Book Description

"Highly recommended for all readers, young and old, endlessly in love with the magical realm of fantasy fiction and the battle of good and evil." - Midwest Book Review

"All of the things that make horror books great are in this book" - Teens Read Too

Magic shouldn’t be toyed with lightly and curses should never be uttered aloud. Marty’s grandfather should have known better than to chase down the tomb of a ruler who was rumored to be a demon. Yet his obsession turned his passion into madness and Reginald ended up bringing the curse home to his loved ones. As a result, Marty’s mother disappears while working on an artifact from the tomb and soon after Reginald himself falls sick with a mysterious illness.

With each new stroke of bad luck Marty begins to wonder if the whispered rumors about his family are true, maybe they are cursed. As Marty tries to unravel the mystery of his grandfather’s work the tomb's dark magic begins to weave its spell threatening to destroy everything. And that's only the beginning of Marty's nightmare as he struggles with newfound clairvoyant abilities while trying to stop his friends from being the curse's next victims.

Marty Boggs is a new exciting paranormal mystery series that will take you into the world of superstition, introducing you to the creatures that lurk between our world and beyond.

Marty Boggs And The Curse Of Kutkara's Tomb by M. T. Acquaire (the collaborative pen name of Matthew Acquire and his wife Tanya), is a creative fantasy story depicting the life of the twelve-year-old Marty Boggs and his very troubled life. Tactfully carrying its readers through the mysterious disappearance of Marty's mother, the terrors of the bully at his new school, his comatose grandfather archeologist and the peculiar and seemingly valid questioning of weather the housekeeper is really human, Marty Boggs And The Curse Of Kutkara's Tomb is a humorous, evocative, and engaging story of the incredible mystery of the young Boggs' magical life. Marty Boggs And The Curse Of Kutkara's Tomb is to be given high praise and is very highly recommended for its outstanding style and unique story for all readers, young and old, endlessly in love with the magical realm of fantasy fiction and the battle of good and evil.

5.0 out of 5 stars Courtesy of Teens Read Too June 15, 2006
I love a good horror story, and when you mix the horror in with a bunch of supernatural beings and happenings, it's a pretty good bet that I'm going to like it. The great thing about MARTY BOGGS & THE CURSE OF KUTKARA'S TOMB is that, not only is it a great horror slash supernatural slash gory story, but it's well written, with diverse characters that come to life on the page. M.T. Acquaire, comprised of husband and wife author team Matthew and Tanya, knew what they were doing when they wrote this book. They took our hero, twelve-year old Marty Boggs, put him smack dab in the middle of true-to-life circumstances, and gave him a host of problems to deal with--and the end result is a real winner.

Marty's grandfather, Reginald, is a man who has been obsessed for years with finding the tomb of King Kutkara. Although he's never fully realized that there's something fueling his obsession--something from beyond the grave, something truly evil--it's finally driven him insane. A very sick man, Marty's family moves in with the ailing Reginald; as a result, some very strange things start happening. Because, you see, when Reginald finally did find Kutkara's final resting place, a curse was let loose, not only upon Reginald, but upon his entire family.

What comes as a result of this curse are strange happenings, indeed. Not only is Marty starting a new school, with the typical bully attempting to make his life miserable, but even his grandfather's nurse, Margerete, is something that could be from beyond the grave herself. Being mean and nasty is one thing, and even the overt threats she makes in Marty's presence is another, but the woman actually seems to have things--living, breathing things--growing inside her body.

3.0 out of 5 stars Compelling, but... June 23, 2012
By Yzabel
This book deals with the story of Marty Boggs, who finds himself dragged to another town and another life after his mother disappeared and his grandfather suddenly fell comatose. While trying to settle down in his new life--not such an easy feat for a newcomer in a school where everybody already knows each other, and where a new face immediately attracts the unwanted attention of the school bully--Marty soon discovers that odd events are taking place, and that they may be linked to the last archeological discovery his grandfather made before falling sick: the mummy of the long-lost king Kutkara.

I found "The Curse of the Mummy's Tomb" compelling and enthralling, the mystery deepening and thickening with each chapter; some characters definitely gave off strange vibes almost from the beginning, but it was hard to tell why exactly, and so the plot unfolded itself without being given away too soon, with a definite feeling of horror slowly building up. Marty's nightmares, while of the graphic type, remain dreams, and so they clash all the more with the apparently normal, tranquil side of the average New England town where the story takes place. We are aware that something terrible is going to take place, but we definitely don't know when nor where exactly.

The main characters seemed well-rounded to me. Margo and her no-nonsense attitude. Simon who always made me smile with his eats-everything-in-sight attitude. Marty who tries to do his best to face whatever is about to befall him, in spite of being burdened with his own suffering. Dani's courage. Margarete's true face. Although I wouldn't say I connected well with all of them, I usually liked them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome Read! March 24, 2006
By chriszm
I stumbled onto this book and I am so happy I did. Really good mystery mixed in with horror and suspense. What I liked most was Marty's special powers and being able to see visions of the past just from touching an object. Definitely recommend this book, particularly for fans of fantasy and horror.

3.0 out of 5 stars 2.5 stars March 24, 2006
Moving into his ill grandfather's home brings a world of changes to Marty Boggs' young life. Starting a new school is in and of itself an experience, but that's the only normal part of it. His grandfather's nurse, Margarete, is to understate things, quite strange to the point of being creepy. Not only does she apparently have worms living in her arm, but she has overtly and tacitly threatened Marty and all he loves. Then, there's the visions Marty keeps having and a rash of kidnappings has terrified the town. All of it seems to be tied to an ancient mummy and a madman's quest for immortality. Because of his family ties, Marty is the only person in the world who can stop the nightmare.

At times, be warned, this can get a little bit gross, if you are good at visualizing what happens in a book. Fans of the Young Indiana Jones or the Mummy series will stand a good chance of liking this, especially the latter.
