This was fast paced and action packed and it was wickedly good. Unlike Alex Rider it's not overly sad and unlike Cherub - I like the main characters. As a reader, I relate to Amy but I love Dan's way of looking at things. They're a great team. Nellie, the au pair, is hilarious. She's laid back and loyal and can speak a seemingly million different languages. The rest of the Cahill family kind of suck, but what's an adventure story without a villain? Or ten? The plot is riveting - the mix of fiction and history is fascinating and I'm flying through the series. They're not particularly long - but then this kind of book never is - or at least never feels like it is. I can't wait to read the rest. 4.5 stars rounded up to 5.


Irina's backstory is teased at but unlike when I felt momentary feeling for Ian, I still don't like her. I hate that Dan and Amy fight in this one - I wish they'd just have it out instead of being all passive aggressive. As much as I enjoyed the book though, I would've liked to see more of Egypt - tomb raiding and archaeology details/facts/anecdotes, etc. I felt that it was kind of bland on that aspect of the quest - there was lots of danger and action but not as much substance as the previous three books.

Hm, this one lacked a climax, too. :( ( )

A fun way to teach history, and really get kids and young adults into learning. Even as an older teen, and adult, I still learned from these books, and enjoyed the ride along the way. ( )

Beyond the Grave is definitely one of the better books in the series so far. Irina's character arc has me hooked for sure, and I find myself more and more drawn into Alistair's backstory. A little suspension of disbelief is required with this book, like most adventure novels, and the alternate spelling of Sekhmet threw me off a bit, but otherwise this was a strong installment in the series.

The set-up for the Madrigals was excellent as well and I can't wait to see where it goes from here. ( )

Children's fiction/adventure-mystery. The chase continues in this satisfying seque (though the formula is getting somewhat tired). Click here to watch Jude Watson read an excerpt from the book. ( )
