(Affiliate link)


Buried beneath the Egyptian sands lies a relic from a society whose knowledge has been lost to Earth for over 5,000 years. It lies in wait for the boy who will use it to save a distant world. On that world, a slave girl who is more than she appears waits for a destiny she cannot imagine. But when an ancient foes rises from the ashes, they will be brought together by forces that neither understands. Follow Leoros, a 13 year-old boy who dreams of being like the heroes in the comic books he reads, as he fights to unlock the secrets of the universe. Go with Atlantia, a 14 year-old girl whose mysterious powers grow stronger as she discovers her destiny. When the darkness comes, do you stand and fight or do you run and hide? An enemy with the power of dark magic - A mentor assassinated - Betrayal by an ally - A fight for the future - A final sacrifice. Will you join them? Or will you join the darkness? DO YOU DARE?

Author Bio:
Joshua Silverman was born in Washington, DC. His family moved to Orange County, California when he was four years old and he was raised there. He grew up watching Star Trek, Star Wars, and other science fiction series with his family when he was young. Star Trek; The Next Generation was a ritual in his house. In his spare time, he collected a respectable collection of comic books and Magic: The Gathering cards. When he's not writing (or working in his day job to be able to write at night), he spends his time thinking about how to avoid traffic, what he's going to have for dinner, watching cheesy apocalyptic or King Fu movies, working out or reading.



Review:
I was asked to review this book, but when I read about it, knew it would be more suited to the hubbys' tastes than my own. I asked him if he'd like to read it, for a review, of course, and he happily agreed.
After he finished the book, I asked him how it was, to write the review, and this is what he had to say:

I loved how the author mixed Greek and Egyptian mythology and history. It meshed well with his mixing of past, present and future times. It was quite a cohesive story.
I was disappointed in some of the characters, they were a little predictable for me, but overall, the author took me on a rollercoaster ride of ups and downs that carried the story. 
I thought the cover was appropriate for the book. Appearance-wise it is eye-catching and looked to be a dark and mysterious read. It made me want to pick it up and look at it, and learn more about the story and plot.
After finishing, I would definitely read more from this author.

So there ya have it. The hubby approves!


4/5

Our heroes pull out all the stops to try and win the tournament, break the witch's hold on King Arthur, and find a way back to the present in this legendary story of Scooby Doo in King Arthur's Court. REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
