        As the race to find the 39 Clues builds to its explosive finish, Amy and Dan must explore an ancient culture and steal a Clue guarded by thousands of the world's best-trained soldiers. It's the most dangerous Clue search yet. As their enemies crowd in, Amy and Dan find themselves separated for the first time ever. The choice lies before them - find the next Clue, or find their way back to each other. It is a splendid book and I hope you will read it and enjoy it like me.

            I can't believe Dan got lost! I know, if I were Dan I would be angry at Amy's random suspicions. How can Jonah Wizard get away with technically kidnapping Dan?

              I TOTALLY READ IT! I JUST CAN'T BELIEVE THAT JONAH JUST USED DAN FOR HIS BRAINS, AND THEN CORA WIZARD JUST WELCOMES HIM TO HER DISGUSTING FAMILY! DAN WAS RIGHT TO TELL THEM THAT HE WAS ONLY A MADRIGAL!
