Day of Doom by Tyler

Day of Doom (The 39 Clues: Cahills vs. Vespers, #6)This was the final book in the Cahills vs Vespers series, that followed up the 39 Clues Series that I read earlier this year. I'd been waiting to finish the books, and I just earned a special reading award that came with a gift card to Barnes and Noble. I decided to spend my money on this book! And, I'm glad I did!

In this book, Dan and Amy, with the help of their family, stopped the Vespers from starting up the Doomsday Device. This device was going to destroy the planet, but luckily, the Cahills got to it first. In this book, even Isabelle Kobra turned into a good guy, when she realized that the Vespers had killed her daughter, named Natalie. All along, Isabelle had been the ultimate villain, even shooting Natalie in the foot, at one point. I was shocked that she came to the good side. Sinead turned back from being a mole for the Vespers and ended up helping Amy and the rest of the Cahills. I was happy with how the series ended, and I'm glad that the Cahills were safe. I was worried, though, when Amy was struck by a chunk of rock in the head. She started having visions of her dead family members, and I thought she was a goner, too!

Next, I'm going to read the Infinity Ring series, which is by the same authors as the 39 Clues Books and the Cahills vs Vespers. The Infinity Ring are not books about the Cahills and Vespers, so I'm ready to meet some new characters!

The Wind Singer by Tyler

The Wind Singer was written William Nicholson, and it is the first book in the Wind on Fire trilogy. This book was about a boy named Bowman and his twin sister, named Kestrel. Bowman and Kestrel had to save the world from the Zars and the Morah. The Zars were trying to kill everyone in their path, and nothing could stop them. The Morah controlled the Zars, and they wanted to get rid of everyone. Bowman and Kestrel were able to get the voice of the Wind Singer from a mountain the far North, and took it back to the town they lived in, called Arameth. They took it took back to the middle of town, where there was a statue of the Wind Singer. This kept the Zars away and saved the town!
There are two more books in this series. I don't think that I will actually read those. This book was pretty good, but I wasn't left wanting to read more. I'm glad I read this one, but that was probably enough for me.
