Very entertaining read. The story is fast paced and set against a backdrop of Ancient Egypt's Hall of the Gods which makes it more interesting. A good combination of action and intrigueWas this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

If you are a mid-teen and a genius who is about ready to enter college, you don't need the magic of a wizard. Your ingenuity will get you into as much trouble as any one young fellow can handle. Yes, that is Alexander. When he finds a mummy in the big old house in England where he has been raised by his adoptive family who found him alongside a road when he was a mere toddler, his nose begins to twitch. That twitch, however, doesn't lead him into the excitement of Bewitched, but takes him to the long forbidden and hidden halls of the pyramids of Ancient Egypt. You will want to turn the pages as fast as you can to see what devilish adventures Alexander will get into next. Meanwhile, he has to keep up his studies at the College. G. M. Masterson has etched a fetching tale that will have you spellbound, and the story in itself is almost magical. If you can't get enough of Harry Potter, this is your next best bet! And just like Harry, I can guarantee that kids and grownups alike will want to know where Alexander is going to travel next. We can only hope this is the start of more Alexander adventures! A fantastic debut novel by an Oxford scientist!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
