Reviews of The Emperor’s Code
I liked this chapter in the 39 Clues saga more than the previous one. It has all the features that make this series so enjoyable – likeable protagonists, breakneck pacing, interesting educational material tightly woven into the plot, global settings, and mystery and intrigue. This outing had all that and some more.
The ongoing mystery of Nellie and whom she is working for gets some more play here.
Finally, the setting of this book, China, is used in masterful fashion by author Korman. Korman seems to have a talent for researching his locales and working them into his books effectively. His Everest climax was very effective and exciting.
Highly recommended. If you liked the previous books you’ll like this one. (by Jim Davis, amazon.com)
