The 39 Clues series include very important "Clue Cards" on the inside cover to use with the online club and gaming associated with the story. The used book listing I purchased stated that the condition of the book was "Very Good", and gave no indication that the cards were missing.
The book arrived without the cards inside. I have contacted the seller, but I've received no response.
If an item is listed as "Very Good", that would imply that it is fully intact. Selling this book without the cards is basically equivalent to ripping out the last chapter but stating that the rest of the book is in excellent condition.
He has read all of Rick Riordan's books and he loves the Artemis Fowl series and the Rangers Apprentice series.
Since he is reading adult books now I thought this 39 clues looked too juvenille for him. When I looked into the series and saw the list of characters involved in the stories, I changed my mind and got them for him. I bought them new b/c of the cards that come with the books.
He loves them but they are on the short side and he finishes them quickly. I dont feel like i'm getting my money's worth.
But still, thumbs up.
The opposition teams are also beginning to settle into grooves. The Holts are basically comic relief. The Kabras are decidedly evil. Irina is self interested but not overtly hostile. Alistair seems conflicted. Jonah is driven by hyper-competitiveness. The Starlings are still on the disabled list.
There are more glimpses of the Cahill past, both in general and Amy and Dan specifically. Amy and Dan's parents are involved in some mysterious way and Grace's fingerprints are everywhere. The man in black is hovering around but no information yet.
The writing this time is more of a general third person and does not follow and particular character. Nellie plays a more important role and I expect there to be more to her than has been revealed thus far. One also wonders about Saladin.
The Kindle edition is first rate. The book is a pleasure to read on the Kindle. The only complaint is that the preview chapters of the next installment give the reader an impression that the book is longer than it actually is.
This series has been great fun. I hope the momentum can be maintained through ten books. We're off to the far east in the next book. Highly recommended.

The Cahill family will do anything to win the contest where the prize could be world domination. This book in the series is about where they try to find out what the piece of music by Mozart is all about. Join Dan and Amy in their journey for the 39 clues.
