It's a normal day for a normal boy, Chance Henry. School was over and he was playing basketball with his friend, Holly, when his dad, an archaeologist, suggested he wipe off debris from crates to prepare for a museum's new sarcophagi exhibit. Not being the athletic type, Chance was happy to oblige. <BR/><BR/>As Chance's father reads the text inscribed on the sarcophagi a magical thing happens - the mummy comes to life. This mummy, Sehti, is evil and steals Chance's father to the Underworld. Chance then meets another mummy, Osirius, who weakens Sehti temporarily, causing him to leave. <BR/><BR/>Osirius is a mummy working for good and wants to stop Sehti. Chance will do anything to get his father back, even if it means turning into a mummy himself. The tape that Osirius is wrapped in is part of a magical Anubis Tapestry, which, when wrapped around Chance's arm, gives him magical powers. Powers he will need to defeat Sehti, survive the Underworld, get his father's soul back, and master the deadly guardians of the Underworld. <BR/><BR/>I guess Chance Henry isn't as normal as he thinks, is he? <BR/><BR/>The action begins in the very first chapter. The story moves very fast, and is recommended for younger, reluctant readers.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
