4.0 out of 5 stars A Hidden Treasure by a young J.R. Rain!!!! July 31, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
This is J.R. Rain when he was seventeen. I want to say that I was taken by surprise by this book,but nothing takes me by surprise when it comes to J.R. Rain!!!
While it may not be as polished or as perfect as his books are now, it was a fantastic, well thought out adventure with plenty of twists and turns to keep a reader captivated as we read about a man and his nephew who set out to solve a baffling riddle and a recently discovered passageway underneath the Sphinx!
At seventeen, J.R Rain already had the makings of the great writer he has become! This book was geared towards young adult, but I think it will appeal to those of any age who have a sense of adventure and love a mystery!
I really liked it! and am glad I read it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent effort by a young author January 25, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
For those who don't know, J. K. Drew is a pen name once used by now bestselling author J. R. Rain. Written when he was seventeen years old, in Secret of the Sphinx, we can see his maturing literary voice. While not perfect, the short book nevertheless is a well thought out adventure story with some interesting twists and a satisfying ending. It also makes a nice compliment to the more recent Pyramid of the Gods by J. R. Rain and Aiden James.

4.0 out of 5 stars Two stories in One October 4, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This story caught me by surprise. I was drawn into the fun adventure of two family members going to explore the riddles inside an ancient Sphinx in Egypt. I especially liked the sense of wonderment that the author gave his characters, adding to the unfolding adventure. Then, another short story within the book concluded the adventure, ending in a most satisfying manner. I really liked the story of these intelligent characters, each of which I was able to imagine completely in my mind, and enjoyed their company for the entire story. What a fun read.
