“The 39 Clues” series are amazingly written and “The Medusa Plot,” by Gordon Korman is no exception. Let’s start off with the series. The original series were about the Clue Hunt, and the fight between different branches of Cahills, the most powerful family in the world. Those books were written with so many true facts and events, they could almost be called Non-Fiction. No I’m just joking. Now this is the second part of the series and although they are just extending the series longer then it has to be, they are still making the storyline intriguing.
The Medusa Plot well describes this book for reasons that I cannot say to prevent this from being a spoiler. This book is completely related to Medusa in some way. This book starts off with the kidnappings’ of different Cahills. The kidnapped being Fiske Cahill, Reagon Holt, Natalie Kabra, Nellie Gomez, Alistair Oh, Ted Starling, and Phoenix Wizard. There is no respective order of when they were kidnapped because they were all kidnapped at the same time. Back in Attleboro, Amy and Dan Cahill were almost kidnapped. If it weren’t for Dan, they would be with the other victims in a cell. When they reach home, they find out about these kidnappings. While talking about this, someone had parachuted a cell phone to them. No company, no model. When it’s turned on, a message appears from this mysterious being who calls himself Vesper One. The message was commanding Dan and Amy to go to Florence, Italy. If they did not reach there by the next morning, one of the hostages would die. William McIntyre tells them about the Vespers. Not much, but who the founder/ ancestor was. Damien Vesper, a great alchemist whose research was destructive. Dan and Amy reach Florence the next morning and it is there where the real story begins.
