The 39 Clues: Vepsers Rising

This book is the crossover novel between the two series about the 39 Clues. Four great authors -- Rick Riordan, Peter Lerangis, Gordon Korman and Jude Watson -- team up.
Summary: The Cahills thought they were the most powerful family the world had ever known. They thought they were the only ones who knew about Gideon Cahill and his Clues. The Cahills were wrong. Powerful enemies — the Vespers — have been waiting in the shadows. Now it’s their time to rise and the world will never be the same. In Vespers Rising, a brand new 39 Clues novel, bestselling authors Rick Riordan, Peter Lerangis, Gordon Korman and Jude Watson take on the hidden history of the Cahills and the Vespers, and the last, terrible legacy Grace Cahill leaves for Amy and Dan.
I really liked this book, my main problem with it though is the writing style. The first two parts [by Rick Riodan and Peter Lerangis] were very blunt and boring, which is disappointing because I know that both of them [especially Riordan] are truly good writers. But the parts by Gordon Korman and Jude Watson were super exciting and fun. Amy and Dan have finally adjusted to their environment, and it's interesting to be with them when they aren't so clueless.
Though there is nothing special about this book, it does really make for a fun, exciting ride.
