Reviews for The Sword Thief
Lots of intrigue for middle graders
Amy and Dan Cahill are journeying to Tokyo, to find the next clue in a giant treasure hunt that their grandmother's will initiated.
They siblings fall in stride with their elderly relative, Alistair Oh, once again --- this time forming an alliance --- which could be a deadly decision. Unless their other alliance with the Kabra siblings proves to be more deadly...
Lots of intrigue for middle grade readers. I liked the historical aspects that the readers gains from the story, whether its all true or not. by Tarissa

Amy and Dan have been waylaid at the airport en route to Japan. Instead of boarding the plane, they're taken to a room for a random search.
Meanwhile, Natalie and Ian Kabra board the plane in their place. Nellie, their au pair, has already boarded. Unsure of the next step, Amy and Dan leave the airport and find a car waiting for them. Uncle Alistair wants to work with them again, but can they trust him?
Together they head to Japan using Uncle Alistair's private jet. When they arrive in Japan, they meet up with Nellie and the Kabras. In order to find the clues, Amy and Dan know they have to compromise and make alliances, but they do not know who to trust.
Are their lives once again in danger while searching for the next clue?
THE SWORD THIEF is the third book in THE 39 CLUES series (each written by a different author - so far). I'm addicted to this series, and while a different person pens each book, they each contain so much action that it's almost impossible to differentiate between the writers.
This series has a fabulous online component, too, that you must check out if you haven't yet. by TeensReadToo
