I really enjoyed this. A mix of Lightening Thief and Dan Brown for Middle grade readers the book had fun Egyptian mythology and fast paced adventure. Tut as you can guess is King Tutankhamen who is immortal but that means remaining 14 for the several thousand years. He hasn't learned much during that time and is still irritatingly foolish and obsessed with revenge. Luckily he learns a few things along the way with the help of a few mortal friends.

I wasn't happy with the ending. It is clear ther...more
