24436843 Mission Titanic by Jude Watson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Follow the Leader

At only seventeen years old, Ian Kabra is head of the Cahills, the most powerful family in the world. He has presidents on speed dial, generals at his beck and call. Ian knows he’s an ideal leader and the only man enough for the job. There’s just one small problem: He’s already messed up big-time.

A Cahill from the past calling himself the Outcast has risen to challenge Ian with an impossible test. The Outcast has re-created four of history’s greatest disasters and dared Ian to stop him. If Ian and his allies can’t decipher the Outcast’s hints in time, innocent people will die. Ian’s only chance to beat the Outcast is to track down his former allies, Amy and Dan. But finding Amy and Dan will demand from Ian an impossible sacrifice . . .

I picked this book up at the library recently. I am sadly supper behind and missed most of the books that came between the original series and this one. I found I was able to easily keep up, and despite a few spoilers from the previous books, it flows easily. With a cast of new characters, along with familiar faces, it's one wild ride!

The newest threat to the Cahill family, a stranger known only as The Outcast has gathered a team of the family's most dangerous enemies, and they are out for revenge! See how The Outcast seeks to stop the Cahill's by recreating some of histories worst disasters, and  how the kids once again try to save innocent lives while stopping powerful forces!
