my comments to other readers who should get this book

I liked this book because it was adventurous and it was a series. It has murders gold fighting and hacking. This book has kids that want to find the clues and it is a good A.R. point book for A.R readers. It is a good book because it is not high definition words you don't know. This book is fun to read because it makes you want to read the whole book with out stopping. This book makes you picture in your mind what is happening and makes you feel like your there.
