The ultimate action and adventure trilogy begins, with #1 bestselling author Gordon Korman plunging readers into the heart of the Titanic

The Titanic has hit the high seas - and moves steadily toward its doom. Within the luxury of the cabins and the dark underbelly of the ship, mysteries unfold - a secret killer who may be on board, a legacy that may be jeopardized, and a vital truth that will soon be revealed. For Paddy, Sophie, Juliana, and Alfie, life on the Titanic brings both hiding and seeking, as their lives become irrevocably intertwined.

And then, of course, an iceberg appears, and the stage is set for the final scene.

Gordon Korman wrote his first novel, This Can't Be Happening at Macdonald Hall!, when he was only 12 years old. To date Gordon has written 70 middle-grade and YA novels, including two titles in the #1 New York Times bestselling series The 39 Clues. Gordon lives in Great Neck, New York.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Collision Course Even though I know what happens to the ship, I find myself wondering what's going to happen next. The action is exciting. A thrilling read.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The Action continues The spark of adventure that was first introduced in the first book did not fade in this one. In the second book, we follow the four as the secret becomes endangered. We are also introduced to some likeable characters and it is in this book that everything changes for the four. It was pretty good, if not better than the first book.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Great Read This is the second book in the series, and it was just as great as the first book. This book has a twist in it that I did not see coming, which maded the book even better to read. The story behind this book continuies with a killer on board the Titanic, and the only people that know about this is four kids. Paddy, Sophine, Juliana, and Alfe have found themselfs tangled in a maze of mysteries, each one deadler then the next. As big as the Titanic is, these four passengers are finding it even harder to keep all there secrets from coming out into the open, and when the Titanic hits an iceberg, the voyage becomes even more dangeous then ever before. I can wait to start reading the thrid book of the series, to fine out what happens. I hope the next book is even better then the first and second books where.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thrills and History all wrapped up in one fab story Jake’s Review: Mom: Jake seriously I think you should read this, its really kind of exciting. Jake: Mom, you promised. Mom: I know but you know what I think you should try. Tell ya what give it 5 chapters and if you don’t like it I will go buy you the next beast quest book. Jake: Mom are you bribing me? Mom: Yup totally. See how all this reading has made you so smart. 2 Days Later Jake: It’s pretty scary and a little creepy but you are right, I wanted to keep reading it. There was tons of action and I really liked how smart the kids were and how dumb the adults were. Didn’t like reading it at night though since the Jack the Ripper guy was kinda creepy. Want to find out more about Jack the Ripper and the Titanic disaster, can we look up some stuff on the Internet? So since I finished reading it will you still buy me the Beast Quest. Mom: Ok, so since you told me I was right, I will definitely buy you a new book. Now go tell your father that mom was right Jake’s Rating:8.5/10 (just a little too scary and sad for my tastes) Mom’s Review: This really was a fantastic read for the middle school reader. Lots of thrills and chills and smart kids solving things without bumbling adults getting in the way. History and moral questions thrown in such a subtle way kids won’t know they are learning things. This is such a treat with middle school fiction because you want to instill in kids the love of reading but at the same time teach them things and make them think. Korman really has a talent here and I can see why he sells tons of books. Ok guys this involves the Titanic so pretty much I am prejudice towards liking it. I promised Jake I wasn’t going to make him read this, but I think he will really enjoy it. Don’t want to give away too much but this story involves some interesting theories on the identity of Jack the Ripper and also how the disaster could have been prevented. Lighttoller really comes across as a jerk which differs from some of my reading. Love it, love it. Can’t wait to read the final part of the story. Mom’s Rating: 10/10 We received this from Scholastic in Exchange for an honest review

Editorial Reviews

Praise for Gordon Korman's Titanic series:"Though best known and loved for his humorous books, Korman has proven here, as he has with the other adventure series he's penned, that he is far from a one-trick pony." - Quill & Quire"[Korman] knows how to spin a lively and engaging tale. Hanging it on an already fascinating, albeit tragic, slice of history means it wins on all levels: a thrilling account of a heart-stopping disaster, and a set of fictional characters seamlessly intertwined with real life." - The Montreal Gazette"Korman manages to tell the story of the Titanic smoothly while also introducing other elements of the early twentieth century...Altogether an enjoyable read that makes this tragic story come alive with personal narratives." - Resource Links"Highly Recommended" - Canadian Review of Materials
