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. VERDICT A sequel that doesn't disappoint; purchase where there are fans of the first book, or buy the series for readers looking for history and adventure.—Martha Rico, El Paso ISD, TX
“A panoply of gods, goddesses, and mythical creatures is fodder for spawning interest in ancient cultures, myths, and legends.” ―Kirkus Reviews

While this may be marketed as a middle-grade book I think it’s a great example of why you shouldn’t let a book’s target audience dissuade you from reading it. P.J. Hoover is a fantastic author and I think she did a great job bring the story and it’s characters to live. The fact that this is a middle-grade book obviously didn’t stop Hoover from doing her homework when it came to research. I thought the story was full of interesting tidbits about Egyptian history and mythology.
While I liked almost everything about this book I would have to say the thing that impressed me most were the characters. I found it surprisingly easy to connect and empathize with Tutankhamun considering the fact that he’s an ancient Egyptian pharaoh stuck in the body of a 14-year-old boy. Reading about him trying to navigate the pitfalls of middle school while hiding who and what he is has been one of the highlights of my week. My only complaint would be that I found the conversations and romance aspect of the book a bit cringe worthy at times, though that may be fitting for a book aimed at a younger audience.
I would gladly recommend this book to kids and adults alike, I think there is something in it for everyone. Tut: My Epic Battle to Save the World is well written with an interesting plot and full of characters it’s easy to fall in love with. I’ve already purchased the first book in the series and I’m eagerly awaiting the sequel to this one because I am dying to see what happens next with Tut and his friends.
I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
I loved how the Author put in some Egyptian History as well. I always loved learning about Egyptian History and reading about it was pretty awesome. Author did a great job with that.
The characters were very well developed. I loved going on the journey with 14 year old Tutankhamun. A great adventure indeed.
If you want a fast paced filled adventure with some twists this book is for.
I received a ARC of this book to give a honest review.
