Maiya Williams brings us right into the center of the action, a sort of Indiana Jones paradise filled with mummy cases and man eating lions, one desperate chase after another. And yet she never neglects the emotional core of the story, one in which sisters and brothers are constantly at war with each other, a loving war in which resentment, pity, and the golden rule are constantly shifting their priorities, like barber poles set up in a desert sand dune. These kids have spunk, and if you hate spunk, you're out of luck here. The rest of us will have a blast

They are going back in time with Aunt Agatha on a special mission to Ancient Egypt. This was the first time I read Maya William's book and I was expecting to by bored out of my mind and not complain because my dad got this for me on his way back from work because Historicals are not my cup of tea. Or so I thought. The story started off with Xanthe Alexander who was sulking over losing a Contest to her brother and twin Xavier Alexander. I think those of us with siblings can understand the sibling rivalry here.

This sequel to the award-winning time-travel adventure, The Golden Hour, takes readers to Cleopatra's EgyptThis time fourteen-year-old Xanthe leads the adventure as the four time-traveling kids from The Golden Hour make a trip back to ancient Egypt to rescue the library at Alexandria from destruction by Caesar's troops. Xanthe is particularly excited to visit Egypt, where she hopes to get a glimpse of Cleopatra. But she gets more than the quick peek she bargained for when young Cleopatra mistakes her for the goddess Isis. The princess begs Xanthe to intervene in a royal feud between Cleopatra and her brother Ptolemy. Xanthe, who's feeling overshadowed by her own brother, Xavier, is tempted to help the princess, thus changing history and setting off a chain of events that traps Rowan and Nina in time limbo.
