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

Glad I persevered this far. The identity of The Man In Black* is revealed. At great cost, Dan and Amy and their au pair Nellie learn the secrets of the Madrigal opposition to the Cahill family.

* no actual relation to The Princess Bride.

This was the best 39 clues book I have ever read and that is saying something.
That's why it deserves the 5 stars I gave it, though I really mean to give it 4.5 stars.
I did not expect this book to be so good, I did not expect to get so engrossed in it ,or feel so much excitement over it. I did not think a 39 clues book would make me feel this way. But with this book I think Linda Sue really pulled it off.
When I pick up a 39 clues book I do so for a light reading and to have mindless fun. But oh b

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

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

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

This was one of the better books in this series...maybe I'll read more by Linda Sue Park. But anyway, this book explains many things that I had questions about before. Without giving too much away, I can't say much more. However, I'm starting to have serious doubts on whether they will be able to put a solid, worthy ending on this series in just one more book. There is just so much going on...and I'm hoping that Book 10 is a good, final piece like with Harry Potter. If it's anti-climatic, I'm go ...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.

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

I it is a good book for people that like mysteries and is forward to people that like adventure and lots of action. It is also good because there are more than one main character in the book and the book flows in a good pace. Thats is why i gave it a four out of five.

Storm Warning by Linda Sue Park is another good book that I have read in a series. I have not reviewed the whole series because I read all the others last year. Continuing their quest for all 39 Clues, Amy and Dan travel to the Caribbean to uncover the secrets of Anne Bonny, a famous lady pirate, and a Cahill, the most powerful family in the world. Almost all great people are actually Cahills, but a tragedy broke the family into four branches: The Tomas, masters of physical prowess and the most ...more

Storm Warning, by Linda Sue Park

This ninth addition to the 39 clue book series is actually kind of confusing at the beginning because you can’t tell what it is leading up to. Amy and Dan Cahill have been all over the world on their clue hunt to become the most influential people in the history of the world, but the Caribbean is by far the nicest place they have been in yet! But is not even close to the safest place they have been, either. They are being followed by the man in black, a mysteriou

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

Amy and Dan have become quite suspicious of their au pair, Nellie. While traveling to the Caribbean for the next part of the hunt, they force Nellie into telling them the truth about her secret conversations. As much as it pains Nellie, she only tells them part of it. She's been working for Mr. McIntyre because Grace hired her.

We finally start to get answers to some big questions at the end of this book. This information changes the entire direction of the clue hunt, and now I'm a little nervous because Amy and Dan have a huge new goal that they need to reach, in addition to finding the last clues. As I understand it, they only have one book left in which to accomplish both tasks. Too much for an entire book? We shall see.

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

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.
