Their quest to bring him down takes them from New York to London, and from the land of the living to the deep underground tombs of the long dead. Will they be in time to stop the Death Walker before he gets too powerful . . . or will the tombs claim them, too?

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Praise for TombQuest:

A New York Times Bestselling novel

"Like a preteen Indiana Jones and Lara Croft, Alex and Ren make a compelling duo, and Northrop balances pathos and action effectively to engage readers. Funny and smart, Alex and Ren are excellent companions for this fast-paced and scorpion-filled ride."-- Kirkus Reviews

"A thrilling adventure rich in Egyptian mythology and magic. . . . Sure to be a blockbuster." -- Booklist

“Nonstop action . . . reluctant readers will enjoy the fast-paced story and the accompanying interactive computer game, and they will look forward to future installments.” -- Voice of Youth Advocates
"The plot moves quickly and will appeal to reluctant readers looking for adventure [and] danger." -- School Library Journal

Gr 3–6—In the spirit of "The 39 Clues" (Scholastic), "TombQuest" is a "read the book, play the game" experience across several platforms. In this second installment, which can stand independent of the online gaming experience, Ren and Alex must stop a Death Walker, an evil and ancient Egyptian spirit, from reeking havoc in modern day London. This is a plot-driven thrill ride with plenty of adventure and a bit of history woven in. Kids who enjoy the books will be eager to try their hand at the online games that extend the world.

The first book was just good, but this was great! Some parts might seem a little predictable, but most of it is an Egyptian thrill ride!
