Schools out, summer is in, and Addison and his group of friends are off to Asia!

Trouble seems to follow Addison no matter where he goes, fresh of a treasure hunt and rescue mission in South America – Addison finds himself in a whole new set of trouble out in China.

When Addison and Molly’s Aunt and Uncle get kidnapped in China by the mysterious Madame Feng, they must use their knowledge as survival skills in order to beat Madame Feng to what she really wants – the Golden Whip from the lost grave

Addison is chafing to be off on another adventure now that school is over (and he's managed to avoid detention), and is glad that Aunt Delia and Uncle Nigel are willing to let him take Eddie and Raj to the Gobi desert when the museum sends them off China. They meet with Eustace Hawtrey in Hong Kong, but before Addison can soil his new white dinner jacket, his aunt and uncle are kidnapped by Madame Feng and her band of Triad gang members. It turns out that a shield Hawtry

Man, what can I say ? I totally love this series. Though i think 'tomb of khan's ' storyline is little better than 'inca tresure', the previous addison cook series. Yeah this book will totally make you crazy for addison cook's upcoming novel ( Though i didn't hear anything about next book in the series).

As you guys know, story line is about adventure of Addison cooke and his friends in extemporoneous search for tomb of Genghis Khan, famous notorious Mongolian leader. Addison cooke is only 13 yea

I don't remember when I read this. Took me a while to get through it, though. Whenever I put it down, I didn't really feel like picking it up again.


There was another attempt at character development. At least this time it was started at the beginning of the book. But it was totally forgotten about for most of the middle, then picked up again at the end, as if the author was like 'oh wait, need this! haha'. Me at him: haha NO.

Addison really seems to l

This is the second in the Addison Cooke series and it was a good read. My 12 year old grandson and I have been reading this for our summer reading program. It is full of action and clue solving. Very appropriate for a tween boy or girl. Looking for the third in the series.

Review for “Addison Cooke and the Tomb of the Khan” by Jonathan W. Stokes:

It’s the second book from the “Addison Cooke” series written by Jonathan W. Stokes. The story focuses on another adventure of the Cooke children and their friends.
The author attracts his readers through his simple style that can be easily understood. The world that he created resembles a mix of Indiana Jones and The Goonies taking the readers on a ride across Asia this time.
We all have a little bit of each character in us

Another Cooke book down.

Yet another book that, had I read it for myself, would have elicited a lower score. Maybe even lower than I had wanted for the first in the series. The author has picked up some affectations that quickly get weary. There are now extremely frequent flourishes of floundering fiction, where weak wisps of weary words in consonance bounce off sentence after sentence. Alliteration aspires to act awesomely, only awkwardly achieving the asinine. Rhyme tries to repeat the beat in

Addison Cooke convinces his Aunt and Uncle to take him, Molly, Raj and Eddie with them to Hing Kong. Aunt and Uncle promptly get kidnapped again. This time by the Triad led by Madame Feng.
The Russians get involved too, and the race is on to find Genghis Khan's tomb.
I swear these kids must be the engergizer bunny come to life. The story is nonstop action and destruction. They crash a plane, blow up an airport, set fire to a museum, blow up a palace and reset the course of a river.

Addison Cooke is back with the same wit and charm from the first book! This thrilling sequel gives a spellbinding tale of mystery, Russian mafia out for revenge, dangerous but friendly Chinese triads, and of course the witty, life-saving charm of Addison Cooke. Despite the whole save-a-precious-tomb-from-ruthless-criminals element, I think it's Addison's natural wit that kept me laughing form literally the title of the first chapter to the very end. This adventurous and humorous novel, written f ...more

Incredible! Addison, Molly, Raj, and Eddie are off again on an adventure across China. Of course the A & U get themselves kidnapped quite quickly in the book and the kids are left to their own devices. This time, they are off to find the tomb and massive treasure of Ghengis Khan. Chock full of adventure, action, humor, and suspense. Can the 4 kids scramble their way out of the Thousand Buddha Caves? Throw in a horse race across Ulaanbaatar and several explosions, you’re in for a wild plane ride! ...more

(Please note, I liked this series enough to read the second book, which is not true of some of the other books my 8 yo has read) Liked it a lot right up until the ending. Then at the ending his parental figures die in front of him, and he swears revenge. A little too grown up for my taste for kids. Really? Swearing revenge?
A great adventure, with a precocious young man and his gang, through the Gobi desert and into the mouth (and beyond) of the Khan's tomb! What more could you want from a middle-grade story? Adventure, comedic banter, and dozens of perilous situations. It did not disappoint! Just as good as the first Cooke adventure. And if they decide to tackle another relic, we'll be sure to tag along!

This is the second book in the Addison Cooke Series. They are very similar, but instead of taking place in the Americas, it takes place in Eastern Asia. In this sequel, Addison and his crew encounter many other challenges, to find a different type of treasure.

This is an exciting, fast paced archeological adventure many young teens will enjoy. It's in the vein of Indiana Jones, with some historical attributes, but much wild and somewhat unbelievable adventure. The story is enjoyable and Addison is an engaging, smart main character.

Read aloud for my boys. I don’t think I’ve ever had to stop reading so that they could catch their breath from laughter more for any of the book. And! The alliteration! Looking forward to seeing how the series wraps up.

You can tell that the author loved The Goonies as he admits in his bio.

Still, an enjoyable read. The silly wordplay is my favorite part of these pleasant, generally unsurprising children’s books.
