Hardy Boys Adventures #7 Shadows at Predator Reef – Synopsis

Here’s the synopsis for Hardy Boys Adventure #7, Shadows at Predator Reef:

When Frank wins an internship at the Bayport Aquarium, he’s stoked at the chance to not only earn school credit, but to also geek out about one of his favorite subjects—aquatic life. And his brother Joe is equally jazzed about taking scuba diving lessons from the super-cute instructor, Aly. But both boys’ excitement comes screeching to a halt when the aquarium’s most valuable asset goes missing: a rare two-hundred-pound sea turtle named Captain Hook.

Frank and Joe stumble upon a network of underground tunnels hidden beneath Bayport…and realize the aquarium is a secret entry point. Could the aquarium be the newest target of a sinister aquatic smuggling ring? And can the boys snag the gang’s mastermind before they end up in treacherous waters?

The underground tunnels sound intriguing. Mystery has potential. Looking forward to the cover, which, hopefully, will be released soon. 🙂 Paperback, hardcover and ebook editions will be available from many booksellers on the 21st of October and will be 160 pages.

I’m really looking forward to when the Hardy Boys Adventures catches up with Hardy facts and the 21st century by having in this series both Callie, who’s Frank’s girlfriend and true love, as well as Iola, who’s Joe’s girlfriend and true love. These details can be seen in The Hardy Boys (Mysteries #1-#190 2005), which is the main, essential, real deal Hardy Boys series. ❤

    • Hi, Alex! 🙂 It is fun to read what the story is about well ahead of when the book will be available to purchase. It gives us a taste of the mystery and gives us something to look forward to in reading. 🙂 Hopefully this book will be the best yet in this Adventures series; I know that you, Ann, many more and I would appreciate that! 😀 Callie

        • Hi, Jeremy! 🙂 Wow! 😀 Congratulations on that hundred!! 🙂 That’s cool. 😎 Thank you for sharing your overall opinion on the book. 🙂 Since you like it, I think I might read it, too. 🙂 Callie

        • Hi Jeremy! 🙂 Excellent – congrats! 🙂 Have you read all of the ones so far in the series? 🙂 I haven’t read Shadows at Predator Reef yet. Whenever I do, I’ll want to do a review on it.

  1. Yes! Good to see a fan of the original canon Hardy Boys (well, revised text version anyway.) I hold to that one as the original canon too. The Hardy Boys Casefiles is a great, fun series- but it is its own alternate universe, as are the Undercover Brothers and Adventures series. But yes- hopefully, we will see both Callie and Iola in the Hardy Boys Adventures books. Chet has already shown up, so it stands to reason that (since this doesn’t seem to be Casefiles continuity) Iola will show up eventually too. 🙂

    • The Hardy Boys series (1-190, 2005) is definitely my favorite – it has the coolest and most exciting HB books I’ve read. Most of my online/offline friends, family, feel that The Hardy Boys series is the best, too. And I’ve still got more to read! 😀
      Iola’s already shown up in the Hardy Boys Adventures, #2 Mystery of the Phantom Heist, along with Chet (and he’s also in #5 Peril at Granite Peak as is his car, the Queen!) 😎 I was just saying that I hope to see both Callie and Iola in the Hardy Boys Adventures series. You know, Callie making her first appearance in the series and Iola making additional appearances. Nope, this isn’t in the Casefiles continuity, but even if it was, although it isn’t, it would be possible for Iola to show up alive and well, since she is. 😎
      Cool Iola and Chet fact: other than the Hardy family, they are the only other two characters to be in every series/continuity with the Hardy Boys name on it, including the graphic novels and a video game. 😎

  2. The second paragraph of the synopsis is definitely intriguing! 😎 The cover should reflect that; most of the covers for the Hardy Boys Adventures has been very good. I hope the written story is very good, too; I think that there is room for improvement in that area.

    Your closing paragraph resounds with Hardy Boys book enthusiasts worldwide, Ann. 🙂 Callie

  3. I read the first chapter sample and I’m not buying it – in either sense of the word. It was embarrasingly anti-climatic. o_O It is just too silly and spoofy-goofy for me to take it seriously as a real Hardy Boys book series. O_o Instead of the well-thought-out and intriguing mysteries solved by the real Frank and Joe (like The House on the Cliff and Training for Trouble), I think that this Adventures series features two brothers who really don’t have a clue how to get a clue. 🙄 Even if I just try to read this series as an entirely different set of brothers instead of the Hardys, it still isn’t a satisfying read. 😦 Why? Because they are not just silly, goofy and clueless – that would just make it a comedic adventure. 😛 The reason this series isn’t enjoyable for me to read is because it is harmfully stupid. I believe there are a number of things in these books that are not only incorrect, but also sending the wrong message and adding to some very sad and infuriating misconceptions. 😦 😡 And they think I want to read this stuff?? O_o They need to think again, I believe. I can tell you this for certain: I’m not buying this title or the next one. I’m buying some more of the real Hardy Boys Mystery Stories instead. I was already planning on buying the good Hunting for Hidden Gold this coming winter; I think I might buy another good mystery book now, too, since this Adventures book turned out to be a dud, too, in my opinion. Which one do you recommend, Ann? 🙂 Callie

    • I love The House on the Cliff and Training for Trouble. 😎 I sure think it’s a great idea to buy more real Hardy Boys Mysteries – like Hunting for Hidden Gold. 🙂 It’s easy to see room for improvement in the Hardy Boys Adventures – Secret of the Red Arrow (the first half) and parts of Mystery of the Phantom Heist are the best so far of the series. Hmmm, let’s see, what Hardy Boys book to recommend….The Shore Road Mystery has some great action, What Happened at Midnight, Trouble at Coyote Canyon, Secret of Pirates’ Hill, etc.. 🙂 There are Hardy Boys Mysteries I haven’t read yet that I’d like to so I’ll probably read one of them instead of Shadows at Predator Reef right now. Sounds like something to check out of the library instead of buying a copy. 🙂

      • Excellent recommendations! 🙂 I will think about which one to choose this time. 🙂 Maybe I have or can get whichever of the mysteries you have not read yet and read it along with you, if you like the idea. 🙂 Callie

Please leave a reply - that would be awesome! :)
