In the book The Hounds of Set, the main character is a 13 year-old teenager named Alex. Alex lives with his grandmother in a small, quiet town on the beach. For Alex, life in this dull, sleepy town is boring and he dreams of adventure. That is, until he receives the gift. The gift that shatters his very perspective of existence and sends him on an adventure he never even dreamed of, full of danger and mystery and sends him scrambling for answers. Can Alex solve the greatest puzzle of all?

Opinion: 

Overall I thought that this was an excellent book.The book is full of action and is quite intriquing. The plot is very well done. I like how the author throws in just the right amount of twists and turns in the plot to make it interesting, but not so many that it has no cohesive storyline. The book is rather grabbing and hard to put down. I did find that there were some parts that were slightly too fast paced, but overall I really liked the book.  I would recommend this book to people who like historical fiction especially about Ancient Egypt.  I would also recommend it to people who like action stories.
