    Perfect for fans of the "39 Clues" or "The Infini

    Perfect for fans of the "39 Clues" or "The Infinity Ring" series - 3 1/2 STARS

    Review Tally - based out of 5

    OVERALL: 3 1/2 STARS

    Story/Plot: 4 - This is actually a cleverly executed book/series. This series reminds me of the "39 Clues" series, as well as the "Infinity Ring" series for young adults. These books inform the readers of various different historical facts - or in the case of the "I,Q" series both historical and current affairs - while providing an interesting adventure for the protagonists and the readers.

    Re-read Value: 2 - I'll be honest here, I, personally, would probably not re-read this book. But I would like to say owning it wouldn't be a bad thing. I think it contains a lot of interesting facts and information and there are sure to be other readers out there who might like to review/remember certain information dropped in the book or who might just like to re-read the adventures of Q and Angela.

    Continue Series: 3 - 50/50. I think this series is an interesting concept and presently, for me, I don't feel a rush at the current moment to read the second one in the series. Although I do say that, I am intrigued by the series and plan to keep it on the back burner, so when I have some time, I will continue the adventures of Q and Angela.

    Characters: 4 - There are a lot of interesting characters in this series and not just Q and Angela. I think readers will quite enjoy the various types of characters and while reading it, the "Some Old Spooks" characters reminded me a little of the characters in "Red."

    Cover: 3 - The cover is enterprising, especially as it incorporated the I & Q. For the series, it is a good design and will help readers recognize the various books in the series. On the other hand, this series is a young adult series about a boy and his sister who become involved in international intrigue and gives the reader valuable intelligence regarding current affairs. Looking at the cover, you wouldn't see that.

    Genre Fulfillment: 5 - I know you might think this is a pretty high number considering the comment I have posted up above. As I just stated up in the Cover Rating, this series features and Q and his step-sister Angela as they tackle spooks, terrorists and travel across the country - the United States - as their respective parents pursue their music career. As they travel, the two main characters drop historical information, interesting facts about various cities/locations, as well as inform the reader about the current state of the world.

    Personal Involvement: 3 - After writing the above, I am left with one thought - in 50 years time, although the "current" information will not be exact, I honestly feel it will be similar. Sadly I do not think we as humans learn from the mistakes of our pasts. Maybe, just maybe, readers of this series will gain some wisdom from this series and we could break the cycle.
