feminist-oriented book in the 39 Clues series (thanks to the presence of a female author), in which dozens of the confusing facts and mysteries surrounding the Cahill extended family, the children's parents' and grandparents' histories and intentions, and so much more, are disclosed to our young protagonist duo. While there continues to be ample excitement and adventure, we, finally, have the chance to see a broader range of emotional experiences shared and expl ...more

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.

One of the best books in the series. Many questions are finally answered about the clue hunt, Dan & Amy's bloodline, Nelly Gomez, and the mysterious "Man in Black". The clue hunt continues with the two sleuths finding and deciphering many more puzzles, while out maneuvering the competion (especially the "Cobras".)

This is also one of the saddest books in the series as the Cahill siblings make a friend in Jamaica, only to have him get killed.

There is also a small tease which leads the readers

The Clue hunt takes Amy, Dan & Nellie to the Caribbean. There they learn about some very strong female pirates. More secrets are revealed about Nellie. Grace had been secretly making sure that Nellie was trained to take care of Amy and Dan. All of Nellie's scholarship money had come from Grace. It made Amy and Dan feel more secure that Nellie was really family. Amy and Dan also learn about their true mission, which was to mend the rifts between the families. They suceeded with their peers.

Novel number nine has Amy and Dan enjoying themselves a bit while cruising around the Caribbean looking for their next clue. However, new information makes them start to doubt the loyalty of their au pair, Nellie. This distrust could not come at a worse time, since Isabel Kabra is getting more vicious by the day. Still more revelations about the Cahill family and its darkest secrets once again make the siblings reexamine everything they thought they knew. The characters have developed tremendous ...more

Storm Warning is the ninth title in The 39 Clues series of 11 books, not including spinoff series. It is yet another solid entry into the action adventure series for the tween set.

The series in general maintains a high level of interest and excitement as well as leaving the reader with the desire to continue on to subseque ...more

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.
