Nick and Tesla's Special Effects Spectacular

Bright siblings—and amateur inventors—Nick and Tesla Holt are back for another thrill-a-minute adventure. This time a Hollywood movie is being filmed in town, but the real drama happens when the cameras are turned off. Mystery awaits behind the scenes, and the whole production may shut down unless the DIY detectives can crack the case, with the help of their friends Silas and DeMarco and a fresh assortment of homemade gadgets. Featuring instructions for all-new movie magic projects that kids can build themselves, this whiz-bang adventure is sure to delight fans of the series. Science and electronics have never been so much fun!
Hardcover, 256 pages
Expected publication: May 5th 2015 by Quirk Books
My Review
I have read every book in this series. Originally I got the first book for my nephews thinking this might be a book they would like. Well it ends up that I have fallen in love with this series just as much as them. I have grown very close to Nick, Tesla, their Uncle Newt, and their friends. Each of the mysteries that they find themselves solving is crazy fun. Nick and Tesla have solved several mysteries now so they are really getting better at solving them quickly.
However for some reason I could not get into this story as much as I have the other ones. While I did like the different setting. The mystery this time did not pull me in. It felt like the story either was fast paced by this I mean (glossed over with details off the antics) or not enough detail was spent on the mystery. Although I still enjoyed seeing how Nick, Tesla and their friends solved the mystery. There are some cool gadgets to build in this book. I do look forward to reading the next book in this series.
