Scholastic, 2015. Fiction. 190 p.
This is the second in the successful TombQuest series. After his encounter with the Egyptian un-dead in book #1, Alex is on his way to London to meet with Dr Aditi at the British Museum and hopefully find Alex's mother. London has been terrorized by another Death Walker, and Alex senses that the only way to find his mother is to send this Death Walker back to the beyond. To do that he must discover who the Death Walker was in life, and which of the spells in the Book of the Dead will be able to defeat it. With the help of his best friend, Ren, and his athletic cousin Luke, Alex faces his most thrilling, and dangerous, adventure yet. This is a good choice for those who like Rick Riordan's books, especially The Kane Chronicles. There is no better time to read the book because Mr. Northrop will be visiting the Provo Library on October 5, 2015 to talk about the TombQuest series. This book is available from the Provo Library in print, as an audio book on CD, and as an ebook download.
