The first book in this groundbreaking multimedia series sends readers around the world on the hunt for the 39 Clues. Written by #1 NYT bestseller Rick Riordan, and backed by $100,000 in prizes! Minutes before she died Grace Cahill changed her will, leaving her decendants an impossible decision: "You have a choice - one million dollars or a clue." Grace is the last matriarch of the Cahills, the world's most powerful family. Everyone from Napoleon to Houdini is related to the Cahills, yet the source of the family power is lost. 39 Clues hidden around the world will reveal the family's secret, but no one has been able to assemble them. Now the clues race is on, and young Amy and Dan must decide what's important: hunting clues or uncovering what REALLY happened to their parents.

The 39 Clues Book 1: The Maze of Bones
Average rating
4.2 / 5
Not a good ending
April 16th, 2016
I found it very frusterating because it was written very well, but at the end there was not a very good resolution. I think you should have made it so that they got all 39 clues so we could know who got the treasure. It feels like it is a scam to get us to buy all of the books.

To be honest, I'm a fan of Riordan. I love his humour and the story is really interesting and will definitely continue reading the Book Two.

This is an awesome series, and I think this book is the perfect way to start is off. The plot is very suspenseful, and the story is all historical and realistic fiction. Great for kids in 4th grade and up. The plot is appropriate an has no bad language and sexual content. This series is made and put together by several different authors, so I recommend you search 39 clues when at the library. P.S. The second book is called The Sword Thief, by Peter Lerangis!
