review 1: I was very impressed with this book although this is written for the younger generation, I really enjoyed the whole concept of the story and fell in love with all the characters especially Mau. Of course the book as it is does need some editing with typos and some missing words to make complete sense of the sentences but other than that the story line is well thought out and follows through to the last page. The descriptions of the characters are very detailed and descriptive. I felt like I knew these kids. The author has really done his research and all the information about Egypt was very interesting. The really great thing I liked was the fast pace of the story line and the degree of intrigue the author played into it. All three of the kids were very intense and f... moreull of personality. They each played off each other and I found that quite intriguing. I liked the part of the plot at the end tying everything together in a way that I never saw coming, but you know I don't ever give away the ending in my reviews. I will definitely be adding the other two books in this series to my reading list. I received this book through Goodreads group "Making Connections" from the author for an honest review.
review 2: It all begins when JJ visits the Egyptian exhibit at the museum where his father works. That’s where he meets Anubis, a statue tasked with the protection of the mummy on display. Anubis needs JJ’s help to set things right in ancient Egypt where the evil god Seth is upsetting the balance of power. But JJ mustn’t go alone, so he recruits his best friend, Linc, to come along. Linc and JJ meet up with another recruit, a girl by the name of Rani, and the three of them set off to recover a golden scarab which, when delivered into the right hands, will thwart Seth and his wicked Uberdiles.The three heroes encounter one peril after another on their quest to find the scarab in this amazingly imaginative tale. Lothian writes with vivid detail and a delightful sense of humor. Due to its verbosity (it is longer than the typical middle grade read), I would recommend this book for advanced middle grade readers. less

Great book. Plenty of action. Reminded me of Indiana Jones and Matthew Reilly, but with kids.
A fun, Indiana Jones-type middle-grade adventure. I'll be checking out book 2!
