Hello everyone SUPER READER here! I’ve come to announce the winner of the super-novel Sidekicked by John David Anderson! The super-winner of the super-book is the super Mr. Laj who has the super ability to format super comments to look super-official (okay that super power is even super-lamer than Drew’s power in Sidekicked). Anyway, if you missed Erik’s interview with Mr. John David Anderson and his review of Sidekicked – click HERE!
Now back to Erik (P.S. I read this book in 5 minutes! SR) –
Thank you Super Reader! Mr. Laj, I will be emailing you for your mailing address so you can get your copy of Sidekicked! Now on to today’s review!
The Fallen Pharaoh
By SW Lothian

Published by CreateSpace on July 8, 2013
JJ, Linc, and Rani are back (in time) in an all new adventure! The trio of time-travelers from the 21st century are back in Ancient Egypt in the 3rd book in the Quest Series! When the Pharaoh, Khufu, dies, the kids’ friend, Khafre, Khufu’s eldest son, must become the new Pharaoh. Pharaoh Khafre starts worrying about his safety, because he thinks that the Ankh of Life, which guards the Pharaohs, is missing. He calls upon the trio to find it for him. Khafre dies soon after. Now JJ, Linc, and Rani must find the Ankh so that it can protect Khafre’s brother (the next Pharaoh in line). Will they find it in time?
Mr. Lothian’s Quest Series keeps getting better! I am finding that this is one of those series that I wait for the next book to come out (see my review of Quest One: The Golden Scarab HERE and Quest Two: The Cursed Nile HERE)! I think Mr. Lothian’s description of the action in this book was well done and really got me into the story. The story plot was super exciting. I love the setting of the series too. I learned some new things about Ancient Egypt, like that Khufu is (or was) in the Great Pyramid of Giza. I like the character Patra a lot (Patra is one of Rani’s friends (who can travel through time)). She’s very knowledgeable . I think if she was real, I would be friends with her. I can’t wait for book 4! If you missed my interview with JJ, the main character of the Quest Series, check it out HERE!
