Adam and Justin could hardly wait, a trip to Egypt with their aunt was a dream come true, little did they know the danger that awaited. A missing archaeologist, a strange feeling of being followed, and a secret entrusted to them, all marks the start of a gripping adventure that will take them to places beyond their greatest dreams in an attempt to unravel the mysteries before their own lives become forfeit.
When I first picked up Fiona Ingram’s The Secret of the Sacred Scarab I did not begin to imagine the fantastical adventure I would be whisked away on. I loved the rich and vibrant characters and their portrayal, especially their close familial relationship. I found myself grinning, cringing, and releasing bated breaths as I was drawn into a tale that could be straight from The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles. Majestic descriptions make imagining the land easy. If you have never been to Egypt you’ll get an amazing feel for the sights and atmosphere, and if you have, like myself, you’ll find a vividness in the writing that will stir memories from your own experiences there. There’s action, danger, secrets, and a mystery just begging to be solved. Without a doubt a griping and amazing read whether you’re old or young. The Secret of the Sacred Scarab gets my heartfelt recommendation. I can’t wait until my son is a few years older and we can read this gripping tale together.
