The Dead of Night by Peter Lerangis
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
This wasn't my favorite in the series. This series is always a bit strange with the author changing every book, some of the books just work better than others, and this one wasn't one of the best. The storytelling was smooth enough, and I felt like Lerangis captured some of the emotional jeopardy and growth that the kids are going through, but it wasn't as exciting as I've come to expect, and the historical content was very disappointing. I still like the addition to the series of Atticus and Jake, and we saw a bit more of Evan in this installation as well. I liked what Ian's story as well. And Dan's continued struggle with his darker emotions was interesting. But this really wasn't the best entry in the Cahill vs. Vespers series or certainly the 39 Clues series.
In addition, I have to reiterate how disappointed I am that Scholastic chose to print these books in China.
