Amulet Keepers: 03/29/16
Amulet Keepers by Michael Northrop is the second of the TombQuest books. The search for Alex's mother has taken him and Ren to the British Museum in London.
When I read, even when I'm reading a series, I draw connections between other things I've read or watched, thus populating the new book with characters I'm already familiar with. Or I imagine settings from similar books as the backdrop for this book.
In the case of Amulet Keepers I imagined Steven Universe (as Alex) and Connie (Ren) around the time when she first started learning how to sword fight. Outside of the museum, I picture their adventures taking place in a neighborhood similar to Nobody Owen's home and village (The Graveyard Book).
I can't really say more without spoilers. These books are short and adventure filled. They're a fun mixture of puzzle solving and Egyptian mythology. There is also a website but I haven't visited it.
