review 1: Sorry, this kind of gets old. Not only are our heroes struggling to find pennies to fund their hunt around the globe, they are also outclassed by all the other richer rivals who are also ruthless and not above attempting murder. How stacked can it get? Seemed like an unfair flaw in the underlying premise: that although they bear the surname, they are the poorer cousins. Orphaned and yet not "claimed" by the matriarch of the family in the financial sense for seven years, and on her death, sent on a hunt spanning the globe but without the means to fund it. Yet it seemed that both Grace and Hope Cahill (the grandmother and the mother) have been on the same hunt in their respective time, yet no funds have been put aside for these young 'uns to be at least on a level playing fi... moreeld. Of course, the other thing that bugged me (as well as intrigue me) was how a bunch of writers got together to write books for this series. How do they agree on the plot? Breaking up of the action? Development of characters? Example, who agrees for poor Amy to be conned by the slimeball Ian? This is the one part I am unhappy with. As if our heroes are not already at a disadvantage in so many areas - why add this? It's unnecessary and unacceptable. At the end of the day, maybe I'm just missing Riordan's voice. I gotta wade through a lot more before Riordan comes back (Book 11)
review 2: ATTENTION! Amy and Dan Cahill have been located once again, this time in the company of the notoriously unreliable Alistair Oh. Could they have been foolish enough to make an alliance?Spies report that Amy and Dan seem to be tracking the life of one of the most powerful fighters the world has ever known. If this fearsome warrior was a Cahill, his secrets are sure to be well-guarded . . . and the price to uncover them just might be lethal. less
