What do you do when you accidentally destroy your history teacher’s prized collection of historical artifacts? If you’re teenaged delinquents, Aston and Grant, this is more than just a rhetorical question. They’ve made a huge mistake, one that might cost them everything. Adding to their misery, their history teacher’s name is Merlin. Yes, that Merlin, and the answer to their dilemma is deceptively simple according to the old wizard. You go back in time to replace the items you destroyed! Aston and Grant find themselves in ancient Egypt, where their first task is to find and retrieve “The Eye of Ra,” a golden amulet owned by none other than King Tut, the boy king of Egypt. Neither of them is all that versed in history, so they have to play it cool and learn as they go. It’s not just the amulet that’s causing them trouble, either. They soon become friends with Tut, and find that they want to help him out. Surrounded by enemies, needing to survive in a primitive world, Aston and Grant quickly learn one basic truth. History isn’t dead when you’re living it.
Well, this was a short and fun read.
I would recommend this book to the youngsters as it has no sexual content at all.
The story is about Aston and Grant who ends up in a boys’ school. Actually, they were sentenced by a judge as a result of their doing. They come from opposite poles of society and end up as roommates.
They don’t really have time to be roomies because, against all the promises, Aston swore to keep his head down, not even after 24 hours he and his roommates end up in ancient Egypt.
They become fast friends with Tuk the young pharaoh of Egypt. Well, let’s just say I don’t think its really easy to get near to a Pharaoh but I don’t think that going back in time is easy neither, so there you have it…
Aston is gay, a real bad boy who doesn’t think further then next second. This kind of behavior lands him where he is now. Grant is no different, maybe a bit more diplomatic but he is hotheaded too.
Back in Egypt, they must face politics and wars and those things are not really their forte.
The book, as I said I dedicated for young readers between 14 till 18.
