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 itu2019s 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.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melinda | 2/20/2014

    " I loved the background that this story provides! It was a quick, fun book! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cave | 2/18/2014

    " This book is called Vespers Rising by Rick Riordan. It is the eleventh book in the thirty nine cluse series. This boook is about some of the majer cahills that helped shaped their family, Gidion Cahill, Madilie Cahill, Grace cahill, and Dan and Amy cahill. Each story takes place in a different time period. This book is mainly a mixture of storys of the characters conflicts with their enemy, the Vespers. The Vespers are a organization rather than a family, like the cahills. The Vespers are trying to recover a ring that Gidion Cahill had when he made the master syrum, which makes the person who drinks it, have powers that are unbeliveable to anyone. I would recomend this book to people who like books that like action adventure books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Donna | 2/15/2014

    " Four authors on this one - count 'em! Three take on the task of creating the 39 clues back story on three important characters. The last moves forward the story from the first 10 books. It all works and is well paced, giving this series a fresh new road to careen down. Rick Riordan is most certainly not done with this series and (see any of my previous posts on him) I hope he continues to get help from his friends. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kathleen | 2/12/2014

    " I enjoyed the first ten 39 Clues books. Although the plot was completely implausible, I loved how they managed to work historical details into a mystery/adventure series for kids. I was happy to discover that they would continue to add books to the series after the clues plot line ended. I was very disappointed with the execution of this book. Kids who were very familiar with the format of the first 10 books might be confused by the four segments. I didn't really understand the reason for this change. The sections that were set in the past seems to have no regard for historical accuracy at all and the same information could have been conveyed during the adventures, as it had been in the earlier books. "

    " T think the book was awesome. There is action and action!!! The awesome escapes and deadly enemies. They are fighting for their lives now. They are doing the most important thing in the world now. They are protecting the Gideon Cahill ring! Totally read this! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Karl Kranich | 1/29/2014

    " Listened to audio book on our trip back from PA. Renewed my desire to read the whole series, which Anja and Liesl have read several times. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chris | 1/26/2014

    " I like the shift in focus for the series. I am really very pleasantly surprised at the fact that Book #11 is still just as interesting as Book #1. I usually drop out of a series long before this, and I'm going to keep on going. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Debbie | 1/19/2014

    " This was interesting to read. Amy and Dan are back. I hope that there will be several more books in this series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anita | 10/11/2013

    " After 10 books in the '39 Clues' series, the 11th book finally presents the back story -- and is a collaborative piece between 4 different authors, who had previously written one (or two) books each in the series . And this is the best story, so far.... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jovy Yaplito | 6/8/2013

    " Why can't the Cahill kids just live in peace??? Oh yeah, there won't be any more books if they did...silly me...loved the book!!! can't wait to start the next book series!!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kassie | 5/2/2013

    " Good! guess we aren't finished with the 39 clues...looks like there will be more.....That's good!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gio Gumban | 1/27/2013

    " the past, present and future of the Cahills. It's a good start to introduce a new series! :) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 JJ | 1/18/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tee Jay | 9/8/2012

    " I love the backstory on how everything started. It's always fun to read about the Cahills. I'm definitely reading the next books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kathryn Yegge | 2/13/2012

    " I thought the series was over with book 10, but here's book 11 that's both a prequel and then the final installment (I think). I really liked how they wrote this book. One of my biggest annoyances is prequels, however, they take this book and make it both a prequel and a sequel. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Selena | 10/7/2011

    " OMG it tells exatly how it happened from the beggining! Including Points of view from Damien Vesper, Gideon Cahill, Madeline Cahill and Grace Cahill! And lastly it ended with Amy and Dan. This book is the book to read in the 39 clues series. Its a must read! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Hosanna Bell | 7/23/2011

    " To much history for me. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Peggy | 5/16/2011

    " I didn't see how they were going to be able to continue this fun series after all 39 clues were found/uncovered, but this book is a great start to Amy & Dan & Cahill Clan's "next chapter."! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stephanie | 5/16/2011

    " Loved the back stories more than the present day action. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Debbie | 5/15/2011

    " This was interesting to read. Amy and Dan are back. I hope that there will be several more books in this series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Benjamin | 5/9/2011

    " this book helped me catch up, because in august 2011, they are going to have a new 39 clue book.
    like the other 39 clue books, thsi one is cool! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Julia | 5/9/2011

    "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dan | 5/8/2011

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jen | 5/7/2011

    " I was going to give this two stars, but upon reflection realized that I really enjoyed the Grace Cahill kicks butt section (Gordon Korman). "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Valerie | 5/7/2011

    " This is a good intro into the second series of the 39 Clues. I have been impressed (with the exception of one book) how multiple authors are keeping a series going with continuity. In this book 4 authors each write a section of the book, and it flows well. I am looking forward to the next book. "
