ALA Booklist
The 39 Clues brand churns forward with this third volume in the Unstoppable series. With J. Rutherford Pierce getting closer to a presidential bid (and then world destruction, natch), siblings Dan and Amy Cahill continue their mission to create a serum to strip him of his powers, this time heading to Guatemala for the next ingredient, "riven crystal," which looks to be hidden somewhere in the Mayan ruins of Tika. Standiford, the series' latest helmer, tamps down the snark welcome change things get serious upon Amy's deadly ingestion of the serum. But there's only so much Standiford can do with the usual grind of black-suited bad guys and loud, action-packed set pieces (runaway choppers, zip lines, etc.). Still, fans will be fans, and, as always, the book comes with collectible cards and links to an online game.
Horn Book
Cahill siblings Amy and Dan continue their dangerous mission to stop evil media mogul Pierce from world domination in the spinoff series' second and third books. Relationships are tested and loyalties questioned when Amy takes matters into her own hands in Breakaway and makes a rash decision in Countdown. Plot development feels a little sluggish, but action-heavy moments raise the stakes.

Life or Death

The clock has run out for thirteen-year-old Dan Cahill. As head of the most powerful family the world has ever known, he and his older sister, Amy, have been in the crosshairs for too long. Dan and Amy have always managed to stay a step ahead of their enemies, but it was only a matter of time until luck failed them.

Now Dan is hopelessly trapped and nothing can save him. Nothing except unleashing an evil into the world even worse than the enemies closing in. As Dan hovers between life and death, Amy has a terrifying decision to make. Just how far is she willing to go to save her little brother?
