Quick Summary of the Series:
To start the series, Dan and Amy Cahill were at the funeral for their grandmother, Grace Cahill. Soon they learned that they were given the choice between $1 million dollars each or to go on a clue hunt, with the chance to find the 39 clues and to be the most powerful kids in the world. They picked to search for the 39 clues. Dan and Amy Cahill had to travel around the world with Nellie, their Au Pair, and their grandmother's cat, Saladin. They had to steal a lot of ingredients that would make a master serum to make the kids the most powerful in the world.There were 5 branches of the Cahill family. The 5 branches of the family are Lucian, Thomas, Ekaterina, Janus, and Madrigal.At first, Dan and Amy thought the Madrigals were bad people who killed their parents. Later, they learned this wasn't true, along with a secret that surprised them. Sometimes they worked with people from different branches, and other times they worked alone. They always had to be careful and suspicious.
Why I loved the books:
I loved the books because of the mysteries, the clues and the different branches. I also liked this series because at the end, the branches worked together. I won't tell you too much about the end though. I don't want to give it all away. I thought Dan and Amy were pretty cool kids because Dan liked tombstone rubbings and Amy was very smart. I would like to be like Dan because I'd have a very good memory of everything I've ever seen. I liked learning about different places around the world and history. I can't wait to see the movie, which is supposed to come out in 2014. I wonder if it is better than the books I have read. We'll see!
