**** 4 Stars – Treasure Hunting for Children

This review is from:
Quest One. The Golden Scarab (The Quest Series) (Kindle Edition)
I don’t read a lot of middle grader books, however this one was quite enjoyable. JJ Sterling seemed very advanced for his age, wondering about life and the universe. His dad works in a museum and he finds a secret gateway into the past. Along with his two friends, they have to race against time and challenges to locate the amulet. It has a very treasure hunt feel, like Indiana Jones or National Treasure, except of course with kids. Add in non-stop action, and magic and you get a fantastic mix!
There is also slight humour as well – “There was a loud rumble, it sent shivers down Rani and JJ’s spine, their eyes wide with fear they looked fearfully at each other. “Sorry . . . that was my stomach. I’m so starving.” Linc said.”
I think this book would be very enjoyable to children of a young age, and possibly even older people looking for a simple adventure read. According to S.W. Lothian’s website, there is set to be 5 Quest books, with Quest Two. The Cursed Nile set to be released in 2012.
