The 39 Clues: Into the Gauntlet

In the 10th and final book in the 39 Clues series, Marget Peterson Haddix, author of The Shadow Children series takes the helm.
Summary: Amy and Dan Cahill are in London on the last leg of the Clue hunt, investigating the lost years of William Shakespeare. But as they close in on a shocking discovery, all the rules change. Who is an enemy and who is a friend? With the fate of the world in their hands, Amy and Dan have to make devastating choices. A single mistake could lead to fatal consequences and an unthinkable end to the hunt.
This book was fascinating. Shakespeare is one of my favorite historical figures and I was really happy he was incorporated into the series. I thought all the characters were a lot better portrayed, showing the many parts of them, not just the ones they're best known for. I thought the plot was perfect [though at times it's very confusing]. I thought that the villain or villains were perfectly depicted, and it was very easy to believe that they truly did the deeds that took place. This book is a fun, fast-paced novel; Probably my favorite of the series.
4.5/5
P.S.: I just got this book, but was too excited to wait to post it in a "In My Mailbox." Sorry folks!
