The missions he’s assigned are amusing and suspenseful, but sadly, he only begins to acquire insight into the real force behind his grandfather’s plan near the conclusion, far too little and too late to imply that he’s learned much from the experience.

Youth Services Book Review

The plot and tasks given to Adam are unlike any in the other books, which made this book seem very original in a series of very similar books.
