Into the Gauntlet by Margaret Peterson Haddix... a book that ROCKS and ROLLS!! This one, like all the 39 Clues books, really grabbed hold of me. I remember staying up late one night because I couldn't go to bed until I got all the way to the end.
This is the final book in this fantastic series. Dan and Amy Cahill are closing in on the secret to becoming the most powerful people on earth. And so are their evil cousins, who will will stop at nothing to gain that secret. But not only do Dan and Amy have to keep it away form their unbelievable cousins, they also have to get the other four branches of the Cahill family to work together. Not an easy task, since they've basically been at war for 500 years! They must succeed, however, for the sake of the whole human race.
Man, oh, man, will you enjoy this one!! There are ninjas, exploding underground tunnels, a confrontation on mountain top, and an all-Cahill family fight on the Globe Theatre stage! (And, I tell you, I have never been so scared for Dan as when he was dangling off the side of that enormous cliff!!) You can see that there's enough action and heart-pounding excitement to satisfy any reader guy. Plus there are MAJOR surprises--including one that will leave you wondering, "Is this really the end of the Clue hunt? Or only the beginning of an even MORE major adventure?" You'll ask yourselves the same question after you read Into the Gauntlet. Don't miss it!!! And if you don't believe me that this a terrific book, read what your fellow reader guy Michael said in the post under this one.
