First I want to say that I am on Susanna Leonard Hill’s blog for her “Would You Read It Wednesday” post. It is a feature that people send in pitches for books they wrote and other people tell them if they’d read it (and why/why not). I entered the pitch for a chapter book I wrote. Please check it out HERE and tell me – “Would you read it?”!
NOW ON TO THE REVIEW!!!

JJ, Linc, and Rani are back in an all new adventure! When the Nile mysteriously disappears (yes the whole river disappears), they are called back in time to Ancient Egypt again to bring the Nile back. They later find out that Hapi, the Nile god, was kidnapped and the Nile followed him. The trio’s mission – to find and save Hapi! The enemy – unknown… and very dangerous. Follow the three friends as they set off on a great adventure across ancient Egypt!
The second book in this series is even better than the first (see my review of Book 1 – The Golden Scarab HERE)! Mr. Lothian wrote a great story in a really fun setting – ancient Egypt. This was an exciting book! It has a lot of humor and action! I like that. JJ, Linc and Rani are the same great characters as they were in the first book, but in this one JJ really stood out for me. The new characters in this book were awesome too (especially the lisping sphinx)! The book was written well for kids and it kept me turning the pages from the start. I like the new cover art Mr. Lothian has on both of the books in the series too. I think kids 9+ will enjoy this story!
