Michael Belmont has always dreamed of leading a more adventurous life, but when it actually happens, he ends up getting more than he ever bargained for. Michael is sent to stay with his best friend Liam in Scotland while their parents conduct research at an ancient Egyptian necropolis. All is well until the boys get news that their parents have disappeared. Now Michael, his sister Abbey, and Liam suddenly find themselves in a race to obtain an ancient magical artifact that could be the only key to rescuing their parents- before it’s too late. Come on a journey with Michael and his companions as they unravel the mysteries of a medieval Scottish castle, get kidnapped by angry werewolves, and become entangled in a war that has been raging for thousands of years.

What a wonderful book.  It's a combination of Egyptian mythology, celtic lore and wonderful characters.  Michael, his sister Abby and Liam are three young children who are entirely believable and delightful to read about.  The story begins in a fabulous Scottish castle and continues to Egypt.  I could hear the ghost bagpiper piping as I read the story.  I encourage anyone who likes Indiana Jones to read this book.  It is a lot of fun for both children and adults alike!  I can't wait for the second book to arrive!  Free right now for Kindle

  1. I missed it for free on the kindle- but this book sounds great. I love adventures and all types of mythology. I will have to give this one a try!
