Overview

Inspired by true events Hall of the Gods chronicles the adventures of an orphan boy with a phenomenal intellect...1902 AD, Egypt. Baron Algernon Northgate breaks into an unmarked tomb. Shortly after his return to England with two mummies and a collection of mysterious artefacts he vanishes without a trace...Present-day Oxford. Young Alexander uncovers a disturbing truth while searching for his lost parents: they were burnt to death in a freak accident. Worse still, it appears that he is the sole survivor of an aristocratic dynasty, believed to have been cursed. Tracking down the location of his ancestral family home, he finds it abandoned. For Alexander and his tutor, tempestuous accident-prone professor Frank Malone, this is just the start of a strange and dangerous quest. Breaking into the eerie mansion, they stumble across the journals of the Victorian Baron. The journals tell a compelling story of excavations on the Giza plateau. Determined to unearth the secrets of the Baron, the duo return to the mansion - unaware of the incredible fate that awaits them.

    Very Entertaining

    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 intrigue

    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!
