Adventure dwells in all of us. It sits quietly like a shadow, waiting to launch us into something spectacular. We all dream of incredible places. We all dream of incredible heroes. We all dream of incredible lives. Sometimes, those dreams become real.
JJ Sterling has that same yearning for adventure. To break free from the norm … to be the best he can be … to save the world … to be a hero. Enter, the Museum of Grandovia, home to a million incredible secrets. JJ has a curious encounter amid a trove of ancient treasures. Someone is calling him. Someone needs him. It’s time for a new hero to rise.
A long-time feud between two powerful brothers, Seth and Horus, threatens the fragile peace in ancient Egypt. JJ and his best friend, Linc, must transcend time to save the day. Joined by new ally, Rani, they embark on a perilous race through scorching deserts, and temples full of hidden chambers primed with deadly traps. All the while, an army of deadly statues, known as Uberdiles, are determined to stop them at all cost.
It’s up to the three to find the mysterious Golden Scarab, defeat the threat of evil and save history. If they fail, the impact on the future will be a disaster.

“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.”
