"This story is unique, action-packed and exciting ... I was totally hooked ..." - THIS KID REVIEWS BOOKS

A simple day at the museum turns into to an edge-of-your-seat roller-coaster ride into the past. A museum Mummy in deep distress recruits JJ Sterling, and his best buddy, Linc, to head back in time to Ancient Egypt. Along with new pal, Rani, it's up to the three of them to locate the mysterious Golden Scarab and save history.

A long-time feud between two ancient brothers, Seth and Horus, looks set to end the fragile peace in Egypt. It's time for our young heroes to rise up and conquer evil. Their perilous quest leads them on a race through scorching deserts, and temples full of amazing hidden chambers that are bursting with unexpected traps. All the while, an army of living statues called Uberdiles are determined to stop them.

If the three kids fail, the impact on the future would be a disaster for everyone ... including you.
Once you've caught your breath, you'll be busting to get your teeth into The Cursed Nile (Quest 2), The Fallen Pharaoh (Quest 3), and The Missing Link (Quest 4 - due in early 2015).

About S.W. Lothian

See more books from this Author
S.W. Lothian is a funny and cool guy from Australia. His kids call him 'Phil Dunphy', because he reminds them of the dad from Modern Family. He isn't sure whether this is a compliment or not, but he takes it as a compliment. As an imaginative kid he dreamed of creating exciting worlds and funky characters, and thought he'd be the most famous person to ever do this. He loved to draw and was dux of Art in High School. Top of his dream list was to be an animator. He loved watching all those classic cartoons on TV - Scooby Doo, The Flintstones, The Jetsons, Road Runner, Wacky Races, The Simpsons, the list goes on and on. BOOM! Reality hit. The dreams were parked as the corporate world beckoned. Then, 25 years later, the long-held dream to create erupted like a jam donut in a microwave and S.W. started writing fiction for kids of all ages. His books can be summed up as fun-action-packed-time-travel-adventures-for-the-kid-in-everyone. He writes stories to excite, inspire, teach and thrill. Stories with awesome edge-of-your-seat fun. Stories that let kids escape to new places, and adults remember the dreams of their own childhood. He is the author of the very popular Quest Series (The Golden Scarab, The Cursed Nile, The Fallen Pharaoh), and the first book in his new series, TIME SQUARE - THE SHIFT was let loose on readers in April 2014.
