The 39 Clues: Cahills vs. Vespers, Book 4: Shatterproof. by Roland Smith. Amy and Dan have been through so much more turmoil in.
It was real. Jonah got shaken up for what he did as he saw Luna fell on the floor lifeless. With the help of Hamilton they carried Milos Vanek, chair and all into a safe place and left him. He offered them his help but they declined.
What they were doing was top secret and no one would be able to help them. They just left him there wondering what the kids were up too. Amy, Dan, Atticus and Jake then got to Timbuktu, the center of knowledge of Africa where they could find dozens and dozens of manuscripts. Phoenix was desperate to survive.
When he saw a branch hanging, he got it and went back to the surface. Assuming they either think he was dead and got into the next village, Phoenix proceeds on his journey. He caught real fish and ate it, thinking it was sushi for he was hungry. He then realized one thing: Evan was exhausted. He got another cup of coffee and was about to continue reconnecting when he heard a scream. He got to the living room and saw Ian, the side of his face bleeding.
He got another wound thanks to Saladin. Ian got a first aid kit and mended it himself. Evan then received a text from Hamilton saying Erasmus was dead. Ian said to Evan that he had made progress in thinking of a way and Evan just ran away from him and directly went to Sinead. He told her everything. They were exhausted but pleased. Amy told Mr. Dan was staring at his cellphone when he got a text.
It was from Sinead. Erasmus dead. Luna Amato dead. I have proof that Ian is the traitor. He then approached Amy who was busy booting up her laptop and showed her the text. It took Amy to read several times before the information was fully computed in her mind.
She cried, thinking it was her fault. Then the Vesper phone rang and nearly smashed it too. She then pushed the button. A photo appeared with the hostages looking terrible. They then realized they were only six and Phoenix was missing.
The Vesper phone chimed again. A text message appeared: Phoenix Wizard sat on a wall. Phoenix Wizard had a great fall. And as you can see, the others paid a price, too. I suggest you get to the United States in the next 24 hours or another Cahill will fall. Vesper One.
I love how it makes me get curious and read faster than before to know what will happen next. They deserved to have a minute! Roland knows when to be blunt, when to describe things, when to use figures of speech and when to describe the mood of the story.
And the ideas he got with Phoenix falling, the salt tablet, and Jubilee scene? Just pure amazing. It is seriously gorgeous. Now we have an idea what the Jubilee looks like! And three chapters? One is good enough. Two is better.
Three is best! I want to thank the authors of 39 Clues because of this! I also love the fact that I only have to wait at least a month before the next book will get published. I love you 39 Clues! What I Dislike: To be vague as much as possible, all I can say is that I refuse to believe it until I have seen the so called proof they have. It isn't real! I seriously dislike Evan. He kept on thinking ways in finding fault on Ian.
I love the cover, the suspense moments and a scene which made me squeal which gave this book an instant three stars and another one for the three chapter bonus on the end and the next book Trust No One being published within a month. I mean what they accused him of is sham. But even with that reason, I still give this book 4 stars.

Dec 18, Addy S. This series has not ceased to amaze me. I think I'm getting the last two books in the series for Christmas, so I can't wait to finish the series up!! Oct 26, Anastasia Antonova rated it it was amazing. Sep 06, Suzan rated it it was amazing.
Loved this and now have some suspicions about Evan! I think he may be a Vesper! I'm loving how Amy is drawn to Jake as I like him a lot more then Evan and think he's a better match for her. I'm also worried about Dan and hope he can be pulled back from the brink cause he does seem to going to a very dark place and he needs to remember who he is and not lose himself. Couple of deaths that made me sad although I suspect that one of the deaths didn't actually occur.
I also don't believe that Ian is Loved this and now have some suspicions about Evan!
I also don't believe that Ian is a traitor and actually feel sorry for the treatment he's getting from the others, I think Amy should have listened to him at the end instead of blowing up and slamming the laptop shut on him. Poor Ian doesn't know what he's done. I think evidence is being planted against him if Sinead has found anything cause considering her triplet is being held and hurt I don't believe Sinead is the traitor either.
Evan is very good with technology and would probably be able to plant evidence to the degree Sinead wouldn't realise it was planted. We'll see in future books though, I may be wrong! Jun 13, Dena rated it it was amazing Shelves: My son and I were fighting over this library book yesterday.
Good thing my husband is behind on this series or he would have fought us off and read it all night he's on c vs. This is such a good series because I feel many ages would like it, although you'd have to make sure your children are old enough to deal with prisoners, violence, guns, etc. I know my 1st grader wouldn't be ready for this and it would be too scary for her. I just wish the whole series would My son and I were fighting over this library book yesterday. I just wish the whole series would be in one book so I wouldn't have to keep waiting for the story.
It is a great money making scheme. Too bad for them we only check them out at the library! I can't really talk about the book because no matter what I say, it would give something away either in this series or the previous one. Sep 10, Christian rated it it was ok Shelves: I must admit that I'm growing weary of this series. There seems to be little to no movement or growth in the individual books, which makes them a bit of a pointless read.
Oct 25, Mith rated it it was ok Shelves: Inexplicable plot.
