Nick, Marie and Ishi are at it again. This time they are in Egypt to complete a dig that Nick first started with his best friend Mario before Maries Uncle had murdered him. Nick hopes that not only will he find the gold that is supposed to surpass anything they have found so far but that he will also be able to put his demons to rest concerning Mario and move on with his life without nightmares. This time they are joined by someone Marie knows through her father. Akiiki.
Not long after they get there Nick feels that the spot they originally tried to dig at was not the right spot so he wanted to look elsewhere. When they finally camp out at the spot that Nick feels is right Akiiki gives them the warning that the pyramid they are looking for may belong to Sekmet and that if it is then what they had went through before was nothing. That night after Nick goes to sleep he has a very realistic dream about his father. More of a premonition of things to come.
Right after they find a door and gold they are attacked and taken prisoner by bandits once again. This ones leaders name is Motumbo. He is probably the most ruthless out of all the ones they have dealt with so far. He is very angry because all the gold Nick says they found is all of a sudden gone. There is an assumed casualty on Nicks end but all is not as it seems... Nick of course is his attitude laden self. Once again it will take some quick thinking on Nicks part along with some unexpected help to get them out of the dire situation that they find themselves in.
This really was the best one yet. There was more of danger aspect to it. More ruthless villains. The first two books had more realistic situations in it. This one had a bit more of a supernatural aspect something you would have to have an open mind for if you are not into the supernatural. But as I am a huge fan of all things in that genre I absolutely loved it. By far my favorite so far. I can't wait till the next one. I highly recommend this whole series and especially this book!!
