Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Cahills aren't the only family searching for the Clues. . . .

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 its 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.

About the Author

Rick Riordan is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series for children and the Tres Navarre series for adults. His books have won many accolades including a mention on the 2005 New York Times Notable list for The Lightning Thief. Rick lives with his family in San Antonio, Texas.

Peter Lerangis was born in 1955 in Brooklyn, New York, and grew up in the suburb of Freeport, Long Island. Though his interests in high school were journalism, drama, and music, Lerangis, the grandson of Greek immigrants with a strong work ethic, felt the need to enter a “respectable” profession. He majored in biochemistry at Harvard, hoping to become interested in medicine, and then applied to law school, only deciding at the last minute not to go. After working as a singing waiter in Nantucket, Lerangis moved to New York, where he worked as an actor for eight years.

Between acting jobs, Lerangis worked as a freelance copyeditor, and it was then that he rediscovered his interest in writing. His first books were novelizations of popular movies, a unique kind of writing he still does today. “For a lot of kids, novelizations are the first books they'll willingly read,” he explains. “I believe that a good one will turn kids on to reading in general, which is exciting to me.” Lerangis has also written young adult thrillers and created several series with the same goal in mind, and to his great delight the first book in his science fiction/mystery series, Watchers, was cited by the American Library Association as one of its 1999 Best Books for Reluctant Readers.

Lerangis lives in New York City with his wife, who is a singer, pianist, and songwriter, and their two children.

Gordon Korman is the author of Zoobreak, Swindle, and Son of the Mob, as well as the On the Run series and the Island, Everest, Dive, and Kidnapped trilogies. He lives on Long Island.
