Nothing can save Alex Sennefer's life. That's what all the doctors say, but his mother knows it's not true. She knows that the Lost Spells of the Egyptian Book of the Dead can crack open a door to the afterlife and pull her son back from the brink. But when she uses the spells, five evil ancients--the Death Walkers--are also brought back to life.

An ancient evil has been unleashed. Mummies are awakening. New York is overrun with scorpions. And worst of all for Alex, his mom and the Lost Spells have both disappeared. He and his best friend, Ren, will do anything to find his mom and save the world . . . even if that means going head-to-head with a Death Walker who has been plotting his revenge for 3,000 years.

Read the New York Times bestselling book, then continue the adventure online! Build an Egyptian tomb of your own, hide treasure and protect it with traps, then challenge your friends to play through!

From School Library Journal:

Gr 4–6—In this opening book of this new multiplatform series, sickly Alex Sennefer knows much about Ancient Egypt because his mom is an expert who works for New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art. She and her colleagues have discovered the Lost Spells from the Egyptian Book of the Dead, which are coveted by a dark society of evil, undead Egyptian souls. When Alex's mother uses one of the spells to save his life, she unknowingly sets in motion a global reaction that finds blood raining down in London, undead things rising all over the world, and a scorpion epidemic in New York City. When she and the Spells disappear, Alex, his best friend Ren, and a mysterious scientist must try to find them while working against black magic and ancient evil. The plot moves quickly and will appeal to reluctant readers looking for adventure, danger, and minimal character development. There is also an online game component.—B. Allison Gray, Goleta Public Library, CA
