My daughter loved this book so much she asked for the kindle version as well. My sons enjoyed it to. It has adventure, funny dialogue, and I was pleasantly surprised at how well researched it was, and how the author jumped back and forth in time, and brought the two stories together. I sat down to read it at my daughter's urging and didn't put it down. It is a quick read because the story is fascinating and fun. And who doesn't like finding a lost city? We hope to see more from Ms. Stauffer.

"Matt's spent years resenting his father and the Church, but a once-in-a-lifetime archaeology trip forces Matt to face more than he bargained for as he and his father unearth a city that's been lost for centuries."
This was a really good story. I am interested in archaeology, so it was fun to read. I especially like how the author gave me a glimpse into what life with the Gadianton robbers might have been like. I wasn't expecting Teom's story at all. It was cool how the author wrote Matt's and Teom's storylines together. The characters were believable and real, and I wanted to be there with them. I read the whole book in one sitting. It seemed almost to short. I wanted to read more! Will there be a sequel, maybe?

It was a great read. I loved the plot and characters. It was very refreshing to read a book where swearing and sex is not flaunted in every paragraph. I didn't want to put the book down and the ending was very satisfying. I totally recommend this book to both young and older adults. Parents can feel safe when it's in their child's hands.
