Hi guys!

 

I’m the editor for the TombQuest series and I want to share a little bit about why I love these books so SO soo much.

 

First, here’s a little bit about the PLOT:

 

When Alex Sennefer’s mother uses the ancient Egyptian Lost Spells to save his life, she awakens some very powerful and dangerous magic. Not only have the Spells saved Alex, but they’ve brought five evil Death Walkers back to life.

 

Now, long-dead mummies are awakening all across the globe. New York City is overrun with scorpions. And worst of all for Alex, his mom and the Spells have disappeared. He and his best friend, Ren, will do anything to find his mom and put these evil spirits to rest—even if they have to face off against a scorpion-wielding Death Walker who has been plotting revenge for three thousand years.

 

 

How amazing would it be if all the magic of ancient Egypt, if all their powerful rituals and amulets and spells, could be used now? What if the afterlife was a real place—and what if some terribly strong spirits were able to escape from it, determined to take control of our world? That’s what author Michael Northrop asked himself, and that’s what TombQuest explores.

 

I’ve always been completely obsessed with ancient Egypt, so this was a ton of fun for me. And I was lucky to be able to work with Michael Northrop, a truly incredible author, and also a living, walking encyclopedia of ancient Egyptian facts. He’s hung out with mummies all across the world and has stories to tell! If you guys ever want to learn a little about ancient Egyptian lore, he’s the guy to ask.

 

HERE ARE SOME FUN BOOK TIDBITS!

 

If you like . . .

 

Mummies, scorpions, ancient Egyptian magic, tombs, spells, amulets--[pause for breath, pant, gasp, pant]—mind control, treasure, and/or exploring secret tunnels under New York City, this book is for YOU!

 

BFFs

 

One of the things I love about TombQuest: Book of the Dead is the awesome friendship between Alex and Ren. Alex has always been sick—in fact, he has to leave school to be home schooled—but Ren sticks by him no matter what. She’s a hard worker, and that’s true whether the task is studying for a test, battling a mummy, or simply being a good friend. I think anyone would be lucky to have a friend like Ren.

 

Don’t miss . . .

 

The hieroglyph codes! 

 

If you like solving secret codes, then don’t miss the hieroglyph messages on the cover and inside the book. There’s also a key so that you can write your own coded messages to your own BFFs.

 

“Tell us more about those magical amulets, Emily!”

 

Okay! When I was young, I had a small blue scarab amulet that I was sure could protect me from anything! In TombQuest, Alex Sennefer also gets a scarab amulet, but his can do all kinds of amazing things that mine couldn’t. (Or maybe mine can and I just haven’t figured out how to tap into its power yet!) For example, Alex can use it to create powerful winds, blasting his enemies away from him. The scarab was one of the most popular amulets in ancient Egypt because the insect was a symbol of the sun god Re.

 

What kind of amulet would you choose? Would you pick  a scarab, the symbol of rebirth? A foot amulet, to give you speed? Perhaps a wedjat eye amulet, a source of protection and strength? Or maybe a heart amulet, to protect the source of your feelings and memories?

 

 

Happy reading! Let me know what you think of the book! I would love to hear your thoughts and am happy to answer any questions, too.

 

Emily

And that's a really good question. When I first read the manuscript, I was sure the Stung Man must have been a real historical figure--but he's completely a product of Michael's imagination! However, all the details about him (like how his organs are stored in canopic jars) are true. 

 

As for Ren getting her own amulet in AMULET KEEPERS . . . I'm afraid you'll just have to read on to find out!
