Summary of the Book
When seven members of their family were kidnapped by a sinister organization known as the Vespers, thirteen-year-old Dan Cahill and his older sister, Amy, vowed they’d stop at nothing to bring the hostages home. But then the ransom comes in and the Vespers demand the impossible. Amy and Dan have just days to track down and steal an ancient map. The only catch? No one has seen the map for half a century.
Now Amy and Dan are on a desperate search that will lead them to the Nazis, spies, a mad king and some of history’s dirtiest secrets. It’s the race of their lives…and one misstep will mean certain death for the hostages.
Reviews of A King’s Ransom
To be honest, this book had really stepped up the pace of action. I felt Amy and Dan did the usual research faster therefore allowing for suspenseful action to come more. The book had a twist for every turn like a good event for every life-threatening event. This speed up in action and horror makes the book more intense and enjoyable. (by Brandon, goodreads.com)
