I didnt like this book as much as the others. I hated it when Evan and Natalie die. I thought Jake was better for Amy but Evan didnt deserve to die. I feel bad for Ian cuz his sister had died right after he saw her :( . Also they shouldnt be using words like hell and crap in CHILDREN'S books. Fiske doesnt talk that way in the other books so i hated him . There was too much romance goin on between jake and amy . Liked it when they crushed the vespers but didnt like it when isabel died. I wish dans dad was alive. It wouldve been better that way. Other than that i liked the book!!!

    I've been a faithful follower of the 39 clues for three years. I loved the ending to the 39 Clues, and the series was great, clever, funny, and had good characters. Then came the Vespers. I didn't like it, but it picked up a little around the third book, so I kept going. I was doing okay (skimmed, hummed, kind of kept up with the story, even when I didn't like it), but this last one just did it for me. It was sad, first of all. Someone died that I really didn't think would die and sincerely wished hadn't (really, really, wished--it was too typical and too tragic separating a-*spoiler*-sibling pair; I feel as if people who the main characters are too close too have to die in this series. It seems to be a tiring and sad rule, and yes I am categorizing Ian as a main character), but even the deaths in this one I could understand, if just a tiny bit. I still wished they hadn't happened. You don't kill kids off in a kid book, particularly ones who haven't really had time to redeem themselves of their spoiled fits.
    The bigger problem, however, and the one that shaved off another two stars, was the writing. The author was not good at any of the drama scenes. Brother and sister and friend to friend parts are horribly gushy, awkward, and embarrassing, and the romance parts are five times worse. I couldn't read a good quarter of the book because it was too unbearable, and I usually love brother-sister scenes. All the drama parts were too over-the-top and fake, and the other parts were certainly not exceptional and borderline mechanical. I understand that this is his first children's book; perhaps the author is too used to writing for adults and doesn't know yet how to tone down the writing style without messing up the book. Even kids' books are well-written, or at least the good ones are. That said, the content seemed too violent and mushy on the whole as well; more for an older crowd than those who read these. It just didn't have the feel of the other books and was highly unsatisfactory. The series should have ended at the 39 Clues because this last one just ruined it for me.

    Bgf

    This book was terrible!
    Evan dies, Natalie died, Amy and Jake are WAY too mushy, unlike the other books. Fiske is NOT the frail old man he was before, he karate-kicked a guy in the stomach! Can they forget this book and have another author write this one? Please?
