    The Purple Scarab follows Edmund Peabody grandson of the great archaeologist Colonel Percival Peabody in a race for magical Egyptian artifacts before the Nazis can get their hands on them and use them to win the Second World WarThe novel starts out strong as our characters hunt for treasure only to be foiled by Colonel Peabody’s nemesis and competitor Strasser The pace slows down a bit during the middle of the story but it picks up again towards the conclusion with a race against the Nazis to save one of history’s most prominent men – Winston ChurchillAll of the characters were well written each of them with their own uirks and personalities Edmund Peabody isn’t a terribly complex protagonist but the story flows through his perspective well enough Supporting character’s Chander Peabody and Amelia Tripp also had their compelling moments and their adventure with Edmund made for a fun read Colonel Peabody and his relationship with antagonist Strasser helped to make the hunt for the artifacts personal I hope to learn about their troubled past in future novelsWith magical artifacts mummies ghosts and enemies around every corner The Purple Scarab is a good start to the League of the Sphinx series Anyone who enjoys treasure hunting and history spiced with magic would do well to try it out

    This was a wonderful story with lots of action and I enjoyed it very much Set during World War II it includes archaeology in Egypt the Blitz in London Nazi’s doing dastardly deeds an international cast of characters Prime Minister Churchill an ancient castle ghosts mummies and other supernatural shenanigans and three courageous teens Edmond Peabody his adopted brother Chander and their friend Amelia Tripp are all 15 years old and eager to help with the war effort The boys have been sent to the ancestral castle in the English countryside to stay with their grandfather Colonel Peabody where Amelia has been sent by her parents as well With a plot cooked up by the Nazi’s to foil they just might get their chance to contribute to the fight I always appreciate action packed stories and this one had plenty With vivid descriptions of bombing during the Blitz and other hardships of the war I felt like I was there There were some pretty tense moments but also some comic relief especially through the antics of one of the castle’s resident ghosts I look forward to reading of this series in the future
