In The Akenahten Adventure, two 12 year old kids, John and Philipia, find out their djinn and have magical powers. They can grant wishes, travel to other places in a snap, and make people and objects disappear. They set off on a journey to learn to use their powers with there djinn Uncle Nimrod. Little do they know they're about to embark on a search to discover a (supposedly dead) pharaoh, Akenhaten. He is the most feared human to djinn and his tomb supposedly has seventy lost djinn. Can the twins use their newly found powers to outwit Ilblis, the most evil djinn in the world and find the lost djinn before he does? Find out in The Akenhaten Adventure.
I absolutely LOVED this book! It was fun to read and packed with adventure! You never know what will happen next so you're always on the edge of your seat. For example, when Uncle Nimrod goes missing you are just dieing to find out what happened. Around every corner there's surprises and big events making it IMPOSSIBLE to put down! My favorite part is when the kids finally meet Ilblis. This book is a great fantasy book!
I recommend this book to any fantasy lover in 4th through 6th grade.
