The few problems about this book are that at some points, the story is too fast, such as defeating Apep. It would be expected that since Apep is so powerful, Tut would take time to defeat him.
Other than this , the book is marvellous and is recommended for ages 8 to 12-13
I am eagerly waiting for the sequel.
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.

This is what happens when fanfic authors get published... Except they keep writing fanfic and call it original.
And I say this as a fanfic writer myself!
It's such a blatant rip off of the works of Rick Riordan, it hurts...