Unnecessary deaths. Contrived love-triangles. Baseless plot-twists. Zero progress. Self-inflicted, and I knew better. This book was amazing. May 21, Jerry rated it really liked it.
Like an old-school television serial, this series is always full of exciting action and suspense. Can't wait to see what happens next! Mar 25, Kcatty rated it liked it Shelves: I Maybe they need to take the tone as in the actual 39 clues series: No pictures of people.
Mayhaps they will change back. We who are old enough to analyze the series as we go, and in the process ruin it for ourselves, understand good writing strategies that lytling middle schoolers don't. We see the patterns, tropes and fails of series, as well as its quirks, individualisms and successes. In the first ten books, there was a haphazard element, an unknowing of what other people were doing.
Nobody could really trust each other, and these shifting alliances, tricks, double-crosses and traps were key to the series. No change-of-side came as a surprise, and up until book nine, there was no back-up, no money or tech support. We older people LIKE that. It's fun, exiting and ever-changing - an individualism that the setup of the series provides perfectly. But then people got older, Madrigals forced all other Cahills together, and our two protagonists got money and teams of people to do their research.
Sure, they still have to think on the fly, but there is no brother-sister-nanny element we objectively loved.
Let's face it, the motivation was half-get-away-from-great-aunt, half-get-the-money, and half-WTF-is-going-on! And, yes, I know my math. I am excused.
There was no greater good! But in the original books, antagonists weren't always bad guys, never purposefully, horribly hurt each other, and had petty emotions, all the same as our protagonists. This series is not built for multi-book suspense. Hostages are not hostages for more than two days. The legalities b. Technically, our protagonists were running from the social services department of Boston, Massachusetts.
Why is this a problem? Because the Boston police weren't everywhere, and you'd have random sightings in Beijing, Venice and the Bermudas! Did they ever go to the Bermudas? Need to check. The only authorities to really worry about were local ones. Again, we had no long-running plotlines except the big ones.
No, not like the wary distrust in previous books; this is a paranoid, knife-edge temper manipulated and enlarged by other people cough cough, you know who you are And as for B. I really don't like this putting-a-face to characters thing.
It restricts the personas readers build of characters. Plus, they use actors we recognize. Ah, books. We hate to love the bad ones, and love to hate some of the best ones. Aug 01, Ashley rated it really liked it. Before reading this book, I had basically given up on this series.
There are too many books, the plot rambles too much, and each book is too short for it to be worth the money spent on it. Nevertheless, I read this one because I have gotten slightly interested in the plot, and it is against my nature to stop reading a series once it is started.
I got it from the library which solves most of my problems with this series. This book was just as short as the others. I am ready for the characters j Before reading this book, I had basically given up on this series. I am ready for the characters just to go ahead and win but apparently that is not an option. All in all, it was an engaging book which I would not say I liked or didn't like.
They ended the book basically where they started off. Maybe the issue is alternating writers I'm not sure. Here's a note. Do NOT trust the page numbers in Shatterproof. It probably has to do with this series's stupid codes. But I get angry when after a half hour of reading, I look down to see I'm on page "5" instead of the page 40 that I'm really on. When I read a book there is a pledge taken by both the publisher and I. I tell them I will read it all the way through and they tell me the story isn't complete trash and it has correct page numbers.
They failed at one of those things. I would recommend reading it if you've made it this far in the series. Yet, if you haven't started the series yet, I would suggest to read it only if you are commited to the twenty or so books already made and the hundred or so more to come.

I don't think I could ever dislike a 39 Clues book, but this part of the story was definitely on the slow side of things. Amy and Dan have drawn in the Rosenblum brothers into their circle of infinite madness, but they boys don't shy away from adventure at all. The story opens up with the crew in Germany, not knowing what they're trying to do, and once they figure it out, finding out that it was only a ruse for Vesper One's true intentions.
Then they have to go to go to the desert to find some s I don't think I could ever dislike a 39 Clues book, but this part of the story was definitely on the slow side of things. Then they have to go to go to the desert to find some sort of apology, again, with no idea what they should be looking for.
In the meantime, the Cahill prisoners escape only to find they are in the Black Forest of Germany, but inevitably get captured again with the exception of Phoenix. The other Wizard and Hamilton are on their own mission with Erasmus to follow Luna from Interpol, leading to a very bad scene in which Luna kills Erasmus, with Jonah turning around killing her.
Some very dark stuff is happening here View all 4 comments. Oct 01, Anmol rated it it was ok. Well, it was a quick read- took around 3 hours to finish with short breaks in between. I think now the series is lacking that adventure, that suspense that kept us all tied throughout the 39 clues.
Vespers isn't as good, as thrilling as the books from 39 clues. The story isn't taking a very good shape- the suspense factor- nah! I know its a kids' book but since I have read the rest of the series, I thought of continuing it even when I am Dan seems to Well, it was a quick read- took around 3 hours to finish with short breaks in between. Dan seems to be the sweet Dan but all of a sudden, he is back to the dark side where he is thinking of making the potion.
Amy isn't a good leader but she is made to act as one by the author- her character is no longer that of "the strong elder sister" one. It was okay to read. I am looking forward to reading more of it, may be the story would take a better direction in the next book. Once you have submitted your order you will receive confirmation and status update emails.
