The history lesson in this book focuses around the Romanovs, Rasputin and general Russian history. Patrick Carman does a great job of including a lot of information without the fictional book appearing like a history lesson. The story flows and has an amazing pace. Once you pick it up and start reading it you will not be able to put it down. With any book in a series there is always hesitation to pick it up, knowing it will be months before the next one comes out. However once I started this one I could not put it down.
This series is amazing. First the concept was intriguing - one continuous story told over 10 books but 7 different authors. It will introduce fans of some of the authors to other authors. All of the authors have won multiple awards across different areas. Together they are telling an amazing story of an adventure around the world and through history. Following members of the 4 clans in the Cahill family, the Janus, the Ekaterina, The Lucians and the Tomas, these families have been the movers and shapers of history and now they are on a chase for 39 clues that will lead them to the greatest treasure in history. The Black Circle is a great book in a great series.
(First published in Imprint 2009-10-09.)
Hot on their trail are several family members, and while uncovering the tasks to get the clue, Amy and Dan realize that they're not going to be able to solve all the tasks under the time restriction.
So they do the unthinkable - they team up with the Holts. They each cover three locations, where they find and solve each piece of the clue before passing along the information.
But someone doesn't want them getting too close and they're doing their best to make sure the kids don't find the secret room. Has Amy and Dan's luck run out, or will they put themselves ahead again in the race for the thirty-nine clues?
THE BLACK CIRCLE continues with the worldwide treasure hunt that leaves Amy and Dan in a spotlight of danger. Their puzzle-solving skills leave them as the family team to beat. This series is an amazing adventure to devour.
