Turbulence - 39 Clues Rapid Fire 5 - Clifford Riley

39 Clues Rapid Fire

Book 5

Clifford Riley

eISBN 9780545437011

Eleven Months after the Cue Hunt

Amy Cahill and her brother Dan are rebuilding their grandmother's estate, her mansion, with a few modifications: a command center for the coming battle between the Cahills and Vespers, a gym for training, and a multi-million dollar security system. Amy and Dan have invited the other members of their generation that were part of the clue hunt for the weekend. The Cahills attending are:

Amy Cahill
Dan Cahill
Hamilton Holt
Reagan Holt
Madison Holt
Natalie Kabra
Ian Kabra
Jonah Wizard

Amy has planned a strict schedule of events, but once all the kids are together, for the most part mayhem ensues. But the Vespers might be closer than Amy thinks. Of the five stories so far, this was the best. The only real continuity issue is Ian: in this one he comes to see Amy and the other family members, and in the previous one, he bails on Amy just a few months earlier and tries to push her away. We can only chalk that up to different authors writing different books and for the Rapid Fire Series under a pseudonym.

I love the original 39 Clues books, and have on my short list to read the second series The Cahills vs. Vespers, but this short series released between December 25th and December 31st 2011 really caught my attention. 7 Days 7 Short Stories each give us part of a clue and more background information on some of the characters from the books. The short stories are more than worth the price of $0.99 each.
