An adventure, mix of non and fiction novel. Rated nearly 4 stars!

If you loved Percy Jackson or the Kane Chronicles, you have to give Jake Ransom a try! James Rollins is a popular adult author who has brought his talent to the junior fiction, but lost none of the action or adventure along the way. Part mystery, part adventure and loaded with history and some fantasy, it's a non-stop thrill ride.

Think kid Indiana Jones meets Percy Jackson. Look out for the rest of the series as well, and grown-ups - it's ok if you want to read them too!
