The Medusa Plot
In Vesper's Rising, the last book in The 39 Clues series, reader's are introduced to another threat to the world and the Cahill family..the Vespers. Authors Korman, Lerangis, Watson, & Riordon are back in a new series of The 39 Clues called Cahills Vs. Vespers. Although Dan & Amy have some harrowing adventures in The 39 Clues series, nothing has really prepared them or readers for the turn the books take in this new series. In The Medusa Plot, Vesper One has organized a worldwide kidnapping spree of Cahills. Using these hostages, which include both Nelly & Uncle Fisk, Vesper One is able to use Dan & Amy like puppets to perform tasks for him around the world. Their task in The Medusa Plot is to steal the Medusa painting from the Louve in France. If Amy & Dan fail, then Vesper One will kill one of the hostages. It's a race against time and a race against the Vespers.
This new series is very different from The 39 Clues. Where the previous series had some dark spots, this particular series has some blood spots, as one main character is shot and another main character is killed. The series is still exciting and as excellently written as before, but it should be recommended for older, more mature reader's.
