Valley of Kings: 12/26/16

Valley of Kings by Michael Northrop

Valley of Kings by Michael Northrop is the third book in the five part Tombquest series. Alex and Ren are in Egypt to look for powerful lost spells to help them defeat the Death Walkers.

Unfortunately Egypt is in chaos — magical chaos. Getting to the Valley of the Kings is a trial. No way is easy or safe.

The closer they get, the worse things become. The Valley of Kings, while it does pretty much shut down for the summer season, now it's physically closed off. It's hotter than hot, supernaturally hot. The why behind this deadly phenomena is the big mystery of this volume.

Fortunately for Alex and Ren, they have help from some unlikely sources: namely the mummified cat they met in The Amulet Keepers. There's also a celebrity cameo — Tutankhamen. Here he's portrayed a bit like the pharaoh in Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb (2014).

If this volume isn't enough King Tut for you, check out these great stories:

  1. Diary of the Boy King Tutankhamen by June Reig
  2. Laughter of Dead Kings by Elizabeth Peters
  3. Tut: The Story of My Immortal Life by P.J. Hoover
