Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Praise for TombQuest Book 1: Book of the Dead:

"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

Children's Literature - Denise Hartzler
Michael Northrop brings readers book five of the “TombQuest” series that follows two friends Alex and Ren. In The Final Kingdom Alex and Ren awaken the magic of ancient Egypt. When Alex’s mother users the “Egyptian Book of the Dead” to save him, she cracks open a door to the afterlife, accidently unleashing the Death Walkers. The Order, the world’s most dangerous organization, has the most powerful Egyptian spells in their possession and is using the spells to become stronger than ever. Alex and Ren must find a way to the mummies and spirits devastating the world. They travel through portals that will allow them to enter into either the past or present world. Every portal leads to another battle. Along the way they lose an important member of the group, but they have to right the wrongs with their heavy hearts and finish closing the doors to the afterlife. This book ends the series, although many fans may wish for another book. This book is full of suspense that will keep readers engaged for hours and days. Those unfamiliar with “TombQuest,” might find it a little hard to understand the background of Alex and Ren and The Order. However, it is a good book for those who may find the “Percy Jackson” series a bit too long. As with all the other TombQuest stories, there are online games to play. Reviewer: Denise Hartzler; Ages 8 to 12.

Gr 3–7—After escaping from prison and seeing a vision of New York burning, Alex and Ren have to stop the Last Order by recapturing the Lost Spells, even though recapturing them may cost Alex his life. A labyrinthine underground prison, mummies rising from the sand, and evil spirits guarding treasures make for nonstop action in this series finale. Plenty of information about Egyptian myths is weaved seamlessly into the story, making this a good choice for budding Egyptologists. Fans of Percy Jackson will enjoy this series for the characters' friendly teamwork and the incorporation of mythology.
