Finally, after reading all nine books, I get to the last one in this exciting series. but, wait a minute, I'm not so sure it IS the last one! Apart from the bonus book, The Black Book of Buried Secrets, that is being released on October 26, 2010 (in which the hidden secrets and mysteries surrounding history's most notorious family are uncovered) the ending of The 39 Clues left some unanswered questions. "Our adventures aren't over, Dan thought. But they are for now." So, entretemps, this series has ended but it will definitely continue sometime in the near future. Without giving too much away, here's what Book 10 reveals: 14-year-old Amy Cahill and her 10-year-old brother Dan are now expected not only to find the 39 clues first, but they are also commissioned to reunite their traitorous family-the same people responsible for their parents' death. After a month of dodging bullets, running from evil cousins and getting out of impossible situations, they aren't at all keen on forgiving and forgetting what's been done to them. But there's more to the 39 clues hunt than they've been led to believe. Even once the reader discovers what the prize at the end of the line is and what it means-power to rule the world-what's going to happen once it's discovered and taken possession of? About halfway through the book, the suspense really begins and continues full speed ahead. Haddix makes use of short chapters and cliffhanger endings to keep the reader turning the pages. This was the longest of the books at over 327 pages. The ending is satisfying but not complete, hence it may leave some readers feeling like they're hanging suspended. I look forward to the continuation. I've invested time to read this series, enjoyed it tremendously, and now I understand some things better having reached this last book. If you haven't started reading this series yet, it's worth it especially since Steven Spielberg is to direct the film production based on The 39 Clues. In addition, this book offers an interactive experience for kids. They can collect the cards that come with each books, play the games online and win prizes. There are over $100 000 in prizes for clue hunters. Well, The 39 Clues isn't over and in a way I'm glad about it. What will Amy and Dan have to face now that they've discovered a powerful secret? We'll soon find out!

After reading all of the previous books to this series I was looking forward to diving into to this one to find out what was going to happen. This book started off promising, it held more excitment, and drama then all of the other books put together! It was also more intense than any of the other books. The whole family was in this one (or all who were left of the family), Jonah Wizard, Ian, Uncle Alistar,.... some of the characters from the begining even showed up for the hunt of the last clue. This book also carried the humor that was found throughout this series! The ending was totally unexpected!!!! I mean I was the last chapter into the book and I found out that the book isn't coming to an end like it should, it is the last book after all right? I guess you will just have to find out what I did by reading to the end of the book. I have to cation the parents of this books younger audience though by saying it is intense. I think it could have almost been a teen book if the writing had been at a harder level. One of the characters didn't seem to care about human life, but with that said this book is an great example of coming together as a family and trying to forgive and forget. Enjoy.

My daughter is a "sometimes" reader; if she didn't have to read for school and I didn't require that she limit her screen time, she'd probably never pick up a book. However, this series has captured her interest--so much so that I have seen her choose to read it over some of her other favorite activities!

Into the Gaunlet was the best book that I have ever read. This book has a lot of action. When you read this book you'll want to read it when you have spare time. Into the Gaunlet is the last book in the series.For those who have not read the other nine books do not read this book it will the spoil the moments for you. I would highly recomend this book to anybody.

I haven't read much of this book yet. Plus, I don't want to be a spoiler for anyone that hasn't read this book yet, so I am going to be very vague. So far the entire series is a very good one. In fact it is the best one I have read in a long time. 39 Clues is like National Treasure. Basically Amy and Dan Cahill along with their au pair Nellie Gomez are in London to finish the clue hunt, but they have learned that now they have to unite the 4 family branches. For the 3 of them it is going to be a long book! I think that this book has been long awaited by the readers because now the will get to see how it is all I finally going to end

It is a thrilling book and it was well written. If the author is reading this, great job!!!!! It was a very good series.

I think that in this conclusion to the 39 clues series Dan and Amy will complete their mission to bring The Cahill family together and also make the potion or stone or whatever that will make them the most powerful human beings in the world but they will destroy it so no other generation of Cahills will have to go through the hunt for the 39 clues. These books are great and good reads for all ages. MKM-Madrigal

I have read The 39 Clues, The End Of the Line by Margaret Peterson Haddix. My thinking on this book when I first saw the cover was that it was going to probably be like a mystery or a game. It was kind of what I was thinking it would be as a mystery. I strongly feel the book was a 4.6 out of a 5. Nothing has changed on how I think that because it was great, but it did not have everything that people that love fiction, have. Amy Cahill and her younger brother, Dan, are trying to solve these 39 clues. They need to do that so that they can track down the people who killed their parents. Can they do it? The type of book this is is a fiction or a science fiction. I have two reasons that I really liked this book. One of the reasons are is that it is a mystery book. An example is: Can they find out and catch the people that killed their parents. My second reason that I have is that it has a sudden twist at the end. An example is they have to try survive what is coming for them. That is one of my favorite parts in the book. In conclusion to this review I am writing, I firmly love this book. I really think you should read this book if you are into fiction or science fiction. My recommendation for an age group for this group is ten through twenty. If you are in that age group you will fully understand this book and you will like this book.

Fantastic! Love this middle grade series. On the whole, the series introduces kids to history and important people. Although it might warp the true facts a bit, I don't mind for the sake of adventure and intrigue. Book 10 is positively epic. I can't imagine what even takes place in the final book of the first 39 Clues series. Guess I'm about to find out though! After reading this one it really got me to thinking. The 39 Clues would make for an awesome movie or TV series. Now wouldn't it?

Into the Gauntlet is good but not great.My favorite part was definitely the end.If this book did not have such a good ending;I would have given this book two stars.The rest of the book is sort of boring except for a couple of parts.So this book was good but not the best.For some recommended books go to The 39 Clues:Rapid Fire #5:Turbulence.Join the 39 Clues Fan Club at Unstoppable:Nowhere to Run.Read The 39 Clues Fan Club (instructions).Thanks for reading this review. -K.C
