I received this book from the author, free of charge, with the expectation of a honest review.

Having just finished this book I am a bit bewildered as to how to rate this book.

Should I focus on

-the fact that all the characters are one-dimentional, with only a slight touch of normal human feelings and reactions. E.g. they keep on cracking jokes no matter how dire situation they are in.

-the author having borrowed elements from several other books and movies within the adventure genre.

-the plot bei

This book reminded me a bit two of my favorite movies. Indiana Jones and The Mummy. I loved the plot, the action and most importantly the Egyptian history with a little fiction.

The story continues smoothly, with no plot holes, and explains enough to the reader so as to understand the importance of the findings and the history behind them. The puzzles are extremely well built and well thought. This book, wisely, includes pictures that catch the reader’s attention and helps us built a clearer men

This book has basically been my December reading. I thoroughly enjoyed it, as it is a tour-de-force of pyramids, secret chambers and Egyptian mystery history combined with a good dose of fiction. Also a different explanation of how man came to be here. Be prepared to be surprised.

I love all the attention to detail with regards Tutankhamen's historic discovery and what happened to Queen Nefertiti. We saw the exhibition of Tutankhamen's discovery and riches when it was in South Africa on show a w

Last Secret Chamber is the sequel to Phil Philips’ Mona Lisa’s Secret. It follows the protagonist, Joey and his girlfriend, Marie as they travel to Egypt to discover the mysteries of the secret chamber. The mission however, isn’t as straightforward as they were initially led to believe. Joey and Marie once again find themselves battling against evil and greed to save their own lives and emerge victorious.

Once again, the research that has gone in to constructing this novel is phenomenal. Philips’

I got this book from the author via Booktasters for an honest review.

It was an educative read with alot of information.

The book opens with a man held hostage by his partner, the partner is greedy and impatient, he wants more and can't wait to convince Benjamin.

Benjamin, his girlfriend and Boyce are brought in to the scene. They travel to meet Youssef and the book unravels.... the Great Pyramid, treasures, artifacts, scrolls you name it.. the while nine yards of an Egyptian 'mummy' kinda thing

After reading Phil Philips' Mona Lisa Secret, I couldn't wait to read the sequel, Last Secret Chamber.  This later novel is so crammed-full with puzzles, ancient mysteries, and theories about the human origin that I wanted the author to slow down the pace so I could enjoy it more fully. In my opinion, the author provided the solutions too quickly leaving me dissatisfied. I also felt that characters were underdeveloped and not in keeping with the first book, especially Joey who comes across more ...more

eCopy of this book provided by Book Tasters and the author in exchange for an honest review.

Oh, I wanted to like this. I hoped that Joey would have grown up since the events of book one, would've treated Marie better. I mean he's not horrible towards her but there's a scene where he and Boyce poke fun at her appetite and it clearly bothers her and that's just not cool in my opinion! Also, I feel like this was just the same as book one, just a different antagonist and historical point of view. T

To be honest, I finished the book quicker than many other books I read before. I must say the author knows how to raise and keep up the excitement throughout a whole book. I didn't even know I had been holding a breathe until I finished. And I must, thank the author for the pictorial references as well as the maps. These were extremely helpful to understand things better. Worth reading if you want to have a thrilling journey to a different world ahead! (Sorry for the little spoiler..couldn't hel ...more

Reading books in the middle of a series generally cause problems to some readers. It did for me ,because I feel like I missed something. So I got a off my high horse and went back and read book one. It’s like reading Harry Potter book four . You know you have to go back. Moving along, I love this series,partly because of the and the graphics. These help me to enjoy the books more. The interaction between the lead characters is a nice touch. I could see Scott Brick narrating this book.

Youseff was now impatient after two years, he now wants the key in the safe. Benjamin and him had been friends for ages. If he hadn’t needed the money his rich friend had, he would have done it alone. Now he had the possession, and the look of greed and hate, wanting the limelight,and the end of a friend. For Joey it was his long lost uncle. Joey, Marie his girlfriend,and Boyce a friend go to Egypt, looking for answers. Then they are lured into a trap as you go thru the wonders of Egypt.

The last secret chamber, it's a fascinating and mind-blowing book that will give goosebumps while you read on, as much as it is fiction but you'll be able to relate to the current situation and make you wonder what really lies above in the universe. Great book and worthy of reading if you are intrigued about life and where it all began.

If you like Dan Brown's books,you'll like this one too. As you follow the adventure,you learn so much about the ancient Egyptian culture,and the pyramids. There are illustrations and photographs which help you picture the places and artifacts. A very nice thriller.

Entertaining

This was a fascinating story. Fast paced, just like the Mona Lisa book. Keeps you going. Joey, Marie, & Boyce head to Egypt to meet Joey’s uncle. It gets a little crazy after that. Indiana Jones kind of crazy. Looking forward to the next adventure

Last secret chamber by Philips. I was given a copy for an honest review. At first, I was checking to see if I had read this story before and/or had done a review. But no, it was the same characters from 'Mona Lisa's secret'. Joey, Marie and Boyce endure an inordinate amount of conflict. Held at gunpoint, they are forced to find this last chamber and Joey is shot in the leg which adds to his troubles. We learn a lot about Egyptian history and Philips regales the reader with out of this world imag ...more

Fast paced action/adventure story

The story is fast paced and interesting, my only issue with it was it seems like Boyce is too young and only partially trained for his job with a foreign intelligence service and Joey also seems rather unprepared for the adventure. When the three arrived at Stonehenge they should have been half dead, needing a hospital, not able to travel to Cairo but other than each character taking turns being terrified but able to joke and fool around, it was an enjoyable read

Archeological thriller meets SciFi

This story is well written, but kind of crosses the line to SciFi at the end. It is entertaining and the characters are well developed. The bad guys were truly villians with good triumphing in the end. There is room for a sequel, which surely would be all SCI-if.

This book is not one I would have picked to read.I Got it in a giveaway by Goodreads. I enjoyed the story line ana the story too juju st imagine there is another world out with alien beings. I would record this book to those who are into science fiction

books. The story line does make you think that maybe there is another whole new world hidden away just waiting to be discovered.

Phil Philips does it again! Shortly after their dangerous trip to Paris, Joey and Marie are on their way to Cairo, to investigate the murder of Joey’s long-lost uncle turned avid archaeologist. This time Boyce joins them from the start and what it was supposed to be just a short city trip with a side visit to the Pyramids turns into another crazy adventure. Marie’s intensive knowledge of ancient history proves invaluable in their held at gunpoint stroll inside the Sphynx and all of them act as b ...more
