Details: Product Description "Pleasantly reminiscent of Rick Riordan’s work.”--Publishers Weekly Meet Tut! He used to rule Egypt. Now he's stuck in middle school. Having defeated his evil uncle and the Cult of Set, who tried to send him to the afterlife, the perpetually fourteen-year-old King Tut is looking forward to a relaxing summer vacation. But then Tut discovers that his brother Gilgamesh has been captured by the Egyptian god Apep, Lord of Chaos. Gil helped to vanquish Apep thousands of years ago, and now Apep is back for vengeance. It’s up to Tut and his friends, Tia and Henry, to find Gil and stop Apep before he succeeds in his scheme to swallow the sun and plunge the world into darkness forever…. Tut: My Epic Battle to Save the World will appeal to fans of fast and funny mythological fantasy. Don’t miss Tut’s first epic adventure, Tut: The Story of My Immortal Life. From School Library Journal Gr 4–8—In this sequel to Tut: The Story of My Immortal Life, Tut is out to find his missing brother, Gilgamesh. In order to do so, he enlists the help of his mortal friend Henry, who insists they attend science camp first. That turns out to be a total bore for Tut, but readers once again come in contact with Tia and are introduced to Blair, a new character who catches Henry's eye. Blair is an odd girl, which makes Tut suspect that she may be immortal and probably knows where Gilgamesh is. Throw in a few gods like Thoth, Hapi, Ra, and Isis, and the plot really thickens. The sequel does not disappoint, offering suspense and excitement as Tut gets closer to freeing his brother from Apep, who he believes is behind the disappearance. The shabtis return to provide comic relief and prove to be just as loyal as ever to their Boy King. Readers are left with yet another hint of an upcoming volume in the series.
