Amulet Keepers: 03/29/16

Amulet Keepers by Michael Northrop

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.

Four stars
