Scholastic Announces Continuation of The 39 Clues Series with Cahills vs. Vespers

The 39 Clues: Cahills vs. Vespers

In a press release today, Scholastic announced the continuation of The 39 Clues multimedia adventure books with a new series called The 39 Clues: Cahills vs. Vespers.

The first book in the series, Vespers Rising, will be written by Rick Riordan, Peter Lerangis, Gordon Korman, and Jude Watson, all of whom contributed one or more books to the original series; it will be published on April 5th, 2011.

The final book in the series, its seventh, will be written by David Baldacci, author of the bestselling Sean King and Michell Maxwell novels as well as the Camel Club series of thrillers.

"I'm thrilled to be part of the 39 Clues team," said Baldacci. "A multimedia approach is wonderful fun and reaches young readers in new and innovative ways, greatly enhancing the odds of making them lifelong readers. There can be no worthier goal."

In The 39 Clues: Cahills vs. Vespers, the Cahills discover they're not the only ones who have been searching for the Clues. The Vespers, a ruthless cabal lurking in the shadows for their turn to stomp across the world stage, have also been hunting for the source of ultimate power. The Cahill family must unite to protect the Clues, and the world, against the Vespers, who have sinister plans darker than the Cahills could ever imagine, dating back to the mysteries of ancient times.
