During the school year Sam goes to a boarding school in the United States, but every summer Sam goes to Egypt to spend the time with his uncle. His uncle wants to teach Sam all about Egypt but Sam is not interested in learning. In fact, Sam does not even want to come to Egypt in the first place. This particular summer Sam meets a girl named Mary on the plane. Usually he tries to avoid conversation but this time Sam’s new found friend starts the conversation, and she does seem to know a lot about Egypt. When the plane lands, Sam’s uncle is not at the airport to pick Sam up. Instead, there are police officers looking for Sam to tell him that his uncle has run away and may be responsible for stealing from his own work. Sam looks to Mary for help because he thinks his uncle is innocent and has left him clues that only Mary can understand. But Sam is starting to second guess giving Mary all of this information…what if she calls the police? Find out in Pyramid Hunters: The Iron Tomb.
I liked this book it wasn't too scary and it had a lot of good ideas, but it was very difficult for me to read because it was very slow in the beginning. I like books that have a nice hooking beginning, then the action starts right away. In this book I liked the intro a lot but then it started to slow down for me. I will say at some parts in the story the detail made the book a lot better, although once you came rear the middle of the story things started to spike up and I could not put the book down. I loved how the author tied some nonfiction facts about Egypt into this story and took it to the next level.
I would recommend this story to readers that like a lot of action and growing suspense level. I give this book a 4 out of five-star rating because overall I liked this book and the idea behind it. but there is a little too much waiting for me.
