Tombquest: Book of the Dead (YA)


Book #115 Read in 2014
Tombquest: Book of the Dead (YA)

This is the first book in a new YA series.  Besides the book, there is a companion game that I can see kids getting into.  In the book, Alex is a sickly youngster.  When he takes a turn for the worse, his mother, who is a Keeper, uses the book of the dead to bring Alex back to life.  But this also brings other things back to life that probably should have remained dead.  Alex's mother is kidnapped so Alex, along with Ren (his best friend) try to find his mother and figure out a way to stop more dead things from coming back to life. 

This was a good, quick read.  Reluctant readers would enjoy this fast-paced book.  Alex and Ren are intelligent and brave characters who are interesting to read about; this book also has elements of history and paranormal to it.  I will read more of this series.  I received an ARC of this book from the Amazon Vine program in exchange for a honest review.
