Overview

Percy Jackson meets Indiana Jones in the New York Times bestselling epic adventure Seven Wonders!

The Curse of the King is the fourth book in a five-book series by master storyteller Peter Lerangis. This sequel to The Tomb of Shadows, Lost in Babylon, and The Colossus Rises chronicles the adventures of Jack McKinley and his friends as they face their greatest challenge yet—the long-lost Statue of Zeus. In their struggle to undo what's been done and unlock the secrets of this Wonder of the Ancient World, our heroes must confront gods, relive old battles, and face down their own destiny to save themselves—and the world—from destruction.

Rick Riordan, author of the Percy Jackson series, praised Seven Wonders Book 1: The Colossus Rises as "a high-octane mix of modern adventure and ancient secrets. Young readers will love this story. I can't wait to see what's next in the Seven Wonders series!"

So far I love the seven wonders and i'm looking forward to the next adventure. Books with ancient magical orbs that kids with super powers try to collect from around the world through risk-taking adventures (and a bit of humor) are as great as Rick Riordans! (BTW, if you like this series, you should definately try looking up ' books by Rick Riordan' trust me, you'll love 'em) Can't wait !!!!

Really good book, evan with the cliffhanger. As for the powers of the other Loculi, I'd bet money thar one of them is speed. Think about it. All of the Loculi have powers that are somewhat common in comic books. Strength, flight, invisibility, healing... all that's missing from the linup is speed. As for the others... teleportation, time travel... Wait. Time and space. TIME AND SPACE. That's it! The basic makup of the universe. In fact, I bet in the next book they find the Loculus of Time and rescue Aly! As for the wonders, they usually have something to do eith the Loculi's powers, more or less. Temple of Artemis, Pharos Lighthouse, the pyramid. Artemis was the goddes of the hunt, and hunters need to be fast, so I bet the loculus if speed is at the temple. As for the others, not sure. Time, space, lighthouse, pyramid. Not sure I see any correlation. Please reply with speculations.

Jack McKinley was an ordinary kid. Emphasis on was. Not long ago, it was revealed to him that he has a special gene that gives people “superpowers” based on their natural attributes. Now he and some other kids his age with the gene are supposed to save the world, by traveling throughout the planet going to the 7 Wonders of the Ancient World, of which only one is still standing. They need to complete their mission before a major world-catastrophe happens. And why is Marco, one of their old friends, on the bad guys’ side? What I Thought- This is the next book in a great series. Mr. Lerangis quickly brings readers up to speed, and then he dives right into the story. The characters are well-thought out. Jack is a great kid who is being hunted by evil monks. And, unlike his friends, he doesn’t really have any “superpowers,” which makes it all the more challenging. He and his two friends need to collect 7 magical orbs for two reasons: One, to save their own lives (they have a genetic mutation that gives them superpowers, but makes them have an early death), and two, to save the world. I like the suspense of their lives being at stake. I love how Mr. Lerangis pulls in history to the story and wraps an awesome adventure around it! Mr. Lerangis perfectly mixes humor, terror, action, and tragedy in this book. I am a fan of this series, and I can’t wait for the next book! *NOTE* I got a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review

The pyramid is space, because the pharoh's went to another dimension, or to another place. Maybie the light house is like a minute clock, or the light of time stetching through infinity? Keep speculating

Seven Wonders series are great books with adventure and provides the twist and turns that keep you guessing what is going or not going to happen. "The Curse of the King" is even more action packed than the previous books.

I pre-ordered the paperback (which was set to release 3/28/15) and just recieved notification that my order is cancelled. Not exactly sure why. Now I can't find the paperback on BN, Amazon, or even the publisher's website. Any ideas as to why? I have read the other 3 book and they were fabulous so I am giving this one 4/5 stars. I am just super picky about all the books being in the same format. Since the other 3 are paperback, book #4 has to be as well.
