2013 Readers’ Favorite Awards Finalist | Children’s Fantasy/Sci-fi
Fast forward to the modern world where 12 year old, JJ visits a museum for a day packed full of boredom. Little does he know that he’s about to get mixed up in the adventure of his life.
Desperate to fix the past, an ancient mummy from an exhibit recruits JJ and his best mate, Linc, to embark on a quest that’s full of danger and adventure. It’s not long before the pair head back in time to ancient Egypt and team up with another unlikely hero named,Rani.
Join them as they search for a mystical amulet, known as the Golden Scarab, which has the power to save the day. All the while, a gang of cranky beasts called Uberdiles (half-man half-crocodile) will stop at nothing to crush them before they can find the amulet.
Prepare for action. Prepare for adventure. Prepare for some great laughs. But most of all, prepare for the exhaustion you’ll feel at the end. The Golden Scarab is an edge-of-your-seat adventure that’s a hit with all ages. It’s bursting with bad guys, living statues, thrills, trap-laden challenges, and even a talking cat. There’s way too many exciting things to mention here. Make sure that you jump on board and become a Quester. The Quest Series is definitely one that you won’t want to miss.

HERE’S THE BUZZ
“Look out Rick Riordan (author of The Kane Chronicles), you’ve got some competition … This book was, quite simply put, a rockin’ good time. The story is solid, the characters are likable, the action is non-stop … I would recommend this book to boys and girls aged 8+…”
★★★★★ review – Mother Daughter Book Reviews
“I was enthralled by it and happily look forward to reading the next book in the series. … One thing is certain: it can be classified as good entertainment. It reminded me in many ways of the Indiana Jones series of movies, and … would make a very decent movie itself. I strongly recommend this for any reluctant readers in the target age group, with the understanding that mom and dad will also want to read it.”

★★★★★ review – Jennifer Moss / Amazon
“… I thoroughly enjoyed this beautifully written adventure novel for young people. The action was fast paced, and in places extremely gripping … I’m very much looking for the next novel in the series about JJ, Linc and Rani. Highly recommended.”
