Amy and Dan Cahill are the protagonists and they are all on their own in the hunt for the 39 Clues started by their grandmother, Grace Cahill. They must depend on their own instincts to beat their wealthy cousins to the final product, the serum including all of the 39 Clues, which makes whoever drinks it the most powerful person in the world. The antagonists are the other Cahill members taking part in the hunt for the 39 Clues.

The setting is all over the world as the clue hunt leads them. The point of view is from all the members of the clue hunt which adds suspense. The theme is that the the people who cheat lose, even though in reality they might win.

Entry 3-

In this final book of the search of the 39 Clues Amy and Dan complete the uniting of the five branches of the Chahill family. They go through the Gauntlet with Allistar, Sinead, Jonah, Ian, Natalie, and Hamilton only to find that Isabel beat them to the end of the Gauntlet. She shoots her own daughter, Natalie, so that they did what she wanted and she mixed the serum. All at once, everyone attacked Isabel and when the serum pops out of her hand everyone, except Dan and Amy ran after the serum leaving only Dan and Amy to hold down Isabel. After Isabel is defeated everyone gave all their clues to Dan because they didn't trust themselves anymore, but they trusted Dan and Amy. Dan and Amy got 4 milliion dollars.
