What makes this series so unique is the fact that 7 authors are writing 10 novels to tell a single continuous story. In the series the Cahill's family matriarch passes away. In her will she leaves one million dollars to each family member, or they can trade that money-order for a clue that will lead to the treasure that will lead them to become the greatest Cahill of all time. There are four branches in the family: Janus, Ekaterina, Lucian and Thomas. Each branch has its own strengths and weaknesses. Our story follows Amy and Dan Cahill, orphans who choose to take the quest. The adventure crosses continents and has clues hidden in art, architecture, music and more. The books teach a lot about historical characters, events and places. These cards supplement the story, they are also used for online games to help you solve the 39 clues and the chance at $100,000 in prizes for solving the puzzles.

This Card Pack supplements books 1, 2 and 3. There are 16 cards per card pack and a total of 55 new cards in these packs. Each card has a unique code used to enter it online, and add it to your collection to help you solve the 39 clues. The cards are great as collector's items go.

One drawback is that you cannot really trade them, because even duplicate cards have different codes and can be used online for game play differently. The artwork is great and the cards are fun and interesting. There are distinct advantages and disadvantages to how Scholastic is working these books and card packs. The concept of numerous authors writing a series together is great; it will introduce readers to a number of authors, and fans of some of the authors will be introduced to other writers. The online games are fun and interesting, the puzzles challenging and entertaining.

These are very nice cards. As a baseball card collector, I was very pleased to see the high quality and attention to detail that these cards offer. My son has has a ball examining the cards and entering them on line to play the game. Naturally, card collecting is addicting and these cards coupled with the book and game are a kid magnet. The box that the cards came in is fantastic - it protects the card and offers information on how to read the cards and enter them onto the web site. This is a very clever item and worth buying more than one set.

My son read the book and we also bought the clue cards. He has been having a lot of fun with it. He loves the Percy Jackson series so he wanted to read this book. He was not disappointed and is following the mystery on-line. His older sister who is 13 is also helping him and enjoying it as well.

My 10 year old loves the Percy Jackson series, and was excited by the arrival of this series. The book, however, seems to be more of a launch for the website and related products. Collecting 70 some odd cards, at $6.99 a pack, will certainly add up--and that's just the first series of cards. The website seems to be set up so that 'solving' the mysteries can only occur through purchasing more cards. Disappointing.

This is a part of a series of books. You can get the books, and you probably want to start at book one so everything makes sense, and then you buy the cards. You then get on line and enter the cards into the computer/website. Each card has a puzzle or a little tidbit about the 39 clues. You can solve puzzles, play games online and find out more information about the characters of the books. I, the mom of three kids, absolutely enjoys the cards they are so creative and I find the puzzle interesting to solve.

Card pack one will tie into the books 1, 2 and 3. There are a lot of cards so of course, if you have kids that enjoy the series, you may find yourself buying several sets of cards. While you may get some repeats, you will find that there are enough different cards in each pack that you are not completely wasting your money. I think we bought two or three sets of cards for books 1 through 3.

My children like to read and I rarely have a hard time finding books they enjoy. However, this just adds to the enjoyment.

Enjoy.
