Review: The Emperor's Code by Gordon Korman

The Emperor's Code
(The 39 Clues, Book 8)
Author: Gordon Korman
Publication: Scholastic Inc. (April 6, 2010)
Description: As the race to find the 39 Clues builds to its explosive finish, Amy and Dan must explore an ancient culture and steal a Clue guarded by thousands of the world's best-trained soldiers. It's the most dangerous Clue search yet. As their enemies crowd in, Amy and Dan find themselves separated for the first time ever. The choice lies before them – find the next Clue, or find their way back to each other.

Be the first to find out where the next Clue is! There are three messages hidden on the cover of Book 8: The Emperor’s Code. Go to for a blow up of the cover, enter the secret messages you find, and unlock a page from The Emperor’s Code that reveals the whereabouts of the next Clue.
My Thoughts: This was another exciting episode in the 39 Clues series. Dan and Amy are in China. They get separated and Dan falls in with Jonah Wizard for a while as they visit a Shaolin monastery and Emperor Qin's terracotta army. Meanwhile, Amy and Nellie explore the Great Wall of China. Both find clues that lead them to Mount Everest and to a confrontation at the peak. They also learn a little more about Nellie and she questions where her loyalties lie.
