Memphis “M” Engle is stubborn to a fault, graced with an almost absurd knowledge of long lost languages and cultures, and a heck of an opponent in a fight. In short: she’s awesome.
Ashwin Sood is a little too posh for her tastes, a member of an ancient cult (which she’s pretty sure counts for more than one strike against him), and has just informed Memphis that her father who she thought was dead isn’t and needs her help.
From the catacombs of Paris to lost temples in the sacred forests, together they crisscross the globe, searching for the pieces of the one thing that might save her father. But the closer they come to saving him—and the more they fall for one another—the closer they get to destroying the world. (From Goodreads)
Thank you Wednesday Books for gifting me an E-ARC and for inviting me onto the blog tour. All opinions are my own.
I rate this book a 3 out of 5 Stars.
To be fair, this is not my typical read. I am not a huge fan of Action/Adventure books, unless of course it’s books that I am reading to my little boys. However, this was a fun book to read, and I found the storyline to be fairly impressive. I’ve never read any other book by this co-writing duo, so this one I think was a good introduction. I feel like fans of the Tomb Raider series, and those type of books and movies would really enjoy this one. Also the cover is so eye-catching, and stunning, you cannot help but be drawn to it.
I thought this was a pretty creative, and clever book, something new and fresh on the market for YA readers. I loved the fact that both main characters were mixed race, and they had substance to them, I’ve never read a book where the main character was into archaeology, and this book also appealed to the mythology lovers. I kind of got Indiana Jones vibes, which was cool and played to my years as a kid when those movies were super popular! Overall, I was impressed with this book, and I think if you are look for a fun adventure read, you should pick this one up. I also think it’s a good read for any age.
