Another fantastic installment in the 39 Clues series!

Now, to gush...

I love the teamwork displayed in this particular book. (Good morals for kids!) -- Even competitors can work together for the greater good.

The historian is me loves how the author incorporated the great "legend" of the Amber Room and made it real. The Amber Room was an actual room that Nazis "stole" during WWII -- after that, no one has been able to relocate the pieces used in the room since. Kudos to Patrick Carmen for including this piece of history into a modern book.

Can't wait for the next book in the 39 Clues series.

Also, the audiobooks for this series are produced in great quality!

Amy and Dan receive a telegram with instructions to find a place where they will discover the answer to their next location for a clue. There they uncover two disguises and two plane tickets to Russia.

Hot on their trail are several family members, and while uncovering the tasks to get the clue, Amy and Dan realize that they're not going to be able to solve all the tasks under the time restriction.

So they do the unthinkable - they team up with the Holts. They each cover three locations, where they find and solve each piece of the clue before passing along the information.

But someone doesn't want them getting too close and they're doing their best to make sure the kids don't find the secret room. Has Amy and Dan's luck run out, or will they put themselves ahead again in the race for the thirty-nine clues?

THE BLACK CIRCLE continues with the worldwide treasure hunt that leaves Amy and Dan in a spotlight of danger. Their puzzle-solving skills leave them as the family team to beat. This series is an amazing adventure to devour.
