Overview

Natasha and Alex imagined their long awaited trip from London to visit their archaeologist mother's excavation would be amazing. After all, the team was uncovering the tomb of an ancient Mesopotamian Warrior Queen and her fascinating, precious possessions. But almost immediately upon their arrival in Medinabad, they are ambushed at gunpoint en-route to the camp, and the shaken children doubt things could get any worse. But they are wrong. Reluctantly thrown together with two Italian teens visiting their father at the dig, the four embark on a thrilling desert adventure that will tie them together... in more ways than one.

This is a family adventure,with a dramatic backdrop, well written, fun interesting and at last something refreshing and different. The author develops the teens characters through the book, so the reader feels they know them very well by the end of it. Set in the desert on an archaeological dig, four teens from two different families get into big trouble while their archaeologist parents excavate an ancient queen's tomb. It held my attention throughout the book, as there was a lot of interesting things going on within the dig as well as what was happening to the kids. There is also an underlying story above and beyond the children's adventure, which I suspect, and hope, will continue through subsequent books, that will bring the two families together. A good read. And at last something different and interesting too. We as a family of young teens look forward to reading the sequel
