Summary The Secret of the Sacred Scarab ´ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF Cousins Justin and Adam are ecstatic about accompanying their aunt to Egypt Both love adventure and know the work of James Kinnaird an archaeologist searching for the tomb of an ancient Egyptian ruler the Scarab King Some dismiss the tomb as legend but Justin and Adam believe differently From the moment their plane lands Justin and Adam bounce from one mysterious event to another startin I am giving this book 2 stars for all the Egyptian history that you learn in this book though you can learn just as much watching The Mummy movies or reading a far superior book series by Rick Riordan called The Kane Chronicles and that is all This book took me forever to finish and I love history especially ancient Egyptian history At no time did I ever believe that 2 young boys would have been allowed to run around Egypt the way Adam and Justin do in this book and I grew up with a lot of freedom and a lot of traveling I also did not like how the author wrote this as middle schoolers are essentially morons who need a lot of extra padding in a book to get them through it There was a ton of stuff in this book that was just not needed A good 50 pages or so of extra meh stuff It dragged the story down and made it almost impossible to read The writing was just bad almost condescending to the audience it is trying to reach And then endwell I am not a fan of pat endings nor am I am fan of encouraging lying in order to get what one wants or to go on adventures I would not recommend this book to anyone Especially to any of the middle school aged kids that I know They would laugh in my face at this ridiculous read
